We're having husband's parents and two-thirds of the kids over for Father's Day today. (The youngest is at a horse show someplace in Central VA). We're doing a cookout for which I began preparing yesterday so I could enjoy myself today. The brisket is roasting, the chicken is marinating and will be grilled shortly, potato salad, sesame noodle salad, and tomato-cucumber salad are all refrigerated, and the lemon meringue pie is tempting me from the counter. I burned the edge of the meringue -- first time that's ever happened -- that'll be my piece.
Even though the temperature should top 95° today, we've got a lot of shade and will attempt to actually eat outside. We'll see. Maybe if I give everyone a tablespoon and direct them to dig, we can put in a pool! Anyone got a spare back-hoe?
Happy Father's Day!
