I got up a 5:30 a.m. to make a layered bean dip to take to an BBQ in the afternoon. At 9:30 a.m. I met I bunch of friends for a round of miniature golf. Then we went to the park/pond to BBQ and swim. It was lots of fun. One of the group bought a bocce ball set, so we played a few games of that. For food we had tri-tip, macaroni salad, green salad, potato salad, pasta salad, baked beans, a bowl of concord grapes, my layered bean dip with tortilla chips, berry cobbler, and chocolate cupcakes. I think a good time was had by all and I am still stuffed from all the food.

We had lunch out so bought some lovely white peaches walking home to have for supper. We bought them while we were still and wadling through Milan like a pair of stuffed peguins, so needless to say by supper time we were feeling less penguine-ish and more piggy. My husband had a bowl of gnocchi and fresh pesto then after the peaches we noshed togather a shared glass of vin santo and a handful of biscotti while watching a video.

We are having a picky fridge day today...we move back into a hotel on Friday so we have to empty the fridge!

It was so hot & humid here yesterday (96 in the shade), that by the end of day I was completely knackered. So, husband picked up a "Romano Ranch" pizza from one of our local Italian places. It's one of my favorites - a base of grated parmesan & romano cheeses mixed with a little ranch dressing & then more than generously topped with paper-thin slices of fresh tomato, cooked spinach, & sauteed mushrooms.

btw, if you wanna try an amazing midlle eastern/greek-ish dessert, go to the parkway diner in elmwood park on 46 east. order a piece of something caled kataifa ekmek. you'll thank me (hopefully with some baklava).


for dinner tonight: since i had to work 8p last night until noon today, then i'm back in at 8pm tonight, i didn't get a chance to make anything. i inhaled some leftover arroz con pollo for lunch, and now i'm back at work. probably gonna run and get some cheap thai food, or maybe french. haven't decided yet.
You want some baklava, huh? You will have to fight my daughter for it. I made it especially for her. She is leaving for college tomorrow morning.... She is pretty tough for a 17 year old. See, she is a scorpio, and even I am in awe of her temper at times, hahha. Thank you for the tip of the strange sounding greek food thing. Care to tell me what it actually is???

vb, kataifa ekmek is a custard dessert.

it's a bed of a loose shredded wheat that's soaked in simple syrup or honey, then it's topped with a layer of custard, than another layer of whipped cream, then slivered almonds.
it's worth the stop.

hmmm, a 17 y.o. girl? i'd probably fold faster than superman on wash day.
i wasn't any good with them when i was 17 or 18. i doubt i'd be any better now...

Bucky,
I made the limey thymey chicken strips..The only thing I did different was to use fresh parsley and I also added sliced sauteed mushrooms at the end after I got the sauce reduced..I made 9 sliced up chicken breasts, thinking I'd have some for lunch tomorrow..NOPE, they did the whole thing in.
