Heating Up the Summer

Bluegrass in Mad Sq. Park

While passing by this week, Mark and I encountered a bluegrass concert in full swing at Madison Square Park.

Called the Madison Square Music Series, these live performances occur every Wednesday evening throughout the summer.


Friday night Mark cooked a barbeque in celebration of July 4th.

It was delicious. Along with roasted corn, we made a Korean barbeque recipe from a whole book of barbeque recipes. This one was a keeper.

We only marinaded the meat for 4 hours but it tasted like the Kalbi you find in Koreatown, and it was simple to make. The ingredients were quite accessible, the only remotely exotic ones being soy sauce and sesame oil.


Each rib was giant, about 4 to 5 inches long. We have enough roasted meat for sandwiches later this week.

Here's a recipe I found on the NPR website for kalbi, similar to the one we used, along with an article about the delicacy. Our recipe added a couple tablespoons of cider vinegar into the mix.

Wow those look wonderful.

Hope you have a good weekend. We have the Lord Mayor's Parade here this weekend and fireworks so that will be fun. Weather so far is good.

Hi Spandrel
I hope you try out the recipe. Let me know if you do.

I'll have to learn more of this Lord Mayor's parade. Sounds very...official.
