    I may have to go pick something up for supper, the last of the semolina bread is gone. But after breakfast at McDonalds and lunch at the university cafeteria, I don't want a big dinner.

    The weather in our area has been great this year for strawberries, after two years when there were none or just a few. We ate our way through two quarts last week. At $6 a quart, they are not inexpensive, but the flavor is so wonderful that I consider it a worthy indulgence. (I refuse to buy commercial strawberries in the grocery anymore, although if desperate, I will buy frozen ones.) I bought two more quarts last Saturday. With the weather turning hot this week, I may not get any more. On Monday afternoon, I made strawberry jam and canned it. I got four 1-cup jars and one half-cup jar. These will be welcomed in the winter.

    My husband recently put up two long shelves in the kitchen. I use the lower one to hold jars with beans, pasta, and grains. It is both decorative and practical, as it allows me to track what I have on hand. For Tuesday's dinner, I decided to use up the last of some large Bob's Red Mill Lima beans that were on the shelf. I had soaked them overnight, then cooked them today. While they cooked, I made brown rice in the rice cooker. In another pot, I sauteed some sliced celery in avocado oil, before adding some pork deglazing liquid that I had frozen. I had found some lovely salad turnips at the farmers' market last Saturday, and I added the tops to steam in the liquid. Meanwhile, I added the last of some ham I had frozen to the cooked lima beans, along with 1 Tbs. dehydrated onion. I added the bean mixture to the larger pot, along with freshly ground black pepper. I tasted it, then added about 2 tsp. cider vinegar. I mixed in the rice, and dinner was done. Both my husband and stepson complimented me, and I also found it delicious.

    Mike, one of my first forays into baking breads on the grill is the Asiago Rounds recipe on KAF. I like them split horizontally and stuffed with veggies of your choice.

    I made a batch of sloppy Joe on Sunday. This consisted of lean ground beef, onion, sweet red bell pepper, a couple of jalapenos, fresh tomato and tomato paste to thicken it. A boatload of veggies.

    So, on Sunday and today, I had a sloppy Joe and a large salad. Yesterday I was invited to my neighbors for dinner, she made spaghetti and meat sauce and a salad. She made the meat sauce with canned tomato and stew meat that she simmered in the slow cooker for about 6 hours. It was really good.

    I did some baking on the old grill some years ago, some things came out pretty good, some looked like they had inconsistent heat. I know I tried baguettes and honey wheat bread, maybe a few other things.

    I might try Hamelman's semolina bread on the grill. Bread won't be among the first things I try, I need to figure out how hot it gets, where the hot spots are, and how well I can control the temperature first.
