What's for Dinner #302 -- The Slide Towards Summer Edition! [through May 30, 2014]

roxlet | May 27, 201411:06 AM     416

Memorial Day usually marks the beginning of summer despite what the calendar says, and I can feel a bit of that summer vibe today -- it's kind of humid, and my dog is panting after the smallest exertion. I kind of feel that way too, though I don't pant, as far as I know.

Tonight it will be just me and the visiting Egyptian since rjbh20 will be off playing squash, and my son will be at CitiField watching a game courtesy of a member of the opposing team who used to be a student at my son's school. Pro athletes rarely come from his school! Given that it's just the two of us, my plan is to make burgers -- house ground very rich beef burgers for him, and a lighter turkey burger for me. With that will be a salad.

What's on your table as we slide towards summer?
