Hey, it was on sale compared to the $5.99/lb stuff a few weeks ago.
Peru works for me

That sounds really good

DH wasn't supposed to be home for dinner so I planned chicken sandwiches and broccoli for the yungun and me. Then he calls and says because of the coastal flooding he was being sent home. So we still had chicken sandwiches and broccoli with cheese. I just doubled the amount I cooked.

That's almost local to you! (Certainly nearer to you than to me I would guess!)

To heck with him. "I" feel left out
Great freezer raid.

Katy, as fast as our transport system works anymore, it's probably every bit as fresh as coming from a local farmer and sitting for a few days. Who knows, maybe they even pick it a few days early.
I know asparagus has been outrageous around here all Spring/Summer. Nobody had it on sale

Had a big pot of chili simmering for tonight's meal and had taken out the recipe for our favorite cornbread to go with when Glenn came in and made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

We hopped on the motorcycle and rode about 40 minutes to the nearest T.G.I.Fridays. He'd been given some gift cards for his birthday in June and was of a mind to use them today.

Couldn't have been more perfect for riding...about 70F, clear, sunny, essentially no humidity, calm and an open road. All told we were gone about 4 hours and enjoyed a wonderful meal and even split a dessert, which is unusual for us. We rarely feel like ordering dessert when we eat out. Must've been all the nice fresh air we got on our way to dinner.

It was awesome and...now I don't have to cook tomorrow night, 'cause the chili is ready. Just have to make the cornbread. Yeah!!!

Don't worry Pac, I wasn't having a go. If I really like something I will defy the "local produce police" and get it. (As it happens I don't really like Asparagus - I was just being curious!)

Change of plans. When I opened the package of chops the smell almost knocked me over so I decided to toss them. I can report, however that SO and I both liked the stuffing...

I cooked up some panko breaded chicken tenders and red potatoes instead.
