Labor Day Menu's
      #1044793 - 08/24/09 09:09 AM (98.109.126.174)

Just curious, what are your Labor Day Menu's like?

Ours...
Deb's Baked Beans, hot dogs (beef, in casings), burgers, KFC cole slaw (I love cole slaw on a good hot dog and KFC does make a really good cole slaw!), Deb's macaroni salad & pies for dessert...
along with some MaDouDou, beer and other libations...
having a few friends over, around a backyard fire, and eating outside on the picnic tables...
weekend, so far, promises to be cooler and low humidity...

Deb's Macaroni Salad (excellent and refreshing):
one box Ronzoni Smart Taste elbows (High Fiber!)
chopped red, yellow & green peppers
chopped onions
chopped broccoli flowerettes
mayo & sour cream (about 1/2 & 1/2)
S&P

Yes, my very easy recipe is awesome.
Ingredients:
I pkg. coleslaw mix
1/2 bottle Vidalia Onion Salad dressing
1 T. onion powder ( you could add some diced Vidalia instead )

Mix all together and let the flavors meld for a couple of hours. Voila!! Awesome coleslaw!! Sometimes I add a handful of shredded carrots, too. Anything works. It's great with Broccoli slaw mix, too! To the Broccoli slaw mix I add some raisins and diced apple. Yummy!!
Enjoy!

looks like we'll be having about the same amount of people...
Your menu is a lot more extensive than ours!

Our plans have changed a bit though, as we're doing it with next door neighbors around their pool...
inviting a few of our friends & the people in our neighborhood...
which is not that much as there are only five homes in our neighborhood... and two families will be away on vacation...

Tucker, the marinade sounds great...
but one question, do you think the alcohol in the marinade makes the pork drier?
Other than beer & wine, I have found that marinading meat in 80 proof alcohol tends to draw out the internal fat making it dry...
I hate dry meat...

We have not found the meat to be dry. We have used many marinades for pork. I came across this one this summer because I had gotten some dark rum in St Kitts. It instantly became a family favorite

Thank You!
We have a small pork tenderloin in the freezer, I think I'll try this one out!
I usually do a dry rub for these overnight... but yours sounds good!

A little early in the season but since Lil Seaside will be off playing with her buds, its just Ms Seaside and me. I am thinking about a strip sirloin recipe I picked up down in the Keys a few years ago. It does best in cool weather, but what the heck, the high Monday in Memphis is supposed to be 78 Degrees!!

Here goes:

1 pound NY Strip Steak
Margarita mix (W/O alcohol)
Marinate the steaks over night in a glass flat pan covered in the fridge.
Grill to taste

Top with a big spoon of chili, hotter the better,
Top that with cole slaw
Top that with some grated cheese.

That'll keep your cholesterol up!!!

Some home made Key Lime pie, a Rita or two and a few hours in the pool and hot tub.

Nap time after that.

Carol, I have to agree with you. To me, anything but salt and pepper on a good steak is too much.

I also agree... I wouldn't do that to a burger, let alone a steak...

I saw a program on Food Network once where they said to mix ground meat with chopped ice. Apparantly, that's what makes them juicy! I've never tried it but was curious.
Also, something I do try and have for years..I always put a small pat of butter between two small patties and moosh them together. I do this to turkey burgers, too. It's yummy! Also put cheese in the middle, too. Makes and inside cheeseburger without melting the cheese all over the grill.
Can't believe it's Labor Day already!!

Come on, Carol, doesn't the CHEESE do it for you?? One of our local restaurants makes a yummy strip steak topped with seasoned sauteed peppers and onions, and monterey jack cheese on top of that. Another place does one with pesto, roasted red peppers, and mushrooms on top. Kinda yummy. I do usually like steaks best with just salt and pepper.

We had the pork in the rum marinade a couple nights ago for the family. It was a hit! I nuked the leftover marinade in the microwave and used it to brush on the meat a few times. Very moist!

