Saturday's Supper 9/3

Hello everyone,

It's a beautiful day here and perfect for a cookout. Heading to my sister's house for a BBQ. The usual fare will be served. Burgers, hot dogs, potato & pasta salads, and lots of fixings.

Enjoy the Labor Day Weekend.

I hope so. SO informs me there's fresh salad makings so that's on the menu as well. I hope to have enough energy to make Alix's lemon bars too as I am out of desserts since soft baked cookies are off the list.

You could actually bake some soft cookies
But I agree, Alix's lemon bars are awesome....now I want some!

Finger foods for the Ducks vs. LSU game ... Mini pigs in a blanket, velvet and salsa dip, and these (Sweet Treats and More: Buffalo Wing Turkey Lettuce Wraps) which turned out wonderfully! I used a small head of butter lettuce to make them more appetizer size. Gotta love football season!

When I asked hubby as I was running out the door, he said a steak. I asked how prepared, "Oh, just one from the freezer." When I got to the store I decided to go the whole hog; a porterhouse, twice-baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and steamed asparagus. Haven't done that in so long that I don't remember how long to bake a potato! Thank heaven for Joy!

Until you can squeeze it and it's soft... or easily stick a toothpick in it
To tell you the truth, I can't even remember the last time I baked a potato. Especially if I'm going to be grilling a steak. In that case it gets nuked for 2-3 minutes and set on the grill about twenty minutes before the steak. I love the way the skin gets on a grilled whole potato. That would be perfect for twice baked.

I might go with wings tonight. I'm really undecided. And it's like 90F out there. I'm not one to complain about the weather (much), but man is it humid. I might have to grill watching through the storm door
