No dinner for us. My daughters took SO and me out to eat for an early Father’s Day celebration. I had a house burger with fries and rings. SO had a crab cake sandwich.

We got Chinese take out tonight. We got one combo "plate" (a very full clam shell) of chicken with cashews, pork fried rice, and an egg roll. Also an order of shrimp egg fu yung. Tasty stuff.

Medtran, that looks yummy. I'm also going to guess that you made yours a whole lot more from scratch that my supper.

My supper was total lazy cheat. I made a Thai chicken stir fry. This is the sauce I used:



It was tasty with a lovely level of heat.

And I used a frozen stir fry mix of vegis. DH cooked the (brown) rice several days ago.

So, I just followed the directions and voilà, supper. I accidentally used more veg than called for, but that was fine. In fact, I will use even more veg next time. Also, a bit of tamari helped kick it up. I will probably use something other than chicken next time. I don't much enjoy cutting raw chicken into cubes.

Went to D&SIL's for chicken kabobs, ramen/noodle salad, rice and green beans.

Rainbow sherbet was dessert.

Wish I had pictures. I was too busy cooking to take any. Sorry.

Tonight’s dinner was epic. It was the last opportunity to gather with my girls, and with family friends before I move to Montana. We did this one right. Here’s what ee had:

Brought by friends – perfectly roasted Cornish game hens, seasoned mildly with salt, garlic, and pepper, and stuffed with lemon wedges. The hens were tender, and succulent, creating a need for napkins to wipe the juices fro your face.

Mashed Potatoes, – made by me from half Yukon Gold, Half Russets, boiled until tender, pressed through a ricer, then allowed to dry for ten minutes over low heat. The 5lbs. Of potatoes had 2 sticks of brown butter, and ½ cup of heavy cream folded into them, until completely incorporated.

Honey-Butter Glazed Carrots, cooked until they had just a bit of crunch left. I made those as well. Do I need to say more?

Made by me, and youngest daughter – First, gluten free short bread to crumble and use for cheesecake crust – buttery, and crisp.
New York Cheesecake with lemon curd/fresh raspberry topping. It came out creamy and delicious., with just the right amount for all to have a generous slice.

Compliments on every part of the meal were sounded by all, even the young teenage boys, and to everyone. The only issue I had is that my stomach can only handle one serving anymore, I was pleasantly full. Another bite would have left me stuffed.

This meal gave me the opportunity to put forth effort, one last time, to make great food for people I love, and for friends to get some recognition for their really well done contribution to the meal. Best of all, after a year of Covid forced seclusion, we all had a chance to get together, and share food, and most importantly, friendship.

I do have a picture of the game hens. I just didn't take them.

Ah rars! The picture is too detailed (to large) and won't load.

Don't you have any software that you can use to resize the picture? I use a free picture viewer called IrfanView that lets me do that.

I forgot about Irfanview. I had it on my last laptop. I just downloaded, and installed it. Let's try this again.

Those do look gorgeous and tasty.

I'm glad I could be of help in getting the picture resized and posted.

Sounds like a lucky occasion. Hope your move goes well and nothing gets busted.
