we hada really great day in the baking sun at a man-made lake in northwest jersey today. there's a big sand beach, water slides, bumper boats, picnic areas and a beer garden, etc..
then we went to a local restaurant and had an un-remarkable dinner. i should have known something was wrong when they were nearly empty at 6pm during oeak season.

i think the chef was trying to kill us with salt. we shared some very salty crabmeat stuffed mushroom caps, then a french onion soup that tasted like bouillon cubes.

for entrees, my boy had salty broiled flounder, dw had blackened salmon, and i had a blackened ribeye. i think 75% of the blackening spices was salt.

anyway, very good vanilla ice cream, a decent piece of tiramisu, and a lot of ice water helped.

it was sfill a fun day, nonetheless.

harry is going to be so proud of you!

you know, if it's easy, tastes good, and isn't too often, the food snobs should just shield their self-important eyes.

Neither had the cashier. She asked if it was a TV dinner. I said, "Sort of, you need rice or something to go with it."

Easy - 2 minutes in the microwave. Setting the table was more effort. They are good, but not great. I like that they are so quick, don't need refrigeration (until opened), and they are made of food with nothing weird added.
