You home yet?
For all the time chicken takes on the grill, you oughta cook your fries on their too and utilize the fuel you're burning. Thick cut wedges, seasoned well, placed in a foil tray with EVOO and butter.... mmmm.... just a suggestion

I'm having those chicken thighs that the ice cream replaced last night . I haven't decided how yet.

Moroccan-style vegetable couscous. Homemade dark chocolate ice cream for dessert.

I decided to pan fry the thighs. A little changeup from grilling and so I could make gravy. Good thing I had some frozen PC pork juice on hand, I was out of chicken broth I grilled the corn so my grill wouldn't feel like I was neglecting it

Well, for some reason we lost power for about three hours this afternoon, so I stopped by a Greek restaurant for some takeout on the way home. Of course, as soon as I pulled up to the house, the power came back on

With Hanna blowing through tomorrow, what we cook will depend on whether we have power or not. See ya Sunday

That is one of the reasons that if I have any say so, I will always have a gas stove.

We (the Ex and I), ate Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, veggies (don't recall whitch ones) by candle light durning a ice storm years ago.

I remember that storm! I had no power for a few days but I had a fire place, a stock of wood, and cast iron pot and fry pan and an old-style percolator coffee pot. Like camping but much colder.

How sad this was not the best festival we'd attended... We split a chicken parm and rice ball. The rice ball was better than the chicken parm but the gravy on both was very bland. We found the area with the beer and wine, and all they had was an australian red! How do you not have italian wine at an italian festival?? Then, we finally found the booth my breadbaker/deli guy was running and finally had some great food. We had bruschetta, tomato foccacia and sweet calzones.

While the food may have been less than stellar, it's always a pleasure to be in Sinatra park by the river with the full NYC skyline in view.
