Potluck tonight at a party I am playing for. I'll let you know what was served when I get back.

Unless something really wild happens, we will be having beef stew. Finally!

As you know the last few days have been all twisted and turned around when it came to what was planned for dinner and what was actually served. James still didn't feel well enough to go to our friends' for lasagna today, so the stew (which is what I have REALLY been looking forward to) is tonight. How can I be so sure? Well, as I said, unless something really wild happens, it will be tonight because it is on the stove cooking right now!

Well... I went down to the freezer to get a package of kielbasa and found none so the planned dinner of kielbasa and mashed sweet potato is on hold. Instead well have burger bombs-burgers with Genoa salami and provolone cheese + all the fixin's.

I'm going to grill a couple small potatoes and a steak here shortly. Unless someone offers me some good dessert, then I will gladly grill them at your place.
I think I'll toss a couple clusters of snow crab legs on the grill to warm through, too.

I've seen that burger before, Andy. I'm glad you mentioned it again. On my shortlist.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I'm using leftovers for Mark to make a goulash sort of thing.
A little kindness goes a long way.

We were out at Costco...they have the Campari Tomatoes so I got some of those and a flat of strawberries.

Then we stopped and I got some fresh basil and fresh mozzerella, made myself Caprese salad. Later I'll be slicing up the strawberries, macerating them with a little sugar and use that to top some 1-2-3 cakes. Finish off the Spanish Rice while we are at it, too!

My DxW turned me onto Costco's Compari tomatoes. They taste pretty good. That is, they have Tomato Flavor. I have some sliced alongside leftover Tuna Salad and I tossed some kalamata olives in the salad today.

Chocolate Ice Cream Soda for dessert.

Throat causing me havoc again so my wonderful DH made me a fruit shake with frozen berries, banana, fresh pineapple and almond milk. I have found out I am reacting to soy to we are trying other alternatives. Cow and goat milk give me phlegm that makes my swallowing even harder - the soy was fine that way but curdles in my stomach.

Anyway, the shake was awesome!

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
