Sunday 7/12/15

Andy sez it's Sunday, so here goes!

Today is the day. For two years I have been hearing that DH is pretty good with a grill, so he is grilling/cooking dinner today. We went shopping yesterday and came home with 2 buffalo rib eye steaks (after procuring a small loan from the bank) and some shitake mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, asparagus, and fresh green beans, to be supplemented with onions and a zucchini from the garden. Not sure what he is doing with that medley of veggies. And I dug out first potatoes yesterday and he will make some home fries. I may make a small salad from the garden, if I feel like it.

I am so excited!!!

What's happening at your place?

And I'm excited for you Beth! No matter what happens, praise him all over the place, but you already know that.

We're going to a birthday party for my son and his wife. They were born on the same day, 10 years apart. I think that's so cool that on Bradey's 10th birthday, his future bride was born. She's a great wife and mother to baby Cheyenne. What a blessing they both are.
Anyway, I'm taking my cole slaw to the potluck cookout.

Simple but very tasty - Roast guinea fowl, baked potato and organic cauliflower. (I always turn the bird upside down initially so as to crisp up the underside and this also allows the juices to penetrate the breast meat).

Hot and humid today so I think tuna sandwiches and salad of one type or another.

Ditto on the hot and humid!

I have the fixings for a loaded salad and a pitcher of iced tea chilling in the fridge.

We're on our way to Oak Island, NC, for a week with my family. My mom is getting Carolina barbecue and cole slaw for tonight's dinner. I'm bringing fresh garden tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers and zucchini, so we will make a platter of sliced veggies.

We are having date night, so we're going to Baton Rouge (restaurant, not city).

Nice S&P!

Okay, here's what happened. At first I was nervous; note first photo.

Then things improved. DH cooked a fantastic meal and even helped with the cleanup. The meal was divine. I didn't make the salad!
