I'm going to break plan and roast some chicken in the oven tonight, some rice and salad on the side.

I got the new gas grill today but it is not ready to use yet, so I'll be christening it with the first meal on it tomorrow.

I picked up a skirt steak this past week. Looking forward to it, it will be my first time with that cut. Probably have later in the week, on the Smokey Joe of course

My usual ice cream is banana walnut, but I had some coconut milk to use up from last night's dinner and read that using it in ice cream was a good way to use it up. And I just couldn't ignore those ripe bananas sitting there at nose level I've got some shredded coconut I'll add, too.
Toasted almonds are on my "things I need" list, as want to make a true almond/coconut ice cream.

Crunchy potatoes?
I'm a potato fiend, what are crunchy potatoes?

Sounds like a nice simple marinade. I can almost taste it.

Have pork chops to grill and broccoli to steam. Not sure if there will be anything else. Chocolate chip cookies and ice cream bars.

Tonight's wild rice stir fry turned into Taco Wild Rice, but with chicken thigh meat and canned beef. I also added a little salsa and V8 for liquid. Very good.
