Fourth of July Dinner

Seems like there are three or four threads regarding the Fourth AND food. Since you put this thread in the "Today's Menu" sub-forum, K-Girl, I'll join you and S&P here. Both of your meals look yummy. Somehow, I just can't remember to take photos when we visit the kids. Too much other stuff going on at the table to think of it, I guess.

We had grilled hot dogs and kielbasa, potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, corn/tomato/black bean salad with Arizona Dreaming, ground Chipotle, and Aleppo pepper seasonings, and a standard tossed salad - Goober's request. We have leftovers of everything but the salad. Guess he really wanted salad!

No dessert. Well, there was dessert, but no one wanted anything after dinner. I just had a small dish of vanilla ice cream with some pineapple sauteed in butter and brown sugar.

But, but...if it's CANNED pineapple, how can it be FRESH pineapple? Unless all the other pineapple in cans is spoiled before canning...

The shawarma/gyro meat came out really good. It held together perfectly on the rotisserie. Craig started a thread on it, under BBQ/grilling I think. I'll post recipe there later, it needs some tweaks in spices and cooking time, but overally we were pretty happy with it. Homemade cumin flat bread, tzatziki, and feta for sammies. Watermelon, cucumber, mint salad with a slightly different tzatziki dressing, not as much garlic and no olive oil in it.

I made both tzatzikis with mint this time, usually make them with dill. I think I like the mint better personally.

Looks good! I make my tzatziki with both - 1 tbsp. dill and 1 tsp. mint to two cups of yogurt.

Yummers, guys!

We ended up back at our new favorite Italian Mexican restaurant. Lasagna to die for. I would have taken a pic, but we already et it all...
