Good morning .. We'll hit the upper 90's today .. Just too hot to do anything .. especially cook anything elaborate.

Dinner tonight will be a no-cook summer pasta sauce made with home-grown tomatoes, basil, 1 crushed garlic clove, a little crushed pepper flakes, and lots of extra virgin olive oil. Let sit all day and then toss in cooked pasta .. spaghetti for us .. add parmesan cheese and enjoy. We look forward to home-grown tomatoes every year just to make this "sauce".

Enjoy the day and stay cool!

I now have a plan for the chicken, I'll make sticky legs and thighs in the oven and I've cooked some pumpkin but I have no idea what else :(
Maybe do something with the leftover spiced lentil rice from last night but I'm not sure what!

The meatballs are thawed so I'm going to attempt moink balls tonight. It will be my first time smoking with the gas grill (first time smoking anything!) It'll be interesting to see how it goes. I have slaw left from last night to go with.

Heading over to a friends house for bbq. They want us to bring our own meat, so I am going to make it easy by thawing a few boneless chicken breasts and punding them out. Give them a quick grill and eat them on a kaiser with lettuce, tomato and some ranch dressing. Going to bring along the obligatory pasta salad like good little guests....

Finally figured out to do with the leftovers! Made a cheesy rice bake with the leftover spiced lentil rice and chopped veggies. Crispy grilled chicken and cinnamon sugar pumkin.
Yay :)

Thanks :) Hold thumbs, the cheesy bake is in the oven now. Hope it tastes ok, not that anything smothered in cheese can be bad..lol!
The pumpkin is good and the chicken will be but the rice bake is a first for me!

lol, yeah, you can't go wrong smothering food in cheese :^D

I'm thinking of doing that tenderloin tonight. Last night I started munching instead of cooking and ended up heating some ribs to round out my grazing. I definitely want to cook that pork tenderloin up.
