I'm going to smoke some spareribs. Not sure about the sides, although I usually make potato salad and coleslaw. I have a lot to do today, so I probably won't be making those. I might go buy some (shudder!).

I have a cookbook called easy pasta dinners. I've made this before and it's good. It's called saucy spiced shells. There stuffed with a ground beef mixture. It calls for spagetti sauce....I"m using the last of the homemade pasta sauce I had made a few weeks ago. It consists of green peppers, onion, cinnamon, allspice and other stuff as well. It also calls for jumbo shells and I only have manicotti shells but that's ok. I'll also cook up some rolls to go with it. The only problem is it's suppose to be hot today and by the time night time falls, it will be very warm in the house. My DH doesn't like me cooking when it's too warm. If worse comes to worse...we'll order out I guess. I did make the entire filling for the shells this morning.

legend 018, sounds delicious with the cinnamon and allspice.

I'm making spaghetti and meatballs tonight with garlic bread. 'Gotta have my comfort food, even in the summer. It will be warm here too, so I'm making everything ahead and then just heating it for dinner.

I'm making it ahead of time too "well I hope 3pm is ahead of time". Won't be serving it until 6pm. I will have to reheat it in the microwave. I can't serve the rolls though. boo hooo and there perfect for this meal. First, I have the kind that you have to take out of the freezer at least 2-3 hours before hand, of which I haven't done yet. and than I would have to turn the oven on again later on. I don't think my DH will like that. So I'm cooking everything now minus the rolls

I just polished off the last of the five spice chicken, brown rice with grated carrot, and Asian vegetables, and ate the last piece of apple cranberry cheesecake. Unlike a Mrs Smith's apple pie, a cheesecake can be cut into 12 servings without falling apart.

Stuffed peppers, mashed potatoes, broccoli and strawberry cake for the sweet ending! I wish I had thought of something else since it is very warm here. Oh well...

The spareribs ought to be done in minutes. I've got some baked beans going, and PeppA made a salad.

I saw corn on the cob has come down from $0.50/ea to $0.33/ea. I might have to get some, but, the price ought to bottom out in a few weeks, then it'll be 8 ears / $1.

I just made a phenomenal sauce, spicy ginger-mango gastrique. I had it with salmon, and also some black beans. I made a lot of this sauce so I'm eager to try it on all sorts of things, I think it will be really great on pork. The sweet gets you first, then the tangy from the rice wine vinegar, and then the ginger and cayenne finish with a nice little pop. It's so wonderful. Gotta say, I'm eager to explore the world of gastrique now...

I made Sushi for the first time! California Roll with Imitation crab and Baby Cucumbers. The sushi rice was sticky, made earlier (around 3:45 in the afternoon) and I just ate a late dinner at 10. The cool rice was sticky and delicious, I ate the leftover rice on the side with soy.
I also made my own wasabi, so easy, but i feel accomplished!
I made 2 rolls, (approx. 15 large pieces!)
