My 9 year old grandson is here for the weekend so we had his favorite meal. Mashed potatoes, pork chops, gravy and green beans. He ate so much he didn't have room for dessert. All during the meal he kept saying, thanks grandma for cooking this for me.

Mayo? That's a new one, to me. Thanks for the grilling tip, Andy.
I might take a drive tomorrow to one of the better grocery stores and look for some.

That makes you feel good, doesn't it!!

My 4 YO grandson loves my pasta with tomato sauce. He just shovels it in saying, "This is sooo good, this is sooo good!". There is no higher praise.

I made a nice sirloin steak on the new grill as the first dinner (sorry no pics but it was goooood).

I also learned that this grill gets HOT! I preheated it for 30 minutes with all 4 burners on High to burn off the oils and stuff and when I opened the lid the heat that came out singed the hair on my arm.

I could have told you not to do that
Amazing the heat four burners can generate. That will be a learning curve. I don't cook anything on four burners on high. It seems to be double the heat of a three burner.

Tonight I am on my own - well, just me and the Vancouver Canucks. Hopefully they are having the Bruins for dinner (my apologies to GB, Andy M and any other New Englander and/or Boston fan). I have no clue as I said in the dinner thread.

Tomorrow DH and I are taking the Dogs up to see Dad at his rehab centre and are hoping to take him outside for a picnic dinner if he is up to it. I have to plan a meal that is gluten/lactose/soy free for DH and diabetes safe and easily pureed for Dad! Good practice for the summer picnic challenge, eh Dave?

The spicy chicken is super spicy though and my kids cant/wont eat it lol I cried eating it last time b/c it was so hot! But GOOD!

I want to bake some brownies, but cant until the maintance man comes and puts a new heating element in the oven
Amanda could I possibly have the recipe for your spicy chicken? DH loves spicy foods. He always tells me it's not spicy enough! Normally when I can barely eat it to begin with. So this would be perfect for him.

GW had a hot sauce called, "Liquid Stupid." Make the meal your way and hand a bottle of that to him to season his own dish.
