Seasoned hamburger patties with cheese melted on them, served with sliced onions and cold whole dill pickles. Whatever vegetable I grab out of the freezer. Probably grapes for dessert, or we may try the chocolate chunk Greek yogurt we decided to buy on our last grocery shopping trip.

Picked a bunch of peppers from the garden, seeded and sliced and tossed into the pan...few minutes and my eyes are watering and it feels like it is getting a little hard to breath... then I realize I picked three red peppers, thinking they were my sweet hungarians that had turned red.. WRONG.. they were banana peppers that had turned red...can you say capsaicin the air...

I want my babyback, babyback, babyback! I took two slabs of babyback ribs out of the deep freeze this morning. I will make them with a dry rub, then finish them with the HFCS-less Bulls Eye barbecue sauce I bought last week. Add roasted red skinned potatoes, corn, and the last of the 2010 Black Peasant California Zinfandel and I'm all set.

We ordered falafel and shish taouk. There was also tabouli, fatoush salad, roast potatoes, pickles, pickled turnip, pickled peppers, aioli, pitas, and humus. Very, very tasty. We had white Mommessin with supper. We will have dessert in a little while - the second half of the lemon mousse I made yesterday, using raw eggs from CWS.



I need to practice making those whipped cream blobs. I decorated with mint leaves because they look like the lemon balm that the recipe uses for decoration and I don't have any.

If you think my whipped cream blobs are funky, have a look at this photo from my Danish cookbook, Mesterkokkens Store Kogebog.

Taxlady...I'm drooling here over your lemon mousse. Looks fabulous!

.40, your green chili chicken with dumplings sounds so good, I sure would love to steal a plate of that.

So many wonderful sounding meals as always. I'm just nibbling on what's in the fridge tonight. I'm going out of town for a week in a few days, so just using up fresh fruits and veggies.

Taxlady, your "blobs" are much nicer than the "Meserkokkens Store Kogebog" (sorry for some reason I could not Italisize the title)
