Memorial Weekend BBQ 2010

Continuing the long tradition of hosting BBQs on the summer holiday weekends, I hosted a group of 12 on Saturday.

Menu:

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.
