I’m a bit late posting this because the return to school and sports has definitely been a whirl wind. For starters, the high temps are KILLING ME. Or I should say, are killing my kids and I have to stand back and watch. Their school doesn’t have A/C and my son has football practice three days a week and, well, lets just say we don’t have time to go to the pool to cool off.
So we’re trying to come up with easy dinners that don’t include ordering pizza (though that is definitely a fine option for big times of transition.)
Luckily, I made a lot of food for our big Labor Day party, and I hoped there would be leftovers for the week. Even though we had a big turnout, everyone devoured the eight racks of ribs I made so we had extra cheeseburgers and pulled pork FTW.
These Oven-To-Grill Ribs and this Kale and Brussel Sprout Salad were the hit of the party. I also made a beautiful blackberry and goat cheese salad similar to this one but with red wine vinegar instead of balsamic (either would be great) and failed to take any pictures. But it needs to be blogged about because it is so pretty and good.
Left over cheeseburgers from our BBQ party.
I make mine with 1 tsp. salt, 1 T. Worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 minced onions (we like a lot you can cut it down to 2 T.) per one pound of ground beef. I made a ton for the party just like this and they were so good!
Leftover pulled pork from our party that I froze, and I used the homemade BBQ sauce from the ribs recipe which was ridiculously good. I love this 3 ingredient crock pot recipe, so easy and delicious. I need to have coleslaw with this and I was so glad I made extra dressing and left it in the fridge to make some fresh. I make my dressing by winging it and tasting it often, but it is similar to this one.
This tired momma is ordering pizza. My condolences if you don’t have a pizza delivery service nearby.
We have another party to go to but I think I will be bringing these Tomato with Whipped Feta or
Peach, Prosciutto and Ricotta crostini.
Hope your September is off to a great start!
Happy Eating, xoxo Katie
