Last night, Tuesday, September 7th, five of the gourmet girls had the opportunity to give a small presentation at Andrea's ward Relief Society night. Andrea was generous enough to have matching aprons made for all of us. I think we looked pretty legit! :) We had so much fun explaining the format of our group to the ladies who attended. We shared favorite recipes, favorite gourmet memories, told them about the blog, and of course had food to sample! Andrea made Liege Waffles on the spot! We also displayed a cornucopia of table settings and displayed some of the cookbooks we like to use. We loved getting to know the ladies of the Holladay 27th Ward!

Lynley Preparing Watermelon Bites
These were originally made by Laura Stevens at our August 2010 gourmet night. They are small pieces of watermelon, topped with honey goat cheese, pistachio nuts and a piece of arugula.
Favorite Chocolate "Go-To" Cake
We actually haven't made this for an official gourmet night, but it is a new favorite of all of ours. It is in the new "Keeping Up" Cookbook.
Lynley originally brought this tasty appetizer to our October 2008 gourmet night.
Lara brought this to our very first gourmet night!
I make them quite often and everyone loves them!
