Saturday 8/19/2017 What's on the plate?

I think it will be pizza but nothing is set yet.

We are having some very dear friends over to see our new place and have dinner tonight. I am not to fuss and won't.

I have two rubs ready for some pork tenderloin that TB will grill, new potatoes, corn on the cob and our friends are bringing a salad. Dessert is fresh fruit (already prepped) and ice cream (already churned).

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

I just harvested my first ever, eggplants. I plan on making an eggplant Parmesan with real cheeses.

I thawed some shredded barbecued beef a few days ago and then DH decided he wanted pizza. So we'll have the beef on burger buns tonight, with green salad on the side.

We had grilled Cornish hen with corn on(off) the cob, and a romaine salad with a few sliced raw veggies and a fairly garlicy- lemony- Greek dressing. I put some garden mint in the dressing too. Ice tea with more lemon and mint.

I made a batch of tomato sauce today, with San Marzano tomatoes and fresh herbs and red peppers from my garden. I also browned some sweet Italian sausage and everything is simmering in a cast iron dutch oven.

Sausage sliders tonight. Plenty of sausage and sauce for pasta in a few days.
