Welcome to the new thread and Happy July 4th...we're looking forward to reading & sharing your meal ideas and other delicious tidbits. So, tell us...what's for dinner?
We've been fasting a little, eating salads, and I talked to an old friend yesterday who advocates a raw food diet, m-m, so I'm going to look into that, both for curiosity's sake and I just haven't been feeling so great lately. We'll see...
Today, though, we have a 4th of July blowout to attend. I don't know what's on the menu, but I'm bring baked from scratch beans, baking as I write. Happy 4th to all of you, eat well, be safe, hug your spouse or SO, kids and pets!
Company's coming for dinner and fireworks, and I spend a lot of dough at the farmer's market at Lake Merritt and need to use the produce! Tonight Rich is grilling teriyaki pork tenderloin kebabs w/ bell peppers, fresh pineapple and mushrooms, grape tomatoes. I'll be doing an Asian noodle stir-fry with ginger, garlic, soy, onions, mung beans, shredded nappa cabbage and celery, and making a pineapple and cilantro salsa; Good old plain steamed rice on the side for a double carbo-load. Y'all enjoy the holiday, be grateful for the freedoms we do have, and be safe!!
Tonight is some BBQ Beef Ribs, BBQ Potatoes that we ended up not making last night and some fresh green beans that I got from the Farmer's Market yesterday.
I smoked some jerk coated pork ribs on the grill this morning; they're steaming in a foil wrapped sauna of coconut milk, ginger, scallions & a little more of the seasoning now in the oven and will get the broil treatment for char that I like at the end. Also, bqued a split chicken that will get sauced with my "special" sauce which includes ancho chiles, brown sugar, oj, cider vinegar, etc.
For sides, grilled sweet potato salad with mandarin vinaigrette, sauteed green & yellow wax beans in a little bacon fat and a romaine salad with Vidalia onion vinaigrette. Last night, I made meringue cups that will be filled with fresh whipped cream and blackberries. Happy & safe 4th to all......
Happy 4th and God Bless the USA! Lunch was pork & chorizo sliders with smoked gouda, caramelized onions & chile mayo, coleslaw with a pineapple-lime dressing, and some leftover baked beans.
Tonight will be a slab of baby back ribs, which will be put in to steam with apple juice, & cider vinegar, before they go on the grill to smoke a little. A tri tip roast on the grill as well, with another batch of chile beans, a corn, tomato & avocado salad. Some cheddar corn bread in the c.i. pan.
Starting on the key lime raspberry tart, and a batch of rocky road brownies for dessert.
