Normally, Friday night is for tappas plates and those soft pretzels from Philly. However, I'm in love with a pizza junkie; and I'm just not up to making pizza from thin air tonight..

So, after a phone call to Bazzarelli's, I'll pick up a pie with meatballs and ricotta, an order of sweet mussels, and a sausage stromboli.

I believe after a round or two of cocktails, we'll end the evening with a nice chianti....and hopefully a dip in the hot tub.

have some bacon and eggs with some toast, let your heart feel lighter because it's pretty easy to do and with your weather today, a simple and simply delicious easy dinner is just what the doctor ordered.

Maybe they were trying to build up your appetite.
Wait a minute.... you meant the bug didn't you?

So anyway.... the crab legs will wait til tomorrow because I don't feel like hurrying their thawing along, so I subbed in a couple baked potatoes to take their place on the plate.

Lefse / pacanis.... it was disgusting! It was sitting right on top like they put it there.... a garnish perhaps? He sat it down and I pointed and said "There is a bug on the bread!" I can't believe the server did not see it.

I made a pot of chili and it turned out pretty good. In addition to the usual chili beans, I added a can of garbanzo beans and for a garnish we had sliced avocado, cilantro and colby jack cheese.

That's pretty disgusting alright, sattie. I would have left on the spot.

My dinner hit the spot. I couldn't believe how flavorful this broccoli was. I wonder what country it came from

In a way I am taking you up on that - making fettuccine carbanara, which is essential bacon and eggs with cream and parmesan over noodles. Yes, the weather is crummy, I have been feeling achy because of it and this is nice easy comfort food!

Sattie, sorry about your buggy bread. I don't know how these places stay in business sometimes!

Leftovers here. Last of the casserole that was supposed to have been Tuesday's meal and tons and tons and tons of cake mix cookies. They're good, but I'm still going to be up to my butt in cookies this time next week.
