Braciole, pasta and a veggie. Finished up the angel food cake with the last of the blueberry sauce. We were full and, best of all, there's plenty left for tomorrow.

I'm all cleaned up and ready to go on a dinner date, but nobody has asked. I may need to give up and order a pizza.

I was the SousChef tonight! I only did TJ's Shrimp Toast along with Jasmine rice.
SC did his famous Shrimp Egg Foo Yung and his best ever gravy.
Soooo good!!

tenspeed, you just brought back memories about the Sadie Hawkins dances. I remember those as a young teen age girl, and being so terrified at the thought of asking a boy to a dance. How things have changed.

Dinner this evening was going to be grilled chicken, but the wind came up so I roasted it instead. Side salad.

Kay...I've been thinking of Egg Foo Young lately as well....been a while since I've made that wonderful dish!

RR, sounds like a nice comfort meal.

We dropped into a new-to-us bar and grill while we were poking around on Pine Island and driving through Matlacha (locals say "Matt-la-SHAY). We really weren't hungry, but the online reviews for Blue Dog Bar & Grill were good. Each have a beer, share an appetizer...

Three beers, a cup of black bean soup, conch bites, smoked mullet dip with blue corn tortilla chips, and three stone crab claws later...*burp* Everything was tasty. Worth a repeat visit before we leave on Friday morning, but I don't know if we'll be able to squeak out another restaurant meal after meeting up with tinlizzie tomorrow (Tuesday) and cleaning up the food we have in the refrigerator here. Maybe next time.

I drive through Matlacha every 3 months on my route. Never stopped anywhere for lunch. The way the buildings are painted, it screams to me "T" trap, but I'm glad you enjoyed it.

We had spicy meatball, Bahn Mi sandwiches with sriracha mayo, radish and carrot slaw.
