I think that was everything , maybe I better get my spoon and double-check.
Your hummus sounds good. I'm another who can eat hummus just by itself with a spoon! Yum!

That sounds like a lot of fun Andy

Have a wonderful time

"Channeling pac"? Geez, don't channel me CW, I'm always flipping channels

I'm going to grill a T-bone and a potato on the Smokey Joe tonight. I'll also make a salad and some sauteed zuchinni with herbs de provence to round things out.

Hey Andy, what is ranch potato salad? Do you substitute ranch dressing for the mayo, or add some ranch seasoning to the mixture?

In the past I've used a wet marinade with the typical lemon-olive oil base. This time I decided to try a dry herb rub.

At 5 pm it will go on the rotisserie.

Oh, and homemade tzatziki and pita bread on the side.

I'm hungry already.
That is brilliant Steve, I am sure you will have a lot of fun!

Your greek inspired dish sounds wonderful, a crowd pleaser for sure
