Dinner, Sunday, August 31st?

it's 5 o'clock. there's like 4 hours left in the day. NO ONE ate today?

well, i cleaned the pool, weeded and bug sprayed the garden (using a "green" spray), watered the new shrubs and potted plants, rinsed off the salt water fishing gear and put it away with the coolers and such, and then made my dinner.

buffalo sauced smoked chicken "cheesesteaks", made with shredded smoked chicken thighs, evoo and butter sauteed green bell peppers, hot cherry peppers, onions, dried savory, and fennel seed.

c'mon now. what did you cook or eat today, sunday, august 31?


Spring is finally here! I got so excited that I wet my plants...

I purposely intended today to be a "not doing anything" day and it was, pretty much, except for those things I wanted to do. I spent a good portion of the day out in my studio with Sally and Bella and some fun projects.

I'd planned for beer butt chicken, which is cooking nicely on the grill. Went out and picked the last of the Italian green beans. They're cleaned and are cooking. In a few minutes I'll pick the last of the cherry and grape tomatoes. A few cornmeal pan rolls with butter to help sop up the yummies left from the chicken. Iced tea to cool us off and more of the zucchini cake for dessert.

DH is under the weather with a cold that's going around, but we have a couple left-over grilled pork chops along with other stuff, so he won't starve, regardless of what he might tell you.

I'm going to pressure cook some barbecue spiced brisket and I made a pasta salad. We still have cole slaw left from last night. Talenti gelato for dessert. I think I got black cherry and sea salt carmel chocolate.

We had chicken and herb tortellini with a porcini tomato sauce.

I took some pork chops out of the freezer but they weren't thawed enough. They will wait for tomorrow. I had a frozen lasagna that I popped into the oven. Served it with garlic bread.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We ordered from the Greek pizza place. Stirling wanted lasagna and they seem to be the only place we like that delivers lasagna. I had the souvlaki platter. It was delicious.

Hope he feels better soon Dawg.

Himself has a self-induced upset stomach, having drunk too much coffee too quickly on an empty stomach. Toast is good, cheese wouldn't hurt him, and he needed some sort of veggie - grilled cheese with tomato on semolina bread. I had my sandwich on Challah with bread and butter pickles. Finally remember to grill sandwiches on my CI griddle with the burner only half-way up. I forget how quickly it can get screaming hot...and stay that way. I've made way too many "Cajun" sandwiches...
