Menu Thread for Week Ending 8/1

Something with breast of chicken maybe? Nope, that’s next weekend.

Saturday – Hamburgers and potato salad. Sub spinach for the iceberg lettuce. Good stuff.


And on Sunday? Let there be pork spareribs, corn on the cob, potato salad, grilled pineapple and baked barbecue beans.


Impromptu BBQ

Back from the road trip, we had a hankering for BBQ beef tenderloin steaks. Good stuff with it too – fresh green beans and roasted savory potatoes.
