Labor Day Menu
Tomorrow I am making
Pork Ribs,the big thick ones.
Collard greens with ham hocks,
baked beans (from scratch),
fresh tomato salad
flan for dessert.
I haven't started the flan yet. I think I am going to put orange in the sauce and put some passion fruit flavored mezacal in the flan with a touch of chocolate. Depends on how the family votes for flan flavors when I start it.
Oh and one cajun martini for me!
My son is still home and doesn't leave for college for two weeks. He loves southern food, esp greens.

Sounds good. I have to decide where I am going to eat tomorrow!
A cajun martini is my adaption of something I had at K Paul's 24 years ago. I pour in a capful of dry vermouth, run it around the inside of the glass and pour out whatever doesn't cling to the sides and add chilled vodka. I use Vodka now not gin, but either would work. Then I add a little of the juice from pepperocini's, think dirty martini. A very small dust over the top of the drink with a mix of cajun spices. Don't add too much. Spices are oily and won't disolve and just float on top, a VERY small dust. I often mix up Emeril's spice mix from his first cook book and leave a jar of it around so I use that. Garnish with a pickled okra.

Bland rice, corn dog, fatty bbq wings, and chicken salad sandwhich. Oh yeah...
