Tasty Tuesday - Supper Club!

Saturday night was supper club and it was our turn to cook! I had to work until 4:30pm and people were coming over at 7 so I was freaking out on my 40 minute drive home. Thankfully, I called my momma and she helped calm me down. I also did a lot to prepare on Friday!

Here is the menu:

Specialty Drink
Pomegranate vodka
Splash of Blueberry Pomegranate juice
Garnished with Blackberries & Raspberries

Oh, and jello shots. Keepin' it classy here, people!

Mango salsa (a la Costco) and chips
Artichoke bruschetta

No recipe for the artichoke bruschetta..I kind of made it up as I went.
I just sliced up a loaf of french baguette into thin slices and put then in the oven at 350* until they got a little crispy.
Spread some cream cheese mixed with minced garlic on each piece of bread.
Then put a mixture of chopped artichokes, chopped tomatoes, little bit of olive oil, salt & pepper on each piece of bread and VOILA! They were a big hit!

Was planning on serving rolls but I forgot to put them in the oven. Oops!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
(Recipe from Pioneer Woman)

25 whole Oreos
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

(Or you can cheat like me and buy the pre-made chocolate pie crust)

1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 package (8 Ounce) Softened Cream Cheese
1-¼ cup Powdered Sugar
1 package (8 Ounce) Cool Whip, Thawed

Preparation Instructions


Crush the Oreos until they’re fine crumbs. Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add in the thawed Cool Whip and beat mixture until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.

Pour filling into crust, evening out the top with a knife or spatula. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

(I added some dark chocolate shavings to give it that extra chocolate!)
A little guitar hero towards the end of the night!
