I'm still keeping an eye peeled for the first of the Vidalias.

We just had this for dinner. It was incredible! The only sub we made was oven dried tomatoes.

Shrimp, Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Asparagus Bucatini Recipe in White Wine & Garlic Sauce

Our northern bros and sisters have some great ideas!

We went out for supper to Bofinger American BBQ Smokehouse. I had the special of the day: quarter rack of pork ribs and three chicken wings. Stirling had the Bofinger club sandwich (pulled pork, BBQed brisket, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and onion). Excellent food. Shared a decadent brownie with ice cream for dessert.

Mine didn't look like the picture. In my opinion this recipe needs some work.

A standard three-dish breading technique (flour, egg, crumbs/cheese) with finely grated cheese mixed in with the Ritz crumbs would work better. the coating did not stick well at all.

Baking in a covered dish did not promote a crispy finish. The cheese melted and ran off. I'd consider putting the properly breaded chicken on a wire rack and bake it uncovered.

The "chicken gravy" tasted like the doctored concentrated cream of chicken soup it was. I'd find an alternative.

I decided to go with the grilled Greek themed dinner.
Prepping is done.

Not quite sure. I was taking my neighbour out to celebrate her passing her safety exam, but she seems to have forgotten me. I will wait another half hour, but am getting hungry.

I have been cleaning out the fridges and freezers and we are down to a bare minimum of choices until I can go shopping tomorrow!

Give her a call, in case she did forget. She probably doesn't want to miss supper with you.

I had already called and left a message with her Mom who she is living with temporarily (she used to live on the other side of her Mom). She was only supposed to be gone for a "bit" but when I checked a few minutes ago, she had gone for a tanning session.

We hadn't set a time, but I need to get something soon and also need to go pick up dog/cat supplies before the store closes.

Had some beef leftover from the Taquitos (more in the freezer) and made some tacos.
