Anyway, I wish I took photos of the food we ate, but sadly I wasn't able to bring my own camera. I didn't know Beljo brought his; but when I knew, the food wasn't photogenic anymore. But that's alright.
Kimberly did a very yummy Tiramisu (for the first time) and her specialty, the Blueberry Cheesecake (both from the ICAN Cookbook - one great source of desserts if you will ask me).
But something else caught my fancy. It's the homemade Grape Sorbet Auntie Nancy, a friend of my Aunt (Kimberly's mom), brought to the party. It looks very delish and tastes good, believe me. It's frozen pureed grapes with all other different ingredients. What I really liked about this is that it has bits and pieces of real grapes all over (yumm). Though it's quite sweeter than I expected (I'm not too much into sugar), I find it refreshing.
Here's some Concord Grape Sorbet recipe I found over at aarn!'s Flickr,
4-lbs of grapes (rinsed and stemmed) and 1c. of water were blended and put over low heat in a sauce pan. 3/4c. sugar and 1T. vodka were added to the warm pulp, and stirred until the sugar had dissolved. i think that the mixture was transferred to a mixing bowl, stirred over an ice bath for a little while until slightly chilled, then moved to the freezer. while in the freezer, the blended grape mixture was removed and stirred every 30-45 minutes for 2-3hrs, until at the desired consistency.
And here's a very nice article with photos, and some recipes of the grape sorbet. You have to check this out! Enjoy! :)
