Our daughter Carly came home from Omaha for her daughters graduation and Memorial Day.
Her daughter Jasmine, Carly, and son Ethan.
Since she would be leaving Sunday morning, we had a cookout fot the kids and grandkids on Saturday.
I grilled some weenies for burnt weenie sammiches and Karen made a big skillet full of Manwich, put out some chips, watermelon and cantaloupe, and some 2 liter bottles of sodie pops.
I didn't take any pics of the cookout fare, but most of you have seen my weenie anyway. Don't wanna over do it!
It was just Karen and I on Sunday, so we picked up some nice hefty filet mignons and some stuffed crabs at Walmart that morning.
Mmmmmm! Medium rare filets, a couple of crabs, half a baked potato, and rolls. Don't get any better than that!
Just a nice quiet Sunday at home.
Karen's mom, two of her sisters, a nephew and grand niece came over around 4 for dinner.
Grilled pork loin
Boiled and fried new potatoes
Fresh tomatoe, cucumber, and onion medley tossed with Italian dressing
My world famous shrimp and macaroni salad
Fresh watermelon and cantaloupe tray
Sister's Parker House rolls
And, oh yeah, Key Lime pie!
Started with a 5lb pork loin, marinated overnight in Coca-Cola, garlic, and salt and pepper.
Browned him nicely on all sides, then moved it to the back of the grill and turned the rear burner off and the front to medium heat.
Made a little sauce to baste him with from 1/3 cup of apple juice and 1/3 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. Slathered him up and closed the lid. Went out about every 15 minutes, turned it, and rebasted.
After about and hour and fifteen minutes,
Everyone showed up on time (thankee Lord) and we sat the table.
Karen was busy while I was grillin'!
Boiled and fried new potatoes.
Cucumer, tomatoe and onion medley.
Shrimp macaroni salad, that I made yesterday.
And the headliner, grilled pork perfection!
It's time to eat!
All in all, a very nice three day weekend.
Hope everyone had a safe, happy, thankful and grateful weekend.
Happy Memorial Day to one and all!
