I just finished cooking up some chicken breasts in the pressure cooker. I'll shred it up and use it in a chicken pot pie tonight. I'm going to put a little saffron in the gravy I use to kick it up a notch.

Some friends have invited us over for dinner and cards tonight. They're serving grilled salmon, pesto pasta and salad. I'm bringing Stinky Sullivan's Lemon Icebox Pie. Love a no-bake dessert recipe in the heat of the summer!

I bought a 12 pak of beer recent for the Pancake contest. Used a half cup in Steve Kís beer and buttermilk recipe. I KNEW I wanted to make another recipe that calls for beer. CANíT for the life of me remember what that is -- now that thereís beer in the house. LOL. I got another bug up my butt to make chicken pot pie. Which means I need some cooked chicken and roasted vegetables. Will bake the pot pie up tomorrow.

Today I am oven roasting not grilling my first beer can chicken and will roast some potatoes, onions and carrots in a pan alongside. Stuffed some herbs ( rosemary and garden sage and thyme) over and under the skin. I hope this thing produces some drippings as I really need gravy too. Weíll see.

2 questions if you might know. Does the beer in the chicken steam itself away or just bubble in the can? Should I store beer in the frig or is it ok to sit on a shelf in my kitchen pantry?? Itís really not that much cooler in the basement this time of year either. Thanks.

TaterTot green bean casserole made with the green bean disaster from yesterday (too many hot pepper flakes). Thanks to .40, it is delicious!

I'll bet hubby was expecting butter chicken with a side order of beef schnitzel.

I have a one kilo piece of pork sirloin I'm marinating in a chipotle marinade. I'll grill it later with some roasted red potatoes.

It's just me tonight so I'm making some mac and cheese to go with the leftover bbq chicken that I'll warm up. I may make a salad too.

Himself got bad news when he took our propane tank for refill...it died. So much for burgers - I don't want to do them in the house (danged smoke detectors...). Plan B is no plan at all since I'm warm and crabby. The AC will take care of the "warm" and an expedition thru the freezer and food shelves in the basement might produce something that looks interesting. That will take care of the "crabby". For me, there's always a PB & jelly on raisin bread, so maybe there's enough chinese leftovers for Himself.
