Drop Dead Gorgeous Dinner

This weekend we had a Wolf/Wilsey Weekend where we watched Drop Dead Gorgeous and celebrated all things Minnesotan! 

I literally made nothing but the ideas were mine!  It was a pretty relaxing evening for me!  We had St. Paul Pork Products: Pork Tenderloin, "Who knows the last time it's been cleaned" (twice cooked) Shrimp Ceviche, Broccoli Salad, Lutheran Funeral Jell-O Salad, Grape Kool-Aid for the Blood of Christ, Minnesota Nice Wine, and Annette's third degree beer.   For dessert, we had coffee and bars. 

St. Paul Pork Products: Pork Tenderloin 
My dad cooked up some pork tenderloin on the grill. 

"Who knows the last time it was cleaned" (twice cooked) Shrimp Ceviche
My mom makes this excellent shrimp ceviche but she gets a little nervous at the idea of shrimp being cooked by the acidity of limes (true story).  So she cooks it before she puts it in the ceviche so that no one gets sick like those beauty queens. 

Broccoli Salad
We just picked up some broccoli salad from the grocery store

Lutheran Funeral Jell-O Salad
This is an old recipe we've used for years

6oz of Raspberry Jell-O Mix
20oz of frozen raspberries
1 cup of whipping cream
6oz of cream cheese
2 cups of hot water
12 large marshmallows cut into small pieces

1. Dissolve Jell-O in hot water.  
2. Add raspberries along with the juice.
3. Pour into a pan and chill until firm.
4. Combine cream, marshmallows, cream cheese, and whip them until stiff.
5. Spread over Jell-O and chill. 

Grape Kool-Aid for the Blood of Christ
I made Grape Kool-Aid according to package directions and poured them in "communion cups."  

Yes, we improvised with shot glasses.

Yes, we are going to hell.......

Minnesota Nice Wine
We have "You Betcha Blush", "Hot Dish Red" and "Wobegon White"

Annette's third degree beer
We wrapped Lindsey and Jake's hands with Ace bandage wrap while holding a Miller Lite

And no Lutheran shindig would be complete with coffee and bars

These are Patty's famous Hershey Bar Bars!  YUM!!!!

The whole Wilsey clan got to meet Miss Olivia too!  It was a fabulous weekend!
