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

I can't believe it.

We're having Andrew Zimmern's porchetta with caramelized onions and gruyere cheese sliders, with his recipe for roasted vegetable mayo. Just made the mayo. Craig roasted the onion, garlic, tomato, red bell drizzled in EVOO and sprinkled with S and P in a foil packet on the grill yesterday while he was grilling the chicken. Added the lime juice and cilantro, zapped in the food processor, then added in the store-bought mayo. My oh my is it good even freshly made, can't wait to taste after it has melded for a bit.

Half over? Well, that's one way to view it.

Our day is a day of celebration...Glenn's birthday.

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.

Happy birthday to Glenn! 🎂

Steak, shrimp, cake and ice cream! Sounds great to me! Enjoy!

I think I'm going to thaw some ground beef and grill some burgers. Probably will make a salad for the side.

Doing brats, potato salad, and a green veggie. Not sure what yet. Something my mom can eat with her fingers...probably asparagus or broccoli.

Easy dinner night. This seems simple enough.

I'll have to sub the regular Italian Sausage for Hot Chicken Swiss Sausage.
Should work. Though these days I think everything need bacon bits in it.

Grilling some wings. A veggie will also be prepared so we don't aggravate the spirits of healthy eating.

Slight change of plans. DH came home with some fresh corn on the cob and I have roasted garden-fresh Anaheim and jalapeño peppers, so I decided to make Bobby Flay's Green Chile Cheeseburgers from a Throwdown episode and Mexican street corn - corn coated with a mayo-lime-chile powder mixture.

It just started pouring down rain, so we'll be cooking indoors tonight

The glass is half full! Happy birthday to Katie's DH, Glenn!

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

I really like the sound of that recipe Munky. I think I can adapt my portion to low carb with no pasta and on a bed of cooked kale. Maybe tomorrow.

I'm doing the larger part of a tri tip on the barby, and a baked spud will make a little loaded casserole for the SC, and I can have the loaded baked skins...yummm.
