I am off off off today. Lou came up last night.... We took a 15 mile bike ride through the parks this morning. Dinner will be great!

We're starting with mai tais for cocktail hour.

I have fresh mozzarella with tomatoes and basil from the garden to start with. I'm using a combination of very ripe reds and unripe green tomatoes for colour and flavour. I've got great bread from a bakery in hoboken.

Dinner will be stuffed whole red snapped done on the grill. I'm going to stuff it with roasted bread cubes, plums, cilantro, and onions. I'll make a sauce of white wine and mangoes to go with that, served with brown rice.

I have almond and coconut macaroons from Fralingers in Ocean City for dessert.


I also have a 10 pound pork from Canulli brothers on 9th Street in Philly smoking in the yard. That could possibly be picked on tonight, or saved for down the shore picnic tomorrow.

Okay, I don't bake much, but this sounds great - and healthy! Mind posting the recipe? TIA.

I was thinking of Lamb Gyros and baklava tonight.....but talk of steaks in another thread have swayed me that way.

So, T-Bones on the grill, twice baked potatoes with sour cream and fresh chives, steamed broccoli with cheese, and rolls.

Chicken "something." Had planned a baked chicken dish, but it's still too hot to turn the oven on. Gonna revise the menu and put the chicken in the crock-pot. I'm thinking along the lines of some garlic, white wine and tarragon. I have a head of garlic I can roast to make a spread for the half baguette that's in the fridge, then complete the meal with a light salad. I'll be soooooooooo glad when this heat is over. It's just no fun cooking when it's like this.

Here’s a thought, you could always move that really wonderful toaster oven you own to the front porch, back porch, far away room, etc, and bake in it?

Good point, keltin. Hadn't thought of that. Merits consideration. Thanks.

We had chicken florentine, brown rice, and broccoli. Simple but delicious and healthy.
