We'll celebrate a day late, on Sunday, as Child C and her hubby are gone to the lake Saturday. I have a pork loin I think I'm going to throw on the smoker. I've had success before with sous vide and a later smoke. I'll make cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans and corn (as the SIL likes neither potato salad nor slaw, the heathen). There'll be rolls, in the event anyone wants to make sandwiches with pork loin slices. Should be plenty of tomatoes for slicing, or for a tomato salad. I've done one with tomato, watermelon and fresh mozz that's pretty wonderful. I'm thinking dessert may be a blackberry cheesecake, as I have not made one in a good while, and I can make several smaller ones and freeze them without topping. A gracious plenty of beer and hard cider.

 

 

Are you getting garden 'maters already?   Super jealous if so.

Got one that's starting to get a little color on it. May be ripe by the weekend. He's the only one, though. Got to get some calcium and magnesium out there, though; having an issue with blossom end rot.

study its Anatomy carefully :

 

it slices optimally three different ways 

 

didn't study this w my first two.

I don't know yet what we will have.  I really want to make some type of fruit dessert but I don't know that I will get to a grocery store this week.  I could go maybe before my periodontist appt that I am truly petrified of and dreading.

Great point!

 

TT is hard to find around here too.  Costco doesn't carry it and butchers want $$$ for it.

 

Fortunately there is Wegmans and WF not too too far away

Santa Maria Tri-Tip is a thing around here and I am at a loss to understand why. I find tri-tip to be quite chewy and sometimes quite tough.I get tired just thinking of what it's like to chew that meat. Here it's either served with BBQ sauce or salsa. Neither sauce adds anything to it. 

That's why I much prefer a nice smoked brisket that's fall apart tender.

Oh my!  I'd take parking lot tri-tip in Morro Bay any day. Not unusually chewy. No sauces. And after a morning of kayaking , eating a 6 month RDA amount of  protein - 'so k.  But as always - we are fortunate to have choices..

Shop Rite has small lobsters on sale, considering buying a couple and having them steam them for me. I won't deal with cooking live bugs at home. I've made a cold lobster salad once before that had a simple lemon vinaigrette dressing if I decide to just crack and pick rather than eat immediately.

Or they could split them for you. At home broil with a touch of garlic butter and squeeze lemon at table. Small guys won't take but a few minutes.
