I have a nice little steak that needs to meet the grill and I also have a bunch of fresh corn a friend gave me, so that'll be my dinner tonight.

I haven't picked a protein yet, but my green veg will be green beans from my garden!

jake's leaving work early to cook meatballs. he's not very into pasta so it'll probably be on a cellone's roll for him & mine just with sauce. that was what i was starving for last nite, & he needed to help his buddy paint. i was ticked!

In honor of "Bastille Day" - lol - I'll be making Julia Child's recipe (which I've adapted a little) for Coquilles St. Jacques. Baked in huge natural scallop shells & all! Since this is very rich, the only accompaniment will be a big mixed green salad.

Okay, so I have a respite from cakes (albeit a short one) and have my passion for cooking back.

Today I did steak kabobs in my own marinade of balsamic, olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs. I threaded them with mushrooms and red onions. Sides were salad and baked potatoes.

It isn't quite grilling weather and DH is down with a cold so I tried them on the Griddler and they were fantastic (if I do say so myself!). Clean-up was a breeze too.

Dessert is a batch of Katie's dutch chocolate ice cream for me (I am hopelessly addicted to it), soy ice "cream" for DH and no sugar added vanilla ice cream for Dad, and fresh strawberries all round.

I wish I could have taken a picture of them but there wasn't time - they were gobbled up so fast!

Wow, your crab cakes look huge, even though it might just be the picture! That looks delicious! I love yellow squash (depending on the variety) and tomatoes! I would have enjoyed your dinner very much , but a little cup of tartar sauce would have been requested.

I have never had beet greens, but I might like them. It's hard when you don't know what they taste like.

Your chicken sure looks fabulous! Thanks for the picture!
