I did some running around for my mother and when we returned she put a frozen pizza in the oven. I didn't really want it but I couldn't say no to her offer so I ate some. It doesn't taste bad going down but then it just sits there like a brick....

I wasn't going to eat big last night anyway, but when the power went out it made it easy to throw a couple hot dogs on the grill and grab some leftover chicken wings out of the fridge.

After all the lamb talk over Easter, I finally got my lamb fix yesterday. I picked up some nice little rib chops and grilled them. Seasoned them first with a little fresh garlic rub, kosher salt, cracked pepper, and added a sprig of rosemary to the hot coals. They were absolutely delightful! Greek salad and garlic bread on the side.

I meant to post the pic last night, but I fell asleep early.

Noodle Salad

1 lb bucatini

1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil

1/3 cup rice vinegar

1/3 cup soy sauce

juice from one lime

zest of one lime

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

1 cup finely grated carrot

1/4 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup chopped green onion

In a large pot, cook bucatini according to package directions. Drain, rinse noodles with cold water, and set aside.
Pour into a large bowl the sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and lime juice. Mix in lime zest, brown sugar, garlic, and red pepper flakes; stir until sugar dissolves. Toss in carrots, peanuts, green onion and cilantro.
Add bucatini to dressing and toss to coat all noodles. There should be very little to no dressing left after tossing. Cover, and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Toss salad again before serving. If dry, splash with soy sauce and vinegar. Serve cold.

Thanks so much, all. After all the years I've been grilling, I still second guess myself. It would have been so disappointing to cut into those spendy beauties and find I'd overcooked them. I was pleased.
