So, we got to the bakery late and had them make up sandwiches so we could eat on the way back as TB has to go to work soon.

We will have the salmon tomorrow.
Yikes!!

Yes, salmon tomorrow!

Wow, that was a close run thing LPB! Glad you are okay (and nobody else suffered any major injuries). Not surprised it ruined your plans!

I had the smoked tuna salad I mentioned yesterday, along with anything else I could find in the fridge - so it was lettuce, cooked beetroot, boiled egg, boiled Charlotte potatoes, cucumber and tomatoes. I made a dressing with red wine vinegar, EVOO, grated garlic, sugar and finely chopped mint and parsley.

Oh and I made some blueberry butterfly cakes as well. (They are to share with colleagues tomorrow though - so I only had one - for quality control purposes, naturally!)

I'm glad to hear that you are alright, albeit shaken. Thank goodness he remembered the emergency brake. I bet lots of folks forget it exists.

Too hot to cook and I can't trust that the power won't go out while I was cooking, so we ordered from Bofinger, a local "Southern style BBQ" resto. They make some really good ribs. Stirling ordered a sausage sandwich with fries, and I ordered beef ribs with bean salad.

Gotta run, the food is here.

Tonight I made an awesome dinner. Flanken cut short ribs cooked for hours with onions, garlic, new potatoes, butter beans, topped with roasted peppers. . Used the broth it cooked in to cook cous cous. Yummy

Oh yeah, that was yummy and I have two ribs left for snacking. We were out of beer and wine, so we had Margaritas with supper. <hick>

It's Wednesday - dinner out with friends night. It's also Restaurant Week in Norfolk, so we went to a wonderful restaurant that has consistently great food. I had pork/shrimp spring rolls with two sauces, seasoned grilled mahi mahi with corn/poblano risotto, and chocolate chess pie with Chantilly cream. So yummy. I'm going to steal that risotto idea.
