Hot here, too, and to chill we spent a large part of the afternoon in the pool. Really nice.

Supper was one of my favorites chicken picatta per Giada De Laurentiis, mashed potatoes, buttered baby peas, our first cucumbers from the garden, iced tea, and a small sliver of strawberry swirl cream cheese pound cake for dessert. We're sufficiently full and chilled after our stint in the pool.

I'm pan frying some thick loin pork chops that I've brined. We'll also have some tri colored rice with mushrooms and steamed boccolini.

I ended up making the tuna pasta salad. Served it on top of red leaf lettuce from the garden and tomato from the farmers market.

Nice looking, GG. ~~ I ended up making the ham...etc. Oh my, for some reason the pot likker tastes extra-good tonight. Himself is still on the phone with our son (Goober had phone issues yesterday for Fathers' Day), has been for almost two hours, and the likker is dwindling. Not because it's cooking out, but because I keep getting "just one more tiny scoop" over and over.

I did decided to make the tossed salad too. Practice helps. I seem to be getting better at making those frikadeller.





Chocolate ice cream is churning as I type.

Hi all! We did sockeye on the BBQ tonight. Greek salad and plain old rice rounded out the meal. We were all too full for dessert.

Missed you all! I think I finally have this tablet thing figured out tho.
