At the time I posted, it was a secret because I wasn't sure what I was going to do.

That Gumbo and Tart look wonderful guys!

I'm doing American Chop Suey tonight. Actually, I don't think I've ever done it, or it was so long ago I forgot. I followed your recipe pretty closely Andy, although I threw in about 2 Tbs of Porchini mushroom powder, and a tsp. of Magi. I had enough to freeze a small casserole for another time. SC is making glorified green salads.

I guess that sounded pretty pretentious Andy. That porcini powder and Maji is new to me just since being here.

Just went with a spring greens salad, heirloom tomatoes, radishes, Chinese pea pods, grated Gouda cheese, leftover roasted chicken breast, blanched asparagus, blueberries, chopped blanched almonds, and a balsamic blueberry vinegar EVOO dressing, S&P. It was too hot to cook.

Nice pics, Joey, Rock, and Taxy! Good sounding and inspiring meals all around here tonight.

I was hoping to grill the pork shoulder steak I thawed yesterday, but the sky suddenly clouded over and we got a good rain. I put the steak back in the coldest part of the fridge and will try again tomorrow.

Meanwhile, my tomatoes are ripening almost faster than I can use them, so I ended up with a stove top grilled tomato and mozzarella on sourdough, and watermelon.

I WAS full when I started this thread. What, with all the yummy pictures, I'm almost hungry again!

Spent way too long running errands and shopping today. At Market Basket, my last stop, I decided to treat Himself to lunch meat. Every once in a while he likes salami or bologna or something. Brought home 1/4 pound of each of those, plus some Va. ham and roasted turkey breast. A bit of Muenster slices, since mine look too butchered when I slice off a block. I had a ham and Muenster on a pretzel bagel, toasted until the cheese got melty. Himself made a "some-of" sandwich with almost all the meats (omitted turkey) and some provolone cheese we had on hand, drizzled with Italian sub oil. We DID have bowls of mixed fruits salad to redeem ourselves!

Just had dessert. It was something we haven't tried before, Häagen Dazs Gelato Limoncello. Oh my, that was superb. We will be buying that again.
