Dinner for August 17, 2010

Yes, it's true! I'm writing the same evening as the dinner! Ok. Here we go:

Ham, Gouda, Muenster... need I say more?

How about deli-sliced ham, thinly sliced; sliced cheddar, thinly sliced whole wheat bread (a loaf, not the kind you use for sandwiches); bruschetta; rosemary & garlic infused olive oil; sundried tomato & basil infused olive oil. YUM! Bread, cheese, meat, EVOO (inser Rachael Ray's Yumm-o!" here) - what more could you ask?? Perhaps, maybe, a Fume' Blanc? Got it!

Oh wait! I forgot to say what we talked about! Well, tonight's conversation was very limited as we were watching "Wipeout" on t.v. The t.v. is rarely on during dinner but today was an exception since J didn't go to martial arts (he smashed his foot today during wood stacking) and hubby went to bed early.

Pudding is next, yet the boys don't know it. They are currently watching the tail end of the show and I made chocolate pudding (a Jell-o mix) as we have some Cool Whip in the fridge. Yumm-o!

Dinner of August 16

Yes, it's been a while since I last posted. It really is hard to do this every day, but I'll try to do better.

Last night we had a late dinner as hubby and I were discussing our upcoming camping trip and deciding on the menu. We were also waiting on the barbecue to get hot. And off topic - I'm starving!! I need food badly. It's 10 a.m. and I haven't eaten yet and here I am, blogging about food. Bad idea! Back to my story...

We ate our dinner out on the deck. It was divine! It's been really hot lately (in the 90s) but yesterday was in the upper 80s and by the time we ate dinner (8:30 p.m.), the bats were flying and it had cooled down quite a bit and was actually comfortable.

There was a leftover green salad (with some radishes and cucumber thrown in) from another day, and chicken kabobs. I don't know what hubby had rubbed onto them but they were out of this world! I know he buys the Weber seasonings, but I don't know if he used that on them or not. He also found some yummy seasonings at Dollar Tree - sheesh, don't buy expensive seasonings - they are not worth it a lot of the time unless you KNOW from experience. Try Dollar Tree out.

We talked about the camping trip and warned the boys not to go in the fast-moving river. We warned them about wildlife and not to feed the bears. Hubby said that all food must be kept in the truck when not in use so as not to attract wild animals. Watch my kids want to see a bear and leave out a Cheeto or something!

Anyway, we were outside until about 10 p.m. or so, just talking and eating and having a good time. And yes, the bats were out and eating the bugs and hopefully chomping away on the flying termites. We ate outside the previous night and a big termite landed on the napkin that was lying on my plate after I was finished eating. Eww!
