Dinner Saturday, 8-18-2018 ~ On this day in history...

...French Astronomer Pierre Janssen discovers helium in solar spectrum during eclipse. And silly party guests have been talking in squeaky voices ever since.

Himself studied astronomy at THE Ohio State University. There was a little, family owned pizza and sub shop right by campus known as "Quisno's Pizza and Subs" that made the best subs ever. A former employee at that one shop ended up starting a chain of semi-decent subs. Meh on Quizno's. In honor of Janssen, we'll be having Quisno's style subs, and wash them down by sharing a bottle of ale made by an abbey of Trappist monks in a town nearby. The second half of the peach pie for dessert...much later.

What's on your plate tonight?

"On this day in history1965", I was called Mommy for the very first time. It changed my life forever.
He's having a ball in a limo with friends wine tasting up north today.


For dinner, I'm grilling some pork tenderloin skewers, marinated in an Asian Chef John mix. I've used it many times and it's excellent..
rice wine vinegar/grated garlic/fish sauce/soy sauce/Sriracha/Chinese 5 spice powder.
I'll serve it with grilled veggies and fried rice.

If it cools off enough, I'll grill, if not, I'm probably going to do a simple pasta dish. I'm craving pasta, this week.

BTW, a billboard near the ohio state university campus after their president said 12-0 TCU didn't belong in a BCS bowl game...

Happy birthday to your firstborn, Kay! Yep, that is a life changing moment, for sure.

I had an afternoon nap again, and fixin' to look through the fridge and see what I can come up with. Not sure yet, but I know it won't involve any cooking - most likely a cold platter of deviled eggs, cheeses and crackers, and whatever fruits and veggies need used up.

Unsettled weather this afternoon, so it was an indoor meal. Cashew chicken stir fry, which is one of Mrs. T's faves.

It's also National Bad Poetry Day:

You're a poet
and you don't know it
but your feet show it
They're long fellows.
