Memorial Day Dinner May 27, 2019 ~ Never Forget



What better way to celebrate freedom than by a cookout? This weekend is the starting gun for the summer season, so Himself will act accordingly and grill some hot dogs. I have potato salad and a corn-tomato salad ready to go...along with a bag of sour cream and cheddar cheese potatoes if we feel like we really want to sin. I'll hide those if Himself insists on baked beans, too. Don't want a meal of carbs, carbs, carbs...and processed meat.

So, what's happening at your place for supper today?

I have a Tri Tip in the sousvide (the best way ever for cooking one) and it will be finished on the searing burner of the outdoor grill. I'll be grilling a basket of marinated veggies and some garlic toast.

Our flag is waving on the front porch in memory of those who gave so much.

We have baby back ribs in the smoker and baked beans in the toaster oven. We will also grill a couple ears of corn and I'll make a salad with avocado, cucumber and tomato.

Lazy day.

A scoop of potato salad from the deli, frozen chicken tenders cooked in the toaster oven, cucumber & onion salad and watermelon chunks washed down with unsweetened iced tea.

B/S chicken breasts in a bottled marinade (love that Stonewall Kitchen stuff!), potato salad in a Dijon vinaigrette dressing, garden salads.

First grill and dill of the summer - the half pickle closer to the rim of the plate is from this year's first batch. ~ We almost never use paper plates, but it seems more summery this way.

We had tortellini with a red bell pepper and red pepper pesto. I made a salad of Boston lettuce, one purple and one orange carrot, scallions, and garlic chives, with homemade vinaigrette.

There will be Swedish Visiting Cake for dessert.
