Looks delish!

This afternoon's dinner was an artichoke with garlic/lemon butter, and a little leftover chicken salad with wheat crackers.

It's still cloudy and chilly out there today, so he'll set up the space heater for me too.
I wish we had the room for multiple outdoor cookers but we just don't. We'd sure have them if we did. Our little V smoker filled with soaked wood chips that fits between the gas burners came in handy tonight with dinner.
I just had to eat some before taking the picture.

Kay, I would have eaten the whole thing before taking a pic, it looks luscious. You showed amazing restraint!

So retro but so good!
Just call it "a classic"...

Wonderful looking and sounding meals!

I had planned on good, ol' breakfast for supper. Himself wished we had sausage last time, so I mixed a batch of seasonings and made patties. While the meat was resting, I had a huge attack of The Clumsies. When I managed to tip my tea cup filled with hot tea inside and down my sleeve 😯 it was the last straw. Himself decided we should have Mother's Day dinner tonight. He got take-out broasted chicken and jo-jo potatoes, then nuked some corn. His cooking specialty - take-out and canned/frozen veggies! 😊 Gotta love my man. ♡

We had an afternoon tea yesterday to celebrate Mother's day. I made buttermilk scones and fresh whipped cream served with jam, a few simple desserts, and a bunch of tea sandwiches designed to please the whole family: egg salad with dijon mayo & salad greens, chicken salad on whole grain, ham & raspberry jam, peanut butter & jelly, and whole grain toasts with garlic cream cheese and homemade za'atar, inspired my my Moroccan friend.

I was obviously very full from the tea, so only had a small dinner later of a leftover French mushroom soup I made with country dumplings. It was a pretty good food day. :)

I forgot, the glaze/sauce was made from a combination of two other scratch made sauces and the key ingredient was blackberry jam. Next, I'm gonna try his recipe and method for whole shoulder, if I can find it. The whole shoulder is both what most places offer separately as shoulder and Boston butt in one piece.
