A WEDGE BETWEEN US

When I put Life As She Does It into play, I thought it would be difficult to make the four things I do well seem cohesive.  But when I have days like the one I'm telling you about, it all seems to come together seamlessly!

I have the honor and privilege of being the "Caterer to the Stars" for our local minor-league baseball team, The Sugar Land SKEETERS, this season.  I absolutely love it and hope they choose me again next season!  But this particular day was pretty epic for all things LIfe As She Does It, which is a creative services business made up of speaking, singing, writing and cooking.

I catered for them from a "She Menu" they chose called Red White & ‘Cue.  It was an amazing smoked brisket The Hubster made, roasted corn on the cob, pepper poppers,  house potato bread, an iceberg wedge, and a from-scratch no-bake cherry cheesecake.  BUT!  I also got to have a book signing at Constellation Field, talk in the Radio Box, and sing God Bless America before the Seventh Inning!!  It was an amazing day, filled with blessings and fun, and family and friends.  

I can't give you The Hubster's recipe to his outstanding brisket (I'm sworn to secrecy!), and I've given you the pepper popper recipe before, so today, I decided to go with the recipe for the dressing for the iceberg wedge, as well as how it was assembled.  It was just so pretty!  You can see in the pic for yourself!  The dressing recipe is very versatile as well, because if you are not a blue cheese lover, you can omit it and have a really lovely and creamy ranch!
