We ended up having hot dogs and potato salad Friday night, so yesterday I made the marinated pork kebabs with tzatziki sauce and pita bread that I had planned. The zucchini are from our garden.

Is that lemon on the end of the stick GG? What a good idea if it is.

It is. I got that tip from Cooks Illustrated and a friend reminded me of it last weekend when we had dinner at her house. The lemon softens and the sugars caramelize, so it gets juicy and sweet. It's really good.

Ah yes, you call chips french fries. French fries tend to be a slimmer version of a chip though - chips being shorter and a bit fatter.

Cos lettuce is darker green than most lettuces, long and very crisp. I expect you have it in US under a different name? They go well in caesar salad.

It's called "Romaine lettuce" on the left side of the pond.

They're more like our steak fries: http://www.roastersntoasters.com/ima...s/DSC_0174.jpg

Chips here are generally potato chips - very thinly sliced and fried,

Been looking up bobèche, and that's not quite what that foil is trying to be. When I lived in Denmark, it was standard to put a foil liner inside the candle stick, often with a bobèche. It keeps the candle from getting stuck in the candlestick. They usually look like a tiny muffin liner, but foil. So, I discovered there are foil muffin liners. I betcha that would look better. Another thing to add to the shopping list.
