THE LAST WEEKEND IN JULY

Happy Tuesday Morning. I should get you caught up on the goings on at the Drunken Chef’s house. There was a lot going on here this weekend. The hard part is trying to remember it. Maybe I need one of those memory supplements. What are they called? I think they need a more memorable commercial.

Friday, I remember working and getting out of work. Let me look at my phone, maybe the pictures will help me remember. Ahhh yes, Friday was clams on the grill and shrimp. Some of you may have seen the pictures on INSTAGRAM. I also made Old Fashioned Lemonade.

The clams were easy peasy. I watched as someone else cooked the clams standing up. I have always cooked them laying down. It was cool to watch them open this way (see below). She also made drawn butter with garlic to put on top. I made a batch of Ma’s Cocktail Sauce.

Grilled Shrimp is always fast and easy unless you have to peel, devein, and clean the shrimp. Someone had already done the cleaning, marinating, and skewering for me so all I had to do was grill them.

Then, I grilled a top round London broil (see below). I have been spoiled in the past by the exquisite London broil I was buying at Meat Farms and my local King Kullen grocery stores pre-pandemic. Now the meat seems to be tougher. I need to find a new store for my London broil purchases since Meat farms was sold to Lidl and King Kullen closed most of it stores. This was also an easy to grill protein.

Saturday we had company. More grilling as it was a nice day. I started with BBQ spareribs (Grilled). Then Jennifer asked if I would make dessert. So, I made chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.

Then, I made cheeseburger sliders and buffalo wings on the grill. That’s a recipe I will post later this week. Maybe tomorrow, as I am not cooking tonight.

Until tomorrow, be well, be happy, and have a nice day.
