Memorial Day Grillin' & Chillin'

Post by Hovannes » Sun May 30, 2021 12:57 pm

Burgers here.
What's on your grill?

Are there any toasts you make in memory of soldiers you knew, which you care to share?
Over the years I've reminded my kids of the supreme sacrifice made by those not too much older than they.
My kids are gone from the house. I wonder if they remember?
Or has it become merely a three day week end with an automobile race? :confused:

Nothing on the grill tonight. Graduation parties all day today so it's fajitas tonight. Probably grill up some burger and dogs tomorrow.

I have a long line of family that have served but none that I am aware of that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Italian sausages and burgers, as well as salmon and mahi mahi.

The fish was grilled on cedar planks. I have some scraps of cedar 1x?'s leftover from some projects so I plane them down to 1/4", soak for two hours and off to the races. This works really. really. well. It's great when they are on the coals - the whole yard smells like cedar. I love it. No other seasoning required on the fish. Oh, on the white fish I also put some fresh proscietto (sp?) - it is an Italian smoked pork that is frickin' fantastic when you can get the real stuff.

I'll do my best to honor this weekend, and especially tmrw. Flag is half mast. Burgers and hot dogs on the grill tonight. Boudin tmrw.

Brisket is on the pit. I’ve had lots of family serve but they’ve all come home again. My grandfather was a close call. His ship was blown up while he was on it.
