It's a perfectly dark and dreary day...listening to the rain. It sounds wonderful.

First course is fresh apricots stuffed with goat cheese, a chunk of comb honey and walnuts, served on arugula from the garden. I'll probably make a balsamic glaze from the orange balsamic vinegar.

Dinner is chicken and soft shell crabs, picatta style, served with gnocchi and oven roasted carrots.

Dessert is a chocolate cake roll with raspberries and cream cheese mousse. That is crying out for port.

I believe the cocktail of the evening is Sazeracs. I'm unsure what the wine is, Lou hasn't picked a bottle yet.

....oooo, thunder!......

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Skip the turkey wings. I'm going to VB's for supper!

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I'm grilling rack of lamb, also going to try a new recipe for a potato/carmelized onions with goat cheese casserole and a salad. I feel like something chocolatey for dessert but I'm too lazy to make anything for dessert.

Nothing special , opened a can of white breast chicken, put in skillet, open can of cream of chicken soup, put in skillet, put cooked cauliflower in and heat it all up, stiring it. I was going to make noodles with it but changed my mind.

I'm thinkin' I want to go live Vera's glamorous life, but instead I'm here in Mexico and we're going to eat home made vanilla ice cream with fresh pineapple for dinner. We talked it over - I offered enchiladas con pierna (leg of pork) but hubby said "Can we have ice cream for dinner?" You got it, baby!

Saludos, Karen
