Dinner Tonight

Here's my awesome Greek salad with my lone baby cucumber. A taste of summer bliss to come. I can hardly wait til I have fresh tomatoes from the garden, too!
We also did chicken. We weren't really chicken drumstick people until the kids came along. The boys L-O-V-E chicken drumsticks! They get yummy chicken with a built in handle. We like to flavor them up, though, so I have a nice fall back lemon garlic marinade that I do.
I didn't set my Penzey's Tuscan Sunset out, but I use that as well. It's basically Italian Seasoning. And please note that we like a little garlic.
I smash the bulbs, take off the outer peel, then salt, and chop and smash. The salt helps break the garlic down.
Gotta have lemon juice.
And here's what they look like when they're all done. I ate two. The boys can each take out two as well, if they're in an eating mood. Baked potatoes and fresh cantaloupe rounded out the meal.

Tomorrow is easy button for the boys, as I'm working until about 8. So they're going to do hot dogs, and I'm baking brownies. Sunday I've rearranged the menu a bit because even though hubby's birthday is Monday, I think we're going to do birthday dinner on Sunday.

Hi Michelle,
Thanks so much for submitting your yummy meal for Simple Summer Suppers. Your salad looks delicious and the chicken legs sound wonderful too. I love either lemon or lime on chicken - and garlic on just about everything! :-)
