I ordered Chinese and got one more dish than requested by accident so they didn't charge me for it. I could barely eat one small plate, but we will have food for the weekend. It is a long one here (only in certain Canadian provinces).

Don't you love it when that happens? I recently ordered a taco salad for delivery from our local pizza place and they made two by accident, so I got a BOGO. Fortunately, my daughter was here and she took one home, otherwise that extra salad would have wilted before too long.

Hope you're feeling better, LP.

We were out playing tourists today; on our way home via the turnpike I saw the exit that led to a large mall. Nearby is a restaurant we like but visit infrequently since it's so far from home. Since it was along the route we stopped at John Harvard's.

Himself had a very large Cuban sandwich and a pile of fries. I had ordered fries with my pulled pork sandwich, but when Tory brought out the basket of Focaccia bread and plated up the seasoned oil I switched those fries to salad! We each had a glass of house-brewed beer. I forgot how nice it is to have someone else serve ME!

Made angel hair with bolognese sauce last night, since my dad is home and he's such a picky eater i have no idea how to feed him beside beef,beef, and beef. Watched my mom deconstructed my pasta to her taste, she wanted the pasta to be extra soft, almost mushy, cut them to three parts(for easier eating, she said) and added 6 tbs of sugar to my sauce coz it was too tart for her and she wanted it sweet! Hahahaha i'm so glad there's no italian in my household.


Let's talk food!

DH received a nice check for a grant he's working on, so we went out to dinner here: http://www.manninositalianbistro.com/

We started with a delicious antipasto plate - yummy! I had their special - chicken and veggies in pesto-cream sauce over penne and DH had veal piccata.

Looks delicious. Looks like a tasty menu at that resto.

Thanks folks! Next time, I'm sticking with local large oysters for "on the half shell". Although very good, those little Pacific oysters are a PITA to shuck!
