Memorial Weekend Reunion

For Memorial Weekend, Betsy’s family is all coming to Colorado! We are going to spend the weekend hiking, exploring, and eating well.

It’s a pretty ideal way to spend a holiday weekend in my opinion. I’m going to be doing most of the cooking for the weekend which is just fine. I’m not making anything intense, but making some large family-style dishes that are always a hit.

No poll this week because I’ll be busy relaxing, but be sure to check back tomorrow. I’m posting a great pasta salad that is the perfect side dish for a Memorial Weekend feast.

Memorial Weekend Grillin’ Links!

Grill Check UpThis is a quick post I wrote with some checks you should make before you turn on your grill this weekend. Some of it safety-related, but all of it is important. (@ The Kitchn)

Dijon Roasted Rack of Lamb – This looks like a great party, but more importantly… look at that lamb. Oh that lamb. (@ Crepes of Wrath)

Julia Moskin’s Steak – I’ve ever tried this method of cooking a steak, but it looks like it works just fine. If you don’t have a grill and want some steak this weekend, this might just be your best bet. (@ Amateur Gourmet)

Strawberry Guacamole  – Guacamole is one of my absolute favorite appetizers and this one is a great spring twist on the classic. (@ Love and Olive Oil)

Chocolate Raspberry Brownies – Need some dessert this weekend? I imagine you would be hard-pressed to beat these beauties. (@ Oh Lady Cakes)

Have a great weekend everybody!
