The Taco Party
The latest from Deathmatch Land.
Ladies Strike Back.
The Taco Party.
21 Girls. 7 Courses of Tacos. 0 Guys.
except for Dietz and I...
I actually spent several hours putting together the guest list for this one and that proved to be time well spent - one of the guests told me "You know, if you asked most of us individually if we'd like to attend a party of all girls, we would have said no, but this was fucking awesome."
The Taco Lineup:
1st Course: Molly and Megan
"Vegetarian" option topped with chicharron and EZ cheese
2nd Course: Joe
Braised Tongue with queso anejo and Salvadoran crema
Slow Roasted Chipotle Pork Shoulder
3rd Course: Nikki
Braised Chicken with Mexican crema
4th Course: Dietz
Beer Battered Haddock with red cabbage, tomatillo salsa, and crema
5th Course: Larissa
Chorizo and crema verde
6th Course: Gemma
Almond tuille with cherry cream (there were also little plastic babies sticking out of each one. amazing.)
7th Course: Laura
Chocotacos from scratch
For booze we had a large assortment of Vinho Verde, Rose, and Beer. I mindlessly purchased a mixed case of red wine on one of the hottest nights of the summer, but then I exchanged it the next day for cold Coors light and Dr. McGillicutty's to drink on the way to AC/DC at Gillette Stadium (Thanks Spencer!)
Tequila proceeded to enable a dance party that was much sexier than that of the sausage party (sorry guys). Thanks to Katie Schier for taking pictures and agreeing to come to a party with no guys. Thanks to Sarah Beliveau for providing flowers, and also for contributing to our very first police visit at 4:00 a.m. Seems one of our neighbors didn't take to kindly to us singing at the top of our lungs on the front steps with the stereo blasting from inside. Oh well...
Everyone's Taco was delicious.
