Just got back from a picnic for a friend’s birthday party- great food- shish kabobs, numerous salads, cous cous, etc. It was a really good time and the bitches (I love yelling “C’mere bitches” or “C’mere girls” and having them both come running) were mostly behaved- Lily was, as always, a perfect angel, and everyone agreed Rosie was so much better from a few weeks ago, although she went into snarls when the young lab at the party got up in her grill to play. Got home and my brother had sent me some new pictures of Boghan:
I’ve decided I am calling him the Boghanator. When I met him the other day, I was struck by the pure rich chocolatey beauty of his eyes and that big beautiful brown nose.
Also, don’t forget the Thursday night menu:
I had some chipotle peppers left over from the Baby Back Ribs with Citrus Glaze last week, so I thought I’d pull this marinade out for this Thursday’s menu. Since it’s a 3-day holiday for many, I figured grilling would be a safe bet. I love 4th of July, that and Thanksgiving are my favorite holidays. Time to break out 1776, do some grilling, have a picnic and enjoy the fireworks. Really, what’s not to love? All week long I’ve been posting 4th of July recipes, so check them out if you’re looking for ideas. I’ll be making the Drunken Chicken Appetizers for sure (and I’m pretty sure I’m soaking more than the skewers in bourbon). What plans do you have for the holiday?
On the board tonight:
1. Adobo Sirloin
2. Garlic Roasted Potatoes
3. Cucumber & Zucchini Spears tossed with Italian dressing
4. Summer Fruit w/Mint
I love everything on that menu and the only thing missing is tomatoes. I may have to hunt down Tamara and swoon her. Adobo is such a good taste.
Also, everyone there agreed that you all are great people (they are all readers). I concurred. Group hug.
Must run- Tunch is bitching.
