Because barbaque is delicious?

My DH is smoking ribs for tomorrow night. So I am picking up dinner from the gourmet market across the street from my office today. I think it will be mostly appetizers because thief cheese bar is to die for and the deli case has three different types of grape leaves.

That is is Valentines Mommy.  Not to mention it makes the best pizza topping

My living room thermostat is reading 29.5 C and it is hotter in the kitchen.  How I long for air conditioning.

We went to a pub and had awesome 'chips,' and I had a sandwich piled with avocado, fried onions, tomato, lettuce and provolone (I think), and my husband had a veggie burger.
I could eat an avocado a day if they were cheaper, I think!

I made NPR's blueberry dumplings. They were absolutely amazing (and leftovers made a great breakfast).

The only downside is they look like the thing that killed Tasha Yar.

It is the policy of the United States Navy to neither confirm nor deny the presence of nuclear weapons aboard its vessels.

Oooh that sounds delish.  I've bookmarked that recipe.

I was helping a friend with a sewing project, so her fiance made us risotto, stuffed zucchini, salad from their garden & lemon cheesecake with strawberry topping. It's a good thing I like her so much, otherwise I might have to steal her man!

Did you use Guy Fieri's recipe or create your own. Yes I will admit I did a google search as soon as I saw what you made... it sounds lovely and I suspect I will be cooking up my own version soon!

Miso soup with spinach. Seems like I make it once every 1-2 weeks these days.

Apple-raisin muffins made this morning might be all I eat today, which wouldn't be tragic.

I used Guy's recipe as a starting point, but I've adapted it over time. It's yummy!

After I get off work, and do our food shopping for the week, we are having something simple tonight.

Roast beef and Bleu cheese panini with wedge salads.

Wound up with sweet and sour tofu (homemade marinade with fresh pineapple) and broccoli over quinoa. Better idea than muffins, probably.

The supermarket I went to on Saturday had turkey legs on offer, so I'm slow cooking it in the oven covered in jerk spice mix and a bit of water.  In a bit (i.e when I can face going into the kitchen again) I'll add in some tomatoes, onions and peppers.  I'll probably serve it with coconut rice and green beans.

Tonight is custom skillet pizzas and salad with Ciabatta bread toasted and topped with the butter-filled provolone I have.
