Been staining the fence and deck since 8 AM, so dinner is Thai takeout, downed with a couple of cold ones.

Oh, that looks good Rocklobster!

I fired up the Weber early this afternoon and grilled some chicken drums and Pattypan squash, and made a potato salad with bacon and hard cooked eggs to go alongside. Very good. Dinner is done, cleanup is done, and it's only 4:30. Yay!

Great looking food Rock and Cheryl ...

I'll be doing the second pork tenderloin from the package on the grill. It's been marinating in Noh Cha Shu marinade since yesterday. I'll use the grill basket for some fresh veggies, and also make some sort of thrown together fried rice.

We had chicken cordon bleu with mashed taters and green beans. Both DH and the yungun were home tonight for a change. Was nice to cook for the family again.

I was going to try two new recipes, one needed the grill. The weather radar looked like the second coming of Noah this afternoon/early evening, so I adjusted the meal. The "summery Greek salad with bulgur and mozzarella" side dish became the entree with the addition of my Dolly Parton boneless chicken breast going on the griddler and divided into our bowls, along with the addition of a plum tomato for each of us to give the dish some color. No watercress at the store, so I subbed arugula since they both have that peppery bite.

I'll make the Greek salad again with a couple of adjustment. First, the bulgur gets prepped the day before or earlier in the day...I forgot just how long it's supposed to soak. Also, the dish needed more olives. I'll either double the quantity of the green olives, or toss in an equal amount of Kalamata.

We are traveling in California, today we had two meals out. I had a prime rib sandwich with blue cheese for lunch, very yummy with a local Petaluma micro brew. Dinner was a very small order of bacon Mac and cheese with a sampler of micro brews, (different micro brewery) lol! We are supposed to be wine tasting!

Petaluma is such a beautiful area. Have a great vacation, bunny!

Ate the leftovers for a week (adhering to my "go big, or go home policy") and sent everyone home with a week's worth of leftovers...ummm...portion control ?]
