We were supposed to have grilled chicken smothered with mushrooms, green peppers and onions. Grilled asparagus with lemon-Garlic Aoli. However, when I got off work this morning there were no packages of 2 breasts and so I ended up with a small chuck steak and the above mentioned veggies. It was raining cats and dogs, so no grilling. I diced the onions, green pepper, celery and sliced the mushrooms. Placed all in the crockpot with the beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder and 8 ounces of water, covered it and went to bed for a few hours. I was thinking beef ettouffe (again) over rice, but when I tasted the broth was pleasantly surprised over the beefy onion mushroom broth. I added some teriyaki and simmer another hour. Cooked up some udon noodles, tossed with sesame oil and ladled over the beef, broth and veggies. Fantastic! Good thing I'm adaptable.

Hopefully tomorrow we can fire up the grill and grill the asparagus.

We took a 4 hour ride on the Harley beginning just after noon today. Had a great ride and even got rained on a bit. Still a great ride. So happy to see the sun and feel the breeze against our faces.

Thank goodness I'd made a refrigerated antipasto pasta salad last night so it was already to serve, which was on a bed of our first red lettuce from the garden. I'd made some French bread before our ride, so we had that with some butter with the salad, then finished our meal with the last of the season's strawberries over homemade shortcake. Boo, hoo, the strawberries are done for this year. They were awesome.

Happy Memorial Day to all and "thanks" to all our veterans, past, present and future. You're the reason Glenn and I can enjoy a day like we had today!!!!!

Since we had BBQ yesterday, we decided to go out for dinner. We went to NORMS. It was OK. The presentation wasn't quite so appealing. I should've taken a picture of my meal. I ordered a NY steak strip with mashed potatoes and a side of sauteed vegetables. It looked like the chef plopped everything onto one plate. I received too much mashed potatoes and the gravy spilled onto the steak and vegetables. The only thing I liked tonight was the ceasar salad. So I was disappointed with my meal.

I have never seen hot dogs scored like that before to grill. Any special reason?

Because they are unusual and fun. And my mom did it when she fried dogs. It would make the girls giggle when they were young. No special reason just fun seeing them curl and split.
