Dinner Club #4 Farm Fresh (Recipe Mojo Beef Kabobs)

We had our fourth dinner club this past weekend and had such a great time. Each and every time we have dinner club makes me wish that I had the money and resources to have people over every single weekend. I absolutley am in my element when a group of friends are gathered around the dinner table enjoying each others company. I love that our every other month dinner club forces me to entertain on a regular basis because I love it!

Our theme for this month was Farm Fresh. The idea behind this theme was to encourage everyone to use the bounty of fresh ingredients that are available in our area this time of year. We enjoyed a wonderful Mozzarella and Tomato Basil Salad, Sesame Green Beans, Vidalia Onion Bake, Ted’s Special Mini Loaves, Mojo Beef Kabobs and Strawberry Shortcake. We also had two delicious kinds of Sangria, Strawberry Daiquiris and frozen Margaritas. Everything was delicious, the company was wonderful and we had a great time. If you haven’t started a dinner club yet and you love friends and food, do not wait any longer! Get one started today… you will love it!

Before I leave you with a recipe, I have to give a little shout out to Anne of Cooking with Anne. A couple of months ago I won a copy of the The Healthy Beef Cookbook and $100 gift card from her blog. The premise of the giveaway was that once I received the cookbook and gift card, I was to try a recipe out of the cookbook and blog about it.  The Healthy Beef Cookbook is put out by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and is a cookbook that anyone who loves to cook with beef needs. This cookbook is going to be a staple at our house, especially over the summer grilling season.

The first recipe we tried were the Mojo Beef Kabobs and they were fantastic. Ignore the photograph… I’m sure that the Cattlemen are probably cringing at the site of the charred edges of beef on the kabob, but my husband started brushing  the sauce on the kabobs right before he took them off the grill and the edges of them caught on fire!! The kabobs were fabulous, nonetheless, and we will be making them time and time again. Thank you Anne and the Beef Assosiation! Readers, you can plan on seeing a lot more recipes from this cookbook on Dine & Dish in the very near future.

      I really need to get a dinner club started again! I love the farm fresh theme, and the dishes everyone shared sound so perfect for this time of year. I’ll also be adding that cookbook to my wish list!

      Your dinner party looks incredible! Like you, I wish I entertained more often because I love it so much.

      I found you through Michele at Life, Lightly Salted. If you ever plan another “Adopt a Blogger,” I would love to participate and adopt a newbie. Michele was so sweet to me when I first began blogging last year that it would be a pleasure to pass it on and support someone just starting out.

      Wow, everything looks so good. The table is beautiful, the food looks delicious. And I am so jealous that you have a dinner club. Non of my good friends is into cooking beyond the fact that they got to eat to survive – not much fun. Maybe this is why I blog about food… to share it with someone…

      I was looking for a steak idea for dinner tonight and went to food gawker and found this. We grill out at least once per week all year around (which isn’t easy when it snows but my husband is a good sport about it) and typically just use liberal amounts of Montreal Steak seasoning if we’re cooking beef.

      I plan to serve the kabobs with rappini sauted in olive oil, hot pepper flakes and garlic and thick slices of grilled rustic cheese bread. I’m inspired thanks to your post!
