Yum, maybe some Panda Express chinese food? :) That bourbon/garlic chicken stuff at Panda Express is great.

I made chicken fajitas tonight. I can never make it quite as good as how the local mom and pop Mexican restaurant does it. I think they cook it at higher temps and it comes out sizzling, and they light it on fire.

Also their rice is better even though it looks pretty plain. They might be cooking it in pure lard or something. lol. Good stuff.

Sadly, no. They were planning on picking up pizza but left so late that the pizzeria was closed. Had leftover orange chicken.

First time poster but been lurking here for a while.

I was thinking all day at work about getting home to cook some swordfish that I found on sale. Also eager to use the new microplane that I got this past weekend. Marinated the swordfish in a lime cilantro marinade and grilled it on my cast iron griddle. Grilled up some veggies and boiled a pot of rice. Fresh cilantro is my fave this summer. Dinner paired with a fruity IPA.

Welcome milkbaby!
Low 90's with high humidity here. Went to BJ's to restock our San Pellegrino supply and picked up some tricolored tortellini that claimed to be made with five cheeses while I was browsing. Followed the package directions for cooking, said 4 minutes after returning to a boil, WRONG! After 12 minutes they were passable. Made a cold pasta salad with a balsamic vinaigrette. I really think the only cheese in the salad were the parm and motz I added. The taste, even with the lack of the five cheeses, was pretty good. Won't buy that brand again, but the really sad thing is it came as a two pack!

Many cultures eat food heavy in chilis to keep cool when it is hot and humid!

Here it's 35 - 37 C most days. The grapes are loving it, but we're hot, so definitely something cold, with an ice cold Campari to start off with

Welcome to DC, milkbaby! Your dinner looks great - nice to see you join in and share your lovely home cooked meal. Stick around!

Joey - looks fabulous as always.

Andy, I hope you, SO, and the granddaughter are having a great visit.

Kay, yes I've been staying inside as much as possible, except for when I set up the Slip 'n Slide for Tyler out under the shade tree. He loves it. I just take my iced tea and sit on the patio in the shade and watch him.

tenspeed, I'm glad you're enjoying that black bean and corn salad recipe - it's a good one for hot weather, I really need to make it again.

Try to stay cool, everyone!
