Dinner 5-26-2016 ~ The Weekend Starts Now (kinda)

The first official weekend of summer is quickly approaching. We're kicking it off early with ribs, fresh corn and tomato salad, potato salad, and baked beans. I'm cheating - the ribs are already in the slow-cooker smelling the house up. If one of us wants dessert, we can just reach for another rib.

What's brewing at your place?

My weekend started April 9, the day after my retirement luncheon. Now Saturdays and Sundays are just days when stores are busy and there is too much tourist traffic when it's warm.

For dinner tonight it's burgers on the grill, corn on the cob, and I just finished making a batch of cole slaw.

I'm grilling some green bell pepper, onion and Italian sausages for sandwiches in crusty rolls. I'll also be grilling corn on the cob.

Mmm....your pizza looks delish, Joey. Great sounding dinners, all!

I took some country style pork ribs out of the freezer to par cook and finish on the grill. I didn't get them out in time for an afternoon grill as I like to do though, so that'll be tomorrow's dinner.

I think I'll build a refried bean, pulled pork, and rice burrito, smother it with salsa verde, and have an avocado on the side.

Hot Dogs! Tonight kicks off an annual summer event here in town. There is live music every Thursday evening on the Plaza and there is a very good hot dog street vendor there.

Congrats tenspeed!! The other thing about weekends now, it seems like every other day we say "it's Friday again"? TGIF no longer applies, as it's just a reminder of how fast time flies.

Great looking and sounding meals tonight! We took two huge beautiful rib eyes from the freezer today but I'll save them to grill on Sun. or Mon.

I'm doing some pan pork chops tonight with mushroom pesto sauce. Steamed broccolini will be the mandatory green veggie, and I'll do up some orzo for the SC.
