What are you eating on Canada Day (July 1st)?

Okay, you may not be celebrating today, but you gotta eat!

We were supposed to be camping this weekend with family but it didn't work out and then we invited those that weren't going for dinner today but I had a full blown asthma attack last night so that isn't happening either!

DH said he is handling meals so I am interested to see what we are having!

What about you?

We are at MIL's for a BBQ today. She's making BBQ pork ribs, potato salad, baked sweet potato fries and chips and guacamole. I brought peach pie for dessert.

I am supposed to be going out for a BBQ tonight. Its raining pretty steadily at the moment. I suspect we will not be going. I have enough potato salad, killer coleslaw and other party leftovers to make a pretty fine meal. All I need to do is come up with a main dish. I'm thinking wild west salmon will work with all my extras.

Happy Canada Day Alix!
We have no rain at the moment, but no sun either

We had all your sun AND ours yesterday! It was so gorgeous! Now we're getting a lovely soaking and you can hear all the plants sigh with relief.

Happy Canada Day to you! (Hey, how long did it take you to stop calling it Dominion Day? Took me YEARS.)

Okay, then you can have some of our rain

Oh, I still sometimes slip on that one. A friend sent me this in an email today. Big memories!

It's hot here in the Nation's capital--so, tonight is:

Pea Pod Soup a la Romana

Only, I've switched it up a bit--I didn't have mint here (it is at the farm) so I used fennel and Italian parsley. And, made it into a cold soup by adding 1 c buttermilk after it cooled and the juice of 1/2 lemon, garnished with parsley and green onion tops. Oh, and lemon zest. I "wanded" it before I put it in the fridge, garnishes are ready. It is actually quite nice as a beverage--will serve it in a bowl inside of a bowl filled with ice.

Tossed salad with lettuce, green onions, baby beets, lovage, mushrooms, toasted pecans, EVOO and Champagne vinegar, S&P

Grilled pork chops (I don't do anything fancy--I like the taste of the meat, so just S&P)

Steamed Kale

Strawberry and pepper ice cream with white chips and salted peanuts.

Keith's Apple Cider on the Rocks.

Plans have been changing for days now. I had to play last night, I ended up helping a friend in his smoke shack yesterday because one of his his employees quit and the other one had the weekend off and couldn't be reached. He gave me a couple of rib eyes and lobster tails for helping him out, but I already had ribs which had been sitting in rub in the fridge for two days now(That's another story) So, to make a long story longer, I had to eat the tails today because I am going to a dinner tonight. I made lobster rolls for lunch. Tonight will be the ribs....

Another part of this story is still developing. I have some bad cold symptoms coming on and they seem to be getting worse. I may spend Canada Day on the couch watching Netflix...
