A memorable start to summer!!!

So here it is the big Memorial Day week-end, PBE is having there first ever food challenge which appropriately is dubbed ‘grill of my dreams’. We have company coming Saturday nite to spend a couple a days. I have a menu all prepared.

I wake up SaturdayMorning feeling like poop……….think I am having a relapse of my strep throat, I go for some fresh OJ that I had made the nite before for Sunday brunch mimosa’s, when I notice that there is ice cream dripping out of the freezer side of my 6 month old side by side.
It’s a holiday weekend here folks no one is gonna come out to look at this or repair this on a holiday weekend. But I call Sears 800# and explain my problem, frig side is semi-warm, freezer side is semi-cool. I get thru to someone who was quite nice by the way, and said, “I hope you don’t feel as bad as your voice sounds”. Well yeah I did but why should I get in to it with the customer service dude. Sorry mam the first appointment I can give you is Tuesday between 8 – 5. Hey what the heck of course I’ll take it I have no choice right.

I am lucky to have a old frig that I kept in the garage for occasion of not enough room in your in kitchen frig due to holidays, company and such. So husband and I moved what we could out of the broken down in to the old one in the garage. And about this time I’m feeling really crappy. Consult with husband and ask if we can cancel the get together with friend’s cause I am just not up to it.So Sunday husband and I had fresh squeezed OJ and he enjoyed a mimosa while I enjoyed time in bed with my over the counter meds. Seems that allergies have been just wicked in our area and I was the lucky recipient of what I thought was a fuzzy golf ball stuck in the back of my throat.
I did feel well enough later in the day to BBQ some burgers. I had seen somewhere that twice ground brisket makes a good BBQ’d burger and where ever I saw that they were correct if you haven’t tried it do some time. I had made some macaroni and green pea salad on Saturday. Oh and I had made a special sherbert dish that was in the dead freezer…….oh well!!!

Guess I should explain the reason for the pic of my fridge is that sweetnicks is having one of her very clever challenge’s “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours”!!! I don’t think this is what she had in mind, but here ya go, my fridge………..looks a lot cleaner than my purse that’s fer sure.

ETA ~ three things always in my fridge butter, la croix water, half & half never, ever okra!!!

BTW frig got fixed this a.m. and the repair guy said they just don’t make em the way they used to………………..stay tuna’d……………………..
