Simple Grilled Kale + Red Pepper Tuscan Pasta Salad.
Just to be clear, these are NOT hot dogs.
Nope, I am just not a hot dog person. They just sort of freak me out.
But these? Well, these are fun and delicious and so perfect for Memorial Day.
I told you I was in a Memorial Day food mood.
I just can’t help it, I always get so excited for Memorial Day. To me it just sets something off in my brain that says, “SUMMER”! Time to relax, hang in the sun and eat my weight in watermelon, corn and nectarines.
Unfortunately, summers now are obviously a little different from when I was in school. For one, I am now in Colorado, where summer in the mountains is a little cooler than I would prefer. Two, I am not a kid anymore so those carefree days of complete relaxation are far and few.
But, but, but – I do have fun with food and cooking, and all the things that NEED to be cooked and prepared during the summer. This means lots and lots of grilling and churning of ice cream. Nothing screams summer like a cookout, ice cream and maybe a few S’mores thrown in there as well. I mean, right?!?
Anyway, I made us some Korean Kogi BBQ ribs, stuffed them in some hot dog-like buns, loaded them with a sweet peach relish and added some awesome slaw.
Oh, and a little cheese, because very few meals are truly complete without it. In my book, cheese is a necessity.
So guess who is back in town and headed for surgery tomorrow?
Brendan! The brother who is right above me and about as weird and crazy as they come. He is having ACL surgery this afternoon. Just another typical day in the Gerard House. Surgery at 10, Malachi getting back from his 3:30 am job at UPS, Asher throwing-up in the kitchen (yep, another missed day of school), Red attempting to catch up on a whole years worth of schoolwork, Creighton heading out for the airport in his neck brace (off to meet friends for another attempt at a long weekend of fun – guess it’s just not registering how that last long weekend with friends worked out), and the cat chasing the mouse that will not leave the kitchen.
Basically it’s a freak show.
Oh, and you know what else?
Yesterday actually felt like spring. No really, it was total spring, early summer weather. I grilled all day long and the sun never went behind a cloud. it was a beautiful thing.
Kind of like these sammies or dogs or whatever we are calling them. If you do not enjoy beef, try swapping in chicken, but be sure to adjust the cooking times.
I know this is a little bit of an untraditional BBQ meal, but the Koreans really do know how to make a good BBQ sauce. Trust me on this on, it’s a must try. A must.
