    106°F here yesterday :eek: , so we had a very late dinner outside on the patio. Thai-marinated chicken breast & corn-on-the-cob on the grill with a nice Caesar salad.

    The home-made beef bologna came out great (7-8 hours in the smoker), so I sliced some up this morning and had bologna 'steaks' with breakfast!

    After a very busy Sunday at work, I come home whipped. But it sure is nice to come home and be surprised with something spectacular for dinner!!
    My lovely wife put together quite a spread for Sunday dinner: Basque paella, crusty bread and a lovely red wine. Sure, I consider myself blessed! :)

    I told her it looked so great, I have to photograph it (after 30 years, she knows my quirks & remains unfazed).
    Artichokes, saffron, mushroom, spanish ham & basque chorizo & even some whitefish...wow.:drool:

    I've been on a diet for the last few months. So no fun from food for me. I am almost a vegetarian recently. I do enjoy a Margarita (frozen or other wise) or Corona on a regular basis. Ribs are nice every once in a while as a treat.

    So Glenn, is there a timeframe for the diet (date circled on the calendar?), or are you sticking to it until you 'feel' you've hit the mark?
    Summer is BBQ weather, so meatless diets can be all the more difficult for the next few months....:angry017:

    I highly recommend you check out Mexican beers which aren't terrible :p, such as Dos Equis and Modelo, especially Negra Modelo.

    I'm working on a target weight. I've done pretty well so far. But it's the last few pounds until I can get back to my "fighting" weight. Would do better if I gave up the alcohol too for the diet but that isn't going to happen. You've got to have some fun. :)

    Some people like Corona. But this beer list is dubious because Miller Lite is number one. :happy068:

    Nothing! Just coffee and water for 24hr. Part of my 5+2 diet.

    They had a sample station at Spec's with this barrel aged tequila - Izkali.

    It was incredibly smooth, I now enjoy sippin a couple of ounces in the evening before bedtime, it's too good to put in a mixed drink or margarita.

    Peaches, peaches...and more peaches.
    Since our one peach tree has an incredible abundance this year, my wife & I are scrambling to utilize the fruit in every possible way.
    Tarts, cobblers, jams & marmalades, sliced & dried, fruit leather, canned, and even pickled in brandy! :)

    So, yes, I am having peaches on some way, shape or form today!

    Have you tried grilled peach slices? They'll go nicely with a steak. You'll want them "just" ripe or slightly under. The peaches, that is.

    As for me...

    eating: an oatmeal cookie (not even homemade :( )
    drinking: not nearly enough since it's the first day back to work after vacation.

    I'm supposed to have a friend come over today... but if he flakes out on me, I will still fire up the grill and have some bacon, chedder, and jalape~no brats. It's good hangover food.
