For the past three Wednesdays in a row, Bee and I have been grilling for dinner. This, of course, now means Wednesday = BBQ Night. We’ve been preparing a lot of food, which is great for leftovers. Last night’s menu was jalapeno cornbread, coleslaw, salad with homemade basil dressing, grilled corn, grilled purple peppers, baked beans stewed on the grill, and BBQ tofu. Oh, and of course s’mores. It’s fun. We sit outside with a beer, putz around in the yard, and eat until we’re stuffed. I didn’t take photos last night, but here is last week’s BBQ:
Perhaps most significantly, we finally did cut and eat the lettuce we had grown in the yard, as well as a couple little yellow cherry tomatoes:
That alone wasn’t quite enough, so I added a spinach mix, carrots, and some nuts and cheese.
I made my go-to ginger soy dressing and it was wonderful.
I should note that we are not the only ones interested in eating from our garden. This one cracked me up, as devistated as I was to lose the tomato:
I call it Nightmare Before BBQ.
OK, so what else did we have?
We had Bee’s great little grilling setup.
And Bee. And grill.
And our very last summer lily, reaching toward the sunset.
Oh! And we had more food!
Grilled corn, from the farmers market.
Grilled new potatoes, also from the farmers market.
Beans, which I didn’t take a photo of because I was stuffing my face, and of course grilled tofu slathered with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce:
I kid you not, it tasted like chicken. Better.
And of course, no BBQ is complete without roasting marshmallows over the coals and making s’mores:
Next week we’re going to try grilled polenta, to shake things up a bit.
Cheers to Wednesday night BBQ!
