  1. So the latest delicious dining experience was at Sean’s smokehouse in Saratoga Springs.

    We actually got to eat with the owner who made suggestions on what to order and made sure we had a delicious meal.

    Try the cornbread salad…it’s the weirdest thing ever…yet delicious. Anything you pick meat-wise is a good choice.

  2. On Monday, we had a family “luau” in honor of my son’s leaving for BYU Hawaii this week. I wanted “pulled pork” so I bought a pork roast and, after rubbing on garlic salt, salt and pepper generously, started slow cooking it. Unfortunately, this was at about 1:00 pm, and I needed 8 or 9 hours, not 3 or 4, to cook it properly. So, after a couple of hours, I took it out of the slow cooker and dumped it in the pressure cooker. After about 45 minutes, it was cooked perfectly, and shredded with a fork for delicious pulled pork!

    We also had veggie kabobs cooked on the gas grill outdoors. Nothing fancy, just mushrooms, onions, green and red peppers, and cherry tomatoes.

    Finally, I cut a pineapple in 8 wedges, top to bottom, with the rind on. I mixed 3 T melted butter, 1 T honey, and 1t lemon juice and mixed it with the pineapple in a ziploc bag, then grilled it. Yum!

  3. Every year, my neighbor hosts a “Ring of Fire” party, with a Johnny Cash theme. He cooks piles of ribs, roasts, and all the fixins’. Everyone brings side dishes and desserts. After dinner there are card games and a game show. As a teetotaler, I worry about what he puts in his homemade barbeque sauce, but I never ask!

  4. WE love to have a dutch oven chicken dinner and we set the table with mismatched silverware and pie tins for plates…everything decorated western or like a chuck wagon! we use bandannas for napkins and pint jars for glasses….turn the lights on dim and light a few candles….very rustic and very fun!
