New Friends, New recipes

J. told me the other day that he hadn't seen a close friend of his in awhile. His friend goes to school here in town, but we rarely see him. However, J. of course never called JC, so I took it upon myself to invite him over for dinner. I figured he could use a home cooked meal, and I could use a guinea pig for my recipes. He brought a friend, and we all had a great time! It was such a great night, and I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we did. There is nothing better than getting compliments on a meal, and so I invited over two hungry college boys :). Good idea? I think so!

Buffalo Chicken Minis

1 cup Buffalo sauce
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Shred up chicken in medium sauce pan with sauce, water, butter and Worcestershire. Cook on Medium high heat for 10-15 minutes, until sauce has boiled down a little bit. Serve on mini buns with blue cheese dressing.

Blue Cheese Dressing

Put the sour cream, mayo, buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and blue cheese. Pulse until combined, but still chunky.

Southwestern Coleslaw
