Back in the Saddle, Again.

Would you like to know what I've made in the kitchen in the last two weeks? PB&J, coffee, turkey sandwiches, cheese and crackers, English muffins, about twenty glasses of wine, and too many bowls Ciao Bella sorbet (Passion Fruit is lighting up my life right now, and I don't even like dessert that much).

No trips to the grocery store have been made and nothing has been cooked around this place. We've been scrounging up meals or eating out. But, two weeks is usually my limit, usually the time I start getting the itch to make something delicious that makes Hugh laud my mad cooking skills. What can I say? Words of Affirmation is my love language.

So, here it is, the weekend plan:

Friday - Spicy Poblano Burgers with Pickled Red Onions and Chipotle Cream, Tomato and Cucumber Salad, Oven Fries, Surprise Dessert because Dessert is Hugh's love language (not really, he's a tie between Receiving Gifts and Physical Touch)

Saturday - Headed to the Farmer's Market in the morning, so the menu for the day is up in the air. But, if I had to guess I'd say: Bagel Melts for brunch and Summer Rolls for dinner.

Sunday - The M Cubed trio is kindly making their way up here for a quick visit to celebrate our nation's independence. And also our Fletch-iversary, but more on that later. As always, we can't wait to see them. There will be bocce ball, fireworks, and, most importantly, lots of food.

Tentatively, this is what we're eating: Pimento Cheese and Crackers, Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos, Pimm's Cups, Grilled Whole Butterflied Chicken with Gremolata, Blistered Corn, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, and Peach Pie (or Coconut Sheet Cake...Mandy? Preference?). A full food recap to come on Monday.

Happy Fourth of July! Happy Three Day Weekend! Happy, happy life. Enjoy it.
