Lapinblanc saidWho's cooking today or this weekend ? Having people over or going some where for a BBQ/ / Picnic ? What are you making if you are cooking??
Got about 9 friends coming over around 4, a relatively small gathering but many of our friends are on vacation. I'll be grilling, but also inviting everyone to grill their own, since cooking to please others really intimidates me. If you want your steak done exactly semi-medium rare, with only 27% pink, then do it yourself!
We got a ton of boneless rib eyes, about USD $14 a pound but adequate for an outdoor grill in my view, plus some sausages and hot dogs, and told them if you want something else, bring it yourself. I think they'll like these steaks, though, beautifully marbled, and I make a special rub and sauce I offer if they like, or else I'll grill them plain.
We'll also have Rosemary potatoes (the Rosemary fresh from our garden, that I gotta chop shortly), corn on the cob, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, a big salad with lots of dressing choices, including my home-made Italian style (gotta throw that together, too), and pre-dinner snacks of all kinds. Another thing I have to make soon is the French onion dip for the chips, with chives from our garden.
But I work quick, really doesn't take long, and once I start I like to just keep going without pause, and have everything absolutely fresh as guests arrive. Plus hubby starts fussing if I spend too much time tying up "his" kitchen." LOL!
So that's how we're hoping our Fourth goes.
