Well, my daughter is going to NH, so I am heading to the beach. Lunch will be from BK's children's menu. Child's Whopper, large soda.

My husband and I have become quite popular as of late.

We've moved two counties and 3 hours away, and I suppose folks just want to get to know us, what with our bubbling personalities and all.

Tomorrow, we are invited to two, yes 2 different soirees...

We'll being having luncheon at the adorable local winery with Mr&Mrs DF

and then an evening BBQ with Mr&Mrs New Landlord at a century old GingerBread home in downtown historic Prescott Arizona

Can't think what to take-along, but I've been told there is no need to.
Hmmm, howzabout a nice cold pitcher of pre-made Margaritas for the evening gathering, just saw a great recipe made with fresh squeezed limes and lemons.

As for the winery, it's catered, so...

We are going to try our hands at making shawarma, using ground beef and lamb, on the Weber 22 rotisserie. Has anyone ever made it?

I've made the Greek gyros equivalent. One of the tricks, in my opinion, is getting a fine enough grind on the meat, so that it's almost like a dense paste.

I haven't tried it on my rotisserie, but rather just bake it in the oven or set it on the grill grates, and it comes out good.

The reason I haven't done it on the rotisserie is because I have this fear of the entire thing breaking apart and falling into the fire. I have yet to come up with an idea for securing it to the spit. I'll be interested in seeing how it works for you.

Sounds like some fun plans and good eats for those who have posted so far!
(No watching any kind of hot dog eating contests for me, though. Ugh.)

For the first 45 minutes it is wrapped in foil after being in the freezer for 2 hours. The meat was turned into a paste before being wrapped and tied. Cross your fingers!

I hear ya on that one. But I always watch the Boston Pops Concert every year. When I was younger I used to go to it every single year. Wouldn't dream of missing it.

Just to elaborate, it was tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and compacted like the foie gras au torchon I made a few weeks ago and has been in the fridge overnight. The plastic wrap will come off, it will be wrapped in foil, and then into freezer as above. We may have a change of plans and do this today, then something else on the Q tomorrow.
