Where are we today?
Clic a pic to enlarge it
       A very comfortable warm night with the windows open and we both had a wonderful sleep, as usual. Up just before sunrise about 6 am, got our coffee, and computing done a couple of walkabouts still enjoying this wonder warm weather, even though it was overcast and very humid. Temps about 76 F (24C), not a problem we can handle that.
      This picture below was a bunny that came by last night late just before we headed in, Seems to be hanging out around here somewhere.
baby bunny came by for a visit
      Shortly after 8:30am I headed into the Mufflerman in Srathroy for an emissions test (e-test) on Suzie's car (our towed). Never needed an appointment before but today they were busy. So I just hung out in town, killed a couple of hours picked up a few things and got the e-test done, Passed no problem, For 13 years old and lotsa miles on it has treated us very well, The preventive maintenance sure does pay off.
       I got home for light lunch, another walkabout and over to this amazing fitness centre we have her in this park, I have been missing my workouts because something always seems to crop up when I want to go.
love this fitness centre included in our membership
       After a nice workout back home to read outside for a while, But weird weather, read for a while, a drizzle, put our chairs away then back out again, Did this 3 times then finally cleared up .
         About 3:30 I prepped a couple of chickens we got on sale to cook up can't turn down a deal on chicken and with no freezer space will cook em up. Left over chicken and bones to make more soup ! Sandwiches and whatever we feel like. Just over 6 lbs of chicken for under 10 bucks, that is a deal here in Canada!
right on the Weber Q, low and slow just under 90 minutes
and done to perfection
 
cloudy and drizzly
then clear and sunny
        The last 20 minutes I added 2 cobs of white corn local, that we love, all husked and soaked in water for a bit, oh so tender and juicy.
we done
added a small salad and really did the trick today
       Of course lotsa leftovers but that was planned, just cause we can.
       Really not a bad day at all, nice and warm, most of our time outside and enjoying life.
       Thanks for stopping in and hope you had another great summer day as well
Where have we been this summer ?

  1. That's a great deal on chicken, especially when you consider the price per person per meal...

    1. Yes it sure was, that's what I figure, cost per serving, and we have lots of servings here.

  2. You two have another great day! And top it off with a great meal. The smoke from the Lolo Fire has stopped us in Missoula for the night at Wally's-campinglot. But grilling is not gonna happen just the salad for the evening.

    1. It was a great day, Wally's camping lot is not so bad we do a lot on the road and nothing like a tasty salad for supper.

  4. Sure does look like a yummy dinner. Gonna have to try a whole chicken on the Weber Q Haven't done that one yet. Do you marinate or baste or anything other than low and slow?

    1. No marinade or basted, I just trim excess fat,spray to with oil and my favourite spice , preheat on high turn to low close the lid. After 45 min check and tilt chicken to let the grease inside burn off about 80 minutes should be done 165 internal temp on breast skin will be crispy and moist inside.
