Well, we're on holiday and so far we've had more food in two days than I'd normally eat in a week! I'm NOT stepping on my scale when I get home!

Tonight we're having friends stop by for dinner. (They happen to be holidaying nearby, what a cool coincidence!) I'll do pork tenderloin on the grill, potatoes too, the salad will be a coleslaw since I have two bags of the stuff to use. I'll put out a fruit plate of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries to nibble. I don't have anything to do for a cooked veg so hopefully we'll figure something out there. They're bringing dessert.

Leftover chicken kabob's turned into a stir fry. We had bacon wrapped chicken kabobs with marinated mushrooms and slices of onion, peppers and pineapple. Grilled brushed with teriyaki marinate. Tonight's leftovers will be stir fried with noodles.

Hmm... I am slam out of scotch bonnet peppers for my jerk chicken.
Do y'all think the cooking gods will condemn me for substituting jalapeños?

More important than the cooking gods, will Mrs. Hoot condemn you (or worse)?

I took some sweet Italian sausages out of the freezer. I'll grill them along with some green pepper and onion for dinner tonight.

Just call it something else and tell her it's supposed to taste like that.
