I had such good intentions today. I picked out a number of new recipes from this month's CookingLight Magazine. I went to the market - two actually - and bought the ingredients for Orange Chicken with Green Onions, Spicy Chicken Cakes with Horseradish Aioli, and a few dishes described as good for pre and post workout meals. While I did make the filling for Peanut Butter Plus sandwiches (to die for I might add), it was just too hot to contemplate cooking the rest, so to beat the heat, Hanna, Samantha and I went to Pelican Isle in Huntington Harbor. A lovely patio, a dish of cold water for the dogs, Chardonnay for me, and some pretty good appetizers left us all happy. Oh, and the Caribbean Steel Band was perfect for a Sunday afternoon.

Hi Diane,

I bought "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larsen today. Looks fascinating. A true-life murder mystery that I've never heard of before. Thanks for the recommend.

Don't know when I'll get to it, but its in the queue!