The slushies will wait for next summer (unless we have to do a beach day in January in front of the woodstove). Last cookout of the summer is tomorrow and I'm doing peach sangria.

It does sound weird, but I like all the components, so I would try it, once anyways.

Our get-together is at my son's house, annual birthday party for my grandpuppy. He does the best pulled pork, the BEST! I am going to try the Vidalia onion salad dressing in the coleslaw ~ thanks Contessa!

I posted this a couple of months ago......

Peachy White Wine Sangria

Ingredients:
1 Bottle of white wine (Riesling, Chablis, Gewurztraminer, Rioja, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc)
1/2 cup Peach Schnapps
2 sliced peaches (I use frozen peach slices)
1 sliced orange
1/2 mango peeled and sliced (I use the jarred, sometimes)
1/2 liter of ginger ale ( I use diet )

Preparation:
Pour wine and Schnapps in the pitcher and add sliced peach, orange, and mango. Chill mixture for at least one hour. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving.
If you'd like to serve your Sangria right away, use chilled white wine and ginger ale and serve over lots of ice.
I also use Prosecco. Add other fruit, too ie: strawberries/white grapes...it's all good!
It's a very refreshing drink.

ice, that is interesting. i've heard of the butter in the middle, but haven't tried it yet, although with butter could it really taste bad? i mince onion and mix it with the meat; makes for a very juicy burger.

made a 1/2 recipe or this Pork Marinade (only 4 pork chops).
Very good. I thickened the left over marinade and added some chicken broth and a little more orange juice; cooked it down and served it over chops.

Peach Sangria - yum, still have some leftovers, it gets even better the next day. Come on over, Mike!

2 ripe peaches, blanched and peeled, cut in small chunks
1/2 cup vanilla vodka (or plain with a tad of vanilla added)
1/2 cup peach schnapps
1 can Goya peach nectar
2 bottles white wine (any white wine you like)

Marinate the peaches in the booze overnight or at the last minute, in bottom of a nice clear pitcher. Add white wine and peach nectar. Serve over ice if you like it really cold. Then, if you're outdoors, and with casual type friends, when your glass is almost empty, you can have fun spitting out the ice cubes to get to the peach chunks. Kinda like a grown-up version of seeing who can spit watermelon seeds the farthest.

Enjoy!!

The red sangrias are usually "fortified" with brandy, so makes sense to throw in vodka for a white sangria.

We changed all our plans and spent the weekend on Eastern LI...
Perfect weather (70's with low humidity and a nice breeze off the water)! Great food! and good friends...
only downside... the traffic $ucked getting from NJ to LI on Friday afternoon...
The normally 3 hour trip took 5 hours!
Left Monday at noon to avoid another 5 hour trip to NJ... no traffic at all!
(except a little on the LIE by the Worlds Fair Grounds because of the U.S. Open traffic)...
A 2 3/4 hour trip door to door! That's about the best you can do (it's a 140 mile trip, as the crow flies, thru Manhattan)...

We made the Coconut Curry Chicken for our family & friends, and it was a huge hit!

TOO full! The coleslaw with the Vidalia onion salad dressing was a huge hit, it went great with (or on) the pulled pork sandwiches. Thanks again, Contessa!

Yes, would like to hear how everyone's menus worked out!! On LD, we had beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon, a hot potato salad with blue cheese and bacon -- a theme perhaps?? , and a green salad, with a nice Cab. Good meal!

Our menu worked out great, although the weather was iffy. We all had a fabulous time eating and visiting. I made some bubble gum ice cream for the kids at the last minute- it was a hit for young and old. The Jack Daniels baked beans were not as good as I'd hoped-maybe I did something wrong.

Long story short, we ended up with six for the Labor Day. I did make the marinated strip steak with chili, slaw and cheese. It must be a local thing, but we all enjoyed it. (sorry Carol)

We did have a bit of good luck. Some friends brought back some fresh Gulf shrimp and a few red fish on Saturday. I made some gumbo on Sunday that turned out pretty good, if I may say so myself.
