Sunday Dinner Plans for 7-10-16

If the weather holds at cloudy, I'm smoking a whole chicken over charcoal and apple wood chips while listening to the ballgame. Not sure yet what we'll have for sides.

If the weather deteriorates to precipitation, I'll be roasting a whole chicken over gas while watching the ballgame.

What are your plans for this Sunday?

I'm visiting my dad this evening in South Bay and I'll be doing yakitori out in his patio.

Daughter and SIL are coming over for dinner. Weather is too unsettled to count on the grill, so it's indoor cooking tonight. Chicken tenders, artichoke hearts, and roasted red peppers in bacon pesto cream sauce over TJ's spinach linguine, which they haven't had before. I picked up a few slices of applewood smoked bacon at the butcher counter, which should give it some extra flavor. Green salads on the side, along with some roasted garlic and olive oil bread.

I'm not entirely sure what my dinner plans are yet. I'm going to our wine club picnic potluck this afternoon. If there are things I can eat, I'll eat there. Otherwise, I have a backup steak in the fridge.

I had a half BLT and could only eat half of that. Left the bread behind along with the lettuce.

We chauffeured our granddog, Baxter, to his home yesterday and were gifted by Glenn's son, Kenneth, with two grocery bags full of all sorts of fresh veggies from his overflowing garden. He also gave us a big package of brats. I'd already had last night's meal taken care of, so tonight we tackled at bunch of he goodies we received.

I made wilted (vinegar, oil, seasonings) cucumbers, sauteed yellow squash with red bell peppers and chives, and the brats, which were so good we ate the whole package. I had three helpings of the cukes they were so fresh and good. Love this time of the year. I could almost be a vegetarian. Not.

I was able to squeeze in smoking the chicken but it meant sitting out in a drizzling environment for a while. It came out pretty good.

Nice looking meals there, Rock and Andy!

I ended up having pork loin roast and coleslaw at the wine club picnic.

I may or may not have had a little wine, too.

Craig made muffin cup chicken from Myron Mixon on the BGE. Sides were mac and cheese finished on the Weber, didn't want to turn the oven on, and maque choux with mirliton and corn.
