Recent Meals

We've been enjoying some nice meals recently. Elaine and Larry joined us in one very nice outdoor dinner. We barbecued a whole spatch-cocked chicken (love that word). With it we ate more of the quinoa salad with oranges, raisins, and lemons. I mentioned the ice cream with warm chocolate sauce that Elaine made. On Thursday we tried a new diner that offers Mexican-Cuban food -- pretty pictures, not that great of food, though. Tonight we barbecued some skewers with tenderloin, red peppers, onions, and whole garlic cloves.

And now, it's the end of July.

I like the glaze on the bowl of ice cream....Ellen. I'm off to St. Louis tomorrow. Hope you are doing well.

I love spatch cooked chicken when I can get it to work properly. Wher is the new diner? I love cuban food and would give it a shot.

Jen -- The new diner is on State Street, called Bori mex. They only have Cuban food on weekends -- the Mexican food I tried was just ok.

It's gotten a lot of attention, including in the Observer. The location (a bit south of Produce Station) has been through a lot of incarnations and nobody has made a success there.
