We went down the road to Sam's today, then had lunch at Red Lobster. They have a Tuesday shrimp special, where you get 40 shrimp, fixed your choice of 4 ways, for $14.95. Naturally, they weren't very big, but tasty, none the less. I had 10 of each...coconut, scampi, popcorn shrimp (big handful, not counted), and regular fried. I didn't care for the coconut shrimp...they were very sweet, kind of like Malibou Rum. But I brought them home, and little Jesse polished them off, along with one of those great cheddar herb biscuits and a glass of chocolate milk.
It wasn't fine dining, but darned good for $30.
What really made the meal was the sevice. We had an excellent waiter, and that can make the difference between a hum drum meal and a great one. HB even came up off his wallet and gave the guy 20% instead of the usual 10.

Had dinner at the neighbor's. Didn't like it so much but cleaned my plate to be polite.

I gave myself 2nd degree burns yesterday so I can't cook tonight
I had some leftover lasagna. I'm still hungry though.

Corazon, what did the neighbor make?

oh, sorry to hear about that biev! That's gotta be painful.
It was pork something or other that had been in the slow cooker all day. They raise pigs and this was some of their meat. I just don't like it, every time they make it or give us meat from their pigs. Tastes gross to me. Beets & mashed potatoes.

It can be a gamble going over, sometimes she makes something great and other times...it leaves something to be desired. She has the biggest heart though, and I go more for the great company than what is on my plate.

Those are Chesapeake Bay rolls (though Red Lobster calls them something different). You'd be amazed how easy they are to make. Once I figured out how to make em, I never had a reason to ever set foot in another Red Lobster :P.
