Great Weekend

I spent the weekend at RBD's house in the Catskills with a bunch of cool people.

I went down Friday with Song and The Cuteness. I thought we were coming back on Sunday but we stayed till today. I think I was the last person to leave.

I spent a lot of the weekend sleeping. But I still spent some time hanging out and talking to friends, old and new.

I made Roasted eggplant and zucchini, and my own recipe for Spiedies. People really liked my Spiedies. I used pork shoulder. My marinade recipe is in my Family Cookbook
Spiedie Marinade
Ingredients

1 c. vinegar (you can substitute 1/2 cup
red wine for 1/2 cup of the vinegar)
1/2 c. oil
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2-4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 lg. onion, sliced
1 Tbsp. parsley
1 Tbsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. rosemary, crushed
1 tsp. mint
1 tsp. thyme
1 bay leaf, crumbled
1/4 tsp. red pepper (optional)
2–3 lb cubed meat (pork, chicken, lamb,
goat, deer, or beef)
1 loaf sliced Italian bread

Instructions
Mix the marinade in a gallon ziplock bag.
Add the cubed meat and allow to marinate refrigerated for at least 2-3 hours (overnight is best).
Put the meat on skewers (bamboo skewers should be soaked for 1 hour before using)
Grill over charcoal until cooked.
Serve with sliced Italian bread or rolls.

About the Dish
Spiedies are a regional specialty of Broome County NY. We even have an annual Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally. Spiedies were probably introduced by Italian immigrants from the Abruzzo area, who came to Broome County to work for the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company ("Which way EJ?"). In Italy the marinated skewers of lamb or goat are called spidducc'.
