We have a meeting tonight, so hot turkey and Swiss cheese sandwiches on Chicago Italian bread. Yum!

Hmmmmm

I made rosemary sea salt soft pretzels with cheese sauce.
Oh, that sounds great.

Tonight is Lamb Leg steaks and Indian style cauliflower with Naan.

Beefcake. It's for a scavenger hunt. Beef, all dolled up to look like cake.

Also lasagna, because beefcake will be hard to make to feed enough people. There's maybe 7 people coming over for dinner.

Last night, fries and a hummus plate (late lunch) and craft beer.
Tonight, my MIL is making vegetable soup, and we'll have some beer and chips. I'm meeting my husband's hometown friends for the first time, and we bought drinks and snacks for them.

Vacation diet = crummy.

Breaded pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, salad.  I'm also going to bread some zucchini slices and put them in the deep fryer so the breading is really crispy.

Chopped salad with chickpeas, hard boiled egg and vinaigrette dressing and a slice of fresh sourdough with butter.

Ribs (we got a grill a couple of weeks ago; we've been grilling everything in sight since), potato salad, grillin' beans and salad with some nice cold beer. I love summer.

enchiladas, spanish rice and refried beans
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

Salads with shrimp. Just DH and I, since DS is constantly occupied this weekend.

People who haven't visited my home before are always amused at the juxtaposition of two cookbooks I use. Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child and The "I Hate To Cook" Cookbook by Peg Bracken sit next to each other because they represent the range of my culinary interests, which seem to bounce between the two.

A couple of days ago I happened to pick up the latter book to browse through it in bed and found myself thinking, "Not bad" about a few of the recipes including the first one, Sweep Steak. I have bought the steak, the dry Lipton Onion Soup Mix, and a can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, and all are now in the oven as I speak. I'm actually looking forward to trying this along with some corn on the cob later today.
