Supper Sunday, 2015 June 21

No supper thread yet?

We grilled a couple of Italian sausages and some European style smoked Wiener sausages. We had potato salad and some pickled vegis and beet salad out of jars with the sausages.

I found some Italian bread in the freezer and made more basil pesto. I made bruschetta with those, some chopped tomato from the farmers market and grated Parmesan on top. We also grilled some corn on the cob with bell pepper butter and peaches with butter, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Warmed up two pork chops leftover from last night and that was dinner.

We got takeout Mexican earlier, and have been picking at that.

We had a very nice Father's Day picnic in the park and made a more-or-less authentic Santa Maria style barbecue tonight for Father's Day. Tri tip steaks grilled over an open wood fire, with the same dry rub recipe used at the Hitching Post II restaurant in Buellton, California (if you've ever watched the movie "Sideways" you'll recognize the name). Served with salsa, a tossed salad, Caprese style tomatoes, and pinquito beans (Sorry - I didn't have any of those).

I say "more-or-less authentic" because in Santa Maria they primarily use California red oak in the barbecue pit, and all I had available was mesquite and pecan wood chunks. But I didn't hear anyone complain.

Great looking and sounding dinners tonight!

Steve, that beautiful meal looks darn close to authentic to me and it looks really beautiful! Did you buy the tri tips in Minn.?

We had grilled rib eye steaks, baked spuds, garlic toast and salad.

Hi Kayelle! Yes, I got the tri tips locally. We don't get them all the time, so when I see them, I try to buy a few and freeze them. Unfortunately, most of the stores around here use it to make ground sirloin. I don't think they know what they are missing out on.

My two daughters, SIL and grandson took me out to dinner this afternoon. We had a great time. However, I ate enough keep me full through dinner time so I just had a piece of lemon cake and a glass of milk for dessert.
