It must be cool where you are, luvs. It's supposed to top out at 92 degrees here - I'll be making no-cook pasta sauce with rotini, topped with grilled chicken, accompanied by a green salad.

i bought some sushi grade salmon and octopus to make into sashimi for lunch (2nd time having sushi this week ), along with marinated squid, and some korean kimchi.

but, a double shift today means dinner tonight will be a quick trip home, bath, books, then the mad dash back to work.

souvlaki at midnight.

Hey, Q, I got a signed copy of that book when we saw him do a cooking demo at Scope in March. I've made several dishes from it, all excellent. We especially like the southwestern potato salad and tomatillo-avocado relish. Enjoy

souvlaki is (are?) greek shish kebabs.

it's cubes of meat, usually lamb, that are marinated in a greek style dressing (evoo, lemon, garlic, oregano), then grilled. the place i go doesn't always have lamb, so i often get beef.

it's served wrapped in a pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, pepper, feta cheese, and tsatsiki sauce.

and a side o' fries.
