Speaking of the Fourth, I want to ask a question. I went to the grocery store around 11:30 A.M. today (Sunday). At the front of the store, an employee was putting party-sized packages of cookies and cupcakes on display. The cupcakes were decorated for the 4th. Do people wait until Saturday or Sunday to celebrate the 4th with parties? I couldn’t imagine this when I looked at the display. Everyone I know has their party on the 4th, even if it’s during the work week. Of course, there are people who have to work on Independence Day, so now that I think about it, I guess they’d be the weekend celebrators.July 7, 2019 at 11:52 am #16939
For dinner, I’m gong to make Trisha Yearwood’s (Food Network) Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup. I’m leaving out the lemon juice and probably adding a dried herb or two to compensate.

The city of Lincoln held its annual fireworks display on the 3rd and fireworks were only legal to shoot off on the 3rd and the 4th this year, but I often see stores putting holiday-decorated items at the front of the store after a holiday to help get rid of them.July 7, 2019 at 4:09 pm #16943
Follow-up on Trisha Yearwood’s Lemon Orzo Soup. Her recipe doesn’t specify to use cooked chicken, and I don’t recall her stating cooked chicken on the show when she made this. So I used raw chicken cut into 1/4″ dice (butcher cut it). I ended up with scum in the soup, such as one would have when making chicken broth with fresh chicken. Only worse. So much it was impossible to skim it all off.
I just discovered Food Network Kitchen also has a recipe for this type of soup. They specify cooked chicken. And that’s my advice if you want to make this soup.July 7, 2019 at 8:43 pm #16951

The shrimp and cooked sausage skewers were delightful . A splash of lime juice over the skewers would have been the cherry on the sundae but alas I forgot it. Subsequently I found several recipes online for shrimp and sausage skewers. I think the shrimp and sausage make a nice combo.July 9, 2019 at 7:45 pm #16976BakerAuntParticipant
Our area has had high heat and humidity for two weeks now, with just one little break. We also spent a lot of the day arranging furniture in the now finished guest bedroom. Accordingly, dinner tonight was a rotisserie chicken and a salad, featuring Romaine lettuce, tomato, and green onion from the farmers market, joined by store-bought carrots and Baby Bella mushrooms.July 9, 2019 at 10:11 pm #16978
