We ended up having burritos. I had some hamburger already browned and frozen. Nuked it and added a can of corn, can of black beans and a can of Rotel. We added cheese, sour cream and lettuce and wrapped it all up in a flour tortilla. Got the protein, starch. dairy and veggies all in one.

I made enchiladas tonight. We also had spice cake that our friend made. She sent some home with us after eating at her house last night.

We decided that the best way to keep the house cool was to go to McDonald's. LOL I ended my meal with a Rolo McFlurry. Good and cold!

wow, rock. just wow! that's my kind of b-day dinner.

i had another productive day despite the heat. got the pool cleaned, added diatomaceous earth to the filter to trap the fine particulates, got the garden weeded, and watered the lawn letting the little heathens next door run through the sprinkler with my boy.

i'm just now picking up dinner: 3 all the way (hot dogs with onions, mustard, smotheted in texas weiner sauce), a side o fries, and a large salad.

it's crap, but i think i deserve it. i guess pacanis's hot dogs were in the back of my mind all day as i weeded.

it's odd, but new jersey is the only place i've seen texas weiner sauce.

I think I could eat the dinner we had tonight all summer long. Macaroni salad with albacore tuna and fresh fruit.
That looks like my kind of summer meal too, mama!

I forgot to say

Happy Birthday, Rock!!

Tonight, I made simple salads with just sliced chicken tenders on top with warm rolls. Definitely, nothing fancy, but it tasted good!
