Cooking recommendations - Every year DH's family gets together for a big family reunion in the OBX. Each family takes a turn cooking a meal for everyone else (about 35 people). Anyone have any good ideas for the meal I need to make. 2 years ago I made taco salad and last year I made bbq pulled pork.
So it's pot luck? How about a huge batch of baked beans. Easy peasy. And super yummy.
Pulled pork is awesome.
When Dave has to make something for crowds he does macaroni & cheese, chili, pulled pork, spaghetti, or chicken wings.
Yeah, pulled pork pretty much rocks. I make it every once in a while but instead of the slow cooker I sear it first then braise in the oven for a couple hours. It's faster and so tender.
There's a zillion slow cooker recipes you can find online. I think something in a crock pot would be a good idea - then you don't have to be cooking for a long time - just chuck everything in that morning. Will you have access to a stove/electricity etc?
You could put the chili IN the baked potatoes if you scoop them out a bit.
Or do what Dave does and use those Tostitos scoops. Sometimes he puts a wee bit of shredded cheese in the bottom of each one and gives them a few minutes in the oven first, and then we use them to scoop our chili.
AFM.... Both of my kids have strep throat and DH is covered in hives from allergy testing. And the dealer didn't finish my car on time so I had to take the train down to pick up a loaner for the weekend. We're driving over the old Bay Bridge one last time before it closes!
David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
