family dinner week 2

Like I said - I am loving this weekly dinner thing. It is so.much.fun.
This week we had our good friends Jake & Kailey over. We know them from church originally and they are one of the neatest couples we know! Love them!



 I thought long and hard about this menu when our CSA box arrived and inside were the most delicious looking figs & peaches. (Among other yummy things!!) I knew the flavor combo would be a winner but as I was doing my morning blog reading I came across the words {grilled peach and fig sliders} on James from Bleubird Blog's instagram post about the Kinfolk gathering dinner she attended. 

Ummm...yummm!

How could I not? I decided to pair it with spicy sweet potato fries and the broccoli was an afterthought, but I do love broccoli, especially oven roasted with parmesan! 

You will be surprised how many sweet potato fries one sweet potato yields. I used 2 for 4 people!


I paired the spicy sweet potato fries with a simple garlic lemon aioli
3/4 C mayo, 2 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice, 3 garlic cloves minced, salt & pepper to taste.






Everything turned out so yummy and it was such a fun night!


I may have made another Pazooki. Maybe.

Sasquatch just love having company! Haha

  1. That's a really good habit to get into--being a host and inviting people over. I've never made sweet potato fries before...actually, I don't remember ever eating them before, but they sound good!
