Supposed to have my son's 1st baseball game tonight. Their last 2 practices have been rained out, so they have not done that in 2 weeks.
So, if tonight's monsoon holds off we have a game at 7.

I want to make some chicken wings but I'm waiting for MIL's recipe.
Hopefully I'll have it by noon. If not....
Sketti?

Going out to meet a friend... she started working on the same day ( same place) that I did. She's already quit. She's smarter than I am. Any way... I'm looking forward to a great salad and maybe a bowl of hot soup.

Marinating boneless skinless chicken thighs all night in ranch dressing and ketchup and lime seasoning. I know it sounds disgusting and I have no idea how it'll turn out or if they'll even be good. Don't know where or why I got the idea, just seemed like maybe it'd work. Gonna put my croutons from yesterday in the Cuisinart, pulse the hail out of 'em and douse the chicken in them, then drizzle a little melted butter on top before I bake 'em. Started thinking the texture needed adding to, a crumb topping will help I think. Did anyone know about panko and if you think it could be made at home?
Mash of cauliflower, celery root, potatoes, butter/cream salt and pepper.
Spinach salad with red onions, hard cooked eggs, mushrooms, walnuts, lemon vinaigretta.
Bread sticks from last night with butter, for him, not me.
I may have a bite or two of the mousse.

I think I'll make some vegetable soup for dinner. Today is our anniversary and I'd like to make something fabulous but everyone is still sick so it'll be soup.

Oh, Corazon, Happy Anniversary!! I'm so sorry you are all still sick and hope you are better very soon!

I am roasting two whole chicken breast "racks" (ala Cooks Illustrated). It is a special technique that I am curious about - I'll let you know how it turns out. Also a cauliflower/broccoli casserole and some fresh mangoes. The guy who usually delivers our water dropped by yesterday with some he had picked from his own trees - 20 pounds of fresh ripe mangoes for 40 pesos ($4 USD). I'll have to puree some and freeze them before they go bad....

We're taking my niece out to her favorite restraunt for her 16th birthday.
She's such a good girl. (she's making me feel old though)

We did lunch out today, and I had beef and noodles, homestyle green beans, pickled beets and a dinner roll.

It is another hot one here, we hit 99 degree, so nothing too hot or heavy for dinner.

I'm marinating chicken tenders in a mixture with orange juice and zest, lemon juice and zest, honey, chopped cilantro, salt and pepper. I'll skewer them and grill them up and have salad on the side.

I am supposed to make chicken Panang tonight, but don't much feel like cooking as I am tired today and dragging, so maybe everyone fends for themselves.

My mother in law is here for 2 weeks, and my daughter (step) is here for 10 days. We've been hanging out by the pool (inflatable one, but big enough for a raft!)!

Tonight my daughter wanted loose meat, baked potatoes (on the grill cuz I wont start the oven!), and broccoli with cheese! We have cherry pie for dessert (store bought) or ice cream with Hershey's syrup and caramel syrup.

I wouldn't add the butter before baking. It will make your breading too soft.
