4th of July at the Ostensjo's in! kitchen! a road trip.....

Linda O's roasted vegetable salad with her secret dressing.
You may use a balsamic/olive oil vinaigrette.
A pure delight!

The uber succulent pork ribs barbecue, a truly
finger licking delicious!
(for recipe - see previous posting of pork ribs)

A spread of roasted vegetables, roasted corn, chicken and
pork rib barbecue and the good reliable potato salad and chives.
What is the 4th of July without such
goodness to satisfy our palate!

The 4th of July celebration has become a tradition at the Ostenjos in Maine, where neighbors who lives along the same point come, bringing desserts and other dishes. One appetizer was a divinely delicious shrimp scampi of sort that the guests just devoured in no time. Too bad, I was too busy serving margaritas that I didn't have time to take a photo. However, we asked the neighbor for the recipe at the tail end of the party and by then I've given up keeping track of  how many margaritas I've consumed, but I still remember what she enumerated - sage, tons of garlic and olive oil. I will have to duplicate that dish and will post it here at a later date. The spread in the photo is the Ostensjos household contribution to the party, cases of wine, and the "cadillac margaritas" were flowing freely. Being the margarita bar tender - I was flowing along with it too. The only thing missing were the fireworks....alas! It's against the law in Maine to have fireworks. But, who needs them when you have the most wonderful and insteresting people living in the point for entertainment, great food and drinks! Happy 4th!.....and if you're wondering.....all the guests have a designated driver...just so you know.
