June 12 of 12

It's good to be back after not being able to post last month. Welcome to my June installment of 12 of 12. Thanks to Chad for this great idea. Check out his website to see what everyone else did today. When I uploaded my pictures, I noticed a food theme. I guess the rest of my day was extremely boring. Enjoy!

11:30 am Mesa, AZ - I was out of town this week so while I was doing admin work and typing cases, I caught up on watching recorded shows. This was the Ballywood dance on So You Think You Can Dance. It's one of my favorite genres.

12:30 pm Mesa, AZ - Part of my lunch. Ham rollups stuffed with chive cream cheese and cucumber. Don't make a face, it's really good. Plus Diet Hansens soda is the best.

3:30 pm Mesa, AZ - The most evil of all chores, laundry. I hate folding clothes with a passion.

6:30 pm Gilbert, AZ - Off to Fry's to get some food for dinner.

7:30 pm Gilbert, AZ - Turned on the D'backs game and was happy to see they were leading already.

7:30 pm Gilbert, AZ - The sun setting behind some palms.

8:00 pm Gilbert, AZ - Part of dinner. New York strips on sale for $3.47 per pound!!

8:00 pm Gilbert, AZ - Another part of dinner. We left the husks on and put them on the grill, the best way to cook corn on the cob.

8:15 pm Gilbert, AZ - Waiting for the chicken grease to burn off of the grill left over from the coke can chicken made last weekend.

8:30 pm Gilbert, AZ - Oops, ran out of fuel just as we put the steaks on the grill. Fortunately the corn was just about done and we broiled the steaks.

8:45 pm Gilbert, AZ - The finished plate. Sweet potato fries is one of my new favorite side dishes.

8:45 pm Gilbert, AZ - I was very excited to hear about Betty Crocker coming out with gluten free mixes (brownie, cookies, and cake) so we had to try it. Right now as I'm posting this, I'm enjoying a brownie for the first time in a long time.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you next month.


  1. Those roll ups do sound good. I'm allergic to cucumber, tho, but I'm sure I could figure out something to replace it with. I'm good at that.

    I'm jealous that you guys are getting corn! All we're getting are these anemic husks that look like the ones that fell off the truck on the way to the ethanol plant. Boo.

    Nice 12!!

  2. What a great day, so colorful and fun...and full of food pix!!!
    Thanks for sharing your day with us. :)

  3. I agree, corn grilled in the husk is the best way to go....always keep a spare tank of propane.

    Try slicing sweet potatoes very thin with a potato peeler and deep fry like you would a potato chip. YUMMEE!!!

  4. Mmmm, the finished BBQ looks yummy! And yay for you being able to have brownies again :D

  5. I hate when I run out of propane just as I want to grill -- it happens more than I'd like to admit!
