I LOVE squid luau to but I have squid anxiety.
I just don't know how to go about cleaning and so forth. One of these days I will have to get over it.

I'm going to be making your outstanding Gyro's for dinner tonight.
Ohhh.... I wish I had seen your post before I started dinner. I just kind of winged it, but it came out good. Lots of cheese. Lots of bacon.

Glad you enjoy the gyros. I was thinking of having those Thursday.

Great, but did Mrs. K approve?

She did. Mrs. K approves of most anything with cheese and bacon.

The chicken turned out delicious. I used Yakuta's recipe, Tandoori Chicken, but I left out the mint and cilantro. We don't like either.

Edit: I left out the red food colouring too.

Steve, everything is better with bacon. Those shrimp 'n grits look good.

K-girl, you and mmyap need to coordinate a banana leaf shipment from HI to AZ!

Nice char on the chicken taxy!

Our dinner was ho-hum. I did food running around, was running late, and grabbed a rising dough frozen pizza from the case at Aldis to see if it was edible. I also wanted to try out the "Frozen Pizza Seasoning" that was a freebie on a recent Penzeys outing. I did add some extra toppings, but not much at all. Surprisingly, it was pretty good! Even without the extra toppings it certainly was worth every $3.29 I spent! Certainly not going to be something I plan on buying, but if I'm in a pinch for time and my last stop is Aldis I'd go ahead and get it again.

No real meal tonight. I've felt crappy all day and had no appetite. SO had lunch with two girl friends at Bahama Breeze and brought home some leftovers. Around 8:30 tonight munched on those leftovers and had some milk and cookies.

Hope you feel better tomorrow Andy. The weather is too nice right now to be out of commission.

Thanks, CG. I'm sure I'll be fine.

I had planned on Italian sausages with sautéed onions. Seasoned rice for a side. I had the tomatoes already sliced along with the cucumbers. I was going to serve them with rice vinegar and olive oil. I took out the rice vinegar from the back of my cabinet and it had turned dark brown. Can anyone tell me what happened to it? I am very leery of using it. It is just sitting on the counter waiting for an answer.

I fell asleep and never got supper made. Oh well, there is always tomorrow!
