The Weekly Menu July 3-9 #glutenfree #menuplanning
Happy holiday weekend to all my friends in the U.S! I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. What kind of goodies do you have planned for dinner this week? Are you going to get the grill fired up?
I think I’m going to stick to working in the kitchen and oven-roasting pork. It seems strange that we haven’t tried it yet, but this will be my first attempt at pulled pork.
A few weeks ago we had the most delicious pulled pork at Freedmen’s BBQ and I’ve been craving it since. It had a nice cider vinegar presence, so I think I’m going to use a recipe from Tyler Florence and make his cider vinegar BBQ sauce. And then we’ll make a copy cat of the Salt Lick BBQ potato salad with Salt Lick BBQ sauce. And a copy cat of Freedmen’s grilled slaw, too.
I’m probably committing some type of BBQ no no, but these are all some of my favorite things. I want to eat them together. While we celebrate our Independence Day.
Also, I’m not going to add a shopping list this week, because this isn’t really a practical menu I’m putting out but there are links to recipes I will be using in case you want to try them out, too. Okay so here is our menu for the week:
