i'm going on yelp now to give them a suitable review.

the day got better afterwards, though, as we spent the afternoon at nearby batting cages. i was really proud of the little guy for hitting 45mph balls with good consistency. not bad for a kid not even 9 yet.

then we went home to happily find dw making turkey meatliaf, mashed potatoes, and corn.

no cockroaches.
Tom, if there were cockroaches in the dining room, imagine what it was like in their kitchen.

Quick and cheap tonight. I found Red Baron pepperoni and supreme pizzas the other night at Walgreen's for $3 each ($5.99 buy one, get one free). So we are having pizza tonight.

We lunched on more of the carb overload from last night's United Way dinner, so not hungry right now. I do have a hankering for Mom's carrot casserole, so may throw that together, if I can remember the recipe.

no cockroaches.
I grew up in HackNSmack! LOL Used to blast that song. Only been to Cubby's ONCE never again. They used to have a sign on the wall saying that Ronny Ray Gun and staff order out from there.

Related note - I once saw a roach big enough to saddle run across the floor at the Candlewick Dinner just before the last renovation. AND there was a kitchen fire at the Chilis on rt 17 in east rutherford and when the firemen knocked into the kitchen wall an avalanche of roaches fell out. Those are 2 places I DO NOT eat any more.

I wasn't planning on cooking tonight, but my friend has a dental appointment in the a.m., so we postponed until tomorrow. I was getting pork that was on sale ready for sausage so I marinated some cubes in sirachi (sp), with ginger, garlic, grated jalapeno, juice of two key limes (they are tiny) a dab of sesame seed oil, rice vinegar, pepper. Stir-fried with some celery, mushrooms, bok choy. I tossed some rice noodles on to cook and pulled together a salad with grapefruit, blueberries, pecans, and about 1 tsp of Parmesan, dressed with a dash of walnut oil and balsamic vinegar. No name for this (but it was tasty). Just another one of my "pig slop" meals cooked on the fly.
