How about some Mai Tai's, Vera? I'll bring finger foods...I like skewers with ham, cheese, pineapple and olives with a drink like that.

I made some really good homemade salsa the other night, which inspired Kim to buy stuff for tacos. So tonight, tacos it is.
We get by with a little help from our friends

We've got to take the last load from the garage to storage. Then I think it's home for a salad topped with sliced grilled steak and blue cheese dressing, some sourdough bread, and maybe some lovely melon.

Well, I made the salmon. It's good. Different, but good. PeppA isn't to thrilled with it, but she did eat three pieces. The oldest boy, Stephen, wants more, but he has to finish his sides first.

I did adulterate it a little bit. I had to put some Bullseye on my fish.

I've just found the Ultimate cinnamon roll recipe, have the dough now rising for 2 hours. I took a turkey tenderloin out of the freezer and also see that I have spinach in the freezer. So, I'm thinkin spinach souffle with creamy sauce and pureed (sort of) who knows, with thin parmesan slabs in there and some nutmeg and butter of course, plus, now I'm looking for a pasta recipe where I can use some of my varieties of basil from the back yard. Shouldn't be hard to find. Greens with my little yellow miniature pear tomatoes and my home made 10,000,000 Island salad dressing that is (lucky for me) to die for. I love it when I goof good! I think that'll do it. Thanks for making me think!
I'll set out a plate, the front door is open and waiting

Tonight I made a batch of one of my favorite light (& super quick) Italian soups - Stracciatella - which is basically a sort of Italian Eggdrop soup with spinach. To make it a more substantial supper, I cooked some spinach/parmesan ravioli separately & added them to the soup before serving.

We had pan seared salmon and smothered taters with peppers, onions, and garlic.

I had this for this first time a couple of weeks ago. It was so good I could have ate the whole pot. One of the firefighters that I was working with made it for the whole station. I love recipe that just requires you to dump all the ingredients in a big pot.

For dinner I had tacos with guacamole.
