M-Day pt2

Mother’s Day 06 is history but what a wonderful weekend it was. Nice to have the kids over (the dogs were ecstatic; they love the extra attention and handouts). I think my wife was pretty happy with the whole thing. Our son is back from Spain and hopefully the AF will let him alone for a while. He called and it was nice to hear how he, his wife, and the grandpuppy have been.

I got a little carried way with the Mother’s Day dinner, made some of my wife’s favorites but too many and too much. The kids benefit because they have food to take home with them, I have lunch for a couple days – nothing will got to waste.


We had salad with Calamata olives, walnuts, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and grape tomatoes. I made pork and beans – I cheat and take canned po’k & beans and doctor it up. In this case a can of chopped Jalapeños, a ¼ cup of the BBQ sauce from yesterday, and chopped up kielbasa that was left over from Saturday.

I made up a squash medley with chayote squash (Georgia O’Keefe would have liked that squash), zucchini, yellow squash, baby portobello, red onion, and green peppers. Doused the mixture with olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh oregano, then put it on the grill.


We had to have Bratwurst and Italian sausage with sautéed onions and green peppers and I made some Greek style pan fried potatoes.



Fortunately the kids took most of the stuff.

Now it is time to perform my last act on the fine Mother’s Day and tackle the dishes. Hope you all had a nice weekend as well!!

Keshi: Thanks

Xanadu: Well, it'll feed the kids and us for a couple days, but I do go overboard. If I tried to eat it all in one sitting I'd be in trouble. Come on out next time feel free to tuck in.

Wait, wait, wait!!! You cook AND do the dishes?!?!?!
Tell your wife she'd better appreciate you!
Honestly, my husband does TONS of dishes for me daily....but if he cooked me a meal I'd probably end up with a cracker & a glass of water!

Jin: I think I like to cook because I don't have to - sometimes when something is "your job" it isn't as fun. I really enjoy trying different recipes, especially from other countries.

Now baking generally ends in disaster.

T&B: I use lots of peppers. I'll post my rub recipe again soon.
