Continuing the long tradition of hosting BBQs on the summer holiday weekends, I hosted a group of 12 on Saturday.
Munchies included guacamole, goat cheese-pesto-sun dried tomato 'torta,' and crab dip (courtesy of Bob). And piles of chips, crackers, and bread to scoop it all up with.
Main course was grilled chicken on skewers and grilled shrimp on skewers. Potato salad, cole slaw (Larry), New England baked beans (Larry again), asparagus-lemon pasta salad, deviled eggs (Chris), and a few dipping sauces for the chicken and shrimp: Thai satay, basil pesto, and hot pepper jelly.
Desserts were strawberry-rhubarb cobbler, ginger-lemon cake (Bob's -- and the biggest hit of the day), ice cream (Steve), watermelon (Carmen), and pineapple cheesecake (Barbara).
Iced tea, mint iced tea, and a kick-ass sangria.

Memorial Weekend BBQ 2010
Dave loves to eat, and cook, and feed his family and friends. Thankfully Dave's family and friends like to eat what he cooks. Dave has achieved the Great American Dream -- suburban banality. He cooks from his modestly appointed kitchen in the leafy suburbs of Delaware County, Pennsylvania, a stone's throw from Philadelphia. Stop by for dinner. Or lunch. Or breakfast.
