What do we feast upon, saturday July 1

I don't see Cher here, so I'll start:
we're having snacks for dinner. Fresh guacamole and blue corn chips, devilled eggs, cucumber-scallion salad, and I bought some teriyaki chicken salad at the Green Turtle market, and we're watching an episode of The Great Briitish Baking Show.

1. Ordering Chinese tonight. We're prepping for a yurt camping trip the next two nights.

State parks have added yurts and somehow one was still available last week.
Momma has a serious menu planned for the next two days.

7. Yeeeepp!

The park system is building 50 yurts in locations from Kiptopeke on the Eastern Shore to Natural Tunnel in the mountains. Yurts are circular, semi-permanent tents traditionally used by nomads in Mongolia.

Until now, Kiptopeke has had the only yurt in the state park system. It was built nearly 20 years ago.

Its amazing how well its held up, said Clyde Cristman, director of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. Its been incredibly popular.

Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield County has the first new yurt to be completed in the $1.4 million project. Three others are in various stages of completion there, with a target date of early October. Reservations will open when a certificate of occupancy is secured.

3. Mexican

Fajitas, chips, salsa, skinny margaritas.

British baking...I don't know what they bake other than fish and chips, but I think that's fried.

5. I just happened by and couldn't resist....

Homemade, hand churned ice cream. Vanilla... that's all, nothing else. Just made it and I'm going to finish off the whole half+ gallon. Well, I may have to share... but that's it for me... well, maybe a little something with it... but that's all!
4 c. Whipping cream
4 c. Half and half
2 c. Sugar
4 tsp. Vanilla extract
2 pipe cleaners (artery cleaning)

14. Home made is the best!

I decided today to pull out my ice-cream maker and try some sherbet or sorbet. I love it nice and tart and I'm looking forward to some delicious combos like perhaps orange-lime!

15. I've never done sorbet but I've been wanting to try

making it sometime. Anyway, it's healthier; I could do away with the pipe cleaners.

8. Antipasto salad

That's it.

I was a bad boy yesterday, and went to a casino seafood buffet. While I ate my share, I wasn't impressed. The lobster was dry and overcooked. Everything else kinda followed from there. Curiosity satisfied, but I won't go to that one again.

13. Sounds like me

a couple years ago, it was my 70th BD and promised myself lobster. We went to a good restaurant up here and ordered, got 2 tails and I had to cut them with the steak knife.

I did tell the waitress on the 2nd one and she offered to get me another but my husband was done and I didn't want to wait so took what was left home for the dog.

Very disappointing but will try again some day.

9. Linguine with shrimp and white wine sauce

first-of-the-season green beans from the Farmers Market, and garlic bread. All gone now, except for a couple glasses of Pinot Grigio left, they may not make it past sunset either

I used some shallots in the sauce for the pasta. We got a handful of shallots (4-5 medium ones) for 35 cents, quite cheap at the Burmese store. (We get peeled garlic there too, a time saver yet retains the flavor, about $2 for just short of a pint jar full. Anyway, my question was, do you have any ideas for what to do with the rest of the shallots? I was going to pickle some as a relish, but would welcome other ideas.

10. I fixed a kick butt lamb roast yesterday.

I'm having some tacos with tzatziki and a touch of mint sauce. Also some avocado and a salad with some homemade Italian dressing. Maybe a few chips though I haven't decided which ones.

12. Chicken stir fry....half with rice noodles and half on Jasmine rice...usual vegies: little corn,

water chestnuts, broccoli, snow peas, scallions etc. Also, fresh cherries and iced coffee. Assorted Candy for dessert...to hot to bake. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac...so I am still getting used to a new way of cooking and eating. The meals listed here sound so good.
