Oooh... sounds wonderful. It's been a while since I've made Gyros.

Yep SC, that would have been the perfect background music! I haven't had Gyros in way too long and need to add it to the menu very soon.

Great looking (and sounding) dinners here tonight.

I grilled several smallish chicky thighs early this afternoon, as I knew I'd be going over to my daughter's late afternoon to watch Tyler while she and hubby went to the movies. Wasn't sure when I'd be back.

I usually don't care much for bbq sauce, but was kind of in the mood for some on my chicken today. I added a light shake of liquid smoke to the sauce and just brushed on a light layer. Pretty good. Sautéed string beans with mushrooms and onions, and steamed baby red potatoes with parsley/garlic/butter sauce rounded everything out.

We had Shepherd's Pie for dinner with flaky biscuits and butter. Very good.

So many good looking and sounding meals tonight. I'm hungry all over again!

It's official: we starve tomorrow. Well, maybe not starve, but all of the prepared leftovers are gone. I finished the last of the Italian sausage, Himself ate the hot dogs and bun, and we cleaned out the bit of black beans and a couple tomatoes with corn that was fresh-bought yesterday - I made a corn/bean/tomato salad with (now gone) Cojita cheese. No more cherry-berry crisp, either.

I'll come up with food for us to eat tomorrow, since we still have a small assortment of raw foods. Whatever doesn't end up on our plates tomorrow will take a ride in the car with us on Monday.

Got home late, never planned anything so finally I foraged in the fridge and ended up making a paella-ish rice dish with leftover chicken breast, one hot Italian sausage, two small pieces of Haddock, chopped tomatoes, Serrano chilies, celery, onions, garlic, tomato juice, smoked paprika, thyme......turned out OK...
