Casual Sunday Afternoon - What shall i throw on the grill??
So I have decided to have a few people over Sunday afternoon ...Pool side then throw a few things on the grill....below is what I have planned, the questions is.... keeping it somewhat casual, what would you do? Yes, I am looking for suggestions ;)
BBQ wings - that have been marinated overnight in my Southern Comfort BBQ sauce
Grilled potato salad
Homemade Ice Cream sandwiches
All sounds great to me - only thing I'd do different is make Hatch green chile burgers with cheese and trimmings, because I prefer those chiles to the heavy smoke in chipotle. Also, dear, you don't want to feed the kids the wings in the same sauce ...even if you cook it, you won't cook out the booze, and maybe you could just do some plain bbq wings for them, or teriyaki, which kids love pretty universally. I'd have something for folks to munch too; a crudite or two would be nice, or small mezze spread. Love the dessert sandwiches; they could assemble those themselves....and a super dessert is grilled bananas Foster tooo...
<< in my Southern Comfort BBQ sauce>>
Care to share your recipe? I recently threw a generous shot of Maker's Mark in the root beer BBQ sauce I make from Bon Appétit. Wasn't sure if it was lost in the mix of things, but liquored up BBQ sauce is definitely up this kat's alley!
This thread is making me hungry!
I would try some plit sardines, marinated in olive oil, hot chile, and garlic, skewered and grilled, then lightly dusted with breadcrumbs and lemon.
Or maybe some shrimp on rosemary skewers? Sliced grilled polenta?
How about a couple split eggplants grilled with portabello mushrooms?
I am having a few people over this weekend, and have begun to think of the menu. so far, i am making grilled turkey tips, grilled asparagus and grilled corn. For sides, some potato salad, tomato salad and maybe a green salad. Love the idea of homemade ice cream sandwiches- there will be three kids at the meal, and they would love that idea.
