Starting the grill at 8pm will get you dinner at 10pm. Optimistically. Or, perhaps a little later if there are appetizers and piddling around in the kitchen.
This happens to me quite frequently, truth be told. Especially on the weekend, when Handsome and I want to party like rock stars. (Ha!)
And Saturday evening, I had this mad desire to invite over some friends for a really late dinner. Although I’m not sure anyone we know would be crazy enough to enjoy this kind of a meal with us.
What was on the grill, you ask?

Midnight Barbeque Menu #2: Baby Back Ribs & Rib-eye Steak. Potato Salad. Okra and Tomatoes. Beringer Merlot. For dessert, black plums and Madeira.
