We summered in Ontario when I was a kid, the Saskatoons grew all over, along with wild blueberries later in the season. Yum!

I have no idea what we're having. Will have to cruise the freezer, perhaps grilled swai with ginger cilantro sauce. It finally stopped raining, for now.

For a late lunch for the kids I am making egg salad sandwiches on a home made whole wheat french loaf, with potato wedges. I think dinner is going to be out tonight as this is the last night that my Mother will be in town. I did offer to cook salmon anyway she wants but my kids want to go out with their Grandma.

Two things make every meal better. Pork Fat and Carbonation. It's that simple.

We went out for lunch after church so it will be a light supper here. I gave DH a choice of wings or hot dogs and he chose dogs. I'll heat up some chili sauce for them, have some baked beans and homemade coleslaw. I'll also be making some rice this evening for tomorrow's stir fry.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm going with Thai Curry again. This time, I'm making basmati rice and I'm going to use coconut oil to saute the veggies. Might add some coconut milk and sprinkle some toasted coconut on top...DH had to run to get more plumbing stuff (day 5 of the well repair...), and he picked up some more fresh okra. I will swap zucchini for the eggplant, maybe add some oyster mushrooms (dehydrated--need to rehydrate them).

Hi everyone .. dinner tonight will be stir-fry chicken and broccoli served over rice. Homemade peach pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream will be dessert.

Katie, is there anything special to freeze the corn-on-the-cob or just shuck, freeze and bag/wrap?

We had chicken leg quarters on the grill and salads. Spent the day shopping for benches and cushions for the back yard and I wasn't in the mood to cook anything too complicated.
Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

I tried to freeze corn on the cob before. Someone on the internet kept saying it comes out pretty close to the fresh product. It didn't.

Maybe Katie blanches hers first? I'd love to hear how she does it, also. I must have been missing something, but then I left mine in the husk because that is how I always grill it.

I did half cajun and half BBQ, which is basically just sauced (SBR vidalia hickory). The cajun wings got the nod. I'll be making those again next time.
I better grab some banana walnut ice cream with Hershey's syrup to round things out
