Thursday Night Supper Club Version 1.0

Thursday evening, Lynn and I invited some friends over for a special supper of Graziano's Italian sausage, big green salad w/ veggies and Mocha Punch. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the food and the great conversation.

I put a note on my Facebook page and there seemed to be some interest about the menu and how I prepared the food.

Here we go:

Graziano's Sausage Sandwiches: 1/4 pound patty grilled, served on a hard roll w/ pizza sauce and garlic spread. Mozzarella cheese and about 10 minutes in a 350 degrees oven, wrapped on foil to melt the cheese. Serve piping hot!

Big Green Salad: Two bags of Romain Lettuce and as much of the following as you feel you can handle! Red, yellow and orange peppers, red onion, carrots and cucumbers. Top with a bit of red wine vinaigrette.

Mocha Punch: Ingredients: 6 cups water, 1/2 cup instant chocolate drink mix, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup instant coffee granules, 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, 1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream.

Directions: In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Remove from the heat. Add drink mix, sugar and coffee; stir until dissolved. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
About 30 minutes before serving, pour mixture into a large punch bowl. Add ice cream by scoopfuls; stir until partially melted.

Yield:
20-25 servings (about 5 quarts).

Now it is all up to you!

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

PS: I almost forgot...Special thanks to Barb Betz for providing the fixins for the punch!

Hey Big Bro....

I have to have the kids import the sausage to Clear Lake from Ankeny. The Fareway in Ankeny does carry the good stuff but not in Clear Lake.

You want I should pack some in dry ice and ship to you?????

Maybe we could work out a deal!
