Friday or is that Fryday? Whatcha munching tonight?

Nothing fried here tonight. I'm having people over that we've not visited with in some time. I'm quite excited! I've got a turkey in brining and I'll likely start it in the house and finish it out on the BBQ if it starts to get too warm inside. We'll have oven roasted potatoes and a cooked veggie to be named later. Dessert is still up in the air. I'm contemplating baking something, but we might just want sundaes with all the fixin's. S'mores for later over the firepit.

Yeah. Me too. That is more of a cooler weather meal around here and a dish that I like to let simmer for a while, enjoy the aroma, and have a couple of bevies. I have a playing engagement tonight so it will have to wait for another night.

There is a new food shack opened here a while back calling themselves Boss Hogs. May have to mosey on down and see what they are slingin'.

Tonight is R&B. Dance stuff. Here is a rough video one of our friends made. The sound could be a lot better, but it was nice of him to do it...

Very cool!
It always seems to be that when someone wants to video a band, the sound usually ain't the best. I reckon that's why sound editors make good money. I don't play as often as I would like to. Since my best friend (guitar player) had a stroke a couple three years ago, he just don't have the energy to play much unless it's for family and/or friends. We still get together and pick and we do play at Rendezvous. Mostly original material and some of that is for after the young'uns have gone to sleep.

We didn't realize he was even doing it until he posted it on Youtube. He was using the video feature on his regular Nikon camera. I remember I thought he was just taking a lot of photos. I think he was sitting too close. That's why the sound was so distorted.

No idea. This is day one of DH's holidays and we are playing it by ear. I would love to go to the beach and have fish and chips if the weather cooperates.

I am making (or should I say making up ) an Asian chicken salad of some sort for lunch.

I think DH is going golfing tonight, despite the ridiculous heat - we're supposed to have a heat index of up to 112 degrees F! I'm thinking I'll make a salad with fresh mozzarella, garden-fresh cucumbers and tomatoes, and some Italian sausage broiled in the toaster oven.

I'm thinking of combining saute'd summer squash with diced stewed tomatoes, and a couple of hamburger patties for a Sally's Buried steaks.

Am thinking something with eggs. The Olympic opening is on tonight, so we're not going out.
