I tossed some herbs/ lemon/ garlic marinated chicken parts on the char-coaler. Made extra pieces for tomorrow. I think this is pretty much my current modis operandi -- Make ahead. I also have an abundance of produce, both garden and from the market, so I made a huge cuke/ tomato/cold green beans/ lettuce/ onion/ salad. I made the best salad dressing the other day. Wish I shoulda wrote down the proportions. ( How many times has someone said that line!?! )

OK, so we decided on linguini alfredo with asparagus and chicken on top. There will be wine and chocolate brownies with ice cream for dessert.

working another double shift +1 tonight, so dinner will be takeout in the city.

i just cruised by a bbq joint on 46th and 11th, but when i took a look at their prices, i was astounded. a full rack of ribs, no sides, for $32??? a half chicken, no sides, for $11??? a single beef rib, again no sides, for $31??

they've got to be kidding. ok, so they've been rated #1bbq (in nyc) in zagats for the past 4 years, but aparrently they've been smoking the good stuff.

for those prices, i should have the food fed to me by bikini chicks while another waves a palm frond to keep me cool.

oh yeah, a single 8 lb. pork shoulder plus 4 sides is $150... lol.

pass it here, dude.

ok, so my dinner is up in the air. should i get takeout chinese, italian, thai, or jewish diner?

i'm tempted to drive all the way down to the lower east side to katz's deli.

what should i get?

Just grilling hot dogs tonight, then we are off to the movies. I haven't gone to a movie in a theater in years.

get out your wallet, chopper. movies have become ridiculousky expensive. the last time the three of us went to a movie, it was more then $60. just for tickets, a shared large soda, and a shared medium popcorn and nachos.

unfortunately, i'm not.

i'll post a pic of the takeout menu in a little while.

they have special platters, but that means a half order of (a half rack, a half chicken, small brisket, small pulled pork) plus two sides, 6 ozs. each, for around $17.

forget the halal carts and kosher hot dog carts in nyc (funny, the similarity when juxtaposed) but nyc is starving for good bbq pork!!,

anyone want to make a name here? start a pork bbq cart. you might be able to use the parks on the west side to do your smoking since grills are allowed. so much smoke wouldn't be in tight, residential streets.
