I spent the day cleaning house, which was long overdue, so I didn't feel up to a big effort in the kitchen. A good meal in that situation is souvlaki from the local grocer. They have an excellent marinade and the skewers are made up so it's easy to prepare. I put rice in the microwave and started up the BBQ. Fern spent an obscene amount of money on All Clad BBQ Tools, in their own bullet proof carrying case, so I was sure to make a production of laying them out for rocket surgery.
Fern picked a cucumber and tomatoes from the garden and made a wonderful greek salad. He used a diced shallot, small cucumber, 2 tomatoes, chopped parsley, salt, black pepper, olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
I put a little soy sauce on my rice and thoroughly enjoyed my meal.
