Odds and ends, we had a big lunch.

We went to La Porte Grecque. Stirling had the shish kebab and I had the bacon wrapped scallops. Omnomnom. That was really good. I had an appetizer of tzatziki and it wasn't like a sauce. It was more like a mousse and it kept its shape - really, really tasty. Stirling had baklava for dessert and I had 1/2 a piece of carrot cake cheese cake. Both were excellent. I brought the other 1/2 piece of my dessert home. I didn't go to this resto for a long time because I had gone with a large group of friends and they don't do groups well. But, this is our second time not in a group and the food has been excellent.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Sounds like a great dinner out Taxi!

The lazy bug bit me so I made a really easy tuna casserole Himself had in his College Kids cookbook. And if it's easy enough for a college boy to do, it's easy enough for me to do in my sleep.

Kitty was happy to get a few bites of tuna too, so we were all happy.

I winged it last night, with amazing results:

Alfredo penne pasta with roasted mushrooms and eggplant.

I sliced the eggplant and mushrooms, then shook them in a bag with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper, then baked @350 for 15 minutes.

I have never had mushrooms that were so good. I even made a second batch of them so I'd have extra mushrooms with today's leftovers.

Well, it would've been.

I got home late from work so we just went out for sushi instead. Not that that's a bad thing.

So I guess pancakes will be Thursday's dinner.

YUM, sushi

Not a bad thing at all

We are having sushi for lunch tomorrow

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
