Not sure what to make tonight - husband is working and Little Man has a tummy ache. He'll probably do something bland like applesauce and butter bread. For me? Maybe some pasta with bean and spinach sauce that we've in the fridge.

We're taking Little Man to the movies, so I think we'll do something quick like linguine with marinara and Italian sausage.

The new grill finally arrived! So we had some of my family over and grilled up a TON of food. Chicken breasts and thighs, a buffalo steak, hot dogs, sausages, sweet corn, a large sweet onion, summer squash, pineapple disks with balsamic glaze, nectarines and peaches - half with balsamic glaze half without and on skewers cherry tomatoes, strawberries, and grapes. We also made a green salad. I was super impressed by how much we were able to get out of that grill! I'm really happy with it!

Today for a b-day celebration we had mostly authentic Chicago hot dogs: poppy seed buns, Vienna Beef dogs (grilled rather than boiled, though), tomato, onion, pickle spear, sport peppers, celery salt, and relish (still looking for a source of that neon green relish that doesn't cost a mint or come in 2-gallon tubs). I did buy a gallon jar of the hot peppers, though! That was a gift for the birthday girl.

I'm not even hungry for dinner after that! :-)

The four of us had large salds with greens from our garden, topped with home made feta cheese, pastured turkey and homemade salad dressing. Right now the littles are snacking on the batch of heart jerkey I spent all day dehydrating, gotta get back to putting up veggies from the garden but gotta sneak in that organ meat too

Decided that tonight will be yakisoba and tomorrow bean and vegetable soup - it's summer but raining constantly! - but not sure about the rest of the week.

Everyone's dinner sounds way, way better than mine. Business travel this week, and my hotel has basically non-existent room service. If you want a vacuum sealed sandwich, bag of chips and a $10 glass of wine you're in luck. If not - no go. So I thought I'd over delivery of something, but it's Monday so nearly every take out place is closed.

I ended going to a supermarket, thinking I could get a nice cold noodle salad or a few pieces of fried chicken and wedge fries (or something!) from the prepared foods section, but ugh. Not in this town.

I ended up with canned chicken noodle soup, microwavable chicken pot stickers and a selection of mixed olives and marinated mushrooms. WTH.

Business dinner at a proper restaurant tomorrow night, so I probably won't starve.

In true form, my plan changed already

Ended up making rice bowls with tofu, cucumbers, and carrots topped with Vietnamese dressing.

Tonight I will use the beans, but those will be in tacos for an impromptu dinner with friends I organized yesterday. Popped into the Mexican market yesterday and got pork, tortillas, fresh salsa, avocados, etc. Now hoping it won't rain AGAIN so we can sit on the porch...

Hope the restaurant is good!! Although from the description of the town, it might be of the all-you-can-eat breadsticks variety?

Our plans changed too. We're doing the miso ramen with bok choy tonight. Last night we did iceberg and cucumber with shredded chicken, pistachios and carrot/ginger dressing.

Yeah, karma worked out in my favor - classic Irish pub. Excellent fish and chips, and too much beer. I'm getting to old to work hard and play hard in the same day!

There's been a request for chicken curry with garlic quinoa. So even though I've made it fairly recently we'll have that tonight. It's a crock pot meal so that's nice. It's super muggy here so I'm not exactly sad to skip the oven today!

Still on the road - extra crispy dark meat and mashed potatoes with gravy from KFC. Notably - NO ALCOHOL! Tomorrow night I'll end up with airport food and then it's back to home cooking!

Tonight we're having cold roast chicken thighs, rice, and zucchini.

Tonight? Either a frozen meal or black bean tacos. I have black beans in the crock pot right now. Tomorrow - sandwiches with pickles and chips on the side at the beach!

Next week - gluten-free dinners for a week or so while my in-laws are here. I have a few dinners planned for when I cook (MIL likes to cook, too): brown rice spaghetti and meatballs, Cobb salad, probably tacos again, but this time with crock pot pulled pork.
