What's for Dinner Friday, July 23rd?

Well, DH and I will be seeing each other coming and going all day, but I am really hoping we can get the chicken which is finally thawed on the spit today. I will be using a roasted garlic lime marinade/basting sauce I have been dying to try. If we don't get it on in time we will be grabbing whatever we feel like out of the fridge once more!

What is your dinner going to look like tonight?

I will be grilling bone-in chicken breast halves with skin on for dinner tonight. We'll have cocktails on the deck while they are cooking.

I've been preparing for a breakfast tomorrow morning for some out of town long time friends, plus shining up the house. I'm beat and dog tired.

We have some finally ripe home grown matters......whoo hoo.
I'll be putting together a couple of huge BLT's for dinner with a twist.
B=bacon
L=languistino (mixed with mayo and lemon juice)
T=tomato, home grown
some lettuce too,

on toasted bakery sesame seed buns. Homemade coleslaw for the side, that I made yesterday.

Had some running around to do and ended up at the Asian Market......love that place!!! I picked up a variety of sushi, some Vietnamese summer rolls and BBQ salmon. T'was a veritible feast and we even got to eat it together!

The chicken wasn't quite thawed anyway so will wait until tomorrow.

Kayelle, that sounds marvelous!!! Will keep that one in mind. The market I was at had some languistinos - we haven't had them for a long time!

Got the idea from a fabulous little seaside joint near San Diego some time ago. There it was bacon, lobster and tomato. To die for!
Quite a twist on a BLT !
