DH has been in a lot of pain with his spine and just has no wish to eat. He loves crab and shrimp louis so I'm making him a salad for when he gets back froim his doctors appointment in San Francisco today. I'm taking 1 lb of crab meat and 1/2 lb. shrimp some celery, and a small amount of onion and enough mayo to bind everything. On his plate I'll put several thick slices of garden fresh tomato sliced thick. Then an artichoke bottom on the tomato fill the artichoke with the crab and shrimp then circle the artichoke with shredded iceberg and garnish it with chopped cooked egg. Top everything with either green goddess or louis dressing on the side. Some warm garlic and cheese bread and a cool drink. Hopefully this will peak his appetite.

CJ, do you make your own green goddess dressing? I've never made mine, but haven't been able to find it for quite a while. My family ate that almost exclusively years ago.

that sounds great, hope he feels better soon.
Not sure here, I have a summer cold. yuck. I took some chicken tenders out, sprinkled them with some unlabeled green herb that was in the spice cabinet, wanted to use up. and also sprinkled with some basic chicken grill seasoning I got on sale... will either grill or bake. will probably put some kind of rice in the rice cooker, stir in scallions towards the end. I cleaned/prepped some lettuce, so might pull together stuff for a chopped salad...

Yesterday turned into a very crazy day (more so than usual)....and a hot one! Neither DH or I felt like making or eating dinner and instead at dinnertime went out in our air conditioned car to shop in air conditioned stores. We picked up some really good meat deals including jumbo prawns, already butterflied and on a skewer, and beautiful 2 for 1 rib eyes. So, around 8 pm we had grilled surf and turf. Was awesome with a simple salad. Sorry, no pictures. We gobbled it down!
