What's for Supper - July 1st Edition

So tonight when I got home from work I found my recently-college graduated son and his oh-so-sweet girlfriend sitting on my couch ... hungry.  Hungry for some of momma's good home cooking. I was happy to oblige!   Thank goodness I already had several of the key players in place:  a Boston butt that we had cooked on the Big Green Egg last week; some yummy potato salad; a sweet watermelon; and some fresh green beans from the garden.  You gotta admit that's a pretty good start for a good meal but I wanted to add a few things.  First, I wanted to make yesterday's recipe for Ranch Barbeque Sauce.   Below you'll see the ingredients for this great barbeque sauce and I'm sure you'll notice that I may or may not have added a few more ingredients than the recipe called for.  I'm the world's worst about not really sticking to a recipe exactly.  I always have to add or subtract something or other.  For this recipe, I added a few shakes of onion powder and minced garlic to this already great recipe. 

The proof is in the pudding ... er, bowl. 


Next up ... Summer Garden Pie. I've been hungry for this pie for about three weeks now and tonight was the night.  It combines vidalias, tomatoes, cheeses and a bunch of other good stuff all in a pie shell.  It was so very good.

So here is the finished product.  

We finished all of this off with homemade Blackberry (from the garden) Cobbler and Vanilla Ice Cream.  Sorry but I was too carried away eating to take a photo.   This might have just been the best meal I've had in July!
