What are you cooking up over Labor Day weekend?

19 posts in this topic

End of summer, looks like nice weather, what are you going to be cooking up over the weekend?

Sat I'm doing some beef shish-ka bobs on the grill (need to get it marinating tonight!) and Monday I'm doing a turkey breast that I bought on sale last spring, dug it out to thaw this morning. Will probably do something in foil to go with it, either potatoes and onions or cabbage.

What are you cooking up?

Oh, havin a little party at the house on Sunday and gonna grill up some chicken, steaks, chops, corn, shrooms and onions. If it from the grill this weekend, I don't know if I really want it. Unless it comes from the cooler and it has "Lite" written all over it.

I am deep frying a turkey and my Dad is making a beer turkey on the grill on Monday. My sister is making the stuffing and others are pitching in with some other dishes.

Grilling steak butterflied and stuffed with mushrooms, onions, and some sort of high temp swiss cheese that doesn't melt off in the grilling process. Held together with toothpicks in a way that gives it a canoe shape.

Oh yeah, forget to mention the ice cold High Lifes and Bud Lights!

Still cheaper than going out for an average meal!!

I made fish tacos on Saturday, did a second smoke on some hocks Saturday night and used them to flavor a pot of beans I cooked today, then I made some herbed flat bread to have with them.

We kept it simple. Walleye, perch and marinated chicken with some "heart attack" potatoes (3 cheeses, bacon etc) Did a simple beer batter with some Goose Island 312 beer, tasty, and added Panko Bread crumbs on about half the fish. Very tasty. I would highly recommend Panko Bread crumbs, expensive but tasty.

Friday morning we headed to Memory Lane in Gilbert for breakfast, then spent the afternoon doing some Geocaching in the area and back to camp for beer butt chicken, dressing and pineapple upside down cake (made in the Dutch Oven). Saturday we had breakfast burrito's and spent the day fishing and visiting with friends. Supper time came and it was Hobos, green beans and apple cobbler (made in the DO) with ice cream. Sunday morning started with "sticky buns" (made in the DO) and 2 different kinds of egg bake. We spent the afternoon 4-wheeling, both in the mine country and the ORV park and got back just in time for beef and chicken Sish-Ka-Bobs and cheesy potaoes (from the DO). Monday for our final meal it was thick sliced french toast and thick sliced bacon from pigs that I raised. By 1:00 we were all packed and saying goodbyes and headed home. What a great weekend, super weather and friends!!

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
