I've got a ham going in my smoker right now. Gonna give it until 6, then take it out and carve it up. Probably corn, and not sure about the starch. Cornmeal mush, maybe?

no, no, no mush , Allen! Corn is a starch. If you need a bread-like side, make cornbread or cornbread muffins. Or grill some pineapple or stir-fry some peaches with brown sugar and powdered ginger. Either will go great with your ham.

Will have my birthday meal. Lobster tail with drawn butter, Caesar salad, champagne, and raspberry sherbet instead of birthday cake. I soooo love birthdays!!

Birthday meal here too!
and it was o so good!
made some of these pumkin spinach ravioli that are always really good! had some salad with a new balsamic vinagrette. topped it off with some raspberry cheesecake that I made.
I'm pretty full, but there is some ice cream in the freezer that hasn't been tried yet and we're about to watch a movie so....
It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair.

Live Strong

I lit up the charcoal grill & made kabobs from a large Shady Brook Farms Marinated Turkey Tenderloin cut into chunks, along with chunks of baby zucchini, orange & yellow bell peppers, Vidalia onions, & extra-large fresh white mushroom caps. Served them with a large green salad.
