Memorial Day Cooking Ideas

Summer fruits and veg

Summer fruits and veg

I am constantly reading food sites and blogs, and I have a new obsession with the NY Times Cooking section.  If you haven’t seen it, please do yourself the favor and go there.  I have been a beta user of some of their newer features, and I absolutely LOVE it.

I also was looking at the Epicurious website today and happened upon this article about best cookout dips.  Some remind me of my post here, about dressings that you can easily make and riff on to your hearts content.

So what are you all cooking this weekend?  I am thinking of doing some ribs on the grill, since the weather seems to be holding out for me.  Do any of you use lime or lemon when you go ribs?  What’s your cooking method?  Do you parboil, then grill, marinate or no? Drop your comments below!!

How many of you cook for just one person? Do these recipes work well for you?  I ask because I am working on developing a menu of food for one or two, to help out my father in law.  Simple food, quick and easy to prepare and easily frozen.

Give me your ideas, tell me what you do if you cook small.  Once I get a few together, I’ll start trying them and posting about the results.

Thanks, and happy Spring!
