Dinner Monday 8th of August

Was going to make a soup but I discovered a really good chicken soup I made a few weeks ago in the freezer. I'm defrosting that and I'll just add a touch more stock and some more veggies for dinner tonight.

Something with the chicken that I didn't do anything with yesterday. I got it cut up anyway, but wasn't really hungry for dinner. Looking forward to supper tonight.

We're having vegetable beef soup that I made, but didn't eat, a couple days ago. I think I'll pick up whatever bread looks good in the bakery section at the grocery store to go with it.

I'm going to puree some of the vegetable soup/stew base I made yesterday down to just showing bits and pieces. Then thicken it slightly into a good sauce consistency and pour over some angel hair pasta. I'll have a nice dinner salad to go with it.

BLTs. I don't know how to do it, but picture me rolling my eyes. The last time I tried to make BLTs, my doggie jumped up and ate a full pound of bacon. Dinner, gone in one gulp. We tossed her out the door and laughed our fool heads off. I will be more careful today!

I had one snatch an entire rack of baby-back ribs right off the grill one day! Little thief looked like he's had lots of practice too! He was fast! Flipped it to the ground and then picked it up in his teeth and took off like a rabbit!

I think I heard him laughing...

Speaking of laughing, while I was at the Sydney Zoo, in Australia, having lunch at one of the outside snack bars, a Kookabura flew by and snatched a french fry right from my friends mouth while we were sitting at picnic tables.

I can only bet that it startled your friend greatly!

After the initial shock of it, I can also bet it was as funny as can be!

A few friends and I spent New Years at a game reserve one time and when we woke up we found a couple of really drunk monkeys that stole all the alcohol off the table left over from the night before. One still had a bottle of Amarula and was drinking some in a tree outside the chalet
We had to drive into town to go get drinks for the rest of the holiday and made sure we took everything inside for the next few nights.

Going to try this: Recipe for Gluten Free, Sugar Free Gluten-Free Parmesan Quinoa Recipe with Zucchini, Yellow Quash, & Carrots minus the carrots (they aren't ready to be pulled yet and I don't have any in the fridge).
DH has football practice until 8:00 and has been hot and tired when he gets home so this looks like it will be ready on the stove when he is ready to eat.
