Tonight we are having pizza potatoes. It's my daughter's 5th birthday and she wanted pepperoni pizza for dinner so she decided that we would have a meat "pizza" and put pepperoni and turkey bacon with tomatoes on a baked potato "crust". And I think I may try to make a microwave brownie for her birthday dessert, if it doesn't work she still gets her cake on Saturday though.

Awesome that you can grill! Hopefully your move went very well.


Just saw this comment, so sorry for the late reply. Thanks! The move was a little stressful but it is all over now. Most things are unpacked, a few things are still finding homes. My only snag right now is my dishwasher isn't working. The repair person already came once. At first it didn't work at all--no water was comign out, only steam. After the repair guy left, it ran fine for two washes. on the third wash water started pouring out the front of it and nearly flooded the kitchen! Repair guy is supposed to come back tommorrow morning and if they can't fix it we may get a new one (this was newly installed when we moved in).

Anyway, the grill has seen a lot of action the past few days due to my dishwasher being broken. Since I'm hand washing all the dishes I want as few pans to wash as possible. I love to cook, but I hate dishes!

So the past couple days on the grill we have had steak, Ahi Tuna steaks with mixed veggies steamed in foil packets, and chicken kabobs. Tommorrow I'm doing either bison or turkey burgers if the dishwasher's still broken, and I might even get paper plates and use plastic ware, LOL!

Glad to hear you are all moved in - hope you get into your routine soon. Too bad about your dishwasher. I am not exactly fond of doing dishes, either, but have so many specialty cooking things that cannot go into it. The only times we use it is when we have guests over. I cook so much that I must wash dishes a few times a day (i.e. cannot fit my 17 lb mortar and pestle in there nor will I put my AllClad in there - same with my good knives).

Nice to have you back! :)

Hey gluten-free Manna,

Just wanted to make sure you know about the Cargil Ground Turkey recall. If not, here's a link. http://www.latimes.c...0,1439391.story

Good luck with the dishwasher.

We grill year round here. I prep and do the sides, my partner does the grilling.

We had grilled ground sirloin onion burgers on UDIs buns with sweet potatos and salad and sweet cheeries dipped in chocolate sauce.

Anyway, please make sure your ground turkey isn't from the bad lot. I skimmed the article, but I'm allergic to turkey so didn't pay close attention, just thought of it when I saw you were considering it for tomorrow.

Thanks for the warning! I haven't bought my meat yet. I was planning on getting it tommorrow morning. I don't know if the recalled brands are in my stores or not but I guess I will go with bison or chicken just to be safe. I'm sure we'll grill year round too now that we have a place we are allowed to grill (before we were in an apt that wouldn't even let us store a grill on the premises).
