S & P's birthday dinner takes the cake. I must say Everyone's dinner looks and sounds terrific today.

I made slow roasted oven baked bbq spareribs and home-made bbq sauce. Baked potato and sweet/ sour cole slaw and Cornmeal muffins. I am about to burst too.

when i get to an asian market, i'll pick up some baby bok choy and steam them with shiitake caps in a little chicken stock, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, and butter, finishing the liquid into a sauce with a cornstarch slurry and serve it over the sliced london broil.

for camping trips, i like to make a rub of s&p, dried thyme, oregano, parsley, basil, paprika, a splash of maggi, and some fresh garlic. sometimes the rub becomes whatever i happen to pull out of the spice rack. it marinates while we hike, then it's cooked on a small pack grill over some raked out coals of the campfire. pre-nuked, then wrapped-in-foil potatoes are shoved into the coals to reheat as the meat cooks.

all of this said, we went shopping to get my boy a new shirt, slacks, shoes, and a tie for his upcoming school concert (he's playing the tamborine and singing), so we ended up eating at crapplebees since a lot of places were closed or were closing early due to the snow storm.
