Chicken and veggies in gravy over mashed potatoes.

Bacon cheeseburgers with roasted rosemary/garlic potatoes. Fresh veggie tray on the side.

If I could bottle the juice on the plate from those tomatoes, I would be a rich man

Grilled Burritos

For these, first I laid down a good sprinkling of cheddar cheese on microwave softened flour tortillas. , then a dollop of baked beans (they are kind of chile - molasses-ey, so that’s all right), then some diced boneless pork ribs ( I think they were odd sized pork loin cuts, and are pretty tender) . Finally some jalapenos which I wasn’t too careful about seeding, which spiffed these babies right up, a sprinkle of dice onion and another layer of shredded cheese across the top. Rolled them up as tight as possible and glued them shut with some bean drippings. Then I transferred them to the gas grill for some quick heating hopefully all the way through and come off the grill branded with grill marks like range cattle way out west -- before the tortillas got over cooked. I made Two, and am now as stuffed as they were. And yes, the tortillas got a little crisp. Hence, it was a good thing to have a little sour cream and Herdez Hot sauce on hand. I guess this is a good description about using up leftovers: Finger lickin’ good.

They just got in a shipment of beautiful copperhead salmon yesterday at the store, so I grilled up a few fillets tonight. No extravagant seasonings, just a little salt, pepper, and olive oil.

On the side we had a spinach salad tossed with hot bacon dressing. I used to make those all the time, but could never get our daughter to try it, due to her intense hatred of spinach. Tonight I just about fell over when she asked if I would make her one, too. She tried it and declared it delicious. The girl is growing up!

Tossed a few chicken breasts in the oven (seasoned with some smoked paprika, S&P), frozen green beans, and coleslaw. Finished off that fabulous chocolate ice cream for dessert.

The weather was foul here so the chicken thighs I was going to BBQ went into a Biryani. The first pic is the thighs in the yogurt and spice mix.2nd pic is with the part cooked basmati. 3rd pic is the cooked Biri.

I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

I marinated a sliced red onion and yellow squash from the garden in evoo, red wine vinegar, Italian herbs and S&P, then grilled them with some Italian sausage and corn on the cob. I cut the corn off the cob and cut the rest into bite-sized pieces, then mixed it all with rotini and sprinkled it with pickled banana peppers, more evoo and some hot sauce. Delish.

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller
