Staff Fiesta at PBTS

On Tuesday evening, we had a little fiesta for the staff at PBTS. Our chef and friend Rich Pascalli and his wife Sonia catered the event. I came to Rich with the idea of doing a Mexican food feast (a little off the beaten path of a traditional holiday meal), and he was thrilled about creating a menu for us. Let's just say my mouth started watering while reading it, and the actual food was even better than I imagined.

Here is what we feasted on:

Mexican Farmers’ Market Salad with sliced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, red onion, shredded carrots, and crumbled Mexican Farmers’ Cheese, tossed in a basil and garlic vinaigrette.

Homemade Guacamole, Salsa, and Black Bean Dips with homemade corn tortilla chips

Grilled Skirt Steak Enchiladas

Chicken Tacos served with accoutrements of shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

Mexican Rice with cumin, sweet onion, cilantro, black beans, and fresh lime juice.

Toasted Coconut Flan with fresh homemade whipped cream and strawberries. It was amazing! Here are a few pictures of the spread.

I could make a meal just out of this!

My plate filled to the brim...

We are so blessed to have an amazing staff, and we all had a great time eating, exchanging secret santa gifts, and playing a few rounds of Catch phrase. We all teased Colby that he practiced at home before he brought it in because he was clearly the champion.

Of course, there were some shenanigans and general merry-making going on as well. Michael proved to be very skilled at the blow gun he received.

If you live here or come to the beach, check out Pascalli Foods. Chef Rich could create this wonderful Mexican feast or help you come up with your own menu for your next party or event, or just for a fun family dinner!
