Going to a family BBQ today, so no cooking for me, but I will bring a blueberry cobbler for dessert. Happy weekend everyone!

Not too sure yet - it is scorching hot here at 8:30 am. DH is on nightshift so wants a breakfasty type meal and Dad is eating very little and light so I am thinking something revolving around hard boiled eggs....LOL, I know that is a strange main, but it is the only thing I can think of that fits all the criteria!

Scorching hot LP? Its a lovely 21 here in Victoria with a beautiful breeze. Come on across the inlet for a visit!

I'll be at the ball diamonds most of the afternoon and early evening. No clue what I'll eat for dinner but either a ballpark burger/hot dog, or I'll wait and have something take out around here.

The cool thing for me is that our hotel is right next to a Costco! I slipped over and bought muffins and juice and a bunch of other stuff for breakfasts etc. Thats better than restaurant food every meal!

Thanks, Ms M for the ideas. We have some delicious Alderwood smoked bacon I picked up at Costco the other day so those sound great. Dad can't have the toast so I will use fresh crustless bread, but he will enjoy the salad. I will PM you the answer to your other question.

YUP!! Vacation food tends to be over priced garbage!! And the good food is obscenely expensive!! I try to get hotels/motels with fridge/micros and a close store. I love coming home to cook!! This trip we found one Best Western that had a BBQ for guests to use at no charge!! Just supply your own coal etc and food. Enjoy your outing Alix!!

Alix, I put some restaurant suggestions in your other thread. Oh, don't tempt me! I could have come over with my best friend and her son and then gone on with her for a ladies get-together on Mayne Island for a few days but I can't leave Dad right now.

Have a great time!

I have family and friends coming over this evening so I'll be doing 2 racks of baby back ribs, 2 racks of beef back ribs, 1 tri-tip, chicken wings, corn, baked potatoes, and 2 loaves of banana bread. They'll all be thrown in the outdoor wood oven.

Something easy. Really tired today.
Been wanting Spanish tortillas for a while. It's simple and a one skillet dinner. Can't beat that.

I got a very nice surprise. Our grandaughter came by for a visit and brought flowers and dinner. We had a very nice time and will enjoy the dinner too. She brought pulled pork and macaroni and cheese.

I feel like experimenting today. I think I will make a pot of soup with: Chirizo, Veg.Broth, Mexican Oregano, Onions, Bell Peppers, Hominy, Tomatoes, Garlic, Green Chilies, Cumin, Ancho Chili Powder and maybe a can of Pinto Beans. I like my soup thick, more like a meal rather then "food swimming around in flavored water". Jalapeno Corn Bread.
