We're having leftover ribs from last night, and jazzed up mac and cheese with added salsa. Steamed broccolini will green up the meal.

We made two wine-butt chickens on the grill, then DH grilled corn and sliced zucchini for sides.

One of my neighbors died of cancer last week; he was only 58. Tomorrow I'm taking one of the chickens, potato salad and zucchini-tomato salad to his family.

That's so considerate of you. A friend of mine said that the food people brought was pretty much the most helpful thing anyone did when she had to deal with her father's funeral and estate.

We were going to grill burgers, but it has been raining all day and it's chilly. The loaded salad I had planned as backup had no appeal, because we wanted warm food. We went to Mckibbins Irish pub. I had bangers and mash and Stirling had a bison burger. Both meals were tasty and filling and warm.

TB had some of last night's grilled salmon and I just had a cranberry oatmeal muffin as I am in a pretty rough pain flare today. The chicken wings will be held over until tomorrow!

DH's favorite -- breakfast dinner. Poached eggs on toast, sausage links, and cantaloup.

Day Two of cold and rain. Thankfully, I had a rotisserie chicken in the fridge. I made the intended chicken salad with some of the breast meat, and a nice pot of chicken veggie soup with the rest of the white and all of the dark meat. So good and warming. It danged well better warm up tomorrow because Himself will be sent out to grill the shrimp and scallops no matter what!

I bet you could put his version in a small casserole dish with the kraut, put your better-version ones in a second casserole with tomatoes, and you could both enjoy YOUR way! A nice pile of mashed taters would be good under either of those...

Sorry to hear this. It seems like you have a close-knit neighborhood, so it must feel a little like losing a distant relative. I've always thought the food thing was a great idea. Like a hug to the family.

It seems a rash of youngster are dying. A close friend of our son just passed away within the past week. 45. Melanoma. Then, in my FB newsfeed, a friend from back home posted an article about the older brother of our son's grade school friend died in a multi-car accident on his way home. He was only 36. ALL of them seem too young to go...

Actually. . . Heh, I ended up just making a whole bunch for him and made myself more of those pork schnitzel meatballs, because they were good. Now he's got lunches for a few days, and so do I. Win-win.

I ate some of the meatballs for lunch, and while he had cabbage rolls for dinner, I had a really nice rib eye a butcher friend dropped off at the house in payment for something my husband did for him. (I love it. My vegetarian husband gets paid in steaks.)

Yes, the neighborhood is pretty close. We were both on the civic league board at the same time we've been to lots of neighborhood parties over the years. He was a sweet, wonderful man. He and his wife were foster parents and adopted 6 children. Plus, she was in the hospital for several days right after his death. I want to help her out.
