My Father-in-law Bill is quite the mixologist and makes some mean cocktails (remember the Sangria).  So I asked if he could provide the recipe for his awesome Tom Collins to the blog.  He obliged and wrote an entire post!  So without further ado, here is Bill.

Nothing is more American than the 4th of July barbecue and with Rex around the cooking is well taken care of but the drinks are my department. I thought back to all the summer shindigs we used to have in my aunt’s backyard and the adults always started the party with their favorite summertime cocktail, the Tom Collins and no one liked them or made them better than my grandmother.

Lemon Asparagus

The other day I made some broiled filets and while at the store I found some nice looking asparagus. Odd for this time of year, but heck it looked great. So I picked it up. Since I was using the oven for broiling I needed to come up with another way of making asparagus instead of roasting it. After a few minutes, I realized that steaming it and seasoning it afterwords would be perfect. Not only is this dish tasty, it is quick and extremely easy.
