Dinner Menu - Tuesday 7/26/2016

No sea breeze today, so we're pushing 90. AC is on, so I'll be avoiding indoor cooking. Burgers on the grill, black bean and corn salad (Cheryl J's recipe).

Never a sea breeze here, and it's too hot for me to torture Himself by sending him out to grill. We'll have ham and cheese sammies panini style with the Griddler, and a big salad. Ice tea has been flowing liberally all afternoon. Thanks to the central air, the sweat has not.

I'm going to a cooking class with a friend tonight, so dinner will be made by the chef We went to his restaurant for our anniversary dinner.

I left DH a plate for his dinner.

Traditional New Mexican meal here; bowl of red and calabacitas.

109F here right now, so dinner will be something cool again. I'm thinking a cold meat loaf sandwich on whole wheat, sliced cucumber, and maybe a deviled egg. Lots of iced tea with lemon.

Weather temperature here is still in the triple digits. The water in the pool registered at 94F on the thermometer.

Today was weekly grocery shopping day, which meant I had to venture out into the "hot box." Did Glenn's mother's grocery shopping, too. This meant extra stops because she's particular about some items. So be it.

By the time I made it to shopping for our things, I was hot as a bear and nearly out of inspiration for tonight's meal, but...

I remembered there was still a portion of iceberg lettuce left from BLTs and that we are awash in fresh tomatoes. I also recalled that there were several 1-pound portions of cooked ground beef with onions and garlic in the freezer. Solution: tacos.

All I had to buy were some taco shells and some shredded cheese because all the other fixins were on hand.

Boy, did they ever hit the spot. We were little piggies.

87 degrees here right now with 20% humidity so it's a good afternoon for grilling. Cheryl, stay indoors!! ACK!

I'll be using the grill side burner to steam two beautiful artichokes, and shrimp kabobs seasoned with Tajin' will go on the grill.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

We have a visiting granddaughter from Florida. We took her into Boston for a duck boat tour. Got home and had a late lunch of cheeses, meats, etc. with bloody marys. Now she and SO are out at the mall and they promised to bring me back dinner.
