Happy Father's Day! And US Open weekend, for the golf fans among us; I never managed to get my index under 17, and I don't play nearly as much as I'd like to these days, but I do enjoy watching the Major golf tournaments. I'm on deadline, so it's background noise this week; call me a nerd, I don't care, I'm watching golf.

Speaking of Father's Day, my friends at the Taste Buds Management Group have specials this weekend; a four-pack of beer for dad at Zea's, a beer glass and a gift card at Semolina's. I'm heading to Houmas House for lunch today, and am making plans for the Smoked Meat Festival in Ville Platte next weekend; it's hot, and it's rainy, but I'm not letting the weather keep me in the house.

Find something to do this weekend, enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and as always, let me know what's on your mind

Louisiana Jumbo Lump Crab with Creole Tomatoes

Louisiana Jumbo Lump Crab with Creole Tomatoes

This is one of Chef Chris Montero's family's favorite summer salads. BONUS- a Sauce Ravigote and a Lemon Confit you'll use all summer to liven up green salads, fish, boiled shrimp, etc.

Grilled Shrimp over Corn Macque Choux

Grilled Shrimp over Corn Macque Choux

This time of year, shrimp are running under $5.00 per pound at the seafood markets, and corn is 10 ears for a dollar. You can prep and make the Macque Choux while the shrimp marinate, and have a delicious seasonal meal on the table in about half an hour.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Jezebel Sauce

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Jezebel Sauce

This first appeared in LK&C's July/Aug 2014 edition; this was a reader favorite. The pork needs to marinate at least 4 hours, and can go for up to 3 days, and the Jezebel Sauce needs to meld for at least 8 hours and will hold in the refrigerator for up to 4 months. This means all your prep work can be done several days in advance. I bet you'll make it more than once this summer.
