Yep a yellow watermelon. Not all that tasty compared to the red. But the orange tomatoes are fantastic.

I've had many a year when I didn't stake my tomatoes (I'm a very casual gardener) and as long as it wasn't a wet year they did just fine.

Last week we had a barbecue and I made carnitas with homemade tortillas, salsa verde, a red cabbage and scallion slaw, and two apricot upside-down cakes with vanilla ice cream. Today I am continuing with the Mexican and making cochinita pibil with xni-pec --- Yucatecan achiote-braised pork wrapped in banana leaves with a pickled red onion and habanero (Thai chiles is what I was able to get though) relish. Homemade tortillas, corn with lime and manchego, and an avocado and tomato salad. Blackberry slump/grunt with vanilla ice cream for dessert (I wanted to serve it with fresh poured cream instead, but I refuse to buy ultra-pasteurized cream, and that's all I can get here unless I remember to steal cream from work).
TRBL and Curlyminx like this.

Chicken tenders and rice. I have to say for frozen chicken (breaded tenders/breaded breasts) Bell & Evans are really really good. And I am not a frozen breaded chicken fan.

I use the breaded breasts to make chicken parm.

Grilled chicken Mexican-style. Spinach salad. Brownies for dessert.

I wish my family would get over thinking we need dessert every meal. Special occasions, sure. But no one needs the calories... they look at me like I'm crazy and make snide comments when I don't eat any, but especially now with my forced inactivity - if I ever want to look good on a horse I need to skip it!

I just made s'mores rice krispie treats for dessert tonight and it was a shame there was some I had to eat that was left stuck to the mixing bowl. The things I do!

Fresh caught salmon with teriyaki sauce, tomatoes and basil from the farmers market, and squash from our garden (& Trader Joes rice). Perfect summer dinner!!

How do you like it? I've looked at them a couple of times, but am on the fence. I wondered if they take a while to dry out? I use a microfiber towel underneath an OXO plastic flat grid like drying rack thingie (technical term, swears).

My mouth is watering at the pics and descriptions (well, except for those crap sandwiches).
Last nite was dinner at Wegman's grocery store (yes one of my favorite places to eat is a grocery store).
Sushi, fried rice, eggrolls, samosas. And beer.

Definitely the technical term . So far so good with the drying pad. To be honest, I haven't paid much attention to how it compares to using towels, besides that it looks nicer. We have the plastic tray that catches most of the water, I just use the pad to catch the drips from the glasses that hang off the side.
