We're kind of having fish....well, it lives in water. Mussels done two ways, one in a marinara sauce, the other in a white wine sauce. Lobster tails with lemon and buttah. Salad and crusty bread with more buttah.

Loprraine, I want what you are having. We are taking it easy tonight. Crabcakes, crusty bread and a cup a' chowdah. I almost changed my menu after reading all the fish frying going on. I guess I am hungry but not ambitious.

I've noticed the same thing. What bothers me, though, is the dwindling use of the term "thank you" in general. When we were visiting my sister recently, a niece asked me why my son always says "thank you for dinner" when he asks to be excused. I said to her "it is common courtesy to thank people who have done something nice for you". She looked at me like I was from Mars.

As far as dinner is concerned, it is too bad I did the omelettes on Thursday as dh is still need able to handle much texture after dental surgery yesterday. He's going to have some leftover scalloped potatoes and cottage cheese. Weird, yes, but the menu was his selection. Ds and I are going to have some fried chicken (KFC) leftover from the lunch we provided today for a sibling group my agency sponsors.

I met a friend at a Chinese restaurant over in a northern Cincinnati suburb. We split the lobster special - which was 2 fresh lobsters, cooked with ginger, soy, green onions and served on a bed of freshly steamed rice noodles (and only $20 for 2 lobsters!). We also had dim sum - I was the only Caucasian in the place and my friend did all the ordering in Cantonese - the food was delicious! I am pretty stuffed - ready for a nap.

......................but folks, no one helped me with what to do about the change that wasn't brought to me. Is it okay to leave that part of what's due me back, out? And Kades, you hit the nail on the head, say for instance the bill is $50, you put down $100, what do you think noodlehead waitress, "no, you just keep the $50 as your tip."

How presumptuous of the waiter/waitress to simply not include your change change in what they return to you.
aaaaargh.............

conversely, last night I left a generous tip to the young gal that waited on us because she deserved it, phathom that..........

Last night we enjoyed one of our old favorites - a sort of "pseudo" Fettucini Alfredo (Barilla fettucini tossed with a mixture of melted "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter", non-fat yogurt, sour cream, & copious amounts of freshly grated parmesan cheese). Served with a nice green salad & warm Italian bread.

I broke my jaw in a car accident many years ago, and it was wired shut for 6 weeks. I ate a lot of spaghetti with tomato sauce, fish, rice, mashed potatoes.

DH is still out of town, so I just had a salad for dinner as I made up a couple batches of Rick Bayless' tomatillo-serrano sauce.
