yes, I know, and I am so sorry!

mine isn't bad, but the place she picked for her birthday dinner wasn't anywhere I'd like to go back to. It was japanese, you know, the kind where they cook at your table. But, the soup was unsalted chicken broth with 2 mushroom slices, the salad was the kind you get out of a bag with weird curdly dressing, the vegetables were only onions, mushrooms and zuchinni (the cheapest you can get), the meat portions were TINY and for 6 people, after the tip, was $165 - what a rip!

Dang! That sounds bad!! There's a place like that that we have gone to a few times & everything is great & the portions are huge!

My MIL just does & says things to push my buttons just to see how upset she can get me. She also does it to one of my other SILs. But the other SIL is treated like gold.

I do have the upper hand - the only other DIL lives in another state...and I have the only grandkids.

Oh crud - dryer is beeping - can you put out the avocado egg rolls for the lunch crowd?
(taste one - they're really good!) Oh, and I got a call that we're having another tourbus coming through this afternoon. So, gear up!

I'll man the fort until you're back crewsk. I have two huge pans of apple crisp in the oven so we'll be able to feed the bus crowds well!

Whew! <<tossing apron back on the counter>>
Those folks were hungry! PA, they ate all the apple crisp and asked for seconds, so I gave them muffins to go. Crewsk, they loved the beef sammies too.

I wish Sushi would pop his head in - it's weird not seeing the boss around too much anymore.
I've just put a chocolate marble bundtcake into the oven for the next few guests. Anyone want to whip up some creamed cheese frosting?
Well, now that it's quiet again, I'm going to put on ladybugs on the roses - I noticed aphids on some, and we don't want to bring those into the cafe!
I'll be out in the garden if anyone needs me.

Yeah, it is quiet without Sushi here.

Oh, there are some praying mantis on the way to help the lady bugs with the aphids! I hate those little critters. Which reminds me, I need to go out & check my roses again.

I'm planting these between the rose garden and the salsa garden for extra color - what do you think?

Thanks so much for making the frosting!
Now, on to the eggplant lasagna for tonight.
What other specials should we have?

and more importantly...what is in the UPS box? It's driving me crazy!

Those are beautiflu! I think they'll look great!!

No problem, glad I could help! I'll get some French bread & garlic butter started for dinner.

It's such a small box compared to what Sushi normally orders. I wonder if it'll break if we shake it?
