Our grandson is staying with us for a couple of days. SO asked him if he'd like to go to Burger King for dinner tonight but I whispered "pizza!" in his ear. Like a good grandson he opted for pizza over BK. So we shared a pepperoni pizza for dinner. Atta boy!

Evil Grampy!

I had to make some Mexican rice after all the talk, along with leftover corn salad.

We just had to have BLTs again. The tomato plants are producing way beyond our expectations and I made a super-perfect loaf of rustic bread this weekend. Both great components of said sandwiches. Had bacon and romaine hearts on hand so....

Did the Griddler trick with the bacon again but, this time, I used the ridged grill plates. Worked perfectly this way, too. I'm sold. As far as I'm concerned, whenever bacon is to be cooked for a sandwich, weaving it lattice-style and cooking it on the Griddler is the best way to do it.

Since our one cucumber vine is trying to envelope the house, we had cucumber spears with our sandwiches. Iced tea to drink and more of the pina colada cake with whipped cream for dessert.

Just for fun, have a look at the bacon and check out the pretty tomato. And, trust me, the tomato tasted just as good as it looks.

Yum! Did you make that?


Home made Mexican chorizo with sauteed onions, mini peppers, mushrooms, garlic in an omelet topped with guacamole. It was great!

I made fried rice. Stirling went out for supper with a friend on Friday, so I had steak. Well, I accidentally defrosted two steaks, so I cooked them both and saved one for making the fried rice. It was really good. It had the steak cut into strips, onion, carrot, celery, napa cabbage, garlic, scallions, water chestnuts, palm heart (boring), corn niblets, and brown basmati rice. I fried it in sesame oil and seasoned with cumin, a couple of dried chilies, oyster sauce, tamari, fish sauce, and sesame seeds. Next time, I will cut back on the fish sauce and tamari. The fish sauce, tamari, and oyster sauce all have a lot of salt.

Lots of good looking plates tonight!

The burger thread made me hungry, so we had cheeseburgers out on the deck!

I love the weave idea for BLT's and those tomatoes look perfect.
