It was delish. There's enough shrimp leftover to warm up and make another one tomorrow - two would have been too much for one meal for me.
I sprinkled the shrimp with Penzey's Arizona Dreaming, let them sit for a bit, and gave them a quick pan fry. The sauce was a blend of plain Greek yogurt, mayo, a little adobo sauce, and lime juice.

I rubbed chicken thighs with Penzeys Barbecue of the Americas and olive oil and DH grilled them.

I also made potato salad with minced celery, crumbled bacon, diced tomatoes and basil chiffonade, and dressing made with red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise and Penzeys Fox Point seasoning. Good stuff.

Lovely meals, Rock and Cheryl! Great idea to use Arizona Dreaming on shrimp, Cheryl.

We're just grazing on leftovers.

Good advice Cheryl, and they turned out ok. That dang propane grill is a sad excuse for my old charcoal grill though. Fire up that puppy, and set those babies on fire!! Whooo Hooo!!

I've had a can of Bush's Asian BBQ Beans in the cupboard for a bit and decided to try them with some Asian style Fried Chicken (aka Chicken Katsu) and a new recipe that I found and made my own with a few twists and turns,
Summer Slaw.
I had enough to share with Mr&Mrs Landlord upstairs, `member they have very late work days on Tuesdays and Thursday, so I try very hard to have extra to send up in the dumb waiter.
Everyone enjoyed!
BTW, if you see those beans, grab a can or two, they really are good, a bit of Hoisin Sauce in it I think, tasty for sure.

I made it easy on myself - I took the last tub of homemade meat sauce from the freezer and made spaghetti. Traditional garden salad on the side.

An old standby, tasso pasta, julienned homemade tasso from the freezer, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, onion and minced garlic, all sauteed, with cream/parm sauce over gemelli pasta, and more parm on top!

I hope you have a really good AC.

No dinner here. Have to send out for food for the next week. Fortunately the building management is paying for it. My kitchen is out of commission for the next five days. The flood did more damage than they first realized.
