Grilled chicken thighs, green salad and streamed broccoli. I had some Trader Joe's pizza dough that needed to get used, so I made some bread sticks.

Bunny, looking at your signature, have you tried this? It's excellent! Sipping on the last glass from dinner now.

Butternut Chardonnay, California « BNA wine group

Tonight I made Tyler Florence's Chicken Enchiladas with lots of tweaks. Delicious!

No I have not Kay, but as soon as I read your post, I thought yum that sounds good, Chardonnay is my favorite! I haven't seen Butternut here, but I will look for it. Thanks!

Stirling and I went to one of our favourite local restos, La Porte Grecque. It's my birthday on Mother's Day, so we celebrated it early. We forgot to bring our own wine, so I dashed across the street to March Adonis and bought a bottle of Cte du Rhne. The supper was superb. Stirling had the shish kabob with Caesar salad and I had the bacon wrapped scallops with a salad and rosemary roasted potatoes. I lucked out. It was on the table d'hte menu, so I got an appetizer with that. I chose the dolmas. I had galaktobourekos for dessert. It was excellent. Stirling had apple pie, which he said was good, but not as good as mine.

Didn't cook, unless you count two pans of scones. Instead, supper tonight was hot dogs, potato salad, and a can of bake beans not fussed up.

What did you have today?
When I read the title I thought you meant "draft" as in escaping to Canada to dodge the draft. Was very confused as I thought your armed forces were volunteer organisations.

Is the NFL draft when they decide who's doing to play who?

Sterling certainly knows which side his bread is buttered on

Cte du Rhne - French red wine from the Rhne region of France
shish kabob - according to Wikipedia, "Kebab is a Middle Eastern dish of pieces of meat, fish, or vegetables roasted or grilled on a skewer or spit..."
table d'hte menu - again, from Wikipedia, "In restaurant terminology a table d'hte menu is a menu where multi-course meals with only a few choices are charged at a fixed total price."
dolmas - stuffed grape leaves, usually has rice



galaktobourekos - Greek custard based dessert
