Missy, here. We have a running joke in our house about Mom always wanting to eat at "Shaaane's" (said with a very whiny voice). This teasing is due to a past experience where I may or may not have whined about wanting to go eat at Shane's Rib Shack. And where I may or may not have driven straight to Shane's even though the rest of the family chose another restaurant.
Heehee. Don't you love being the driver in control?? It's so easy to hijack the family!
On Sunday, Mother's Day, I had the honor of once again being in charge. Gotta love those twice a year occasions (including the birthday) where a poor mother gets her way. So this past Sunday, I got to choose where the family would take me for lunch after church. And guess where I chose...
No one was surprised. And I had a wonderful lunch of barbecue, mac & cheese and fried okra. We bought the family pack, which gave us a whole pound of pork barbecue. And believe it or not, that meant some leftovers.
So what do you do with leftover barbecue?
I made a salad on Monday!
Take your favorite lettuces (mine is romaine). Add whatever veggies you want. I only had carrots at the moment. Cucumbers and tomatoes are good. And actually chopped, raw sweet onions are good on this salad. Also, grated cheddar cheese--which I totally forgot about.
Add your leftover barbecue pork or beef or chicken. Top with ranch dressing and drizzle with barbecue sauce. YUM!
A nice reminder of my day at Shane's. :)
