Just hamburgers tonight. I was going to try to make some pork roast al pastor, but it needs to marinate overnight.

The year's half over! Dinner, 6/30/2016.

We will be meandering around. Not sure yet, but something will strike our fancy.

We ended up splitting lasagna at our new favorite Mexican Italian restaurant. The new guy (a chef from Italy) bought the place from a dear friend of ours, and it appears that he is doing quite well, and has become very popular. Probably doesn't hurt that he is very nice, and, um, extremely easy on the eyes.

Great sounding dinners.

I had a BLT this evening with fresh picked tomatoes, and a small potato salad on the side. Simple dinner, as I had Tyler all day and the little guy kind of wore me out.

We played mini-golf all afternoon, so no one was interested in doing anything more than ordering. I had an emergency Chili's card in my purse - it's a rare chain restaurant that we can tolerate. A couple of smoked chicken burritos for the girls, a couple of Mexican-spiced burgers for the guys, and gobs and gobs of liquids all around. I think I drank a lake worth of ice water all on my own!

When driving Goober back to his place, we stopped at Pav's Creamery for some good, old-fashioned custard made with the same kind of churning machines that some old amusement parks used back in the early 1920s. Euclid Beach Park memories...

He requested a vanilla cake with vanilla icing, which I made yesterday. Then, to gild the lily, I made the base for homemade vanilla ice cream. I have a feeling the ice cream is going to be extra yummy because it includes a portion of "vanilla sugar." Sugar that was steeped in a split and scraped vanilla bean...for a week. Shaken daily.

When I opened the jar, the vanilla fragrance was so wonderful. Can't wait to sample the ice cream.

As for the meal, he wants grilled steaks and shrimp. Nothing else. Well, something to wash the meal down, but that's always easy. He loves iced tea.

He asked for cake for breakfast. I think he's looking forward to tonight's meal. Well, at least the cake.
I am coming to your house for my next birthday.

There was quite a bit of leftover potato salad and coleslaw from the BBQ party yesterday. It was for the taking. So I brought some upstairs and every time I open the fridge, I have been taking a mouthful or two of each. Been picking all day at both of them.
