31 August, what's for Sunday dinner?

Wow, last day of August....where did the summer go? Lou and I have Yankee tickets, last time to see them play in the house that Ruth built. Having a barbecue tonight..

Spinach dip with homemade pita chips
Marianne's potato salad
Pasta salad
Baked Beans
Grilled corn on the cob
Burgers and Franks

Peach pie for dessert (the kitchen smells like a peach orchard) and I'm going to make sangria in about 5 minutes.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day...wouldn't it be nice if the Yankees actually win a game..

By the teriyaki wing thread I have been inspired to make teriyaki bonless thigh tonight, I didn't have honey so I used brown sugar instead.....just can't decide on sides yet! But for dessert I am making a cinnamon streusel cake!

Can already tell I'm not going to be too hungry today, so I've planned tilapia breaded in panko then browned, and romaine salad with homemade vinaigrette. Am about to bake some strawberry cake mix cookies with white chocolate chips and walnuts. They'll be for dessert.

I'm wanting to make some soup later in the week and it's much cheaper here for me to make my own chicken broth. So tonight I am going to use the chicken in some fajita's and sides of some mexican rice and green salad.

Labor Day Weekend Sales. Walked through the Macy*s mall to my fave store yesterday, & they are holding a dress I have to have. Ogled all the cute Fall fashions along the way. So... gonna go pick it up & probably grab some Bejing beef & dumplings at Panda Express, or a Philly Cheeseteak sub from Le Subway. (May make a stop at Williams-Sonoma along the way.) Tomorrow, will prob be grillin' & chillin' after cleaning out the closets etc.

We will be going to my dd and sils' today. They're having their annual Labor Day Cookout! It's got a "redneck" theme since my sil is from the south.
He's boiling hot dogs, corn and potatoes in a big pot over an open fire. Everyone is bringing a dish to share. I think he's also making burgers. There will be a pie eating contest, swimming, cornhole tournament, bobbing for pigs feet and who knows what else. lol He's a riot! I'm making stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon, veggie pizza and baked beans. See you all later.

Bobbing for pigs feet? Are they pickled...the pigs feet, not the hosts? I gotta show this post to my kids who thing the I'M a little bit different. Welllll, they think I'm a LOT different. Have fun , Barb. We're going to look for flooring for the office.

BTW, your fridge pickles are almost gone. I'll bring back the quart jar when we're done so you can refill it.

We went out for a late breakfast and we're going to play poker with friends tonight, so I think we'll just have BLTs around 6. I'm bringing a 7-layer Mexican dip and chips to the poker party.
