What is the best Labor Day meal you ever had?
Lamb Souvlaki where the lamb was griled over a campfire.
I have ultra-fond memories of neighborhood picnics — nice people, pretty weather, multiple grills, lots of (alas) probably pretty lousy hot dogs, potato salads, corn on the cob, jello, etc. Well, the corn on the cob probably really was excellent. Funny the foods we can be nostalgic about …
My favorite meals are when others labor to make it, no matter what day of the year it happens to be.
*sighs* — clearly I need to add “create an amazing Labor Day meal” to my bucket list!
But on the topic of good food, has anyone else noticed the recipes that the WSJ has been pubbing in its Weekend Journal? I’ve enjoyed some stunningly delicious dishes — this is the most recent one I’ve tried — one of their “Slow Food, Fast” features: Ricotta Gnudi With Tomatoes and Marjoram. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444375104577595182287269396.html
The recipe does call for a cup of flour (for the Gnudi). So not 100% Paleo 😉
This one is amazing, also. Seafood Escabeche. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204720204577130701320257394.html
Damn, I don’t remember a single one…I’ll have to make this Labor Day it then. Paella?
I tend to believe in the basic Labor Day stuff (like Paleo Man mentions) — BUT done right. Love really good baked beans and potato salad and tri tips or real hot dogs. But I already did tri tips and baked beans (and none of that opening up a can of Bush’s — I made them myself) and potato salad for dinner this week! I’m stumped as to what to make. I like that Lamb Souvlaki, sybaritica! And Thank you so much, Glynn for the two links. I love seafood escabeche — but don’t tend to believe that Labor Day is a good day for fresh fish. And Sir Barken, I love Paella, but again, not sure about getting the seafood for it on a holiday!
okay QL, you encouraged me! How about Le Grand Ailoli? Serves 12! http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444464304577537193734833440.html
Oops, includes fish, never mind 🙂
