Dinner 4-12-2019 ~ At least it's not Friday the 13th!

Salad, soup, and sandwich here. It will still be good if it's only two out of three because

That song is a blast from the past, CG! Loved it back then...even though it was a break up song.
-----------------------------------

Leftover spaghetti here this afternoon. I'll make another salad to go with it, and a slice of toasted garlic bread.

Might be because we remember the music of our teens, but I wonder how much contemporary music will be remembered in a few decades. We're within earshot of a popular wedding venue, and I know a lot of the songs from my younger days. I enjoy "Paradise By The Dashboard Light", but somehow I haven't heard it played at a wedding.

Tonight's dinner was a shrimp and snow pea stir fry.

My 14 year old granddaughter had no idea who Cher is...

Dinner was shrimp and warm remoulade pasta.

Sorry....speaking of wedding songs, I couldn't resist sharing this. The song I Loved Her First by Heartland came out the year my oldest daughter got married about 12 years ago, and they played it during the Father/Daughter waltz at her outdoor wedding. At first it appears the lyrics are about a previous beau, then it's revealed it's the father of the bride. Everyone was in happy tears.

Oh wow, how beautiful Cheryl. I don't think I've heard that song before..thank you for that and the lovely picture!


I sure wasn't a "from scratch" cook tonight, but it was good. TJ's fish nuggets in the oven with roasted asparagus and the toaster oven did Betty Crocker scalloped potatoes. Oh, I made some tarter sauce. Easy peasy, and better than fast food at least.

I scored a Nolan Ryan Prime Ribeye in the Manager's Special section of the Kroger meat department. So, it was steak for dinner tonight.

Had to take advantage of Pizza Hut's large two topping pizza for just $5.99. Carryout and ordered online deal is good until this Monday.

I ended up making a trinity of foods: garden salads, cheesy cauliflower soup, and tuna melts. Wrong kind of bread, but it's what needs to be used up. They ended up being knife and fork sandwiches.
