Dinner on July 2, 2012

In what must be a small miracle, everyone is actually home for dinner in our family tonight! The planets must be aligned.

I'm thinking I will try to get Ken's birthday cake (first post) made today, and I'm thinking I might just try my hand at beer butt chicken. Never done one (no one drinks beer here) but I have one left over from the party on the weekend so it seems apropos.

That's entree and dessert covered. If there are nice avocados at the produce market we'll have tomato avocado salad, if not...um...coleslaw maybe? I'll probably toss a couple of potatoes on the BBQ while the chicken is cooking and call that dinner.

What's up for everyone else tonight?

I pulled some chicken thighs out of the freezer last night and was not sure what to do, but DH is home from work as we are both still fluish (I am much better, but he is not).

So, it will be a nice pot of chicken soup! All cooked an yummy, I will split it into two pots, putting rice pasta in one and regular in the other. Then we can just help ourselves when we want it.

No idea. We're on the road for vacation, so will eat out somewhere.
