Just an last minute grill day

After several bday meals out last week, including a great dinner at our local Espetus, dinner & a movie night @drafthouse I fugured it was a cook at home day.

Using a new find, cherry bbq sauce ( picked up on my recent trip to Traverse City, Mi) – the menu called for grilled chicken thighs, an adapted  vegan adapted spicy sweet mango-jicama salad, homestyle baked beans, coffee-cocoa nibs rubbed eggplant planks, roasted broccoli and a few pals willing to bring string beans, patato salad and some sweets for after. Friend added green beans and potato salad..

I will post the recipes for the Jicama & Mango salad shortly, and well share more on the Baked Beans fiasco too
