I'm making these sandwiches from the pioneerwoman.com site. It's cubed steaks sliced into strips with onions, butter, worcestershire sauce and seasoned salt on a toasted sub bun with melted swiss cheese. They're to die for! I'm thinking of making fried potatoes or onion rings too.

Homecook, have you made the apple dumplings from the PW site? They are delicious and so easy. I let my 9 yr old grandson make them with my help.

I will grill the chicken, over direct heat, but the firepan will be as far away from the chicken as possible, and the lid will be closed. I won't use many coals, so it will take around 30 - 40 minutes to cook fully. I call it "Smoke Roasted" as it's in contact with the smoke, and the lid is closed, but it's not the high intense heat of grilling. It's somewhere inbetween smoking and grilling.

The end result is tender, juicy, well-seasoned chicken. Yummy! All 10 lbs will dissappear by the time dinner is done.
Sounds great. How many people do you expect to feed with 10 lbs.?

I made one of those Trade Joe's frozen Tart Alsace - its a ham, gruyre and carmelized onion tart. I then made a salad of baby greens tossed with gorgonzola, little yellow tomatos, figs in a balsamic dressing. Quite yummy.

Scallops in brown butter on a bed of baby spinach, and a salad of tomatoes, almonds and Manchego with a rosemary vinaigrette.

The border liked the soup so much he packed the rest up for his lunch tomorrow, not realizing it was for all of us to eat tonight! No worries, DH didn't know I made it so picked up some wonderful sun-dried tomato & basil marinated pork chops and some salad. It was delicious!
