Tomorrow, for my father's 75th, he gets to have some ribs, pulled pork and if he wants, some Beer can chicken I am making for the ladies coming for his suprise birthday. I need some quick and dirty help. My wife is at the State Gourd show, and took 3 blues so I am sol on her doing what she wanted to to because of the best of show entry. Its about him and not the food so what sides might be good? Roasted squashes and a cold salad are already done deals. Thoughts?

Yeah I know..on the other hand, a 30% fat requirement is refreshing. 10-20 on proteins. It turns out you cant absorb vitamins properly unless you eat enough fat. His doc looked me in the face and said 30 fat. It kinda set me sideways. So back to these healthier sides...

I made beef stew yesterday. I'd post a picture, but it looks like vomit, as all beef stew does. Tasted great though.

It's a Cantonese dish. Mei fun, a kind of skinny noodle, with bits of scallops, shrimp, squid and assorted vegetables. Kind of tastes like Singapore noodles in your typical take out but a little different.

I get the singapore noodles (IIRC) from the Asian place three doors down from Golf Evolution. :)

They're very similar. I love both. I've never made either though. It's a lot of chopping and lots of ingredients.  The hardest ingredient to get is probably the noodles, although the international food section at most supermarkets is much better these days. And if you look up the recipe, so many variations.

No kidding. I've looked up some recipes.

I think I'll just continue to get them from Mung.

I might be too late, but Atomic Buffalo Turds might be a good option (or for next year if I'm too late). More of an appetizer but I'd eat the hell out of them if I were on a restricted diet.

Bday cook is over. Spare ribs with dreamland rub, baby backs with Soul Seasoning, beer can chickens, regular sides like beans,coleslaw, potato salad and pasta salad for the crew. He had grilled veggie chunks of red onion, zuchini, red, yellow, orange peppers and was perfectly happy. He fell of the wagon to eat a persimmon cookie on lady brought him.

    • It rarely gets too cold to play around here and most courses, that I play, don't let you out if the temperature is below  40.  As far as rain goes...we don't get much light rain.  In other words:  we play when we can.
    • I played in the rain during a tournament early last year. It was OK but not something I look forward too. And I've played when the ground was frozen so hard I had to use an awl to make a hole to put the tee peg into. Frozen ground makes for long drives (it's like a big cart path) but it's very tough to land on the greens. Have to run up onto them. Again, not my preference. Lately, I played on a course where I had to use my ball rake in the lakes in the fairways as the fairways were mostly covered in water.  I think I must be getting old as I'm finding I really prefer better weather than any of those situations.
    • If you add wind in there, that would make a difference. 30’s, 20mph wind and rain, heck no! 40’s and ill do it. 
    • Oh golly I'm hot today!!  Kidding aside, when we set the course up for junior PGA kids we just put the tee boxes in the fairway. We also have several senior women who just tee off from the 200 or 150 disks. 
    • Integrity, sportsmanship and character. Obviously a pretty subjective and selectively applied criteria in the case of the Baseball Hall of Fame. There are definitely some pretty shady characters enshrined in Cooperstown. I think the commonality between the steroid-era guys and the gamblers (like our buddy that played down I-75) is that those guys embarrassed Major League Baseball.
