mother of pearl

yet again it's been a doozy of a friday.
do much prep, so many baked goods, so little fridge space... but it's all done & put away - yahoo!

this week i have rotisserie chicken. it's a mixture of light & dark meat; enough to serve two with leftovers  (probably); comes with a side of homemade bbq sauce; & costs $20 per package.

there are also southern-style crab cakes with corn, peppers, herbs, lemon & a cajun spice blend. i ran out of room & had to freeze several packages, but there are a few fresh that i've already crisped up. they come 8 per package and cost $16.

there are 3 fresh salads to accompany the proteins as well - all $5 each.
the first is a creamy blue cheese potato salad with lovely new potatoes from noggins, radishes, celery, herbs & green onions.
the second is a mediterranean pasta salad with grilled zucchini & corn, roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic & basil.
and last but not least is the trusty quinoa salad - this week it has cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, dill, tarragon, basil, mint and lots of lemon.

i also made fresh batches of maple bourbon & honey mustard bbq sauces.

due to lynne's influence there is also an inordinate amount of sweets again this weekend -
cookies & cream cheesecakes
peanut butter, caramel & banana cheesecakes
pecan, raisin & chocolate shortbread squares
chocolate coconut macaroons
lime & raspberry meringue tarts
snickers brownies
oatmeal, cranberry & white chocolate cookies
lime cupcakes with blueberry frosting
rhubarb cupcakes with strawberry frosting
chocolate-chocolate cupcakes
carrot cream cheese cupcakes
and of course - red velvet with raspberry frosting cupcakes

okee dokee see ya in a few hours!
