Licking my wounds at home tonight alone... Ok, I'm pouting. Long story that doesn't matter, but resulted in something fabulous... A fresh basil cucumber martini accompanied by jalapeņo havarti, melted Brie and rosemary crackers. What did y'all have? Still hungry and looking for ideas!

Looks delicious!!

I'm in the process of making my son some shrimp fried rice.

We had country style steak, biscuits, and fresh green beans and potatoes we grew. I had forgotten how amazing fresh potatoes taste!!

Hmmm... Fried rice! Excellent idea!

Sorry the picture is SO big! I can't seem to adjust it so well when posting from my phone!

The only problem I have with the pic is that I can't get to that Brie!!!

Can you give me the martini recipe? That looks AMAZING!

stroppy_wanadoo posted 7/30/2014 21:41 PM

The recipe was an experiment... Something along the lines of the following (and completely guessing at amounts!):

quarter cup of fresh basil, broken into pieces
quarter cup of cucumber juice (I put 1/4 cucumber in blender and strained out pulp)
Ounce of fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Shot of gin
Shot of triple sec

Shake over ice and drink!

Thanks! I'm going to try it!

We had cheeseburgers. Opted for the thin style cooked on a super hot griddle tonight (as opposed to the thicker, grilled variety). Also, home-made shoestring fries with season salt. It was fabulous after the first cheer practice of the YAFL football season (is it October yet? Lol).

We had:
Spaghetti w/ homemade sauce and homemade meatballs.

Birthday cake for dessert.

Nilla wafers and Blue Moon...
I don't have a problem...

I continue to be so hungry this morning. Every single one of these things sounds good to me! Might have to do cheeseburgers for dinner... something greasy sounds WONDERFUL right now! (Uh, maybe I drank way too many veggies last night!)

I tried a new recipe last night. OMG SO GOOD.

You can basically use any vegetables that you want. I used red, orange, and yellow peppers, baby carrots, roma tomatoes, and a vidalia onion.

We had baked potatoes on the side, but next time I want to serve it over couscous or a tabbouleh salad.

stroppy_wanadoo posted 7/31/2014 09:55 AM

Oh... that chicken looks awesome!

musiclovingmom posted 7/31/2014 14:06 PM

S-W, believe it or not, our cheeseburgers weren't greasy. I know, I'm no fun. Made them with super lean ground elk with a tiny bit of ground beef just so they'd hold together. Hope your greasy cheeseburger hits the spot though :)

Last night I had a small (sized for a lunchbox) bag of Lays Potato Chips followed by a small bag of Cheetos Extra Crispy.


Tonight I'm hoping for a big Spring Mix salad with fresh basil and garden tomatoes, but I'm not promising anything. I still have a small bag of Doritos in the pantry.

Pizza. Delivered. I almost wore myself out opening the box. And don't even get me started on the clean up.

Steamed cauliflower and Cabbage Balushka. (cabbage, onions, egg noodles - Hungarian dish) YUM!

LosferWords posted 7/31/2014 22:12 PM

Mr. Goodbar tonight. Dinner of champions.
