Er, um actually I'll be a little further north that day. Like off WA mile marker 127 on I-5.

Computers let you make more mistakes faster than any other invention in human history, with the possible exception of handguns and tequilla.

I can get to Breezy's before either of you. I really like the seafood idea.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

You all know that someone, and I do mean someone, has to work if you eat at home. Y'all know that I love to cook, I really do, and my husband does as well. But there are dishes to wash, stove to clean, etc. Not fun stuff. So, yes, I want to be taken out. My husband made the reservations a week ago. The place is within walking distance. No chores for anyone.

Yes, there are always "some" dishes, but that's why I do the lobsters. I normally buy the appetizer(s) & dessert, so all I end up with is the lobster pot, a small saucepan for the melted butter, & a baking sheet for the appetizers & shoestring potatoes. Not a big deal.

Since V-day will be on a Saturday this year, I don't mind the being in the kitchen. I have it pretty easy anyway with HH being such a meat and potatoes fan.

Scalloped potatoes (I may use Boursin for the cheese this time)
Caesar salad (daughter's fave)
flourless chocolate cake (I have a ton of eggs to use up)
some kind of fruit coulis for the cake; thinking of mandarin oranges this time
Kool Aid - Think before you drink.
