Guests Coming in Two Hours and Nothing is Cooked Yet!

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

What do you make for dinner when your guests are coming in two hours and you have planned zero zip zero nada…

I go into overdrive and become creative with what is in my refrigerator.

Now to be honest, I did marinate strip steaks but nothing else.

Appetizers for 4


Cheese platter with grapes

Four different cheeses, nuts, fig spread, and diced fruit ✅

Next caprese salad

½ medium mozzarella balls and ½ small mozzarella balls

Marinated in oil and spices

Basil from the garden

Chopped red onion

Salt and pepper to taste

Balsamic vinaigrette ✅

Salad hmm…

Spinach and arugula

Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries

Mandarin oranges

Candied pecans

Red onion

And lite poppy seed dressing ✅

Now for dinner:

Potatoes roasted on a pan with onion soup mix and olive oil.

Broccoli grilled with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.

Asparagus in the oven with extra virgin olive oil and chopped garlic.

Next to skirt steaks : Cook on the grill without seasoning,

(they have already been marinated)

Four boneless chicken breasts cut along the edge to make eight pieces. Marinate for one hour in oil with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, one peach, peach jam, and teriyaki sauce.

Cook in oven at 350, or grill ✅

Be creative, have fun, don’t panic, I have your back. We can all be creative together!
