Monday, May 30 - Memorial Day (USA), What's on your table?

I smoked a big pork butt in our stovetop smoker on Saturday, so we'll have barbecue sandwiches. Also made a big batch of hamburger buns on Saturday in anticipation of the smoked butt. I'm just finishing up making potato salad and I made several dozen almond pizzelles for dessert. There'll be other incidental sides but, for just the two of us, we'll have penty.

What is everyone else having?

Hi Katie, I 'm grilling a couple of ribeyes on the Weber. I made a batch of potato salad to go with it.

I finally found that steak and mushroom recipe I was looking for in a booklet that came with my Food & Wine Wine Club order. It's called Grilled Rib Eyes with Mushrooms and Fish Sauce and it's also on the Food & Wine magazine web site. I will be using filets mignon instead of rib eyes because that is what I have, and they will be accompanied by a salad of some kind, au gratin potatoes, and the first corn on the cob of the year. One stand has them 5 for $1.99 and another has them 3 for $1.00, but the latter usually has smaller ears.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day,

Thank you to all our service men and women for all their sacrifices and keeping us safe.

Dinner tonight will be a grilled turkey london broil marinated in ginger, soy, garlic, and EVOO. On the side we'll have corn on the cob, and macaroni salad.

Enjoy the day

Conch fritters with spinach and artichoke dip appetizer.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
