On the recommendation of my friend Joanna, making these chipotle chicken bites but I'll use boneless chicken tenderloins since I have those on hand.

Not sure what to serve with it yet.  Possibly a lettuce wrap?

Another gorgeous day here! Smile Our Autumn is definitely making up for an extremely hot summer. 62° and sunny again! How long can this last????

We are having one of our chimneys rebuilt and relined today, so it's a bit of a distraction going on. We decided when they are finished we will just put some burgers on the grill and have a Caesar salad on the side.

Maryann, do you have In & Out Burger joints in your area??? I just sent a friend a knock off version of their burgers. I'm so anxious to try it. Would you like the recipe, also?>

Something to go.  Maybe In-n-Out.  Wink

We have to be up at the local community college at 6:00pm for "Family Night" to welcome new students and parents who will be attending in the fall.  Not sure how this has happened - that Michael is preparing for college.  I think we will all feel much better after this very informational meeting.  None of us do well with change.

This lunch was surprisingly good - Used another of the Asian Dinner fiasco items. the Mongolian Beef mixed with rice and served on a stir-fry bean sprout dish. (the b. sprouts which were supposed to be Brussels sprouts... Dodgy  ) - found a quick stir fry recipe from Ming Tsi, so simple but really tasty!!

SIDE - BEAN SPROUTS - Classic Bean Sprout Stir Fry
Peanut oil to cook
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
1 Tbs minced ginger
1 Tbs sliced garlic
1 lb bean sprouts, hair removed
Salt and black pepper to taste
1. In a very hot wok, coat well with oil and add scallions, ginger and garlic.
2. Season and stir.
3. Quickly add the bean sprouts and stir-fry, flipping the sprouts around quickly.
4. Check for seasoning.
5. Serve immediately.
6. May serve with rice.
7. PLATING Serve on a small oval platter.

I added a little garlic chili sauce and garnished with cilantro.

I'm being tempted to order this whole mess again - the l/os are so much fun to play with. Smile

Andrew and I couldn't make up our minds about the Black and Blue Chicken Wrap and wings today for lunch, so we got both and split them.  The wraps are HUGE, so it was a great idea.  I've started ordering my wings plain, and I get various sauces on the side...buffalo, house blend teriyaki, and Carribian Jerk (HOT!).

That looks delicious, Jean! You sure do think of the most interesting things to do with whatever it is you have to work with!  I'm going to save that recipe.

No, we do not have "In-n-Out" burger joints here, but I sure wish we did because it's hard to get a decent fast food burger around here. I just don't care for most of the chains and we have them all!  Once in a while we drive thru Rally's for a burger.  

Recipe for copycat "In-n-Out", yes please and thank you! Smile

I cannot believe how time flies! Michael will be starting college? Wow. That is wonderful and will open up a whole new world to him!
FYI, my oldest grandbaby, Katie, will be starting high school next year!
