I just wish I'd looked for avocados when I was at the store yesterday. Mashed and mixed with salsa makes an easy guacamole which would go nice with the gazpacho. *adding avocados to grocery list*
Yum! I just love Gazpacho :) heck, I love all things tomato! Like the shrimp idea :)

Lots of great ideas here! I am still not sure what to make here, though. I have some shopping to do in the early afternoon so I will probably figure it out at the store.

ok, i've got the veal and peppers cooking. the stuffed chops will have to wait. a couple of the chops were freezer burned, so i'll pound them down a bit, brown 'em, and they'll go in the sauce with the veal.

man, am i crispy. the door guy showed up early, so i haven't slept a wink. fortunately, he was a really nice andd handy guy, so he's coming back to do a bunch of trim work and some siding repairs, and maybe rewire the basement and put in a drop ceiling.

i could do it, but it takes me 3x as long to get it perfect, so i'd rather just work more o.t. and pay a pro to do it right at this point.

Leftover steamed ground chuck, crumbled and mixed with an equal serving of rice, dressed with Lite Soy Sauce and mild, sweet Thai Sriracha sauce.

I was really surprised at how the shrimp tasted. Kind of like a shrimp cocktail.

The shrimp idea was something someone else mentioned here, and I kicked myself for not having thought of it myself!

Even though it is way too hot, it is cooler than it will be the next few days (which are supposed to be over 100), so I will be making chili. QUICK chili, with canned beans, since I don't want the stove on any longer than it needs to be.

Tonight was a quick dinner of my summer pasta. Rigatoni with veggies from the garden sauteed in oil. Tonight it was zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, garlic, green and yellow peppers, and grape tomatoes. I added butter as the last with basil and oregano.
Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

Hi Katie!! Please expand on how you do this. I LOVE my stovetop smoker but have never done a BB roast. I've done many Tri Tips in it and it's outstanding after finishing on the grill.

Dinner tonight will be Rib Eye bone in steaks on the grill with corn on the cob, garlic bread and green salad.
