Mother's Day Meals - May 13th, 2012

Is anyone cooking today?

My wife's parents are coming over for dinner. We're having grilled pork chops, beet salad with walnuts & goat cheese, and oven fried fingerling potatoes. Beautiful day, so we'll probably eat out on the deck.

We're getting ready to head out to one of our daughter's house in the valley. There will be a bunch of mothers there. They're doing carne asada and hired a Spanish duo (guitarists/singer) for 3 hours for entertainment. One of our relatives is in the party rental business so they got everything set up in the back yard, including margarita and nacho machines....:)

Happy Mother's Day!

Steve, sounds like a wonderful meal.

Ma, enjoy your day - Happy Ma Day from me!

Andy, feel better soon. SO will appreciate the meal just as much whenever you serve it!

No Mother's Day at the Beiers - though my pups are being extra good today so maybe they know and that's there gift to me! . MIL is visiting her daughter and granddaughter so that will be a long distance call today and a meal later.

I think I am going to try my hand at a tuna loin I picked up. Not sure what I will do with it or sides, but I have 5 hours!

Ribs on the smoker, coleslaw, fried pickles, fried green beans, fried jalapeno slices and homemade snicker-doodles
It is ironic that my In-laws do a special restaurant Mothers day brunch every year that I always miss because I work every Sunday. This year I have today off and we aren't speaking to the in-laws

Mushroom Swiss burgers, potato wedges and potato salad... if I don't eat it all before dinner. I'll probably grill another onion, too.
