What are your Memorial Day weekend plans

We will probably keep tomorrow simple or take-out since we are cleaning prepping all day.

Sun. we are haveing my wife Aunts and Uncles from Maine and Mass. over. We have not seen them in years. I am throwing a mexican BBQ for dinner with Carnitas, Carne Asada,chicken , rice and beans. Watermelon margaritas to go with.

I just made a great potato and egg salad for lunch. I am also serving deli salumi and cheeses.

Mon I will invite some freinds over to help eat up any leftover food and maybe throw some oysters on the Barbie. BIL is having a Champagne brunch to see the family off in the morning.

I also bought one of those big blow up waterslides for the kids. I hope it gets warm enough to use it. We are actually replacing one that we had for about 7 years and finally tore. We got so many laughs and fun out of the last one!

Hope you all enjoy your weekend! What do you have going on!


Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

The pool is open! I hope. The heater may take awhile to kick in. More planting of seeds and stuff.

Perhaps some chops and pineapple on the grill.

We had our 3-day May long weekend last week (not that anyone asked). I posted some great looking appetizer recipes last week geared for Memorial Day. Enjoy! Hope y'all have fantastic weather--that's what we had here last weekend.

Sadly, Sal's Riverside didn't have any mudbugs available for this weekend. I was going to fly in a 40# sack.

To All My D.C. Colleagues,

Firstly, let me wish all my D.C. colleagues, a wonderful, fun filled, healthy and fulfilling Memorial Day Holiday.

Unfortunately, it is not a holiday on the Iberian Peninsula nor in Italia either ... It is just another 5 day laboral week for me ...

However, I have certainly enjoyed reading about all the goodies, especially those BBQ Grilled items ...

Kind regards,

We're going to a cookout this afternoon - a reunion of people my husband worked with early in his career. I'm taking my version of a Greek peasant salad and orange brownies. The salad consists of sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and bell peppers, dressed with evoo, red wine vinegar and ground black pepper, and topped with feta, oil-cured olives and capers.

Other than that, we're doing some home improvement to prepare for a family visit next month.
