I haven't started baking yet, but there's a cheesecake and an apple pie on the list for later.

I think we're just going with either BBQ'd steaks or a beef stir fry. I have the meat marinating right now. I'll decide later.

Dave, I want to come to your house for dinner. Have you ever shared your Grandma Brown's Baked Beans recipe? I love baked beans and have a few favorite recipes, but I would like to try yours.

I also forgot to mention that I am having strawberry short cake for dessert tonight.

Well, we went to a local family restaurant we love called ABC. I had a portabello brie chicken burger with pesto mayo and wedge fries. It was very good though a little messy to eat. We came back and had dessert here - my experimental gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free trifle (so everyone could eat it). The was a tiny aftertaste in the custard but it was good. I will post details and pictures later.

Cook's Illustrated's pasta with garlic oil and toasted breadcrumbs (I used linguine), and a green salad.

Yes, they're a topping . First they're toasted in a little butter until dark brown, then added to a little chopped garlic and grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Very delicious.

Erm.. Grandma Brown's Baked Beans are a canned baked bean, that is their name. You put them in a baking dish and reheat in the oven. I do sprinkle brown sugar and pour maple syrup on top before I put them in the oven, but that is it. Sorry to disappoint.

GBBBs are only available in parts of NY, and some New England states. (They are made in Mexico, NY) My Mom brings me some cans when she comes to visit since I cannot get them here in Maryland.
