Very warm here. Whew! I picked up a couple of rib eyes to grill along with mashed potatoes, iceburg wedge with blue cheese and tomato, fresh bread, ripe cheese and dessert is a raspberry jelly roll (yes I bought it) Of course a bottle or two of red.

First, we watch the Belmont Stakes and route for Big Brown...while drinking mojitos. Lou makes a great mojito.

First course is blueberries and orange segments with ricotta salada cheese (it's a firm ricotta cheese that can be sliced, very mild flavour), roasted shallots served over arugula from the garden. I'll make a dressing of honey, mustard, oil and poppy seeds.

Dinner is gemelli pasta with bay scallops, fresh peas, pancetta, butter, wine and a small amount of heavy cream.

Homemade chocolate waffles and frozen strawberry yogurt for dessert.

Ditto on wanting to know more about the garlic mash and sweetcorn sauce.

No idea what I'm having yet. I had a couple cold chicken thighs for a snack a couple hours ago. I grilled them last night. I may grill the other pack of thighs again tonight, but I really have a taste for steak, I just don't feel like driving to the store to get one. Maybe a ride to the store on the bike is in store if the weather opens up again.
Too early to decide.
