The plan was Mexican stuffed peppers. Until Himself said he would not be home to grill tomorrow or Sunday. More star-gazing nights! I've been trying to get him and our burgers outside for at least an hour. I suppose after the sun goes down "late" isn't so important anymore. We'll have the leftover potato salad from yesterday, and a side of tomato/cuke/onion. So much for the coleslaw we would have tomorrow, but I prefer coleslaw a day or so after it is made.

Maybe today will be the day I remember to make the Bear Claw ice cream...

I picked up some fresh grouper from my local fishmonger and made ceviche, using red pepper, jalapeņo and a teeny onion from the garden. Served it with Mexican rice and fruit. Yummy

I'm roasting some split Cornish Game Hens, basted with a glaze of hot pepper jelly, lime juice and butter.

Sides to be determined.

What's going on at your house?
Not the best picture, but it sure was good. Sides were mushroom onion orzo, and mushroom spinach salads. The split hens were really tasty and fun to eat with fingers. Food should be fun, right?

I'll have one of the chicken thighs for dinner, and the rest for planned leftovers for tomorrow.
Yummy dinner here, too! Great looking plates, GG and Kay.
I sure do like Penzeys BBQ3000 - nice flavor without the sticky sweetness of most BBQ sauces. Sprinkle on and roast. Fox Point on the veggies.

I mentioned on another post that I don't eat chicken very often. So... what did I decide to have tonight?

Anyway, my daughter stopped by, and we had a nice chat while I pan fried some chicken for the two of us. I also made a pan sauce, roasted cauliflower, and a quick salad. it was a very impromptu dinner, but turned out nice.

Cheryl, Kayelle, and GG, your dinners look wonderful! Kayelle, I love Cornish Hens. I haven't had those for a while.

It's supposed to cool down tonight......sometime. That time isn't now, though, so another burrito is in the works for supper. Hopefully, this is the last of the summer heat and maybe I can actually start cooking again!

WOW! Everything sounds so good!

I have to say, both DH and I said that we donot want to go back to that Mexican joint again, WAY too expensive for what we got.
We both ordered from the ala carte menu:
2 Carne Asada soft tacos-no sides $7.99 (not much to it)
1 small Cadillac Margarita $8.95 (and I mean SMALL)
That's kinda steep for a teeny tiny town...
but the football game was a blast! and thank you God, it stopped raining!

dawgluver; Just to make life more interesting then it already is, my body decided to throw in another challenge. It wasnt enough with the muscle disease or the inflamed hip, no it had to tear my calf muscle on my good leg. It isnt a big tear, thank god, it just hard to stand up for a few more days.

Friday food will be soup, due to the ill squad .
