Tonight we're having pesto, red bell pepper, mushroom, onion, diced pancetta and cheese pizza.
OK. First, it was delicious! I plated and then found my camera battery was dead. So here's a cell phone photo. It's a little out of focus.

It looks like we have at least another week of top notch grilling weather before the inevitable Autumn cool down begins, so I am taking advantage.

Tonight's fare: grilled game hens with red pepper jelly and smoked balsamic glaze, Spanish rice, and heirloom tomaters from my garden. These are old German yellow and sweet Carneros pink... two of my favorites.

wow, andy. those chops are beauts! they're so meaty. i've been passing by the lamb i've seen in the stores here because they're just a thin strip of meat on the bone. and then they're often frenched so even the tasty fat is gone.

nice job.


i grilled some chicken breasts in my turkish rub, and made yukon gold mashed and grape tomato salad for dw and my boy.

i wasn't hungry then, so i'll get something on the way in to work tonight.

Tom, I got the rack at Costco. 8 ribs, about $16.50. Tomorrow's dinner will be a less expensive menu.

We just picked up this year's 4H lamb. Thinking I need to thaw some chops....

Pork steaks baked in sauerkraut and browned onions and the last fresh corn from the u-pick. Our strawberries are going crazy so it's berries and vanilla Haagen-Dazs for dessert.

We had barbecued lamb ribs, steamed cut spinach, hash browns, iced tea and fresh raspberry cake.

thanks, andy. i can't wait for a nearby costco to finish being built so we can join again.

there's a few we can go to now but the parking and traffic getting to and from is insane. the new one will just be 5 minutes from my house next to a small airport, so the traffic and parking should be reasonable.

should be.

and $16.50 isn't bad. i'm about to pay that for a chicago burger (back bacon, swiss, sauteed mushrooms and onions, lettuce and tomato on the boigah) and fries.

Interesting. What exactly makes that a Chicago Burger?

i have no idea.

i asked the waiter that once, and he just did that indecisive head wiggle thing that indians do (south asia indians).

at least i can understand why they call a mozzarella cheese steak on garlic bread a balboa, as in rocky. from philly.
