Hi, friends. Urban Girl, here.
We’ve been experimenting with food storage more and more here in the Emergency Essentials Test Kitchen, and we hope you’ve been enjoying the recipes coming through in our emails (if you aren’t signed up for those, click on the blue button near the top of the blog to sign up!).
I’ve been thinking about having a dinner party in the next couple of weeks, and I decided I want to kill two birds with one stone and have a food storage dinner party. So I’ve been looking through the recipes on BePrepared.com and I’ve come up with three dinner parties I could pull together. Here’s what I’m thinking (click each image to see the recipe):
Appetizer: 7-layer Dip
Entrée: Beef Brisket Taco
Dessert: Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Crisps
Appetizer: Creamy Tuscan Tomato Soup
Entrée: Linguini Chicken with Vegetables
Dessert: Peach "Shortcake" with Strawberry Basil Sauce
Appetizer: Zucchini Corn Fritters
Entrée: Cajun Chicken and Pasta
Dessert: Strawberry-Banana-Peach Cobbler
And for drinks, I’ll make one of the delicious food storage mocktails
we whipped up in the Test Kitchen. Yum!
I’ve tried all these recipes, and I love every single one. So now I just have to decide which menu to use. I’m leaning toward the Southern-inspired dinner, but man… I really love 7-Layer Dip.
Which of these dinner parties would you throw? Or would you go a different route for a food storage dinner party?
