I hope K-girl is celebrating with her new ice cream maker, though.

Tonight's dinner was marinated steak tips on the grill, roasted sweet potatoes, and a green salad.
Why yes I am!

But dinner first ...

I made Greek Seasoned Chicken BS Thighs on the grill, and since we've been talking about Macaroni aka Pasta Salad, my Italian Confetti Pasta Salad, chopped Veggie Salad for DH and Corn-off-the-cob with Kerrygold garlic & herb butter for me.

We came to the conclusion that this recipe was way too tart for our liking!

Mark and I shared a gourmet meal purchased from that famed fast french food restaurant Jacques-en-la-Boite. I have no words I can use to describe it.

I was hungry again when I got back home, so I made myself a late night sandwich: oversized hamburger bun, toasted with mayo, not butter; a slice of provolone; a generous helping of the new chicken breast from Boar’s Head - Madrasala Chicken. I topped that with some sliced mozzarella, then threw it under the broiler til the cheese melted. On the top side of the bun goes some coleslaw dressed with my own garlic and cilantro yogurt dressing. It was quite satisfying!

A note about the Boar’s Head Madrasala Chicken: It was, for the most part, quite flavorful and just a bit spicy. There was a very slight bitter taste, as if one of the spices had “bloomed” too long and burned. It would be much better as a whole bone-in skin-on chicken. I found it intriguing, but it wasn’t the tandoor flavor profile I was expecting, and hoping for. I probably won’t buy any more.

I had Hot Italian Sausage and Peppers, with onions, of course. It was as good as what I make at home. No complaints. I left with a happy belly.

OH LOOK! A Tree Grows in Brooklyn!

I had the left over salad, brought by one of my guests, from last nights dinner. Baby Spinach Salad with whole Almond, Cherry Tomatoes and various herbs.... or should I now say Wilted Baby Spinach...

Wasn't bad and it was too hot to do anyting else.
