We're having ribs, a salad, and watermelon for dessert.
My family is getting ready to move too, so we're keeping it pretty simple, trying to use up what's in the freezer.
Also, no grilling for us, this far south, it's already too hot out there. Ours will be pulled out of the fridge and/or briefly microwaved. Fun in the sun is all very well, but this paleo prefers to hide in her air conditioned cave when the weather heats up.
I have some lamb shanks sitting in the freezer, so I think those will get cooked up this weekend. Hopefully my chutneys will be done by then and we can have some fruit to go with them. And then maybe a side of grilled asparagus and butter. Not sure yet, so I'm curious to see what else gets posted!
Normally we would do something like grilled burgers on a portabella mushroom and sweet potato fries, but since we'll be moving soon, I want to make the most use of what we have in the freezer.

Yesterday, July 1 was Canada Day for us Canucks celebrating 143 years as a country. Lots of parades, fireworks, cold drinks especially Canadian beer and of course food. This year was special as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are in Canada at the moment so there was extra pomp and celebration wherever they visited. We celebrated with a meal of BBQ salmon steak, asparagus and dessert of freshly picked strawberries with real whipped cream.
For all of you state side have a safe and fun July 4...MJ

This weekend is a big cookout weekend in America. Is it the same in Canada?
What are your cookout plans? Are you cooking out? Going out? What will you bring to the table, literally?
I made some cowboy burgers and bacon cheese burgers (bacon and cheese mixed right into the patty) for hamburger steaks. (Though I'm sure mu family will insist on buns).
I got sweet potato fries and head of napa cabbage for a slaw. Anyone have a good slaw recipe? I've never made it. In fact I hate cabbage - this is a big step.
Now I really want to make some macaroni salad, a favorite of childhood. That's not very paleo. I will use rice pasta if I do it, cause I'm intolerant to wheat. Does that make it better? No. I suppose not.
