Americans:

So, whatcha' doin' for memorial day? Anything creative?

I'll be doing a crawfish boil, because our nearby Chinese market had live crawfish. And grilled porcini. And corn & stuff.

You?

I may be 'away' but I was raised on Memorial Day in a military-based town! ;)

I did my dinner early yesterday, as Bonnie started at 7 PM, and I got 3 in. of rain! So almost everyone was back home by then, and stayed in today, unless, like me, they have a garden to tend to!

I made a mostly Asian meal, with the main dish being the BBQ chicken, Bangkok style. It is marinated in coconut milk, blended with garlic, cilantro, and yellow curry paste. I had 2 sauces for it, which I usually use for satay, and the usual sweet and spicy dipping sauce. I also used some of last year's butternut stash in a tamarind butternut curry. And I made a mushroom filling, originally for spring rolls, but I wrapped in lettuce leaves and rice paper, and made the sauce for the spring rolls - a galangal emulsion - which was also good on the chicken. And finally, I made another bok choy salad with that shallot dressing from a previous thread. I added some garlic chives and cilantro, and it went great with the Asian food.

We bought 3 sandwiches, 1 bag of chips and two bottles of water at the airport. For $58. A glorious memorial day meal!

I made pancakes. Not exactly summer holiday fare but they were yummy. If I'd only thought to add blueberries to them, the plate definitely would have qualified as patriotic, since I also pulled bacon out of the freezer and recrisped it in the oven. Oh well. Maybe I'll get it right on the 4th of July :D.

We grilled ribs, burgers and hotdogs and played slip and slide baseball (it involves sheets of plastic, kiddie pools as bases, dishsoap, lots of water and a kickball). It was a lot of fun but we are all remembering we are too old for stuff like that this morning. :)
