Last night I grilled Lemon Garlic marinated turkey kabobs along with mixed grilled vegetables (zucchini, yellow summer squash, red onion, red & yellow bell peppers, mushrooms). Served with Roasted Garlic couscous, a big Greek salad, & warmed buttered soft pita bread.

I LOVE anchovies too, but unfortunately it's a passion not shared by my husband. He likes them in olive-oil dipping sauces & other pasta sauces, but not in salads or on pizza, etc. Thus, I must enjoy them alone - lol!!

As for the other ingredients - bite-size Romaine lettuce, fresh farmers market tomato chunks, English (aka seedless & relatively burpless) cucumber chunks, red onion (again, just on my portion - lol), garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas), a good sprinkling of dried oregano, freshly ground black pepper, & of course - crumbled feta cheese. Lightly tossed with some red wine vinegar, fresh lemon juice, & extra-virgin olive oil.

thats great!! you don't have to share!! LOL i like them with a nice hunk of crusty bread when i don't have salad. i don't like them cooked much, just out of the can. no black or green olives in your salad? sounds wonderful!

my granddaughter's bday/bbq was a lot of fun. she had burgers and also chicken on the grill. my daughter brought a potato dish. i took a big bowl of egg salad dip and fritos. big hit.

also made and took luscious lemon poke cake. that was just a great success. one guy said i am not a cake person, as he took his second piece. a very pleasant afternoon.

The ribs are just smoked with a dry rub put on before hand. Pasta salad is just oil, vinegar, some Italian spices and parmesan cheese.

This was our dinner. I didn't make two different kinds of chicken legs, since I was pressed for time. There was no recipe, but it was kind of a BBQ rub. It came out really tasty!

i am doing good. my foot and ankle swell if i am on it to much in the heat. it has really made me be careful when rising from a chair. thanks so much for the concern. sorry things are hectic for you. i do use the cane whenever i go outside. just gives me more confidence.
