It's Thursday night, time for dinner with friends! We're going to a different place tonight - The Orapax Inn, a local Greek restaurant. Looking forward to it.

I have to drive downtown for a meeting tonight, so I'll probably grab something there. There's actually a Nordic restaurant not far from where I'll be that looks interesting. It's one of those places where they grow their own vegetables on the roof.

Cool! Take pics! I'm just about to make a jog out to the corn patch and grab a few ears of corn. That's all, just fresh off the stock sweet corn.

dw made pad thai tonight. i't was good, but it's hard to eat dinner within an hour or so of waking up, so i didn't have much.

i have to be in at work early tonight to cover the steelers/ravens game, so i'll probably grab something in the city later.

Pan seared, small sea scallops with a red bell pepper smear (underneath) and a drizzle of basil infused olive oil. A celeriac/potato mash (Emeril's recipe) side.

Karen is making a Belgium waffle dough for breakfast in the morning.

I wasn't really hungry tonight (uncharacteristically) so I experimented with a quick stove top mac and cheese recipe. That kept me occupied and filled my stomach.

We went to Scarolies, our favourite Italian resto. I had:

"Capelli D'angelo Ai Gamberetti E Funghi
Schrimps [sic], Olive Oil, Garlic, White Wine, Porcini Mushrooms, Touch Of Cream, Fresh Basil And Shallots", but with wholewheat spaghetti. They make their own wholewheat pasta, but only make spaghetti.

Stirling had a Caesar salad and rotolo stuffed with Italian sausage, and covered with mozzarella, parm, eggplant, Italian, and mushrooms, baked in tomato sauce. We had white Mouton Cadet with that.

Stirling had strawberry cheesecake for dessert. I didn't have room for dessert, so I just had a decaf espresso.

It was delicious.
