Lots of Leftovers

We finally grilled some food today, and there are lots of leftovers. Here is what we had:

  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Chips
  • Potato Salad
  • Tomato/Cucumber/Red Onion/Feta Salad
  • Watermelon
  • Organic spicy sausages
  • Organic chicken garlic sausages
  • Marinated portobello mushrooms (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper)
  • Organic grilled chicken - marinated in "Andrea's Asian-inspired" marinade (soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, garlic, spicy mustard)
  • Organic grilled chicken - marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary & thyme (plus one more herb that's growing in my herb garden, but I have no idea what it is....)
  • Carrot cake (which I bought at Whole Foods and dropped on the way home, but it was still good, just not pretty...)
Questions: How was your weekend? Did you have a barbecue?

    I thought I did not like BBQ. I was wrong. Looking at that grilled spicy sausage is making me haaaangrrry!

  4. That's quite a feast you had today. Yum!!! Don't you just love it when there's a holiday. hehe...

  5. What a bounty of food! That looks just amazing.

    I just did BBQ Chicken sandwiches, baked fries & veggies. It was yum.

  6. Oh yum! That is some good eats!

    We went to a bbq yesterday with lots of good food, too!

  7. I love Andrea's Asian Inspired Marinade!! All of those ingredients together sound great.
    We did a barbecue on Sunday, but not yesterday! It was crappy outside yesterday and last night, so no one wanted to be outside much. On Sunday we made BBQ chicken, potato salad, marinated veggies on the grill, and angel food cake with strawberries. It was great.

  8. Oh yum! I can't wait until my husband comes home next week so we can have a big BBQ!

    My weekend went pretty good, visiting family. No grilling out for us, but I did get Crab Legs at the local Seafood Shack! (Which was a HUGE treat!)

    Looks delicious! Carrot cake is amazing, regardless of how it looks :D

    We don't celebrate Labor Day here so nothing special going on :(

  11. Those sausages look so tasty! With the exception of breakfast, we pretty much BBQ'd every meal over the weekend because we were at the beach. I think I may have to try the marinated portobello mushrooms! Yum!

  12. I love leftovers after a holiday. No cooking and lots of good food for a few days.

  13. WOW! I looooove leftovers...that looks like heaven! :)
