Hot, hot, hot, hot here. And...humid. Air you can wear.

We had browned pork chops simmered in a lemon-tomato sauce, buttered noodles, steamed spinach, and iced tea. Too hot to eat much more, so no dessert. We'll be relieved when this heat subsides.

Date night at Casa Grecque. Stirling had the souvlaki plate and I had langoustines (scampi, not shrimp-scampi). It was delicious. I had baklava for dessert and Stirling had a slice of strawberry layer cake.

CWS, YOU may not love autocorrect, but I absolutely enjoyed your posts - but not your problem. Thanks for the giggles.

And we had Chinese dine-in! We ran errands all afternoon and into the evening. By the time we were leaving our last stop we had serious cases of the grumbellies. Since we've had on-and-off tastes for Chinese lately, we headed to our favorite spot. 'Twas an off night. Combo platters around. Himself has his egg roll and fried rice with General Gau's Chicken. I had mine with Cashew Chicken. I still have a taste for good Chinese.

Aw, that's a bummer, CG Ours was good. I had orange chicken with pork fried rice and my mom, in town for the night, had beef with broccoli and white rice. DH had leftovers from the night before.

I was going to do something impressive with all the leftover roast duck and searched for ideas. Instead, we just ate it cave man style and enjoyed ever last shred of that quacker.
