Another beautiful day! We had originally planned to go out for dinner tonight, but it was so nice we decided to stay home and cook.

Grilled chicken with French herbs, golden beets and carrots, and a salad with fresh buttermilk dressing (still trying to use up the buttermilk from pancake day).

We had a large salad (lettuce, celery, thinly sliced carrots, thinly sliced celery, and scallions) with chopped chicken white meat (from a Costco rotisserie chicken). I made a quick salad dressing: mayo, sour cream, cider vinegar, tarragon vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, and a "glug" of fish sauce. We had with a lovely Portuguese rosť, Casal Mendes. It was just the ticket in this hot weather. Oh yeah, I cooked up three strips of bacon so we could have bacon crumbles on the salad.

I cooked two burgers had one tonight and saved one for tomorrow night. The one that I ate was one of the best burgers I ever had. This thing is worth the money just for cooking burgers.

I did pass on the potato salad but had some farm fresh tomatoes.

Ditto. It was chicken and it's hot. I often prefer white or rose in hot weather, 'cause the are cold!

Some folks prefer red; some prefer white.

I almost always drink according to the temperature. If it's hot, I tend to drink whites, rose, or even fruit wines. Or sometimes I drink beer. In the winter, I drink mostly red wine, and occasionally brandy.

Sometimes I drink both. We started with the white tonight with dinner, but ended up opening a red wine later on after it got dark and cooled down.

Brandy with supper? Why not, my Scottish (ex) MIL once served us Scotch with supper.
