I wish I had been there. You make me drool.

We had chicken too, Dawgluver. I smoked some chicken in the smoker, periodically mopped with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Served with macaroni salad from the local deli and a veg.

Oh my gosh, such great sounding dinners here tonight! Yum!

I've been on an avocado kick lately. Had one yesterday with the pulled pork tacos.

This afternoon I made guacamole and pico de gallo, and fried up some corn tortillas for dippin'. Watermelon on the side. I still have two more avocados to use up so one of them will probably be included in tomorrow's dinner as well. I was too hungry to take a pic so used a file pic, but it looked pretty much the same. Yum, I'm stuffed.

Chicken-check. Avocado-check. I guess I can join tonight's dinner party. We had summer for a day by us (76 degrees and sun), so I put huge piles of mixed greens tossed with carrots, celery, and radishs on dinner plates, then topped with cut-up ham, chicken, mushrooms, black and green olives, tomato, shredded cheese, and boiled eggs. I added avocado slices and sunflower seeds to mine, cut up scallions and a handful of dukkah for Himself Baked up a tube of Grands biscuits. I have to stop buying those things...

Pizza again. This is the last of it. Tomorrow I will be eating hamburger and rice.

Thank you, Steve.

Just wanted to pop back in here and comment on your dinner pics, Kgirl and CG - those look delicious! CG, I do LOVE those loaded up salads. Yum.

Rock, you've inspired me to get some chili out of the freezer sometime this week. Sounds good. I might have to make some jalapeno corn muffins to go with it.
