Never had smoked balsamic vinegar, you say? You should. It's magnificent.




If my chicken would look like that, Steve, I'm in! Where do you find smoked balsamic?

We get leftovers tonight here.

Those pictures look finger licking good!

We had easy Mexican chicken and rice. I just browned some seasoned chicken thighs, added some rice and onions to the skillet to brown a bit and topped the chicken with Herdez Salsa along with some water and salsa to the surrounding rice. Covered the skillet and baked for 35 minutes in the oven. Easy peazy and good!
Green salad a la Steve.

The bottle I have was purchased while I was in Phoenix last month. But I just Googled "smoked balsamic" tonight, and it's available online from a few different stores.

Love the stuff! It tastes like a cross between balsamic and bacon.

I made a huge salad (baby spinach, kale, and swiss chard) with yellow sweet pepper, cucumber, radish, celery, green onion, chives, pansy blossoms, and blackberries dressed with simple EVOO and cane vinegar, freshly ground black pepper.

Rock, that steak looks so good if you were a prison cook I'd commit a crime!

Steve, that chicken has a nice sear. Did you do it on the grill outside or on a grill pan in the kitchen?

We had a rotisserie chicken with Caesar salad (me) and Greek salad (TB). I am making my own dressings so that they are safe for us and I am having a lot of fun with it!
