Elder citizens tend to eat less as they get older. They are not as active as a 20 y.o. Which is great for the grocery bill. And if you are not gaining weight, then there is a good chance you could lose some unwanted pounds. My eating has decreased so much that I have gone from 160 lbs. to 120 lbs. this past year. Something my doctor has yelled at me for. But being only 4'7", my weight should be 97lbs. I will settle for just 100 lbs.

I know what you mean about going out for a meal. My daughter took me out to a local seafood restaurant for Mother's Day. I ordered fried clams. One of my ultimate foods. They give you a lot. I told them to hold the F.F. potatoes. So they gave me extra clams and a bigger helping of cole slaw and fried onion rings in place of the F.F. We went to eat at around three in the afternoon. I made sure I didn't have a bite all day. Surprise of surprises. I actually cleaned my plate. I left the onion rings on my plate. It has been more that a year since I ate that much in one sitting. But I love clams. Lobster, Crab, Oh just seafood in general.

Since they predicted nice today/rain tomorrow, we figured we'd do the "Fathers' Day" grill today. I guess the rain found out - it drizzled on Himself while he grilled.

Split a romaine in half, drizzled with OO, and grilled. Topped with bacon, egg, and tomato and drizzled with a dressing made from the bacon drippings, white balsamic vinegar, and fresh-ground pepper. Followed that up with grilled corn, double-thick pork chop, and half-of-a-half grilled potato plank (a lonely leftover). Himself grilled the corn first; while he cooked the chops I cut the corn off the cob and tossed it with shallot sauteed in browned butter and mixed with fresh-cut basil. Lawdy, that there was some good eatin'!

We went to our favourite, local Italian resto, Scarolie's.

Stirling had:
Farfullo Arrosto
Chopped Roasted Italian Sausage, Tomato Sauce, Garlic, Roasted Bell Peppers, Shallots And White Wine
And I had:
Linguini Pescatore
Tomato Sauce, Garlic, Anchovies, Capers, Mussels, Shrimps, Scallops, Calamari, Clams And White Wine
But, they gave me an aglio e olio sauce instead the tomato sauce, 'cause the tomatoes in the sauce came out of a can. And I got the whole wheat linguini they make in house. That meal was soooo good. There was a lot, so I brought at least half of it home. I get to have it again!

We had Lamberti Pino Grigio with supper. It was lovely.

Love the pic CG, that looks fabulous...! Everyone's dinners tonight sounds so good.

I grilled a pork shoulder steak this afternoon, and threw some of the fresh veggies I got from the farm stand this morning on the grill as well. I was only able to eat maybe half, but I expected that and wrapped up the leftovers to nibble on tomorrow.

The potatoes were from the farm stand too, I steamed them while the pork steak was grillin', then fried them quickly in a little butter, garlic and parsley while the meat was resting. All I need now is chocolate something, but I don't have any. Waaaahh...
