Harvest Monday ... Salad and Ribs!

My harvests have been more salad greens including a big batch for a salad to be served at our holiday BBQ on Saturday...

The Menu:
Chips and Salsa from "The Local Guy"
Renee's "Awesome Ahi Sashimi "with dipping sauce
Jo's  "Original Antipasto Skewers"
FitzGyver's "Famous Hot Crab Dip" (the recipe for this could be divulged ...think bribes ...think chocolate : )
Mary's "Bountiful Baked Beans"
Mom's "Make It On Memorial Day" Potato Salad
Deb's "Fresh From the Garden" Green Salad
Mary's "Oh So Garlicky Bread"
Deb's "Evil Ribs"
Dorothy's "Don't tell anyone there's zucchini in there" Chocolate Cake

My Jack Daniel's BBQ Sauce

Cook a bunch of chopped sweet onion in a lot of butter.  Add equal amounts Kraft Original BBQ Sauce and catsup.  Add a couple handfuls of brown sugar and a few blobs of honey.  Add a few (or more) glugs of JD ...cook over medium heat for a while ... this one isn't rocket science ... once you add the Jack Daniel's no one cares what else is in there ; )

I'm joining other bloggers over at Daphne's Dandelions as we share our weekly's fun to see what others are harvesting and what they are cooking up with it...check it out!



  1. Golly! You always get my lips smacking. Love this post!

  2. Beautiful lettuces and I love the garden trug they are in. Dinner looks delicious as always!

  3. Yum, everything sounds delish and your greens look wonderful!

  4. Pretty lettuce. And I so shouldn't be reading this before dinner. Now I'm hungry.

  5. That lettuce is beautiful! Those ribs look yummy....that's what we are having tonight!

  6. So awesome! I'd be loving that dinner lineup any day. Sounds like you had lots of fun.
