7/18/15 Saturday Night's Alright for...

Steak! We have a little New York strip that I'll pan fry (too hot out to grill), along with a surprisingly tasty Arkansas tomato, pepper, and green onion salad. Or whatever else I can find for a salad.

What's on your plate tonight?

I'll probably just nibble this evening. I stuffed myself with pizza, watermelon, chips and dips, and cake at Tyler's birthday party today.

SO requested chicken parm and a veggie (no pasta). So that's what's for dinner.

The SousChef came home from the grocery today with a load of chicken wings, plus another whole frozen duck.

I'll do some wings on the barby today, and cook the duck in a couple of days. I think I'll do some rice pilaf to go with the wings along with a salad.

Cheryl, I'm glad you had fun with little Tyler today.. Was he concerned about grandma's owie?

Chicken chop suey over rice, sides of fresh veggies from the garden, iced tea and French vanilla ice with whipped cream on top. Waaaay to hot here to cook outside today.

Thanks, K and Dawg. Tyler is over it - it's SO yesterday's news. He came over on Wednesday while I was cleaning and redressing the wound site, watched for a couple of minutes, got bored with it all, and turned on Curious George.

Duck sounds awesome, I haven't had it in years.

The heavens have opened up here! Fortunately, the BBQ is under cover.

The steak was probably one of the best I've had (she says modestly). It was only about 3/4 inch thick, so no oven needed, s and p, just a screaming hot cast iron pan. Vent fan was absolutely needed.

Of course the whole house filled with smoke, but luckily it's cooled off enough that we could finally open the windows.
