Job is going well, thanks. Lots to do. Making changes. Extra hours. Plus the band, and the family, of course. Pretty beat by the end of the day. Things are starting to settle a bit now, getting ahead of the game, once and a while.

Everyone's dinners look and sound fabulous!

Tonight we finally had the pastitsio I was going to make on Tuesday. I didn't have any small macaroni noodles so it didn't come out quite as lasgna-like as it usually does, but the flavor was there.

Tonight I'm making salmon with a cilantro/lime/garlic sauce. Basmati rice and steamed broccoli on the side.

We are disappointed again. They had a big group in the banquet room, so we were told it would be 20 minutes before we would get our entrees in the regular dining room, and were told to eat all we could at the salad bar (which was much diminished from previous visits).

45 minutes later the waitress delivered my walleye, which was totally undercooked. It looked like a fillet right after you caught and cleaned it, prior to cooking it. Walleye sashimi. The breading had no seasoning. I hope I don't get sick. I told the waitress to take it off our bill as it was inedible.

DH got the large prime rib (we'd planned on taking home leftovers for other stuff, usually we split entrees) ordered medium rare, and gave me a piece. I got the part that was blood raw. I gave it back to DH. He gave me another piece, it was well-done, and gray.

Oh well, I insisted that we take the rolls home.

Needless to say, we won't be back.
