I quickly made mi xao don chay (Vietnamese vegetarian crispy chow mein noodles) using the leftover black bean sauce from the steamed oysters with black bean and scallion sauce.
Cousin Q and his brother were already grilling steaks, oysters, and corn on the cob.
Cousin Q made the baby back ribs. Bottled barbecue sauce, slow-roasted for 5 hours until they practically fell off the bone.
Steaks with the basic steak seasoning marinade.
Oysters on the grill and dipped in salt, black pepper, and lime juice.
Boiled rock crabs. Still on sale for $1.89/lb.
Ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
And fireworks, of course. Purchased after 10 p.m. so they were discounted. :P
Happy Independence Day everyone! How did you celebrate?
1 year ago today, after two weeks' absence because I was entertaining Norwegian cousin, I began backdating/updating posts and asked everyone to guess where I've been?
