And "thanks to our container garden" tonight!

Wilted cucumbers, a big bowl of three different kinds of cherry and grape tomatoes, grilled eggplant and, from the market, grilled steaks. Iced tea to wash it down. Lemon pudding with whipped cream and slivered almonds for dessert.

I grocery shopped today, so it was leftovers - the LAST of the leftovers. I did make new salads to go with, though. Starting tomorrow, I get to make new leftovers.

It was chicken cacciatore at this house last night, with a vegetarian version for the husband. And more peanut butter cookies for dessert.

We ended up at Busch Gardens and ate a bit at their Food and Wine Festival. Had jerk chicken with mango salsa and chocolate hazelnut banana crepes. Listened to our boy's trio play twice and came home. We were so tired, hot and sweaty we stopped at Zaxby's on the way home and picked up 2 of their salads.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We went to a friend's house for supper. The wife of the couple has Parkinson's, so she wanted to keep it simple. She never knows how much she will be able to do. It was a joint effort with her husband. I helped chop vegis for the very large salad. It was a roasted, grain fed chicken seasoned with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. It was really, really good.

Oops, I nearly forgot to mention the very tasty, roasted, seasoned, potato wedges.

It was a really fun evening. I've heard better dialogue, but the movie was exciting and I had to keep reminding myself to breathe

Here's a pic of our appetizer - a fruit and cheese plate. DH had fish and chips and I had a beef barbecue sandwich - no pics because the show had started

Thanks for the report GG...fun!

Last night with our oversize artichokes I served this. It's quite good and I've used it before, but this time I added crisp fried bacon with shallots on the top.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Your appetizer looks great, GG - glad you had a nice time.

Kay, I'm adding that mushroom ravioli to my TJ's list.

Beth...how was the crockpot elk roast? If I remember right, that's how my ex liked to do ours, decades ago. We loved it.
