I'm stopping for a big, fat spicy pork burrito at a local seasonal Tex-Mex joint. Cafeteria style seating, and you can BYOB. Hopefully Wegman's will have at least one sixer of Shiner Bock left!

A big, fat, spicy, pork burrito sounds wonderful.
 
I made a cheese omelet, served with Shish*tos and Indonesian Sweet Chili Sauce.

Tonight was catfish in foil pouches (with cucumber, red pepper, green onion, and a soy-sesame-ginger sauce), Thai noodles (with red pepper, peas and carrots in a teriyaki-peanut butter-honey sauce), and some morels my sister gifted me sauteed in butter. There were only four morels, but lord were they good!

Tacos last night...6 tacos: ground beef, red onion, cilantro, green taco sauce alternating with Kinders bbq sauce (yes, while I don't make gringo tacos (lettuce, cheese, tomato, sourcream, etc) I so like a sweet smokey bbq sauce to start with , and then progress to taco sauce to hot salsa...it was twilight so I grab a taco & paper plate and walk around the yard, looking at the fantastic view, while eating...repeat 5 more times...

I put 2 racks of back ribs and some homemade stuffed (Italian sausage, romano/parmesan, mozzarella, olive oil) portobello caps on the grill a little over an hour ago.  I'm using a higher (325 or so) temperature so they won't take that long to cook.  When they're getting close I'll light a second grill for some asparagus.

I was ecstatic! There's a super secret spot by my sister's house where they get a few every year, but not very many. The other day her kids found about 20 on their way home from school, so they shared.
 
Tonight I did Caramelized Onion & Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas, but I added spinach to the filling. They were way tasty, and WAY easier than my enchilada recipe. Added a bleu cheese, pear and walnut salad on the side, with buttermilk dressing.

Looks delicious!  But then, everyone has their "super secret spot" for morels!

Indian food at Shezan restaurant in Mountain View.  Naan, chana daal, aloo mattar, chicken korma, shrimp masala and some type of ground chicken thing.  Fun stuff.

We had guests tonight. The challenge was----one does not eat anything spicy or peppery, the other is on a sodium restricted diet. And of course I picked up something to make for other people Sunday night----and everyone cancelled. So I had two packages of turkey legs. Of course, all the recipes for smoking call for brining with SALT.
 
Instead, I mixed plain yogurt, apple juice, turmeric, minced garlic, allspice, sage, nutmeg and a small amount of real maple syrup. I marinated them for several hours and smoked them over oak.
 
I served a baby greens salad first.

 
The turkey wings smoked for almost two hours. In the last hour I put yams in to smoke too. This is how it looked.

 

They were nice, smoky and tasty. Didn't miss the salt!

4 plump chicken thighs, cooked over indirect heat on the grill for 1 hour 15 minutes...tender, juicy, flavorful...just a dry spice rub (my own mix) before putting on the grill, greased on one side with Kinder's bbq sauce in the last 10 minutes...

Think I may buy a couple of ribeyes for tonight's dinner.  I was gifted with a Cuisinart Griddler in January and have yet to take it out of the box.
 
Maybe.

LOL Ed! You are taking over Mar's puns!
 
Tonight I reheated some of the enchiladas from t'other day (the rest went in the freezer), served with some cracker salad and cottage cheese. It's been 150 years since I've had cracker salad; I forgot how much I love it.

Inspired by yellow curry at a Thai restaurant, I made a vegetable version for dinner. It had fresh cauliflower, broccoli and carrots, plus shallots, toasted cashews and Asian yellow curry powder, all simmered in light coconut milk and served over rice. A tiny bit of agave nectar (could use sugar, of course!) brought out the sweetness. I love this dish!!

The shrimp were good, the sauce was not to my liking.

It looks tasty, Mar. Sorry it didn't work out for you.
 
Tonight I cheated and opened a jar of sauerkraut from the store, because I had some smoked Polish sausage from the local market I really wanted to eat. Same location since the original owner emigrated here from Poland in 1933, third generation runs it now, made by hand.

No store bought hummus this weekend.  Listeria alert in California!

Listeria alert on hummus here, too. Also ground beef for e. coli. Luckily, we eat little ground beef and I make my own hummus.
 
Tonight I did: Spiced broiled chicken breast (oregano, rosemary, thyme, garlic & pepper), curried whole wheat couscous with walnuts and green onion, and a tomato-cucumber-Vidalia salad (with grapeseed oil, rice vinegar, agave nectar and fresh chives). I'm fat and happy.

Tonight I did some pecan chicken, molasses and ginger glazed carrots, and cottage cheese. The chicken needs tweaking, but it was a good start.

Felix - Nathalie Dupree has a pretty good recipe for chicken with pecans.  I don't know if it's online, but you're interested in the recipe, let me know.

For Memorial Day, I wrote an article about something that was important to me. 
We decided to have our Memorial Day Block Party today. It was nice, the neighbors all participated.

 
For dinner, one of our neighbors started smoking a pork butt at 9 pm last night. He made a North Carolina rub and made an Eastern North Carolina sauce to squeeze on it. He had us do it as tacos though. It was delicious.
A delicious broccoli slaw was on the side.
 
Another neighbor grilled carne asada for tacos.

 
 
I decided to do something different. I started a butterflied leg of lamb marinating last night. I used olive oil, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic, zaatar, ground cloves and nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne and black pepper and some sea salt. I smoke/grilled it for an hour over oak.

 
I chopped it into pieces.

 
In the meantime, I made some Greek yogurt from plain yogurt, added fresh dill, plenty of minced garlic, fresh mint, juice from a fresh lemon, Persian cucumbers and a touch of pepper to make a tzatziki sauce.

 
From the Persian market near me, I bought fresh pita.

 
I served the lamb shawarma to everyone. It turned out really good, especially with a few squirts of Sriracha sauce on it.

 

 

 
It was a nice day. We finished with some good Scotch, some Bourbon Whiskey and some tequila. An International meal!
Tomorrow will be a quiet day, remembering our family members who served and sacrificed so we could enjoy that great meal.

Thanks, Jim. Our dads both made a big difference in the war and I'm sure you'll be remembering your dad's sacrifice for his family and country tomorrow.

That was also a wonderful process and vision of this dish.

This is what our Memorial Day menu will consist of along with some Crab/Shrimp salad, plenty of drinks and a 3 layer chocolate cake for later.
 

 
Just found out that the Wife is also making her famous homemade potato salad!! 
 
The end result.....  in addition to what you see on this plate I also devoured a Turkey Burger loaded with cheese!
