28 July, Saturday...it's almost too hot to cook

We're going down the shore for the day. It's supposed to hit 90 today, sheesh.
Is it just me, or does spending the day at the beach make you hungry, too?

We're having a salad of roasted plums over boston lettuce with goat cheese rillettes and pumpernickle crouton. Fig balsamic dressing.

Dinner is surf and turf of lamb chops and crab cakes (it's so much easire when you buy the crab meat already pulled from the claws) with purple fingerling potatoes.

Dessert is vanilla pound cake with chocolate ice cream and chocolate praline sauce.

I'm making sangria for dinner.

I hope everyone has a wonderful satyrday!

Your dinner combo sounds interesting.
Love the salad idea.
For the Surf & Turf, I'll have one or the other. Couldn't do both together.
Alright, you twisted my arm. CC for me, please.

Enjoy your day....And remember to keep hydrated & the SPF. I don't want to hear they mistook you for lobster and dipped you in butta!

Yea, no more frying eggs on your chest cause the SPF wasn't high enough!

Yeah, we got lots of colour today. We rode the bikes all the way to Asbury Park before we got into the water.

So, what is everyone else making?????

How's Madam Marie these days?

Stop at the Wonder Bar for a kick-butt cheeseburger and some good tunes.

Way too hot today for much. Two minutes of moving outdoors and you're soaking wet.

Yep, that is what it's like here today as well...cold roast beef sandwiches on Moomie buns, chips, watermelon, chocolate chip cookies.

Oh, VeraBlue, you're making me miss the East! I'm a land locked east coast girl. How I wish I could spend a hot summer day at the ocean!!! I spent a summer working in Asbury Park, actually Ocean Grove, as a teenager. What a fun summer that was. Living a block from the ocean, walking the boardwalk (going to the Stoned Pony!). Sounds like you had a great day. Your menu sounds awesome!
