Nothing if I don't get my rear in gear. It's supposed to be hot dogs or burgers on the grill, along with potato salad and/or mixed bean salad. Andy, your breakfast sounds good. Maybe bugers et al tomorrow...

I cleared out the kitchen freezer in anticipation of doing the big freezer either tomorrow or Friday. Found 2 chicken breasts. Thawed them out and have them baking with some seasoned potatoes. I'll probably chop up some lettuce for a salad too. It's just me but I'm tired of sandwiches.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Hot today (although not by your standards) and I've been gardening - silly me - so not inclined to bother much. So omelette fines herbes and a glass of white wine. Followed by a peach cut up in another glass of white wine.

Feel mildly squiffy as not used to more than one glass of wine - I'm out of practice. So an early night tonight. For once I'm going to bed on the same day I got up.

Night-night everyone.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

I was gone all day but had the good sense to put a couple of really meaty country-style pork ribs into the crock-pot, along with some chopped onions and a whole package of fresh mushrooms I sliced thin. The remains of some chicken broth from the refrigerator and part of a package of onion soup mix completed the concoction. Sure smelled good when I came into the house.

I made some steamed rice 'cause there was lots of yummy juice and 'shrooms to be sopped up somehow. Still have a few of the tumbled tomatoes left from Saturday, which became our other side. Iced tea, of course, and the last of the strawberry pie for dessert.

There's been so much talk lately about Country French cooking sauce for chicken I had to try my hand with what I had avaliable. The browned skinless bone in chicky thighs are simmering away in their butter/mushroom/wine/milk gravy seasoned with dill, garlic, and herbs de Provence. It's sure smelling wonderful. We'll have it over mashed taters, and a green salad with garden tomatoes on the side.
Phew, I'm hot and having a large glass of wine till it's time to hit the kitchen again.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

We're getting ready to go out of town Friday, so I'm trying to use up stuff in the fridge. We had leftover barbecued pulled beef, potato salad, tomato-mozzarella-avocado salad and marinated cucumbers. Good stuff.

It's Wednesday the 23rd, What's for Dinner?

Ham, fresh corn on the cob (as Janis sang, get it while you can), some home grown cherry tomatoes and cukes. More cherries, grapes, and home grown blueberries. I love summer!

Oh, and happy 27th anniversary to us!

She who dies with the most toys, wins.
