July 4, 2019 - Independence Day Dinner

Independence Day for us Yanks, anyway. We'll be having the traditional grilled burgers with daughter and SIL tomorrow. Today's dinner will be Laura Vitale's mojo chicken thighs on the charcoal Weber, lemony basmati rice, and a house salad.

Pasta salad (no mayo) is done and chilling. I have a sirloin steak and ground beef ready to go. No one wanted the buns so burgers on the plate, pasta salad and homemade pickles.

Daughter's aunt (my first wife's sister) and uncle have a home in open space outside a close by small town.. We are all going there for an assorted grill of chicken, pork, hot dogs and burgers.. A table of condiments, salads, sides and various desserts will be available too..

The younger set will use the pool and we all will enjoy a wide array of fireworks when the sun goes down.. Being the oldest, I get to sit and enjoy..

Hope the thunderstorms hold off..

Ross

If I remember correctly a birthday cake will be one of the desserts. Happy 80th, Ross.

Ross, I had a friend who was born on the 4th of July and when she was little she thought all the hoopla was for her birthday. Did you feel the same as a kid? It's a good day for a birthday it seems to me.


I have a tri tip in the sous vide, and it will be finished on Wilma the searing burner, as usual. Souschef prepared some cabbage for KFC coleslaw and we'll have some Texas garlic toast along with sliced home grown tomatoes.

DD and family came. We had drinks and appetizers then spent an hour or so at the pool. Then I grilled pork kebabs in hoisin and five spice powder. Potato and salad completed the meal. SO made brownie sundaes for us.
