Let's start with the main feature of the evening; baked beans. The baked beans were everyone's favorite dish of the evening. The secret ingredient was Red Hot Lover Red Pepper Jam.
Have you had this stuff? It's fantastic, and it's made in Oklahoma. The Prairie Gypsy's, creators of this delicious jam, have a Red Hot Lover Baked Bean recipe that is beyond words. Jump over to The Prairie Gypsy's website for this recipe. You won't be disappointed.
The costar dishes of the evening were brisket and pasta salad. Saturday's brisket was my first to make. I think it turned out well. I mean, no one ended up sick or hungry. I call that a win!
I need to work on my food photos. Next week they'll be better. Anyway, I think the food was a hit. The pit crew was nothing but complementary; which is a good feeling.
Here's a picture of the whole spread.
I only have two more weeks to be Racecar Woman. I'm looking for suggestions, because I'm running out of ideas. Please give me your ideas!!! The only rule...no chicken. It's some bad luck thing. I don't really get it.
