Yes, put that on your list of things to do, Cheryl. Mayans are sweet, but come nowhere close to Vidalias. Gotta be quick though, they are very seasonal.

Carl grilled chicken leg quarters, and we had leftover cole slaw, corn on the cob, and Ice cream and the rest of the watermelon for dessert!

Burp!

With love,

That's what I just read - April through September, or something close to that.

Rib Eye fajita tacos with homemade tortillas from a Mexican Grandma we know. Beans and and a salad. The tortillas were so tender and nothing like store bought. She came to our house last year and taught my wife to make Mole'. I feel blessed at times!

That was yum. I didn't have any stock, so I used white wine. It added an interesting tangy note to the meatloaf.

Looks yummy, taxy! I'd love a slice of that meatloaf.

Everyone's meals sound so good.

We had hot dogs and a chicken dish that I don't have a name for. Basically 5 lbs. chicken thighs, 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cup ketchup, 1 cup brown sugar and a couple cloves garlic. In a pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 45 to 60. I did a half recipe it in a pressure cooker with an additional 1/2 cup of water to the pot for 15 minutes. Good and simple. Left over tuna-mac and marinated cucumber salad.

We are on day one of our Candida cleanse which means no sugar in any form including fruit, starches, dairy (except for probiotic yogurt) etc. So we had some homemade lean burgers on the grill and fresh veggies. Water is our only beverage right now. I have done this before and it is a tough week but as the sugar gets out of your system you feel so much better.

There's a saying that the flatter the Vidalia, the sweeter. I don't know if that's 100% true or not..... just reporting.
