The yungun is going to a wedding this evening so it will be just the two of us. I'm thinking of making a big brunch with eggs, pancakes, English muffins, bacon and sausage then just doing leftover chili for supper.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Funny fried chicken story. Back in the 70's I worked for KFC during my high school days. One Saturday morning my boss discoverd that the place had been broken into during the night. Nothing was stolen but there was some old fried chicken eaten. (We used to have to keep every night's leftover chicken in a cardboard bucket so it could be counted up at the end of the week and placed in the books and accounted for as waste.) So, some of it was a few days old, left out on top of a commercial refrigerator. Later that evening the police phoned back and said they found the burglar. He was in the emergency at the hospital with bad salmonella poisoning. Once discovering he had salmonella , they asked him what he ate or where he could have gotten it. He was in so much pain and discomfort he divulged the whole story......

Scared the __it right out of him.

I'm having local family people over tonight and plan smoking a couple of slabs of St Louis spareribs.

I have no idea what the main will be tonight, but I have some asparagus to use up and some awesome hickory smoked bacon so they will combine for a yummy side.....I could make a meal out of just that!

just grazing today..it looks like I will be in walking distance of the apartment today so will return to eat on salad fixins', the last portion of pasta and spaghetti sauce, some leftover restaurant quesadillas and fresh banana bread.

Maybe this should be in the weird meal thread?

Waiting for my grocery delivery. If everything goes according to plan, salmon & green & white asparagus packets w/ fresh lemon juice, sliced lemons, & fresh dill. Spinach & lemon couscous on the side. Chocolate tart (from the bakery), topped with fresh raspberries.

Maybe some bacon wrapped asparagus is in your future, LP?

I managed to save three pieces to use in my dinner tonight. I've got them shredded already and the skin properly disposed of...

Come on up--I think there would be enough with a 12 lb turkey to feed a few extra mouths since it is only the two of us. If not, I made a bunch of homemade sausage today and english muffins. Those could probably be tucked in your pockets for the drive home.Any time.
