look-out, cookout!

summa-time...and the livin' is easy....
i don't know about the height of cotton, or the state of airborne fish, but my rich daddy and my good-lookin' mama came over for dinner tonight, and we had ourselves what is known down south as a "cookout", but what we canadians like to call a good ol' fashioned bbq.
my ma and da are great people and really fabulous parents to me and my brother, so, every once in a while it's nice to show them my appreciation with some grilled meats.
mom wanted to go out for burgers, but i would have none of it!
instead, i boiled a rack of ribs in water with onion and peppercorns. after i removed it from said boiling water, i slathered with bbq sauce, smokey maple mustard, and minced garlic. ready to grill!
the slaw is: cabbage, carrot, green onion, red pepper, mayo, olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
the potater salad is: new potatoes, green beans, peas, carrots, corn (the frozen variety...it's so damn easy), fried bacon, green onion, mayo, white balsamic vinegar, chopped mint, salt and pepper. my favourite potato salad ingredient, pickle, was missing, but it tasted really good without.
the grilled tomato and portabello mushroom...no brainer.


contrary to skills-improvement methodology, and simple logic, the more photos i take of food, the worse i get at it.


father's day is approaching. get on it kids!
