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: http://www.sammyspizza.com/ )
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: http://aladdincafe.com/ )
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: http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/p-penzeysgreekseas.html )
1 tsp Pensey's Turkish seasoning (See: http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/p-penzeysturkish.html )
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.
