More summer

Hello, Everyone,

It's like we forgot what summer feels like.  It seems so strange to have a hot summer Friday, LOL.   I feel fine, listening to Drew Tretick play violin.  "Somewhere in Time".  All very romantic stuff.  We heard him play on our honeymoon and the music is a nice reminder.  Why, thank you, I did just have an anniversary.  Yup, enjoyed it, I did. 

Nate and I went to the City run mini water park at the Del Mar pool today.   Lots of fun and not expensive.  Nate loves it.

I could post a picture of my sunburn (despite SPF 55 waterproof sunscreen) but I'll let you imagine it.

We had a nice pizza lunch at Sammy's after that. (See: )

Ever since Heather and I had Chicken Shwarma at Alladin's, we have been trying to figure out how to do it at home.  This is my last, best effort.  I feel like I'm almost there. Theirs is still better.   (See: )

Chicken Shwarma
Remove excess fat from a tray of chicken thighs and put them into the crockpot.  Add 6 plump cloves sliced garlic, more if the cloves are puny.  Sprinkle on:
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper.
2 tsp Pensey's Greek seasoning  (See: )
1 tsp Pensey's Turkish seasoning  (See: )
1 tsp cinnamon
Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.  Remove bones.   Serve with fresh home-made flat bread, if you've got it.  Top with a bit of melted Brie.    Heaven!

Today must be my day for links.

Lilo is out enjoying the night air.  Oh, here she comes inside.  How does she know when I mention her name? Psychic-kitty.
