Dinner this Saturday, July 23rd?

we were supposed to go to my family's yearly summer get -together at my sister's estate today, but the little guy came diwn with something really bad so we'll be home today.
i wonder if dw will put him back in this summer camp after he recovers. he's only been at camp 2 weeks (a week before my vacation, and this past week afterwards), and he's gotten sick both times.

when i've picked him up each afternoon this week, i noticed the air conditioner was sadly insufficient keeping the room just barely sane in the 100 degree heat, but the room is getting increasingly dirty and stunk of urine and smelly kids.

i hope he doesn't mind spending more time at home with his papa.

anway, since we'll be home, i'm trying to decide what to make today. i went food shopping on the way home yesterday, so we have a choice of grilled sirloin tip steaks, grilled/sbr-sauced chicken thighs, turkey meatballs in a garlic and fresh basil tomato sauce, veal shoulder chops and peppers marinara, or scungilli fra diavolo.

what do you think i should make? whatever you guys choose, i'll make it and post pics.

so, what are you cooking or eating this saturday, the last in july 2011?

do they have leap year over there?

i'd think the upper crust would just cough and ramble a bit, figuring the extra time was a kickback from the vat, and wait until the calendars arranged themselves properly.

so, what are you cooking today, monsieur bolas?

it should be inspired, and you must name whatever it is "a la buckytom".

My vote is for the thighs, Tom. I almost bought some yesterday and probably will today, along with some more corn on the cob. For all the wings I grill, they just aren't the same as the dark meat of a well grilled chicken thigh.

I only buy dark meat, we only have chicken breast if I buy whole chickens
I find chicken breast dull and it lacks flavour! My favourite cut thigh with the leg still attached :)

Lot's of bug chewed stuff (that does not go particularly well together) from our local CSA-
swiss chard
scallions
turnips


salad or stir fry mix, or arugala
kale or collard greens
cucumbers
possibly tomatos

eggplant
summer squash and zucchini
'Main course' will probably be a ceci bean salad.

I'm thinking burgers on the grill. I have some in the freezer that can just be plopped on a grill. Got lettuce and tomato and half a package of bacon that I'll fry up and we'll have salads and have some chips too.
