Lest We Forget Memorial Day Monday

I couldn't find today's menu. Not all of us are in the US and enjoying a long weekend. Today was leftover Molasses brined ribs with a maple syrup-garlic BBQ sauce, coleslaw (posted in the coleslaw thread) and a scoop of the homemade chocolate ice cream topped with whipped cream, lime zest, and some cocoa powder.

Yum, CW! Thanks for the reminder.

Had been thinking lasagna, it's in the oven. Pork sausage and overwintered fresh basil!

We are having grilled skin on, bone in chicken done on the Weber. I am going to repurpose the rice pilaf from Saturday Into a cold rice salad with artichokes and we will have some corn on the cob to round out the meal. I'm thinking maybe rhubarb sauce over some pound cake (I think there is one in the freezer).

Oh shoot. I was gonna take a picture. I dug it up in Fall, potted it up, and have been plucking occasional leaves until now, when the rest of it is in the lasagna. It got pretty leggy, and I kept picking off the flowers, but it can be done! I did the same with a parsley plant.

We're having surf & turf I have a beautiful porterhouse steak that DH and I will share, topped with chimichurri sauce, and I'm making shrimp ceviche. We'll also grill some corn on the cob and baby carrots and parsnips from the garden. Ice cream for dessert.

Put my ribs in the slow cooker with Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce, mustard, honey & garlic. The usual suspects for sides - corn, potato & macaroni salad. Cut up watermelon & fresh fruit (strawberries). Peanut Butter cup ice cream in the freezer.

No special meal plans, I'm covered in dust cleaning up the office. I need to get at least what used to be my corner cleaned up and let the guitars have the space.

Rolled a chicken in OO and cracked peppered, spitted and bbq'd. Coleslaw with home made dressing. Just now dining with Sadie, my red heeler. She's not much for the slaw but is carrying her freight with the chicken.
