You've been hiding a pool from us? I think it's time for a pool party.

It's cooled off here today with some thunderstorms rolling through. Hopefully they'll bring relief rather than grief to the firefighters. I'm still feeling like it's too miserable to cook because now it's humid, ugh. Gonna grill a dog and some lettuce. Yup, I found nitrate free uncured dogs so I'm thinking they're okay for me to eat.

Yes, everyone, I have a pool !!! :) and I think you should all come soak in it, but I have to report it is a balmy 82 in there--not really refreshing at all. Might as well be in a tub.

Dinner tonight is going to be sparse ---as I ate like a total oinkoid yesterday. :ph34r:

Tomato soup

Nectarine

That's it. I'm serious.

Daughter asked for pork chops in mushroom soup gravy so that's what we are having. Basmati rice and fresh garden peas with a bit of mint and a fresh veggie plate.

I'm dog/housesitting again in the country so brought things with me so I would not have to cook here (cross contamination and so on). So, I'm having:

- potato salad (darn it - forgot my capers at home!!)

- baby back ribs with a smoked ancho barbecue sauce I made a few days ago

- homemade baked beans (again)

My friend, you make "leftovers" sound like four-star dining. :)

Those baked beans would have made my Bostonian Gramma swoon.

And potato salad without capers--while it may make some of us say "waaa?" why do we need capers exactly?? --we both know it will not suffer much without them.

I bet it is drool-worthy. :)

Kuddos for punting while away from home!!! I did it for the first time in March for a whole month---and it's not easy.

Wednesday we had hamburgers with guacamole and ice cream before dinner and after.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Thursday it was reversed Sheppard's pie with homemade pickles.

Friday I made "asia" : sauteed chicken breast, rice mixed with little be of baked beans and chopped scallions, French fries and fresh cucumber.

And today we had meat empanadas. I used dough from my recipe for apple empanadas. OMG!!! Delicious. My husband ate 5. I like it better then regular dough. Later ice cream again.

Capers are pretty common at our house and at yours, too, I bet. I just adore the brininess they add to millions of things! It certainly is not easy doing this away from home. It takes a lot of planning. I did it often last summer as well but brought far more of my stuff here. This time I cooked as much as possible in advance to simply re-heat. The heatwave was in the forecast and this log house (a B&B, actually) is stunning but has no A/C. I found out where they hide all their chips, cheezies, etc! At first I was happy, binged, then felt bad. :( An entire month of this extensive planning would be very difficult, IH, and I'm proud you did it. :D Wait - I sort of did it in Croatia in May.

Tonight I am having:

Chicken and Dumplings I made last week - sans capers!! :P

Broccoli and Carrot Slaw

Am kicking myself for not bringing out fixings to make fizzy lemonade. :( And the more I think about it, the more I NEED it!

I made this today. It's the Liverwurst. Another thing to add to our club.

Those are GORGEOUS! They look so perfect and plump. What dishes and condiments do you serve them with?

Tonight was a stir fry of veggies, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, onions. We added some pineapple chunks, shrimp and chicken. No sauce just a touch of ginger and garlic, wicked good! Rice on the side, one of my go to dishes, there's not much to it but it sure hits the spot! Probably some fruit and yogurt with a few almonds on top for dessert. :)

If I want to eat them for dinner, then I will make mashed potatoes and on side one of my homemade pickled salads (cabbage mixes), or pickles. I will bake them in oven, or in a frying pan.

If I want to eat them for lunch, then I will have them just with bread and again with pickles, or something spicy and mustard.

Liverwursts are in my country popular. If somebody makes old fashioned wedding, then they are together with kolbasy a part of the menu. Not for dinner, but for lunch, before you go to church. Then we will eat them with a Challah bread, pickles and mustard.
