I made fancy-pants salads (note the in-house marinated green beans ). We also have grilled hot dogs and freezer-found mac-and-cheese, but the salads were so filling I'm not sure we'll ever get to those tonight. Then again...

We had Chinese take out tonight, as the bags are packed and the kitchen is closed. We're flying out in the morning for a week long history tour of Philadelphia, Williamsburg, Washington DC and parts in between.

Looks good, kgirl.

Wow, Kay...you and Steve are off again! John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" came to mind as I was reading your post. Have a great time on your trip, looking forward to pics.

As for dinner, I had a nice cool fruit salad - watermelon, mango, nectarines, and strawberries. I've been working in the garage a good part of the day - sweeping, taking the tote bins off the shelves and wiping off the dust, etc...last thing I wanted to do was cook.


bibble, I hope your leg heals quickly, and welcome to DC.

We ended up with Hardee's chicken tenders, and DH got one of their fish sandwiches.

I'm not a fan of chicken or turkey sausages. I had chicken brats in onion & beer. Still not a fan, never again!

I've had good sausage made with lamb, like merguez and a very interesting, smokey, Icelandic, lamb sausage. Poultry just makes such sadly, flavourless sausage.

My husband and I were going to go out to dinner last night, but it was stormy, so we decided to have our date in house. Went with a cheese board, charcuterie board, various chutnies and jellies, bread, cranberry and fennel crisps, grapes, and cauliflower fritters with a fig and mustard dipping sauce.

That's festive. What a great way to rescue date night and avoid the storm. Ooh, it includes cocktails and bubbly with the food.

DH and I went out to celebrate my birthday. DH had an Apple Manhattan and I I had a Pineapple Upside Down Martini and we started with a crispy pork belly appetizer. For dinner, I had a cider-marinated pork chop with mac 'n cheese and BBQ gastrique. DH had duck over polenta. For dessert, I had a warm brownie with ice cream and frambaise (raspberry) wine while DH had banana pudding with a glass of Sauternes. It was magnificent.

Always the bubbly. I'm a big fan of Prosecco, and with its price, why not always have a bottle or two in the house?
