SC found an excellent product in the deli section of the grocery..Dietz & Watson Black Forest Bratwurst, so I put them to good use.

Hollowed out Bolillo rolls were oven toasted and stuffed with the roasted sausages along with a crisp tender butter sauteed combo of red onion/red and green pepper and sliced apple. The tart apple sent the sandwiches over the top. Just delicious with a potato salad side.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I also didn't cook !

Carried in something my Chinese Take-Out friend chose for me called 'Dragon & Phoenix' ... General Tso's Chicken on the one hand, Shanghai Shrimp on the other... The Chicken was just what she said; General Tso's.... the Shanghai Shrimp was amazing ! Perfect combination of hot and sweet !
A winner !
Oh, and some Lefty Potato Salad from yesterday ...

Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart.

For dessert we had leftover wedding cake from a wedding we attended last night.
Delicious? In a Crock Pot? You must have done something wrong. Probably didn't cook it long enough.

Pirate called Carlos's Sub Shop and ordered a meatball sub for me and for him an Italian Sub with everything on it.

Now I very rarely eat bread. Maybe every six months or so. And even then I don't finish it. But Carlos's gets a delivery every morning of bread from a local bakery. But he won't tell anyone where it is. So FRESH! I picked out all the meatballs first and then ate the bread. Even I know their meatballs are delicious, the bread was calling me. And I complied.
