Isn't pizza hut the place that threatened to fire all their low wage slaves if Romney didn't win?
If so, I wouldn't encourage them, no matter how cheap the eats re. People need sustaining too!

I switched to steak with the usual stuff... maybe with a blue cheese asparagus sauce.

We had pan-grilled bratwurst on Italian rolls with homemade jalapeno mustard, shredded lettuce and pickled banana peppers. Potato salad alongside. Off to the HarborFest fireworks!

DH went to his luncheon meeting. Since he was the main speaker, he ordered his lunch to go and got another for me! So we had lasagna and bread for supper.

We had our murder mystery party tonight. It couldn't have turned out better. The group all came in costume, and acted out their parts. We had some real hams.

I pretty much stuck with the planned dinner, although I also incorporated a few suggestion that DC'ers offered. Jennyema's stuffed tomatoes were a big hit, and instead of wrapping the shrimp appetizer in bacon, I used prosciutto instead. That turned out to be an excellent suggestion.

I went back and forth on whether or not to make Cornish Hens, but in the end we decided to go with them. Instead of roasting them in the oven, I brined them and did them on the grill. I have to say they came out fantastic - juicy, with just the right amount of smokiness.

Unfortunately, I totally got swamped trying to get everything cooked and plated, and didn't have time to take pictures, so I have nothing to post.

Thanks again to everyone who offered suggestions!

So glad to hear it went so well, Steve! Bummer about no pics.

We did a murder mystery dinner milleniums ago, Some of us were assigned parts according to the script. Spouses could do whatever. DH wore my trench coat and went as Columbo. He played the part well.
