What is Sunday's Grub, Bub? July 22nd

It's a pleasant day outside so I'm going to smoke a small pork sirloin roast. It's been dry rubbed and refrigerated. Some kind of potato and a cucumber salad along side.

It's DH's birthday. We're having the potential future in-laws over and I'm making my homemade pizzas. We'll have salads and birthday cake (chocolate) with vanilla ice cream.

Buonasera,

My daughter and grand daughter are leaving for Zürich tomorrow morning, so we are going to have a light bite out on an open air sidewalk overlooking the Port and the Fort Castle. Lovely historical setting ... Then, to get an early start Monday ...

Have nice Sunday.
Ciao.
Margi.

For lunch we grabbed a rotisserie chicken at the store, after church, as well as some cottage cheese.

For supper we will have a vegetable and cheese tray. If that sounds at all fancy, it is a small plastic tray of vegetables from the grocery store, and we will have cheese with it. Colby-Jack for James and habanero cheese with cream cheese for me. For dessert we will have French vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries.

Side note: When I wrote "habanero," it showed it as a misspelling (which I figured it would). When I checked the suggestions, here are the words it gave me as suggestions for it: Habakkuk, Phanerozoic, headbanger, and Mbabane. Odd selection of choices, I think!

We're going to have eggplant Parmesan with eggplant and tomatoes for the sauce, compliments of our container garden. On the side will be steamed vegetable medley (carrots, snow peas, yellow squash, and broccoli), French bread baguette (baked this morning), iced tea and, then, zucchini cupcakes with caramel icing for dessert, baked this afternoon. The yellow squash also came from the garden. We're excited. The containers are producing beautifully.

I went all in tonight.

Very lightly smoked oysters on the half shell with a drizzle of butter/shallot/tarragon sauce.

Pan fried branzino filets, on wilted spinach/garlic and bacon lardons, squeeze of lemon.

Grilled roasted tomatoes/ really good balsamic drizzle.

Side of spaghetti with wild mushroom saute and Parmesan.

Rustic bread slices with olive oil on the grill.

Harry, Harry, Harry! That meal would surely be the way to any woman's heart! I'm sure the lucky lady will be impressed! If ever I get an opportunity to visit Wales and I do expect to one day.....you may find me on your doorstep drooling!!! Well done and good luck ;-)

We are humbly having pasta with a sausage tomato Alfredo sauce, oven grilled veg, green salad and garlic stuffed artisan bread. There may be homemade raspberry ice cream for dessert if it gets done in time :)

That looks so juicy and yummy. I hope there's a container below to catch those juices.
