Beets are next! I almost feel like I'm cheating, because I can do them in my sleep. Both my grandmother, and mother, made pickled beets, so I've been making them since at least teenhood!
Oh, no, about Erin. I hope that it comes up negative, of course. The only positive, if it doesn't, is that you're not unfamiliar with it, and can make suggestions.
Also, as we've said, there are so many foods these days which target people who don't/can't eat gluten.
And, if anyone gets stuck, I'm always willing to help, if I can.
Still, I hope for a negative. of course.
I make a honey bbq'd chicken, too. I first made it at the lake, and it has pretty much replaced my old version! We love it. I'm sure that Josh's version will be terrific!
What are you thinking of having with it?
Let's see what I've made/served with it over the years....
Melon or mixed melon balls in 1/2 cantaloupe bowls,
Lemon-butter green beans,
Au gratin potatoes,
Potato wedges...cooked on the bbq or in the oven, Mashed potatoes,
Not all on the same day, of course, lol!
Also, and I was not thrilled with this at first, the leftovers make great homemade pizzas.
The 3rd day, or so, we made homemade pizza as per usual, but on top, with put pieces (cut up, bite sized, not with the bone.) of the chicken over the cheese. I was being prejudiced, and didn't think that it sounded good at the time...silly me. It was delicious! I was hooked after the first time! I put other items on top, with the chicken, usually.
So, after that, I cut some up whenever we had it, and put it in the freezer. Then, we could make pizza with it when we wanted to. Even in the dead of winter. It tastes good no matter what, but best when actually cooked on the grill, if you have an option.
Let us know what you make. Whatever it is, it's going to be a great birthday dinner!
