We went out to dinner with old friends who we only see about once/ year. They chose a burger palace close to their neighborhood. Sort of meh burgers, neighboring table was complaining about their salads, we ordered fries. <<Those were the only good things we had. Way overpriced too. Dx went to bed. Think I'll make some popcorn and click on a movie.

My apologies to Ms. Lebowitz. I spelled her name wrong!

We had leftover chicken-barley stew. But first I had errands to run. As I was driving, I noticed a new bakery that was still open after what I thought were their regular hours. Detoured into the parking lot and walked into Wild Flour Kolaches. As Clevelanders from Eastern European descent, kolaches mean breakfast bakery, like a cheese Danish, to us. This place has those, but what they really turn out are savory kolaches. I picked up two different kinds: cheesesteak with peppers and onions, and sausage gravy. We shared and had half of each kind for supper, followed up by a bit of the stew. Eh, the kolaches were OK. I'll have to get there earlier to see if their sweet offerings are better.

I had a ham sandwich with lettuce. I also nuked a bowlful of frozen corn kernels and just topped with butter and coarse salt.

One of my smaller customers is a kolache store. They have the kind of kolaches that you are familiar with, as well as sausage rolls, and other meat rolls, which are what I am seeing in your photo.

Their cinnamon rolls are AMAZING!!!

This sounds delicious! I'm adding tinned clams and bottled clam broth to my list to have on hand in the pantry. I always have several kinds of pasta, and almost always garlic, shallots, and parsley. Craving this now.

You’re kidding, right? If you google linguini with clam sauce, you’ll get literally thousands of hits!
