I had to go to Marion today, to have some minor surgery on my ankle, so DH and I ate lunch at Red Lobster before I went "under the knife". I had grilled Rainbow Trout from the lunch menu, and it was good, but such a thin little fillet! I much prefer the trout cooked whole. I guess most restaurants are afraid to serve fish with bones, though.
Kim had jumbo grilled shrimp, and they were good, also.
Even the dog, Chloe, got in on the goodies. I brought her home a cheddar biscuit, and that merry little tail was really showing her appreciation!

I keep telling myself that one of these days, I'm just going to make a meal of their appetizors.

I made blondies. Who says you cannot have cookies for dinner? I got home about 4pm, one kid already at work, till 10pm, the other heading out the door, not to return till 10, also. What's the point in cooking?

So, I made cookies, instead. When you think about it, all the food groups are present: flour (bread), eggs & pecans ( protein) dried cherries (fruit) vanilla ( vegetable) butter, (fat) and chocolate ( from the ever popular candy food group). Not to worry about the missing dairy group, as I expect my kids will down about half a gallon of milk, each...

Great! Now I'm going to have that Bill Cosby skit going through my head!!

C'mon everyone sing it! "Dad is great! Give us chocolate cake!" And don't forget the grapefruit juice to go with it!
