Girls Night Out with Lovable Foods
With busy work schedules and hectic personal lives, it can hard to make time for girl time with friends. About two years, one of my friends and I decided to start a book club/ social club so we could all get together and hang out once a quarter. The reading of books quickly became more of us talking about life and drinking wine the whole time so we decided to make it more social by doing outings once a quarter around Atlanta. Rather it be a bowling night or a dinner at a nice restaurant it was a great way to spend time with old friends and make new ones as well. For our latest outing we partnered with local Atlanta catering company, Lovable Foods to host a cooking class. Unlike me most of my friends rarely step in the kitchen on a nightly basis, so I thought this would be a great way to show them how to make healthy foods in under 30 minutes.
The theme for our class that evening was caribbean cuisine. Our menu consisted of a curry spiced chicken salad served on a bed of lettuce, a mango jicama salad, two tropical salsas, spiced shrimp with a an avocado dressing, grilled pineapple, coconut bread pudding, grilled flank steak, and dirty rice. The class was very interactive and we all had the opportunity to help prepare each dish. I enjoyed everything but my favorite dishes were the chicken salad, the salsa, the spiced shrimp with avocado dressing. I loved the avocado dressing so much that I make now on a regular basis. It's so easy and you can a big batch at once and use it throughout the week. It goes great on salads, tacos, and all meats.
If you live in Atlanta and are interested in hosting an event with Lovable Foods. I highly recommend you contact them.
