Dinner Sunday 21st of August

Sunday dinner in my house is always more like a late lunch!
I'm making crispy Roast Chicken Pieces, small jacket potatoes with sour cream and chives and a crisp side salad of Arugula, Cos lettuce, radishes and tomatoes and maybe some nasturtium flowers if the kids didn't pick them all!

I'll probably be nibbling on the items I smoke today for dinner.

Capellini arribiata (using ingredients from our garden) with freshly grated Black Diamond sharp cheddar (Glenn's request), romaine salad with homemade red wine vinaigrette, garlic baguette, a bottle of red wine, and a refrigerator coconut pie I created a few days ago from some leftover coconut creme that needed to be used up before it ruined.

I was going to smoke a chicken on the Weber but the rains that were supposed to start tonight started about 5 minutes ago. The chicken goes in the oven instead. I'll make pilaf and a veggie to go with it.

We had fried chicken, potato wedges, roast asparagus and cheesecake for dessert. Andy, we are really getting a rain now - it is blowing white and sideways. Much of this and it will reach the top of the pool filter. At least the water will be cooler if it goes on a while.

We hit Golden Corral after church. It's been a while since we've eaten there. Since it was buffet style, no one is really hungry. May just do breakfast and do up some omelets.

Went to a 3hr funeral and then a 3 hr wake with the best buffet ever.

We are now snacking on some tater tots with chili and cheese instead of dinner.

The funeral had a horse carriage and military honors. Impressive!
