BT, those sauces are excellent. A tad pricey, but it's worth it. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT serve those to someone who accepts Kraft BBQ sauce as something that tastes good. LOL

Try the wing sauce too. I usually make half BBQ, half wing sauce wings on the barbie.

Our dear friends, Bernard and Annita, talked me into coming to their home for tonight's meal. It'll be kind of early for me since they live 30 miles away and I can't drive at night. I'll have to leave their place just before 8 to get home before it gets dark. I'll probably leave here late afternoonish. Wish we lived closer.

They're our bestest friends whom we used to spend time with and cook together, laugh and goof off. I'm bringing a loaf of N.Y. Times bread that I've added roasted garlic and chopped fresh rosemary to. Didn't want to arrive empty handed.

Other than the bread, I don't know what's on the menu. They're both fabulous cooks so I know whatever it is, it'll be good. Mention was made of cheesecake for dessert. I should probably have dessert first in that case.

Ugh...it's 249 degrees out, so all I can do is cook.

So far I made my eggplant prototype. I made some chili oil and now my nose keeps running. I just made some brats with onions and beer for lunch. I'm making fresh pasta for ravioli tomorrow.....I'm not sure what's for dinner yet.

That bread sounds good, Katie.
I'd like to attempt NYT bread again, but I can never think a day ahead of when I may want some.

oh Katie, that sounds excellent. I hope you have a wonderful time and enjoy yourself.

Just me again and I am doing a variation on last nights supper..

peaches and cream, lightly sprinkeled with vanilla sugar, and hidden under that, a fresh homemade ww brownie

and did i mention that i am making some vanilla ice cream?....that was the original purpose for the brownies

I have no earthly idea!! Dd and grands are coming here to spend the night as we leave tomorrow to spend a week in a cabin in Southern Ohio. (It's going to be bittersweet this year as it's been a family tradition for over 30 years. My uncle who started this passed away one year ago, my grandmother who passed away one month ago and my mom who has dementia and is wheelchair bound won't be there. I'm thinking this will be our last year....) Maybe we'll just order pizza and have a salad of some sort, go for a quick swim and be done with it. lol

BT, I want those sauces of yours. I'll take a thimble vial of each.
MM have a blast at your party, kiss that little one for me.
Katie, I wish I could go with you to that dinner. Your good friends and you will enjoy the day for sure, the bread was a winner of an idea. It can't be beat.
BZ, you're killing me! How good does that sound? YUMMO!
Still I have no idea what or where I'm near but will worry about that much later in the day.

All of you stay as cool as possible.
