If you've never tried Mac Salad with your Chili,
you're missing out!

Try it.

In any case, what's your plan?

I checked the weather. No rain forecast for today, but a 60% chance tomorrow, so it will be grilled burgers tonight. I'll make some potato salad to go with them.

We have leftovers. Enough for a couple of Reuben sandwiches, plus four hot dogs from last night. It looks like we'll have enough leftovers for two nights, but a shrimp boil is on the list for tomorrow. If we proceed as planned, we'll have plenty of leftovers for Monday!

Well, I got the Macaroni Salad ala Zippy's made
and cooling it's heels in the `fridge.

I was tasting as I went along, I think I'm going to
re-visit the blog post and re-vamp the recipe, just a touch.

I just listened to that song on my Amazon, while out in the garden!

Leftovers today - I'll probably make some quacamole to go with them, which is the only food prep I'll do, except freezing that okra, and prepping more stuff for the dehydrator.

Burgers, baked beans, more of the tomato pie.

Should have been leftovers but I had kept out some ground beef when I packaged it up for freezing on Thursday. Didn't want it to go bad. Click image for larger version

we were going to do steaks on the grill. A few rain drops/ sprinkes are ok. But then it started lightning. I don't do lightning. Had already popped a couple potatoes in the oven, so I let them finish. We are having twice baked potatoes, cheese bacon and sour cream, green salad with tomatoes, and if we're good, ice cream for later. SO can dish the ice cream, she has a heavier hand than I.

So, the burgers were grilled and the kaiser buns were toasted on the grill. DH also grilled a peach. We had never tried that before, so we only did the one. It was good. So were the burgers. I found some leftover penne in the fridge while looking for the taters so, I made potato salad and pasta salad. Of the two, we liked the potato salad better. The Angus burgers were delicious, as usual.

Well, the temperature dropped enough after sunset to fire up the Weber Kettle, and smoke some chicken thighs with charcoal and hickory wood. I finished the chicken with some Stubbs Heat and Sweet BBQ sauce. I tossed an ear of corn lubed with OO, and seasoned with salt and pepper on the grill side near the end.
