      Oooo... reading this thread makes me hungry! Only 2 hours until lunch

      We're having a Kill 'N Grill pool party for the 4th.... You kill it; We grill it!

      I'm making sides and pool sangria:
      Mom's Deviled Eggs
      7 Layer Dip
      Fruit & Veggie Trays
      Maybe the melon and prosciutto, just cuz I luv that
      And a big chocolate chip cookie with red/white/blue m&ms in a flag design

      Pool Sangria Recipe:
      A couple of cups of frozen mixed berries (raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, blackberry)
      2 liter of Diet Sprite
      1 bottle of Chardonnay

        wow, none of you have heard of frog eye salad?? my grandma used to make it & it was my favorite as a child(maybe it's a mid-west thing). It's kind of an ambrosia -type salad. Let me find a recipe & I'll post it. standby!

        P.S. the "frog eyes" are those tiny round pastas that you never know what they're used for in the pasta aisle at the store. Kinda like the consistancy of tapioca when cooked.

        Edit: here's a recipe that's almost exactly like mine

          This recipie is also really good with 1/2 soda water and 1/2 sprite if someone doesnt want it too sweet. You can also add a splash on cointreau

            Susan, that salad sounds good!

            Autjo-the sangria looks really pretty with lemon, lime, and orange slices floating in it

              I heart real sangria. My pool recipe is the one I use for parties because it is mix & go ready - no measuring or cutting and stays cold with the frozen berries :)

                      Our standby recipe for gatherings is bruschetta. We've experimented with it quite a bit so I had to share our favorite recipe with you girls. It's from cooking light (called bruschetta pomodoro):

                      Ingredients

                      * 2 cups minced plum tomato (about 3/4 pound)
                      * 1 1/2 teaspoons capers
                      * 2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives
                      * 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
                      * 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
                      * 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
                      * 1/4 teaspoon salt
                      * 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
                      * 1/8 teaspoon pepper
                      * 10 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette, toasted

                      Preparation

                      Combine all the ingredients except French bread; cover and let stand 30 minutes. Drain the tomato mixture. Top each bread slice with 1 tablespoon of tomato mixture.

                      * We also rub garlic cloves over the bread after toasting to give it an extra kick of flavor. The basil and tomatoes come from our garden so it's super fresh and yummy!
