Tony and I were commenting that last night was the perfect night – right temperature, no wind, no bugs. If we could find a place that is like last night all the time, I am pretty sure we’d move in a heartbeat!
We decided to do the wings on the grill – Tony added applewood chips to the grill – it gave the wings such a unique flavor!
Since the wings were not in direct heat, they were really moist, but the skin wasn’t crispy, so I picked the skin off of mine (which was probably a good idea anyway!). I decided to throw one on the barbie to crisp it up!
For my side dish, I took my inspiration from Heidi – I didn’t follow it exactly because I didn’t have plain yogurt, but I substituted fat free cottage cheese in the dressing and it worked out fine! And I didn’t use pine nuts, but toasted almonds and sadly I am out of goat cheese, so that was omitted as well.
Ed loves being outside, but he was exhausted by the time we came inside – poor boy! We forget he’s almost 10 years old!
And Tony enjoyed a cigar – we probably sat outside until 8:30!
I woke up too late to make another breakfast pizza but will definitely make it this weekend – Tony even thought it sounded good! So I popped an apple in the microwave – I just hit the “fresh vegetable” button and it worked perfectly. My “stuffing” was .25 ounces toasted almond and 1 ounce of pumpkin flax granola, topped with 1 ounce of cheese.
This is the perfect flavor combo for me – the sweetness of the apple, the savory cheese and salty nuts!
Thanks again for all your kind words for Hannah yesterday – you guys rock!
Morning break is up – come back for Quinoa Spinach Lasagna!
