Tonight we had Orange/Curry/Ginger Salmon with rice and steamed asparagus. Dessert later will be ice cream with homemade hot fudge sauce.

I just had to put up a pic of the chicken thighs I grilled tonight......I used the BBQ Pit Boys method of grilling these thighs and I have to say they were pretty good! They are grilled on indirect heat after an initial sear, but the interesting bit is injecting BBQ sauce under the skin. I took it a bit further and injected some right into the meat!

After the potato tragedy, I opted for Rice-a Roni as a side ( who could blame me?) I did grill a veggie medley of cauliflower, carrot, celery and broccoli, that kinda makes up for the boxed rice doesn't it?

How late do those kids sleep? J/K, because our own circadian rhythm is more west coast even though we live east coast. When we lived in OH we called ourselves "nooners" at church because we would go to noon Mass. Now we're nooners because we rarely crawl out of bed before then. Well, I get up earlier, but Himself refuses to budge until the sun passes the meridian...and then some.

Nothing wrong with sleeping in and staying up late. Just saw a news story about "The Blue Zones" where people do that and live productively for a century and more. Interesting reading for anyone who's interested: Blue Zones -- National Geographic

S&P, how did you cook the cauliflower? It looks like it has a cheesy tan. My "cheese cauliflower" is steamed or roasted cauliflower with a cheese sauce poured over.

Simple dinner of beans and weenies. I used a package of those lil-dogs from Hillshire Farms and big can of baked beans. Tomato and cucumber salad on the side.
