butterflied pork loin, on the grill with BBQ sauce, grilled asparagus, corn on the cob also on the grill...

Lots of pork left over.. cooked it to 145F.. very juicy... asparagus was coated in olive oil before grilling. Corn was just shucked and tossed on the grill. Fantastic!! I like the corn cooked directly on the grill better than in the husk soaked then grilled.

A movie outside. Cool idea. Kids don't know what they are missing.
Maybe you could set the laptop on the hood of your old Caddy and run the speakers through the windows Tell 'em this is how we used to watch movies.

Oh, so what do you do with the spuds to keep them from turning black? Cook and chill right away? Do they need lemon juice?
Sweet with a nice tangy taste afterwards, thats why I wanted to keep the Dill seed and Celery seed in the recipe to balance it out somewhat.

I cook the potatoes then chill them right away. Also, I don't cut them up until they are cold and ready to go in the salad.

We used to have a drive in theater right down the road from us, literally a mile away. Unfortunately it closed, and I think there are maybe two left in the entire Chicago area, one being way up north of here almost to Wisconsin and the other down south of here not sure where.
Growing up I saw Star Wars in a drive in, then after I moved out here we saw Independence Day at the drive in and the last movie we watched was at the one down here before it closed and was the Perfect Storm.

That would be pretty funny doing it in the Cadillac!

it ended up being a typical chicken stew of sorts.
b/less,s/less chicken breasts browned in butter and bacon grease, beef brauts sliced and browed the same way, new potatoes that I browned on all sides first simply in butter, carrots that I slowly poached, CB's bean with bacon soup, undiluted, fried 5 strips of apple smoked bacon, and all went in the dutch oven for 2 hours. directions were, stir up from the bottom to get the sauce and chicken the brauts, potatoes and carrots, with lots of juice and all those beans too, toss a salad and there you go.

My ribs came out good, too. In spite of being left covered in foil, simmering in beer and liquid smoke too long. They were still juicy and tender, but the meat pulled away from the bone more than I like to see. My timing got thrown off when I ran out of propane and I had no idea how long the heat was off for I had a hunch that might happen.... I should have trusted my instincts and started with a fresh bottle

I hate when that happens!!! Hope you had the spare ready, I usually don't and end up firing up the oven when it's 100 degrees out.
