I made a variety of dishes to make a more elaborate meal. I marinated some pork tenderloin slices in a honey lime marinade.
Like I said earlier, we got rained out Sunday night and ended up eating inside. A lot later than usual about eight at night. This was our feast.
The fruit salad I made was a huge hit. Even the picky eaters didn't pick out the fruit they didn't like. I think it was due to the dressing I made for it.
Grilled garlic cheese and herb bread was amazing and so easy to make. Just slather spread on both sides of bread slices, put back together as a loaf, wrap in foil and grill. The entire loaf was gone at dinner.
I absolutely love these tie dyed cupcakes. They're so bright and cheery. The cupcakes themselves are rainbow colored along with the frosting.
A fully balanced meal. Fruits, veggies, meat and some bread. Three quarters of it grilled too. It's amazing what you can grill.
I love this close-up shot of the fruit salad on my plate. How the picture draws your eye to the salad and the rest of the picture is blurred.
See the gorgeous rainbows inside the cupcakes? Each one looks like this under the cupcake liner. Check out the next picture after I took a bite. Gorgeous right? These are so easy to make. Just take a white or yellow cake mix, follow mixing directions, then split into 6 bowls and color with rainbow colors (1 color per bowl) and then layer in cupcake tins. Bake as usual.
It was great to only have to have a fancy meal this week as opposed to three meals the previous weeks. I did spend much of Sunday prepping everything. But I love spending time making a great meal.
