I'm going to throw some wings on the grill. Maybe with a hot hot sauce for something different. Something that burns for a while and I'll feel it tomorrow
And I have lots of carrots, too, but I'll eat them raw with blue cheese dressing

What season is open pdswife?

Give us this day our daily bacon.

I'm like pdswife ... DH is at a concert with a friend and we leave for 2 1/2 weeks on Monday so not much left in the house. It'll be either toast and cottage cheese or a frozen pizza.

and for dessert....home made cheesecake with blueberry topping....I made the cheese, made up the recipe and practically picked the blueberries...

maybe we will eat dessert first
Oh Beth, this sounds heavenly! And your cheesecake looks divine! Your guests are very fortunate people!

We're going to a neighborhood potluck, so I have chicken wings on the grill that were marinated in garlic, soy sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I also marinated some red, yellow and green chopped peppers and onions in the same marinade; we'll "stir-fry" those on a grill wok and sprinkle them around the bowl of wings.

After roasting the artichokes, which smelled wonderful, I wasn't pleased with the presentation, especially some of the toastier leaves.

So...I pulled the pan to the stove top and added heavy cream to it. Then, I pureed the entire thing. Long story short, I turned it into cool roasted artichoke soup, to which I'm going to add a maques choux confetti.

Way more work than I was looking for
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

We went to the last graduation party of the season, I hope, and had bbq chicken,corn on the cob, burgers, layered salad, fruit salad and a lot of other things that I didn't try. Actually, everything was really tasty.
