Same here - I usually have breakfast around 9, and dinner around 4. With a little grazing in between. Don't like to eat much in the evening, either. Now I remember why. lol

I made a new friend this week at our Kid's Day Camp. She volunteered to work in the kitchen and it was like at first sight! She is a hard worker and a very nice person.

Anyway, through the week she told me she can't bake and wondered if I would teach her. I said sure, and in payment I would like lessons in tradition Punjab cuisine. She was more than happy to oblige.

So today, she shows up with a container of pekora curry for my dinner. I tasted a bit of the sauce and it was SOOOOO good! Unfortunately I think I have a bit of the flu so didn't feel like it for dinner but it is in the fridge waiting for tomorrow!

we started with salads and manhattan clam chowder, then a fantastic appy of fried calamari and shrimp with spicy marinara.

next, my boy had a sizzling sirloin (sizzling on a white hot plate with maggi sauce) and a side of pasta; dw had the veal picata, baked spud, and steamed stringbeans; i had the marinated veal chops and a side of pasta.

portions were huge, and everything delicious.

dessert was coffee and a so-so tiramisu.

we'll have to try their pizza soon.
sounds fabarooney tom!! i can almost smell & hear your sons sizzling steak.haven't had veal for yonk's...not easy to get over here & when you can it's usually just the escallopes & veally veally expensive!!
