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.

We're gonna live it up big time (for us anyway) bought some 10oz lobster tails, 2lbs King crab legs, and a couple of t-bones, along with some home made chedder biscuits and a half dozen sweet corn, I tell ya, if that isn't livin I don't know what is! 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!!

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
