Our exchange student is taking my DH out to the ballgame for an early Father's Day dinner/present, so I will probably make myself a big salad with baby greens from the garden, some other veggies, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

Barb, sounds delicious!
SizzlininIN, so far every Tyler Florence recipe I've done has been excellent. Haven't tried his chx. parm though.

We're having hot and sweet Italian sausage and peppers in tomato broth over pasta.

It's not a recipe is the only problem
I wanted to make it for hubby and always have the ingreds on hand.
So, in a large bowl, I put a stick of real salted butter.
Mashed it with a fork to break up a bit.
Put in 1/2 cup white regular sugar.
Put in 1 cup AP flour.
Started to incorporate.
The butter ratio was too much so I added more flour.
Still too moist which is when I grabbed and added 1/4 cup corn starch.
Gently combined it, tossed it on a cookie sheet, scored with my wavy scorer, into the oven at 350 for 20 minutes, checked it, oh, not done, 14 minutes longer, done. And perfect.
Melted the caramel/chocolate chippers on top of a double boiler, and dipped 1/2 the cookies at the corner only, the other half I'll leave for the purest , that's the man.

Kim brought home some freshly ground chuck today, and we're having grilled burgers on wheat buns. I'd just a soon have a really good burger as a steak.

We went from 90 sun and humidity yesterday to 63 and dreary today! It was a great break from heat and a great day for a big pot of chili. I served it with rice and all the usual toppings. Mmmmm
