Where are we today ?
Just more wonderful weather mostly sunny and temps about 30c (86F) my kind of weather. Walkabouts this morning and chat with a few guys at the garage and back home to whip up a Turkey Meat loaf for lunch. Suzie had invited her Mom and Dad over after church this morning.
Easy standard type meatloaf recipe but used 2 lbs of lean ground turkey breast. Chopped onions, fresh garlic, some bread crumbs, one egg,oilive oil, worchester sauce. Form into a huge loaf and refrigerate for an hour our so.
Then I preheat our Weber Q added a foil package off Apple wood chips I had soaked for a while. Set the meat loaf on my trivet with foil on the grill for an hour or so until internal temp reached 165f. Last 15 minutes I slathered on some BBQ sauce to finish off.
Now we had some ripe local peaches that needed to be eaten so Suzie chopped them up and really hit the spot with whipped cream.
We have purchased other chairs to replace these but just don't do the trick and this style is no longer available, so I will keep them going as long as possible.
Later in the afternoon we stopped by to visit our host who was watching a baseball game on the huge screen tv in the garage. Now we are not sports fans at all but did want to visit for a few minutes before we leave here in the morning. We figured at the bottom of the 8th inning only a short time left in the game then we can go back home and read for a while.. Toronto Blue Jays playing the Detroit Tigers.

are wearing out. But I can still fix em.
At the end of the 9th it was a tie game so into overtime. Well we can't leave now only a few minutes left in the game right? WRONG!! We ended up watching 10 more innings (three hours) and a record of 19 innings for the Toronto Blue Jays. Actually watched more than a regular baseball game in overtime!
But we did actually enjoy this close game and a nice visit as well. Glad we don't watch Baseball more often it takes away from our outside reading time.

hit the winning run.
Really it was a fun afternoon, something we don't normally do, but did enjoy it. And nice to actually spend some social time with our host.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit and hope you too had a fun day as well.
