Summer screams Tequila, doesn’t it?  This month I am participating in a fabulous virtual progressive dinner just in time for Labor Day!  I made sumptuous shrimp for our appetizer and they are refreshing and light, perfect for a summer barbecue.  If you don’t have an outside grill, these can be made just as easily in your oven.  I have featured culantro in the recipe, which is an herb I happen to love.  It is  a different plant to cilantro entirely–it has a stronger flavor and is fabulous when paired with basil if you are new to this herb.  It is very popular in Latin countries and happily it will grow it year round in my patio herb garden.

Welcome to another edition of Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a progressive dinner party. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.

 We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.

This month’s theme is Summer Barbecue hosted by Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake. You’ll love all the summertime recipes that will be perfect for your next cookout or Labor Day gathering.
