I'm thinking chicken cordon bleu for the main but haven't decided sides yet. Maybe Alfredo noodles. I'll see what I'm in the mood for when it comes time to cook!

Thanks :) I'll mail you some ;p
It does have homemade apricot chutney and homemade curry paste in. Made it with slivers of beef tenderloin, fresh tomatoes from the garden, grated apple, fall apart tender onions. And then served with savoury sweet potato mash with fresh butter.

What's the recipe for the curry you mentioned? It sound good!

It is a mixed bag in our house tonight. My sinuses are at it again and all my teeth hurt so I am going to have more of the awesome Costco chicken salad. I am cooking roast beef for DH's sandwiches so will puree some for Dad with gravy and mashed potatoes. I think DH will get gluten free bratwurst with green salad.

I am beginning to feel like I live in a restaurant - even the dogs are getting slightly different meals.

Oh baby. I must be the only one who hasn't thrown some chicken thighs on the grill yet this year. Looking very delcious, Bolas.

I'm probably going to go with some fish tacos tonight. I'm not sure if I will try to incorporate the smoked salmon into tonight's meal or not.

Flip and click. You bet.
Well grilled chicken is one of the most photogenic foods, IMO. Especially with a little caramelizing of the sauce taking place.

I just had more salmon dip and crackers for lunch. It's pretty good cold, too.

It has been too hot to have the oven on, but since it is "only" supposed to get up to 95 today I am going to make country style pork ribs, done in the oven on a bed of sauerkraut. Along with that we will have mashed potatoes and peas. I have been SO looking forward to the ribs and sauerkraut ever since I bought the ribs a week or so ago.
