BBQ Baby back ribs, grilled tilapia fillets, and marinated chicken for the mains.

Store-bought cole slaw, caesar salad, grilled corn on the cob, homemade yeast rolls, and fruit salad (watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries and grapes).

Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

Got Garlic does hers with wine I think, just pour some in an empty soda can. :)

Oh yeah!
Brats and dogs on the grill, a pasta salad maybe.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Sure do. It's an idea I picked up from Katie E last year. Fill a clean soda can halfway with wine (I usually use pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc), then add a clove of sliced garlic and your favorite herb - at different times, I've used tarragon, rosemary and thyme. Sometimes I put some herb sprigs under the breast skin, too. Made one that way yesterday, in fact, with thyme.

We usually eat the wings, legs and thighs the first night, then I use the breasts for other things during the week. I'm planning to make a quiche for an easy breakfast for the upcoming week, and chicken Alfredo for dinner one night.

Just found out DD and her BF might come for dinner but I was planning this dinner anyway.
Baked ham shank
scalloped potatoes
mustard carrots
The only difference if they come is I will make dessert - either molten chocolate cake or sticky maple pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Decided to spiff up our burgers today, so I roasted a couple of heads of garlic. I'm going to use some to "bury" inside a couple of hamburger patties along with some crumbled blue cheese. Think it should be tasty.

I'll use the remaining head of garlic in another loaf of N.Y. Times bread with more chopped fresh rosemary.

cooking up some country ribs to have with broccoli rabe and potato salad.

a green salad for some balance, and vanilla ice cream (homemade) for dessert.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
