The semester ended last Thursday and many of us are going our separate ways for the month-long summer holiday...back to our homes in the U.S., Canada, Brussels, and France, some of us permanently. So it was only fitting that we have a last hoorah to celebrate the end of the school year and all the good times we've had together over the past months. Being the last hoorah, we had to make things special, no average potluck would do. No, this was going to be a Dominican Barbecue, Bobby Flay Throw-Down style.
The night started, like all good nights, with homemade mojitos and appetizers.
These little mofonguitos were a cinch to put together and a huge hit. You can find the recipe to make your own at Tia Clara's website.
No fiesta is complete without a good bottle of wine!
After a few drinks and some snackity-snacks, everyone's tummies were rumbling. Luckily, Davíd was manning the grill.
Oh my! I´m pretty sure Bobby Flay has nothing on Davíd.
Just look at those smiling faces, they agree.
One last glance at that gorgeous stack of manly meat, just for kicks. YUM!
Next up, passion fruit (chinola) mousse, and my mom´s world famous cookie bars (recipe coming soon).
With happy tummies, we spent the rest of the night laughing and chatting and reminiscing.
I´m gonna miss these crazy kids!
