I'm planning to whip up an omelet stuffed with truffle cheese and sauteed mushrooms. I'll probably have a salad with it.

I'm nuking some potatoes I dug this morning, to be mixed with some Spanish rice and some cheese sauce I made for DH's lunch box. Have no idea what it will taste like.

I picked 5 tomatoes from my lone tomato plant this morning. The neighbor gave me some cucumbers and I picked up some lettuce at the framers market. I found 2 small flat iron steaks in the freezer that needed to be cooked. They were pan grilled and sliced on top of the lettuce with diced eggs, tomatoes and cucumbers for salads. DH had his with ranch and I had blue cheese. I made some cucumbers and onions yesterday so DH had a big bowl of them with his salad and then we had some sliced peaches with whipped cream for dessert.

Great sounding dinners all, as usual!

I had grilled Surf 'N Cluck this afternoon. Had some defrosted chicken thighs that needed to be cooked, and when I went to the grocery store yesterday they had such lovely shrimp that was calling to me. I kept a few shrimp out and froze the rest. Figured I may as well make the most of the coals and have some of the best of both worlds.

Chicken was rubbed with garlic, onion powder, s and p, a little Penzeys BBQ 3000, and brushed with a light coating of BBQ sauce during the last of the grilling. Shrimp was marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley and Old Bay, for an hour or so. Salad with ranch to round it out. It was delish, and I'm still stuffed.

What's cookin good lookin? Wed. 8/3/16

Surf N Cluck!

DH went to a little out of town dive with some of his buds that serves wings on Wednesday. He brought me home a bunch, and the butter packet had melted with the heat in the container. I dumped a bunch of Frank's Red Hot in, and voila! Instant Buffalo wings that I didn't have to cook! And hash browns!

Tonight was easy, chicken noodle soup with egg salad sandwiches. For dessert we had a very ripe muskmelon.

K-Girl, looks like your red potatoes faded. Dinner still looks good.

Surf & Cluck is cute, Cheryl! And !

s&p, delicious looking as always.

Himself did a wonderful job grilling the tenderloin. Pretty in Pink! We also had a pineapple fragrancing up the corner of my counter, so off half of it went to the grill. All "yum".

You also brought homemade corn-tomato-pepper relish from home, so we had some of that with the pork chops. Good stuff
