I'm one who doesn't think that is one of Geico's better commercials... but it fits the day.
I'm hungry for some chicken. Maybe I'll get a whole bird and stand it up on the grill.

I've always been cautious about putting high water content veggies like eggplant and zucchini, green peppers etc on a pizza because the excess moisture can make the pizza soggy.

Do you do anything to prevent that?

I grill the first and blot them dry.

Today is my son-in-law's birthday and I've been asked to do some BBQ'ing. 11 racks of St. Louis spares, and a batch of chicken hot wings and thigh fillets.
Yeah, we're expecting a bunch of people this evening....:)

I too love that commercial. The one I can't mute fast enough is the talking dog on the canned Bushs' bean commercial.

Pot luck tonight, I'm taking roasted red potatoes I bought at the farmers' market, ones I thought were red skinned potatoes. Turns out the whole bloody potato is red. Other known contributions are baked chicken, various salads, honey cornbread. An apricot tree whisperer has been invited and he is bringing an apricot dessert. He will bring info on freeze resistant apricot trees he is developing. The community may plant some. I am not interested. Of all the fruit trees I have planted throughout my life, the yield has been dismal. This area is great for fruit production and I intent to reward others' efforts.

It's hot (again), humidity is high, so I'm going with a refreshing bowl of iced Cucumber and Dill Soup.

I stopped by my favorite Chinese takeout restaurant and got some won ton soup, minus the won tons. So a nice flavorful broth tonight, along with the wine.
