I headed out to the kitchen to put on a pot of water for mac salad. While I was waiting for the water to boil, I noticed a couple of tomatoes I had. So I sliced one up and made a tomato sandwich. I ate the whole thing. Bread and all. I don't like bread. I must have been hungry or my taste buds are changing again. Now I know that foods we hated as kids, we rediscovered as adults and visa versa. But I should be past that now. But I am too old to be going through that now.

A tomato and bread sandwich? Come on, there must have been something else in there - some mayo, or butter or some kind of spread?

Decided it was too hot to grill, so I nuked the corn on the cob in husks, and wowzer, was it good!

I bought a jar of the new Hidden Valley sandwich spread with parm cheese. I used it very sparingly.

Now that sounds good, how is it, Addie?

That hasn't reached British shores yet, (as far as I know), but I am very glad you enhanced your sandwich with it! Why sparingly though? Did you have an awful lot of sandwiches?

Love it. I am a Georgia boy and traveling on business this week in NY. They keep telling me it is hot up here. NOT. They give me a hard time about the cold, well its payback time. Pony up boys, act like men and take it. Went out to PF changs tonight. Nice lettuce wraps and a nice Cab to boot.

Roasted, shredded chicken on top of Bibb lettuce. Instead of dressing there was kalamata tapenade, crumbled feta (from my favorite little Middle Eastern deli) and a drizzle of olive oil. Scrumptious!

Tonight was a take-out night.

Our grandson and I had to pick up SO at the Honda dealer. She offered to treat us to dinner. I said I didn't feel up to a restaurant and how about take-out. SO and grandson chimed in that they could go out to a restaurant together and I could go home with take-out!! I guess if I can't keep up, I lose.

So I had pork lo mein and chicken wings take-out while SO and grandson ate at a restaurant. I really don't feel bad about missing the restaurant experience as they went to McDonalds.

Oh, that sounds so nice! (Never heard of Bibb lettuce though). What's that like?
