Dinner will be whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce (red sauce), and a garden salad.

that guy I'm married to called earlier, I've been shopping, and said, "Honey, I'm bringing home gorgeous tuna steaks, can't wait for them tonight, is that okay?" like I was going to say no. so plans have changed with the omission of stuffed shells but all else will remain same. stuffed shells tomorrow night since sauce is done.

Watched Gordon Elliott do a Follow that food show where the showcased food was lemon. He went to Rao's where I immediately thought of lemon chicken that they're so famous for. Someday, maybe someday, I'll get to eat there.

Got 11 quarts canned today, was hoping for 7, one canner load. and I don't know when dh will be home..it's one of those jobs that he can't leave till its done, and there is no cell phone range there. the potato salad is looking pretty good..
then potato salad for dinner it is! hope your day looks up soon, I know, it's hard to think of anything when it's that hot. have a great night....

A friend of mine had an art opening tonight, so we went to the reception at the gallery, and then to a party at her house afterward. They're from Colorado, so there was shrimp and scallop ceviche, posole, guacamole and fresh salsa with chips and some chopped mango, all washed down with sangria. Everything was great - I love ceviche.

i had a marie callenders frozen dinner, sweet and sour chicken. couldn't eat very much of it. nothing tastes good with this cold. in fact the 7up i tried to drink with it, tasted very strange.

I wasn't in the mood to cook, so I had a peanut butter sandwich with strawberry jam on whole wheat bread. Not the greatest dinner I ever had. LOL
