Since tomorrow is "cooking for the food photographer day," I had celery sticks dipped in greek yogurt with this spice blend I got at the African cash and carry--lemon, salt, lime, pepper, hot pepper, don't know what else is in it, but I'm addicted to it.

I went to a talk at the library about using edible flowers in cooking, so I made an easy dinner. BLTs with maque choux (sautéed onions, bell peppers and corn seasoned with salt, pepper and cayenne, finished with butter). I also sliced up a half cucumber that was getting old and put it in a jar of pickling liquid from pickled banana peppers, and had a few of those. Yummy.

Went to the local farmer's market and picked up locally grown Blue Lake Green Beans, OH MY GAWD!! Delicious! We both commented that neither of us had ever had green beans that tasted so unreal!! I gave them a quick blanch, that's it.
I served b/s chicken thighs that I marinated in Huli Huli sauce and broiled (we can't BBQ here in the apartment) and a green salad, again locally grown veggies.
WAY ONO!!

Made some pitta bread.

Came out a bit flat, I think the yeast was too old.











The pitta breads went with the Whole Baked Mullet Turkish-style.












Dessert was Eton Mess.

Philly beef and Swiss flatbread sandwiches, lightly toasted on the grill, and pineapple, kiwi, cantaloupe and strawberry kabobs.

For dessert, we had those sugar-free banana freezer pops. Burp.

Lots of good looking meal here.

I set out a buffet of cheeses, charcuterie, and fruits. The wine is there just in case I needed to drink my way through the NBA game tonight. So far the cork is still in the bottle. Come on Cavs!

Been on the phone all evening with my daughters, so ended up having to scrap the taco or fajita plan. Breakfast for dinner again! Pretty yummy.

I tried another "Clean Eating" recipe, Lettuce wraps! They were really good. I substituted ground turkey for the ground chicken it called for and put the green onions and water chestnuts in right at the end so they were nice and crunchy still, but we both really enjoyed it.
