Whatcha got cookin' July 21?

I dug the first potatoes from the garden, have celery, onion, carrots, beans, kohlrabi, zucchini, and broccoli. Oh, and bok choy up the ying-yang.

I'm making my version of this:

Kikuchan's Potato-Crab Salad Recipe - Allrecipes.com

It will be a meal-by-itself and will be served on a bed of red lettuce (also from the garden).

Another very hot day. Going to do my take on an Ina Garten recipe...

Lemon pasta (w/ garlic & evoo) w/ roasted shrimp & broccoli & parmesan cheese.

I like the way the shrimp & broccoli were roasted together, but since it's so hot, will grill the shrimp & broccoli on the indoor grill.

Avocado & tomato salad
Garlic bread
chablis

Dessert - undecided.

Pasta with Shrimp Recipes from Ina Garten - Barefoot Contessa Pasta - House Beautiful

Made a batch of jerk marinade. Got some chicken and some hot dogs (for the Hot Dog Challenge) layin' in it. Gonna fire up the fire pit a bit later. I hear it rumblin' and grumblin' outside off to the south, but rain ain't never stopped me from gettin' supper done!

Oh yeah, almost forgot...Rice and peas, tossed salad, and a glass of Blenheim's Hot Ginger Ale with a bourbon chaser.

Nice, Harry. That would go well with my hangover.
I am making pizza dough with my new food processor that arrived today. Yay!
Pizza and a few bottles of the ol' Hair of the Dog pilsner...
