CJ, with a menu like that, she will love you all and want to celebrate forever.

We had Publix fried chicken tenders, Onion Rings, Macaroni and cheese, three bean salad. I did make the salad. We had watermelon for dessert. I need rest after the last 2 weeks.

I'm doing Arroz con Pollo with chorizo.

My wife is half Cuban and it's a dish very near and dear to her heart, although it's fast become one of my favorite comfort foods as well.

Enjoy with an icey cold Presidente and some fried plantains. w00t.

Cornbread-stuffed Cornish hens basted with blackberry jelly, lemon, dried cherries and allspice. Sauce of the basting mixture will be served on the side. French green beans, then the ice cream we didn't get around to yesterday.

We'll have ladyfinger popcorn later in the evening while we watch "Over the Hedge." Loooove our new Whirley-Pop popper. It's awesome.

Since my kitchen is still undergoing renovation, I've been making a "wine and herb-butt" grilled chicken every Sunday - tonight it was thyme and garlic. We eat the wings and legs on Sunday, then use the leftovers to make other things during the week. So I had chicken and a cucumber salad. If I get the energy, I might make a caprese salad with fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden, along with fresh mozzarella, evoo and red wine vinegar.

Today I made pork loin chops, browned, then simmered in Bush's homestyle beans until cooked through. This was served with steamed Asian style vegetables and corn on the cob. Dessert was a slice of banana pineapple pecan bread with a sccop of butter pecan ice cream, covered in caramel sauce and whipped cream.

Like Barb L and kadesma I also grilled tri-tip. I seasoned the tri-tip with a spice blend that I bought at a crafts fair that I went to on Saturday. With the tri-tip I had grilled zucchini and onions tossed with Italian seasoning and EVOO, tomato and mozzarella slices sprinkled with fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper and cottage cheese with chives and lots of pepper.

Since it was such an absolutely lovely day & evening here yesterday, I once again fired up the charcoal grill & did chicken wings 2 ways: All dry-seasoned before grilling, then half tossed with Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce, & the other half tossed with a blow-the-top-of-your-head-off super hot Korean Chicken Wing Sauce recipe I made for the 1st time (& will definitely be making again!!!!).

Yesterday we went to the ocean/beach. DH's parents are staying in a cottage up there. They bought a bunch of marinated meats from the butcher and my MIL made a salad and roasted some squash and zucchini on the grill. Earlier that day, she made blue berry pancakes for us all. After dinner, we all had icecream sandwiches. Yummmmmmmmmy!!!!!
