After spending a day getting ready, and a day cooking and partying, and with plenty of stuff in the frig, we decided it would be leftovers for Sunday dinner. We still had brisket and pulled pork from Wednesdays BBQ day, and chicken and a few ribs from Saturday, so guess what we had Sunday. We also had some slaw that somehow didn’t make it into the party buffet line.
I considered reheating everything on the grill in foil pouches, but I couldn’t get motivated so we just nuked it. It’s terrible to get old and need a day to rest up from a day of serious laying around at the lake.
Everything was still very good, but I think I’m ready to turn the meat into totally different dishes to finish it up – I’m BBQed out for a few days – I think it will be something that swims tomorrow.
Yesterday I said I’d post the fruit pizza recipe and here it is (see Sundays post for pics of it).
· 1 roll of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough - Cut dough into thin slices and press into pizza pan (we used ??” pan). Bake according to package directions and let cool.
· 8 oz package of cream cheese and ½ cup sugar - beat together and spread over cooled cookie dough.
· 3 bananas sliced and dipped in lemon juice – to prevent turning brown.
· 1 pint fresh strawberries
· 5 oz can of pineapple tidbits, drained or fresh pineapple
· 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced thin
· 1 can black sweet cherries (1 can blueberries may be used)
· 1 small bunch white seedless grapes
· 1 cup sugar
· 3 Tbsp flour
· 1 cup water
· 1 cup orange juice
Cook until thick and allow to cool. Pour over fruit a little while before serving time. Bev suggests you may want to use less glaze – maybe even half as much depending how sweet you like and how much natural fruit taste you want.
Bev’s dough was soft enough to press out in one piece without slicing and she used all fresh fruit and added some raspberries – add or delete fruits to suit your taste or what you have on hand.
I'm not sure why but I just had to finish off the day watching “Old Yeller” for the first time in probably 50 years – it’s still sad and I won't need to watch it again for another 50 years. It was a good ole movie but those were not the good ole days – all day spent working just to survive – not much time for laying around on the lake back then.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
