Sofie and I are going to a friend's pool this afternoon while DH gets caught up on yard work and paperwork (poor guy!) so it's just an easy leftovers night whenever anyone's around, hungry and ready to eat!

Mixing cuisines a bit here, I'm thinking barbecued shrimp with hoisin/orange marmalade bbq sauce with pesto/tomato/parmesan crostini and caprese salads.

It *is* a lovely day here in SE VA - we just got back from a 7-mile bike ride in a local state park by the beach. It's 85 degrees and the humidity is low - can't get better than that

We had a really simple dinner of roast chicken, rice pilaf, cranberry sauce, garden salad, birthday cake and ice cream.

Ours was pork tenderloin cooked in the crock-pot, then served with a glaze of prepared mustard, molasses, vinegar, peach preserves, and ginger. Buttered French-style green beans on the side. No room or desire for dessert. Too hot. Still 90 degrees here at this hour.

i made a roast chicken that dw was wary of considering my stinker of chinken stew last night, but there were no leftovers .

i coated the boid inside and out with lemon juice, s&p, and paprika, and stuffed lemon and shallot halves inside. since the oven was on, i made real baked taters. dw made rice and steamed asparagrass.

It was Fisher's 5th birthday, sort of. Actually, that was on the 3rd but since I took him to the coast for that and the oldest kids couldn't get off of work, he's had about 4 birthday cakes so far this birthday. Seems like everytime someone comes over, they bring him a birthday cake - he's liking this a lot! But you know, with 7 kids, I eat a lot of freakin' birthday cake so the magic is kinda gone for me.

I love the idea of lemons stuffed in the chicken! I'll try it next time and let you know how many ways it can be screwed up!

Fired up the charcoal grill & made one of our favorites: Buffalo Chicken Sausage Sub Sandwiches - organic "Buffalo Chicken Sausages" grilled & sliced lengthwise, then piled onto grill-toasted Italian bread spread with blue-cheese dressing, Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce, & chopped Romaine lettuce.
