4th of July Blue House BBQ

We always say the best food in Tahoe City is in the blue house. And If you came to our 4th of July BBQ, you definitely will agree..............................

I think we started cooking at about 10 in the morning....... Anna was baking chocolate pecan pie (to die for)............Marion was making her "life altering" pasta salad with lots of goodies in it............and House "dad" Collin was chopping up wood for the BBQ..............I choose to make some authentic Korean BBQ and a strawberry goat cheese tart for appetizer.

We then took a break and went to the Beach. Marcy came up with Amber and a bunch of friends from Reno. We were all sitting at the beach and then all of a sudden it just became really windy so we had to hide back in the blue house



A foto of my super easy strawberry goat cheese tart (recipe will be posted soon)



All the Banchan for Korean BBQ

I love Korean BBQ.....................because it is a balance of protein and greens..............I skipped the rice that day because we had too much food, but you can never skip the banchan (Korean side dishes) that go with it.

And that is what is so special about Korean BBQ...............You wrap your meat (marinated with Korean BBQ sauce) in a piece of lettuce and then you add this Korean soybean paste and any of the side dishes that you like.............roll it up like a spring roll and there you have it....................your meat and your salad all in one hand :)

The BBQ was super fun........................We ate and ate and drank and drank till we couldn't do it anymore............and then we all headed out to the beach to see some firework. Because of where we were siting, we actually managed to see the firework from both north and south shore, pretty cool eh?

I had to graduate early that night because of (you know what).................... but I was told that everyone really enjoyed Anna's pecan pie outside my bedroom :P


Great job team....... and thanks for the company........we should do this again sometime soon
