Me= MEat free MEmorial day and a quote or two

Happy Memorial Day - now there is an ironic reason for a holiday and celebration.  Regardless the first meatless recipe comes from a daily newsletter whose title may offend [so I'll spare you the title] but has great health tips tips and information.  The second is from all recipes (dot) com.

#1 Drunk BBQ Corn
10 ears fresh corn with husks
1 quart beer (non-alcoholic or wheat-free, if desired)
1 (7 pound) bag of ice cubes
Directions: Place whole ears of corn in an ice chest. Pour the beer over top. Dump the ice out over the ears of corn. Place the lid on the cooler, and let sit for 8 hours, or overnight. Preheat smoker to 250° F. Place the corn in the smoker and close the lid. Cook for 1 to 2 hours, turning every 20 minutes or so. Kernels should give easily under pressure when done. To eat, just peel back the husks and dig in.

#2 Double Tomato Bruschetta

  5. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
