Happy Memorial Day! It’s supposed to rain today but yesterday the sun was out in full blast for a great barbeque.
We spent the day with my best friend from high school and her family and friends. They’re all big readers of the blog and wondered why they hadn’t been on yet, so here you go! Thanks for the delicious food, John!
After a fun game of frisbee throwing and feeding the pet ducks, it was time to make the appetizers. We were having sushi with all the fixings and everyone pitched in in the kitchen.
Eury worked on the cucumber.
And I flipped and cut the eggs. The secret to these sushi-filling eggs was to scramble in salt and sugar before they were cooked—never would have guessed that!
When we were all done, there was seasoned rice, cucumber, eggs, tuna, salmon, and avocado. This was a fun way for each person to try something new, especially since most of us hadn’t made our own sushi before.
Koko loved all of the attention she got almost as much as she loved the dropped sushi and beers.
And then there was dinner—I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures of dinner. I think it was because I was too busy filling my plate. There was swordfish, steak, chicken, shrimp, and pork all grilled by John, a salad with greens from their garden, bean salad, and a root vegetable medley Eury and I prepped and roasted. It was all so good that no one at the kids table(didn’t you know you need to be over 25 to avoid the kids’ table? Sorry, Christian)remembered to save room for the ice cream we had just gone out and bought.
Cheesecake, ice cream, and fruit(I just had fruit)—perfect way to end a hot Memorial Day party.
What’s your favorite BBQ food/dessert? I’d love ideas for more Summer recipes.
