Eating all day…that’s what usually happens when my family does barbeque. It’s my dad’s birthday tomorrow so we celebrated today. This is what we did today.
Jalapeno Burgers, with finely minced onions, Worcesterchire sauce, garlic powder, even more finely minced jalapeno peppers, salt, and plenty of freshly ground pepper.
More Jalapenos! Grilled until the skin blackens and blisters. Then the seeds and removed and it’s used to top burgers, or eating out of hand. My mom guzzled water after one bite.
Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken. I made a rub with chili powder, ground cumin, ground pepper, garlic powder, ground Sichuan peppercorns, salt, sugar, a dash of soy sauce, and olive oil. The chicken was allowed to sit overnight.
Chicken. Potato Salad. Garden salad with the sweetest cherry tomatoes.
Way better than any store-bought potato salad. I used chopped pickles and a generous splash of pickle juice along with mayo, chopped onions, mustard, ground pepper, and salt. No eggs so the salad has a better chance sitting outside the cooler.
Grilled peaches with cinnamon. Grilling caramelizes the sugars in the fruit and intensifies the flavour. Plus, like my brother says, “it’s super juicy!”
Here’s my dad’s birthday cake. For more cake details, go to Buttery Bakery!
We also did a number on Italian sausages, steak, hot dogs, and more fruit, but I didn’t record with pictures. I can tell you that they were good though!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
