Sounds like an enjoyable evening, Kylie.

Tonight we are taking Mrs. K out for her birthday. First, we're having sushi at a place called Seven, after which we're off to see Monty Python's Spamalot musical. It should be a fun night, although I'm a little nervous about doing all this on crutches.

Mussels, with sourdough bread for those that want to greedily eat it dunked in the sauce. Personally I prefer to reserve the sauce and use it as a stock to make a leek soups the next day.

I am cracking open a jar of plums preserved in brandy to have with some yoghurt afterwards.

It's horrid weather here though, and we would have been better with a stick to your ribs type supper, so I might turn the plums into a more substantial upside down cake instead.

Still need to do some shopping. Going to try my hand at making Coq Au Vin (maybe in the slow cooker), served over broad noodles, or fingerlings added to the pot (albeit unconventional). A fresh fruit tart (from the bakery) for dessert.

I'm going non-meat: stir-fried rice with veggies and maybe some tofu...not sure about the tofu yet. I think the only kind I have in the fridge is the soft kind...I'm trying to eat more tofu, but am still learning which kind to buy and how long to press and drain it, marinate it.

We wete going to go to a dinner theater and see the new Oz movie, but the weather is so nice, we didn't want to go inside. So we're going to pick up dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant. Not sure yet what I'll get.
