Well it's in the 100's (yet again), so I'm thinking about shrimp salad (yet again) with cold roast chicken and home-made potato salad. I didn't roast the bird, just left it outside. (kidding!)

You sound like a sweet roommate! Sorry it went unappreciated. You could make nachos out of them either with your favorite grated/sliced cheese or velveeta. Jalapenos, chopped tomatoes, green onions, ground meat, sour cream, guac, etc. would just be gravy at this point!

I love my weber. Do you have a particular recipe for (I'm assuming) a slow-cooked pork roast on the charcoal bbq?

Thumbs up Yummy, for the old tummy!

Scallops & mushrooms, sauteed in butter and white wine to make nice sauce. Served over garlic angel hair pasta with a side of fresh spinach salad bathed in a balsamic dressing.

Last night we had pitas and a gorgeous dip based on an Indian chat snack that I had with a coworker recently.

In the pitas:

3/4 lb ground turkey, browned and seasoned with sage, garlic salt, cumin powder, pepper, chili powder, crushed red chilis, and a dash of olive oil
1 red pepper, julienned
5 scallions, green part included, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Fresh oregano, chopped
Fresh thyme, chopped
Fresh rosemary, chopped
Dried tarragon
Dried basil
Dried parsley
Dash of crushed red peppers
Dash of kosher salt

Once that cooked, I added:

3 handfuls spinach, washed and chopped
2 spoonfuls nonfat Greek yogurt (to hold it together)

I stuffed those into 2 halved pitas from Western Bagel, which are only 110 calories with 8 grams of fiber each. And they're tasty.

For the Indian chat dip, I used a whole can of Bush's low-sodium chickpeas, a small cooked potato, diced, 1/3 red onion, finely chopped, a handful of cilantro, finely chopped, and a tablespoon of chat masala seasoning (available at any Indian grocery store) and a half teaspoon of chili powder with a dash of olive oil. I served this with Stacy's pita chips and it was delish!

The whole meal was pretty healthy. The chat dip with pita chips can be fattening if you eat too much of it, but we didn't. There was plenty left over.

We're having roast beef sandwiches (with mustard on whole wheat bread) to finish up the leftovers from yesterday's meal. Chips, iced tea, and chocolate pie (again) for dessert, too.
