Probably will just snack today. We had a big potluck picnic at church for lunch so ate more than usual for midday meal.

Funny you mentioned a Monkee's song title. They just released a new album. It's pretty good...

Thai chicken thighs (the recipe that Kayelle posted the other day), lime basmati rice, broc. I stopped at the Asian market to get some sweet chili sauce and fish sauce. They had a few brands of fish sauce, so I grabbed one at random. When I got to the checkout:

Store guy - "Do you know what you are doing with this?"
Me - "No. The recipe calls for it, but I've never used it before."
Store guy - "Then you don't want this. Get the clear sauce - Squid brand. This stuff scares even me."

Now I know that there is more than one type of fish sauce. But at $1.99 for a 25 oz. bottle, I think I have a lifetime supply.

Rock, glad you mentioned that! Will check it out!

Tenspeed, that cracked me up! I use fish sauce for a lot of things. Have fun with it!

Hope you like that recipe as much as we do 10speed. I noticed on another thread that you aren't a salt lover like me, so go easy on the fish sauce.

SC got a pork shoulder out of the freezer, and I'll be doing Kaluha pig in the Nesco Roaster.

You inspired me. I'm retrieve a tub of sauce with meatballs and sausages from the deep freeze for tonight.

We're going out for my birthday dinner tonight, to a local tapas place that is having a special dinner with tequila pairings. Should be good!

Looks like a fun night, GG. Have a great time!

It's cool-ish and rainy today. A decent summer day to run the oven. We'll have smothered chicken breasts (peppers, onions, mushrooms and mozz cheese) with broccoli and salads. Might toss a halved red potato or two into the pan with the chicken, but not sure yet.

Dessert tonight. I have a boatload of strawberries - I need to use 'em before I lose 'em. Lots of berries over a little pound cake with a splurt of whipping cream.
