If you were waiting for me to post recipes for gazpacho or shrimp saltimbocca, both recipes are up now. My apologies for the lame (let’s face it, lazy) delay!

Last night I whipped out my new Weber Poultry Roaster again, man I love that thing. Absolutely no mess or fuss – I opened the grill to baste the bird (chicken) a few times, but that’s about it – et voila, a browned, crunchy little lovely, with some nice drippings at the base to turn into a bit of sauce. With sauteed broccoli and sugar snap peas alongside (I’ve got a thing for snap peas this summer, briefly sauteed in a bit of olive oil or butter until just heated through, so sweet and crunchy), it made a tasty din for the Wild Wednesday crowd.

Tonight, as I mentioned, dinner at Morton’s with Zim’s and Mack’s to celebrate Aaron’s birthday. Happy Birthday Aaron! My plan is to bow out early and head over to catch the end of Nathan’s baseball game – he’s had a little post-season tourney pop up. See you there, I’ll be the one in a dress gnawing a side of beef in the stands. Rarrr…

Moderate it: oh Lord, Morton’s is the most immoderate place on the planet. I man, I eat meat, grunt.It’s all delicious, but even the potatoes are gargantuan – where do they find those things? I don’t know what I’m ordering, probably a fishy appetizer of sorts – I’m making beef tenderloin on the grill tomorrow night, so no steak, sniff. I do love their steamed veggies, with just a teeny bit of Bearnaise (The Kill). Hopefully right about when those naughty hash browned potatoes appear, I’ll be driving to Nathan’s game…
