Have a massive head of cauliflower, and I've been seeing lots of ideas for Buffalo cauliflower. My expired bottle of Franks Redhot needed to be used and is melding with the butter, we have Ranch dressing and celery, and I will roast the cauli. Doing a take on Rachel Ray's recipe. And leftover chicken salad.

We were going to have big salads and quick naan pizzas done in the toaster oven. Then Himself took a ride to the corn farm on his way home from an appointment. Have to punt my way into a different supper plan. I love that guy, right?

We'll be having hot dogs and corn on the grill (corn needs to soak - I stopped shopping at that farm a couple years back since their corn isn't even as fresh as the grocery store's some days...). I'll also open a can of beans to heat. No buns since this is not a planned meal. I'll just open a bigger can of beans.

Got a chicken brining in salt and brown sugar, gonna stuff it with lemons and limes, salt and pepper it, and oven roast it.

Eat the breast meat tonight with summer squash from the CSA and fingerling potatoes, both browned up in the roasting juice.

The rest of the chicken I'll cut up to make a chicken pot pie tomorrow.
sourdough isn't a recipe, it is a process.

Lamb chops and a basket of marinated veggies on the grill.

Checking the Tupperware after the weekend. A spoonful of potato salad, frying a few diced potatoes with 2 spare ribs alongside and 3 cold chicken wings.

Baked macaroni and cheese, with asparagus for a side. I've been craving mac and cheese lately and it'll give me a good opportunity to use up some odds and ends in the cheese drawer. Sharp cheddar, Monterey jack, smoked gouda, and a little parm.
