Dinner Wed. 6/29/16

It's almost tomorrow on the left coast. Did anyone eat? Didn't want the day to pass without a dinner thread.

We picked up a rotisserie chicken and made a salad, so it was less than memorable.

We had chicken too. Craig grilled mojo/adobo marinated thighs, as well as zucchini, red peppers and yellow squash. Cumin rice to go with .

One of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Mayan pork tacos (cochinita pibil) with pickled red onions and refried beans. And a margarita or two.

We went out to celebrate my birthday with the kids. Back to the same restaurant we had their birthday dinner at in December - Bourbon Street Barrel Room. We had an assortment of appetizers, then dinner. I reprised the Shrimp and Grits, Himself had Jambalaya, Loverly had blackened catfish, and Goober enjoyed his oyster Po-boy. Happy Hours on-tap beers were two bucks off, so we happily consumed two apiece. Then off to touring spit-shined Cleveland for dessert. We didn't eat anything, seeing Cleveland WAS the sweet treat.

I diced up leftover pork and veggie souvlaki and put it on top of salad greens. Made a dressing by thinning tzatziki with half and half and made bruschetta topped with fresh basil pesto, chopped garden tomatoes and shredded Parmesan cheese. Delish.

I had an elk burger, heirloom tomato slices, and some cottage cheese. It didn't look very fancy, so I almost didn't post the photo, but here it is. Growing up in the midwest in the 1960s, a meal like this would have been called a "diet plate." It still is, in my book.

Looks yummy to me, Steve. I should get some cottage cheese. It's nice to have in the summer when it's so hot.
