Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Holiday Feasting

Happy Labor Day–are you working or playing, today?

For me, this long weekend has been a great opportunity to get quite a bit of drawing done for the cookbook but we’re also looking forward to cooking-out this evening, taking a slight departure from our usual menu.

Early holidays were feast days, so I suppose it’s no wonder we gravitate towards meals that are more expansive whether in size or ingredients.

Our menu for today?

Grilled Pork Chops
Macaroni Salad
Grilled Corn on the Cob

And for dessert we have Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream, homemade last night in my newest toy.

In some ways this is a departure from our usual menu–the pork chops are thick, not the usual thin loin chops we eat from time to time, pasta salad may be “bad” on some levels but the ratio of vegetables to pasta is better than most. And the ice cream, being homemade, means I had total control over the ingredients.

What’s on your menu, tonight?
