Next weekend is the official “GO AHEAD AND PLANT YOUR TOMATOES’ weekend in Southern Ontario. That means supposedly the chance of frost has passed. May 10th was the actual frost free date, but everyone is encouraged to be safe and wait until the long weekend, when … chances are they’ll be really drunk and won’t care if a big frost comes and wipes out all their tomatoes and geraniums. Yup.
So, being that next weekend is a big, outside, kick your shoes in the air and run through the grass kindda weekend, there’s gonna be BBQey, long weekend kindda meals. In the spring and summer it’s a lot easier to plan your meals, because you can just stand outside and sniff the air. Hmm. Chicken. That smells good. Then you put chicken blinders on your hens and slap a couple of capons on the BBQ.
There you have it. This week’s menu. That’s the plan anyway.
