Acorn squash cooked with butter, brown sugar and maple syrup stuffed with sauteed mushrooms, onions, ground beef, raw chorizo and cheddar cheese. I love sweet and savory

And chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert

Nothing special. Green salad, fish & chips, maybe a beer, but most likely Sprite Zero

I am going out tonight. I am treating my best friend to a Vancouver Theatre presentation of the musical "Hairspray" (we absolutely love all versions of this!) and she is treating me to dinner on Vancouver's version of Broadway. The area we will be at boasts some of the best eateries around. There is a great BBQ spot, several sushi bars, and so much more! Can't wait to see what we decide on. I am allowing myself to go off my "healthy eating plan" (new code for diet) and just enjoy!

Just found out the show is cancelled for tonight because one of the leads had a minor stroke on stage last night and they don't have a stand-in. So, my friend and I are still going out for dinner, but here in Surrey, instead of going all the way into Vancouver! So have no clue what I will be eating. I am so looking forward to it though!

Some time out is exactly what you need right now LP. Have a wonderful time.

So sorry you won't be seeing the show tonight. Hope you got a "raincheck". I had been thinking of taking my best friend to this show too! We love Vancouver theatre (DH's not so much) so it's usually girls night out. I hope your Surrey night out is enjoyable.
No special dinner here.....Pizza picnic with some co-workers.

Yes, they are bringing in another actor to start tomorrow night and I can call in for another night. We just haven't picked it yet.

We went to White Rock Beach and ate at a wonderful Greek restaurant on the waterfront. I had lamb shank with a tarragon jus and all the greek sides and an almond sponge cake for dessert. It was a great evening even without the show. You should try to come up for it. Arts Club performances are always great and not too expensive!

It was "clean out the fridge Friday"... So had leftover fettuccine (I made more alfredo), I had meatballs and gravy over spaghetti, and our housemate had the left over chicken fajita fixin's and Spanish rice.
