This is something different.
I provide a completely worthless explanation of what I did today, followed by a rather decent recipe for dinner.
I worked in the garden, pulling weeds, planting a few flowers, and setting seeds. Then, Number One Son-in-law came by to assemble a new Weber grill. I have become less and less willing and able to follow assemble instructions and he is still of an age to have a talent for simple tasks. I entertained his kid and pretended to be interested. Once completed, he prepared dinner for the grill. This turned out to be rather good, even with my contribution. I opened a bottle of good German wine, from our friends vineyards on the Rhine, and steamed some spinach. He prepared the meat for the grill, which entailed slicing chicken breasts, beating them thin, and seasoning them with salt, pepper, olive oil, and parsley. These were placed on the new grill and cooked to perfection, and then sprinkled with olive oil and lemon juice. Mighty fine eating...and a great way to welcome the new grill to our home. Try it, you’ll like it.
