London broil is $1.99/lb. this week so I see burgers in our future, lobster is $5.99/lb. so maybe lobster rolls one day too.  Fresh corn, tomatoes & peppers all work well together.  Going to the tractor pulls at the county fair saturday so will probably eat something there.  Nothing like fair food at the end of summer.

2 BBQ parties scheduled, one at my house, no idea what I'm going to grill yet. Guess I'll be watching this thread! :)

Steak steak steak!  Everyone loves a good steak.  And for a big party I like skirt steak, so cheap and easy.  Shrimp skewers are so easy and everyone loves them too.  Or, you could go Long Island clam bake!

Our labour day is on 1 May, so definitely not sure what I am going to eat by then :roll:

 

Hopefully I have time to do some beef ribs on the bbq this weekend

I wish! Steak is getting quite expensive over here and it may not be my choice right now... and boy how much do I LOOOOVE skirt steak but here it's expensive - $14.99 at the store I like to buy meat from (even their bone-in rib-eye steaks are less expensive than that). I know, most of you probably think it's crazy money, but this is L.A. I'm sure you can get cheap skirt steak at a tiny carniceria but I've found a source I trust, and I'd rather buy from them when I can.

 

But steak is good, you're right, for sure. So I'm thinking maybe a couple of tri-tip roasts. That should work! :)

The LA prices are outrageous, a friend lives in Hollywood steps from a Gelsons, he will send me pictures of meat in the case with crazy prices when the same cut and grade here is $15-20lb less.

I offered to bring a picnic to my sister in laws place on the river.  The sister and her husband,  they are great friends.  Now wife and sister have me up to 18 attending.  I have to go back to the store.

 

Ribs

Brats

hot dogs

Potato salad

slaw

caprese salad

beans

buns

bread

pecan pie and Ice cream

watermelon

 

It should be fun.  We have grandchildren to teach about watermelon fights.

Ended up finding Prime tri-tip for $7.49.lb at Costco, now that's reasonable, at least by L.A. standards. So tri-tips and bratwursts because kids just love sausages. Gotta have to think of a couple salads to accompany all that.
