Melted electronics smell bad...
My laptop adpater inexplicably fried itself last week, so all the pictures that I have that I want to post are sitting on my laptop, which is about as functional as a brick. I ordered a new adapter on ebay, so when it gets here, there will be pictures galore!
Until then, here's a bunch of recipes I keep meaning to link to:
Labor day end-of-summer menu:
Start out with some mint juleps (recipe to follow tomorrow - I've got to get it from my dad again...)
Grilled, Marinated Flank Steak
for the creole seasoning, use Emeril's Essence
(ew.) but replace the 1 Tablespoon of Cayenne with only 1 teaspoon, otherwise it just tastes like Cayenne.
with spicy yogurt sauce -- great technique for grilling eggplant, in general
Serve with corn-on-the-cob and potato salad
Finish off with a yummy berry pie
Some excellent baked goods you can try at home:
Awesome ginger cookies
Crispy Almond Biscotti
White-Chocolate Lime "Blondies"
- Don't worry about all the craziness in this recipe with the foil, and cutting them in half, and filling them with strawberries or whatever -- I just make the blondies in an 8 x 8 pan and eat them.
