Finally, the sun came out, the covers came off Casa Benson’s outside furniture and we could eat outside. And eat we did. Our May meeting featured a good ‘ol BBQ consisting of Pizza Rolls (not usual BBQ fare, but the guys love them), BBQ’d USDA Prime Tri Tip, Beans, Mac Salad, Spring Mix Salad, Garlic Chibatta Rolls and three types of ice cream made by dessert chefs Ron S., Jim S. and Thom.
And speaking of Thom, he and Sous Chefs George and Gordon did the heavy lifting for Tuesday’s meal. Thanks guys. And the set up, take down and clean up crews did an exemplary job.
The kitchen goes dark for June, when the SitK gang puts on the annual branch BBQ. We fire it up again on July 17, and right now I think we’ll do a Summer Fiesta featuring foods from South of the Boarder. So stay tuned, and Ms Donna and I will see all of you at the BBQ on June 19.
