Making a chicken pot pie, french fries, and gravy. Not the healthiest meal but it's good.

It's pretty hot here today, too, so I'm feeling like a margarita ;-) I was planning to make Greek pasta salad with leftover chicken I grilled Monday, but maybe I'll wing it and (thinking to the keyboard here) make a Mexican pasta salad instead. Grill some bell peppers and onions, cook pasta, chop chicken, make a dressing with mayo, sour cream, lime juice, cumin, chili powder and green chilies. And some sliced avocado on top. How does that sound?

btw, soon I won't be able to turn the oven on at all for a few months - we're renovating our kitchen. So I'm getting real friendly with the grill.

i'm starving! i made teryaki pork tenderloins on the grill last night (at 11pm, long story. my neighbors must think i'm nuts!) but i'm jones'ing for thai food, so i'm gonna head up to my fave little hole in the wall thai place on 9th and 56th, "thai basil".

my wonderful co-worker tonight said she was going to dinner at 5:30pm. i've been waiting for her to return, and she just popped her head in the door of my office and said she was just going now.

how many dinner hours does she think she gets?

just for that, i'm getting tom yum soup and pla muk yang (grilled squid skewers with fresh cilantro and mae ploy sauce on a bed of lettuce and carrots) as an appetizer.
not sure if i'll get the chicken prig king (sauteed chicken, herbs, and stringbeans), or the kuai tiaw bowl (thin rice noodles topped with piles of chicken, ground peanuts, ground dried chiles, cilantro, and some bizarre pickled stuff that tastes good but is unidentifiable ).

extra cilantro and sriracha, please.

BT, I haven't seen you around in a while. Glad to see you back (or were you here when I wasn't?) Anyway, glad to see you posting, even if I don't know what the heck you are eating.

It did infact turn into Caesar Salad and lobstah with steamed veggies and a baked tater. Sat outside of the restaurant, by some waterway, where I literally had ducks flying over my head for try and grasp my lobstah. That's it I thought, you can just go get your own. Okay, I'm lying, I really did share it with them, I couldn't resist them taking it right out of my hand.
