I have leftover chicken from roasting a whole one yesterday (it started raining in the early evening, so we didn't grill it). I'm thinking of making a chicken soup or stew today. Maybe with some biscuits and salad.
Change of plans. I was too tired to make soup and salad, so I made stock for tomorrow and we had Maria Callender's chicken pot pies for dinner.

Seems like a lot of us pushed last night's plans into tonight dinner! At least I'm in good company. Decided I was too tired last night to do anything, so Himself finished the bean and ham soup and I had 1) cottage cheese and strawberries and 2) peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole wheat bread. Been so danged run down lately. Doc thinks it's because my sodium levels are low whenever the vampire takes blood. Until he's done figuring it out I have an excuse for being lazy.

Himself grilled 6 chicken breasts tonight. 2 had fajita seasoning for Wednesday's dinner. The rest were one each of: Penzeys Berbere seasoning (have the ice cream handy-it is screaming hot!), a Jamaican jerk seasoning I mixed from a recipe I found online (not as hot but still very zippy), a South African Smoke seasoning from Trader Joe's and a lemon zest-pepper-basil-salt rub I made from ingredients on hand. Did a bag of Carolina Long Grain and Wild rice blend and steamed broccoli topped with a smoked Gouda cheese sauce.

FWIW, the Penzeys Berbere seasoning was so hot that Himself cooled his pipes with a Bass Ale. He's not one to drink beer with dinner as a rule. Guess this seasoning required breaking the rules.

Unfortunately, no matter HOW high a fence is I bet it wouldn't block the very annoying barking that comes from next door. It seems like a dog can't be trained when the dog owner can't be taught. Pity.

no dogs, thank god. just drunks.

since baseball practice was cancelled due to rain, dw was able to deal with the fence guy (she's much tougher than i am with contractors having worked in real estate management/construction for almost 20 years) while i cooked.

dinner ended up being parmesan and peppered chicken fingers and french fries:
