we wen out to a local steakhouse for my birfday.

they have a huge salad bar, so we started with huge salads (what else?) with some delicious liver pate and homemade raisin walnut bread.

then, dw had cedar plank salmon and garlic mashed spuds, my boy had a butcher steak and shrimp with a side of sweet potato fries, and i had the double cut, rare prime rib with garlic mashed.

dessert was a molten lava cake with vanilla ice cream, and a candle on top.

Make pulled pork burritos from the last of our pulled pork. Himself and I decided it was wasted since you couldn't tell it was there with the other ingredients. Then again, what we had was more like a rolled taco, full of goodies it was. I also made a bit of rice and beans (and corn and salsa) for a side.
CG--my day was EXHAUSTING. And, I did put on bleach/paint stained scrubs and tackled de-skunking the Saint Bernard. That was around midnight...and, the scrubs were left outside, I "hopped" back inside in my b'day suit. My nearest neighbour is over 1/4 mi away and would have needed night vision goggles and probably binoculars to have seen that..Living in the country is an adventure in life that only ends when you leave the house feet first in a pine box (or, according to some native cultures, feet first in a pine box out the window that faces west).

Try to bring it down to 4x6. It fits so much better.

The Pirate bought me a pepperoni/mushroom pizza and for himself he had a Shrimp Alfredo Pizza.

And now he is sick as a dog. He has got the flu. All day he was complaining of his stomach feeling upset. I kept ignoring him. Last year he got the flu shot and then got the flu the next day. Why am I always the one who takes care of the flu patients? Right now he has a nice high temperature. I have to try to get some liquids into him. Such joy!
