What's for Dinner Memorial Day Mon. May 25

We have been dog sitting a few days and will return said dog to owners this afternoon and stay for a gathering. Supposed to be served standard bbq fare; hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad...should be fun..

What are you having/fixing?

Our holiday weekend was last weekend so its a usual day here today. Its my kids awards night so I think we will have to eat and run tonight. I'll be trying to plan something quick when I get home from work.

What's for Dinner?

I had a fresh piece of Mahi-Mahi and a Carribbean flavor in my head last night.
1) Marinate Mahi in orange juice, lime juice, pineapple rum and ground peppercorn blend.
2) Grill Mahi to 145F internal.

3) Carribbean Cous-Cous-
Cous-Cous made with clam broth as the liquid with diced bananas, toasted coconut and chopped almond garnish.

Something different than Hot-Dogs and Hamburgers.

I've got chicken legs marinating in yogurt and Berbere spice. Will probably have Jasmine rice and an avocado/tomato salad.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I just decided we are having a buffet....

....of all of the above!

Being a Canuck, like Alix, today is just a normal day with DH working the afternoon shift. I am thinking of cold meats and salads for lunch (when we are all together) and Dad and I will probably just have sausage rolls for dinner.
