We're having some difficulty here. Oven challenges since our oven has malfunctioned and the repair people haven't arrived. Were supposed to have had a baked salmon dish. Instead I've dropped back two and punted. We'll have my macaroni/tuna/baby pea salad. It's more of a hot weather dish and, since our weather's finally broken, kind of out of sync. Oh, well, we'll go with the flow. Ya do what ya do.

Lefse, you crack me up because of something my grandmother firmly believed in. That is that the older you ae, the more days you should celebrate your birthday. By the time she passed away, she was celebrating her birthday for a month. My husband and I share (He and I were born one day, 8 years apart -- I'm 5, he's 6 March) and this year we just were not enthusiastic about it because my mother was sick, and my husband is very close to my family. I was going to throw him a big party (the big six-oh), but his heart just wasn't into it with Mom being so sick. So ... we were just going to skip it. Maybe go to dinner. Instead our older friends insisted that they were going to throw a party, our restaurant owning friends bought us drinks, etc.

Every birthday should be celebrated, and when you're inclined to skip one, well this is what friends are for: to remind you that there is always a reason to celebrate another year of life.

The climate is still pretty toasty here, so... had healthy choice deli sliced thin turkey breast, swiss cheese, sliced avocado, and sliced tomatoes on an egg bagel (open faced) with mayo - nuked in the microwave until the cheese was melty - then added the avo, tomatoes. Assorted fruit cup for dessert.

I went to a dinner meeting last night and had a surprisingly good dinner, catered by the university where the meeting was held - bronzed salmon (it was baked with brown sugar, black pepper, and something else - I think it might have been ground coriander - on top), twice-baked potatoes, steamed asparagus, garden salad, fruit salad and Key lime pie. DH had leftover shrimp stir-fry.
