National BBQ Day Dinner - 5/16/2018

Purists will cringe, but I'll slop a little BBQ sauce on boneless chicken breast strips, toss them on the grill and call it barbeque (flame suit is on!). We'll finish the last of the black bean and corn salad, with a garden salad on the side.

What's that saying Kayelle likes, tenspeed? "My Kitchen, My Rules"? I say you can apply the same reasoning to your northern grill.

No BBQ of any kind here. It's cool, with the promise of rain later today. My plan was to use the "other two" chicken breasts from the four-pack I bought, simmer them with aromatics, and make a simple pot of soup to pile noodles into. However, the gloom of the day and a restless night make the leftovers look rather appealing. I'll let you know what we end up with later...

Just got back from dropping SO off at the airport for a week in FL with her kids, grandkids and great grandkid. I have a list of meals she won't eat planned for this time. Tonight will be either alfredo or carbonara depending on my mood.

See, these "days" rarely work for me because I don't know about them before I plan our meals We had smoked ribs Sunday and Monday and smoked pulled beef Tuesday. Taking a day off.

I just made tzatziki and next I'll make baked seasoned pita chips. I have some bone-in skin-on chicken breasts, so I'll season those up and throw them on the grill. We'll also have Greek salads.

Oh and tenspeed - as long as you spell it with a Q, you're good

Ok, I'll bite, toss my hat in the ring and fire up the grill. Catalina French dressing sauce brushed on bone in chix breasts, The mixture I usually use includes apricot jam or orange marmalade. This seems too sweet by itself for me today,so I added some Tiger sauce and grated ginger in the dressing. Minced onion instead of onion soup mix which makes my ankles swell just thinking about that.

Green bean salad, like three bean salad, only 1 beans. Also a little onion mixed in with the salad too. Ice tea and Figgy newtons from the store for dessert.

I ended up making the carbonara. I used the Serious Eats recipe calling for a pound of pasta but cut it down to Lb. It came together perfectly but I think I'll use more cheese next time.

We finished off yesterday's avocado egg salad, with fried potatoes and asparagus sauteed with garlic and lamb's quarters.
