i think i did this in other thread. but here goes. i am making pasta salad with lots of veggies in it. and using bacon ranch dressing for it. gonna make a lemon poke cakes, using a lemon cake mix, and lemon jello. it is my son's fave. frosting is instant lemon pudding and cool whip. after frosting will using fresh blueberries for the stars and raspberries to make a flag on top. might make some star shaped sugar cookies, frosted with royal icing red, white and blue for the kids. lots to do tomorrow but i love it. it will be a son's , he has a pool, and all the family will be there.

I finally decied! Yaaaaaaaaa! It will be chicken on the grill. I picked up some silver queen corn yesterday (already grilled up 4 ears for dinner last night) so we will have the rest of that, sliced tomatoes, and I'm going to make a potato salad with some of the potatoes I dug from the garden last week. Oh.. and watermellon for dessert.

my son cooked some tender beef and chicken on the grill for wrapping in fresh corn tortillas bought at a little shop he knows. they were still warm when he bought them. they are big and very thin. really, really good. all the fixins, cheese,lettuce , tomatoes, and onions. we had my salad, a green salad that my daughter brought. and the cake. we were all stuffed. enjoyed seeing the grandkids and their kids. a nice day.

Today was our down day. For dinner we had bruschetta with tomato/basil topping and shrimp on the barbie that I had marinated in a soy sauce/honey/garlic/ginger marinade that kitchenelf had posted here. Very good.

Then our neighbors brought over some tandoori shrimp they had whipped up on the fly for dinner. They were out of this world!

My nose is sunburnt/windburnt and my legs and feet are frozen from the ball tournament this weekend. If you don't like the weather wait a minute. We had blistering heat, windy but sunny, cold but sunny, raining cats and dogs, everything but lightning thank goodness.
