The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Mexican Radio

Last night called for a quick and easy meal after a kind of tough day-- tough week, actually. I wanted to have this ready so that when Amy got home from work we could just eat, watch Top Chef and crash. I miss Lee Anne.

We had most of the ingredients on hand, so this just called for prepping and slicing. We used a basic cooked salsa, and I made some yellow rice. I didn't feel like making tortillas, so I bought a bag. We also used romaine lettuce, refried beans, shredded cheese, sliced grape tomatoes, scallions and chopped orange bell peppers (5/13-- I forgot pickled jalapenos!!). While the rice cooked I cleaned up the living room, lit a few candles, and dinner was served. No muss, no fuss.

Do yourself a favor and check out Hank Thompson's "Standing On The Outside Looking In Now" in the songs to 'que by.

Senor H.S. that looks like a light n' tasty early summer treat of a meal. Nice setting too, for the post work wind down.

Today I plan to make a large pot of Oregon Asparagus Soup, a Local Strawberry - Rhubarb Rustic Tart (for dessert tomorrow at a friend's house) and the filling for some Chicken Potstickers.

Ms.K and Miss H will assist with the wrapping later in the day (post gardening hour).

Our best to you and Aim!

Thanks, brother man. The mexican salad is so quick and flexible-- I love having all the flavors, textures and colors combine in each bite-- there's always another little flavor popping.

Sounds like you have a lovely day of cooking planned. Wish we were there to see the dumpling assembly line-- especially Ms. Banana getting in on the act....

Hope you guys are great and that we get to see you all soon....
