I hope that all goes well with the wildfires in AZ. We have sent some firefighters from California down your way. Maybe you will get some summer monsoonal weather as long as it doesn't bring lightning with it, to start more wildfires. Good luck and take care.

Here is a website that is good for getting information on wildfires nationwide.

Happy Birthday America!

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July! Today, our menu was delicious and we shared it with my BIL and his girlfriend at home then went to see our fireworks display in the evening. Our menu was bbq chicken with Hawaiian bbq sauce, bbq sirloin steak wrapped in bacon topped with chipotle bbq sauce, potato salad, Spanish rice, charro beans with bacon, cilantro, onions, garlic and "habanero" peppers, green salad with cherry tomatoes, and chocolate mousse topped with fresh strawberries...can't get any better than this.

Well, we ended up with some mighty-large thunderbuster storms - heavy rain, wind, & dangerous sky-to-ground lightning. Not to mention it was hotter than heck here (temps hit 99 + humidity).

So. . . . my turkey kabobs ended up cooked under the broiler - but they were still good. A couple of Margheritas softened the sting of not being able to cook outdoors - lol!!
