Thursday, 8/3/2017, are you grillin and chillin?

We will be. Ground lamb mixed with various spices/herbs, formed into kebobs, then grilled. Tzatziki on the side. Maybe Greek potatoes depending on how hungry Craig is. Saganaki as an appy.

We certainly aren't "Chillin'" here. It is currently 19 Celsius with a chance for a high of 29. We have a smoke cloud overhead which actually makes it feel hotter, not to mention tough to breathe.

TB doesn't want to add any more smoke for me so we won't be grillin' either. I have some cooked taco meat in the freezer so will heat that up in the microwave and chop up all the fixings.

In other words, it is taco Thursday!

Not sure at the moment.

I have an appointment with an allergy doctor. My head and ears are so stuffed up. My head is pounding from sinus pressure. Skin under my eyes and my eye lids are red and swollen. My eyes themselves and the surrounding skin burns like fire. So I called closest allergist and got me in today. I thought I had a summer cold till my eyes went crazy.

Those would be chillin termperatures for us considering it doesn't get a whole lot lower here in the dead of night right now than your daytime high.

I think I'll be grilling chicken thighs and steaming broccoli for dinner tonight.

Ouch! And I believe it is more humid where you are. We really aren't used to it being this hot this long. And with all the fires we are almost begging for the usual summer rains that we complain about!

Jeannie had to order eyeglasses at Costco so, we dropped into her fave Chinese joint..

Veggies in a clear broth, pork chow mein, fried rice, small salad and fried wontons with a sweet and sour sauce.. $5.45... Drink extra... Good food, good value..

I set out brioche slices to dry so, I'll put together bread pudding for later...

I don't fire up the grill when it is this hot and dry. Too hot for one thing, but also our porch is low and covered and we are surrounded by dry grass and brush.

We'll probably be doing a salad of some kind.

I'm going on vacation tomorrow, so tonight means either eating or tossing leftovers.
