Summer Recipes


Learned these at last week's Movie Night. (It was Better Off Dead. We drank to "Beth" and "Two Dollars".)

CARRIE'S EXCELLENT MUSSELS
She swears it's easy and cheap, like me. (Actually, not true. Carrie and I have a new motto: "If only we were whores...")

Ingredients:
Mussels (1 lb per person, about $3 a pound)
3/4 butter stick
1 cup pre-sliced onion, red or white
1 clove garlic crushed
handfull of fresh parsely
3/4 bottle of white wine

Discard any open mussels. Pull off beards. Rinse in lukewarm water - NOT COLD!

Brown onions in a large pot (preferably with a clear lid so you can keep on eye on things later). Throw in wine. Put lid on. Steam for 5 minutes until they open. Discard any that didn't open (eating them can make you sick).

Serve with sliced french bread that you dip in the broth. Yum!

MARK'S BEST MARGARITA EVER
12 oz tequila
12 oz frozen Limeaid
12 oz 7-up
12 oz Corona beer

DON'T put in a blender (think BEER)

SACHA'S LOX
slab o' salmon
rock salt
Kettle One vodka
Dill and Rosemary

Place salmon in large casserole dish. Scrape rock salt on top. Pour vodka in. Add Dill and Rosemary to taste.

Set in fridge for 36 hours. Strain and serve!

Basic barbecue rub:

1/2 C dark brown sugar
1/4 C paprika
4T kosher salt
3T black pepper
2T onion powder
2T garlic powder
1-2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Good on ribs, chicken, steaks, whatever. You can add cumin, oregano, ground celery seed, basil, cinnamon, etc., as needed.

Have at it.
