Official Dinner Thread for Wednesday the 11th

We visited Costco today so dinner included some Costco rotchik along with some spinach and a salad.

For my birthday, we ordered from our favourite Greek resto. We had planned to eat at a resto with a terrasse, but when I tried to make a reservation, they weren't answering their phone. Their booking site said that there were no reservations available for the 11th, so we decided to just order in.

I had lamb chops. Stirling had moussaka. All the platters come with a salad, rice pilaf, and roasted potatoes as well as garlic bread. We ordered a side of dolmadakia and a dessert of baklava cheese cake. We pulled a bottle of Henkell out of the fridge. It was, as usual, very good. It seemed particularly good today.

Happy birthday, taxy!

I dragged out a really old but well-loved recipe for stir fry beef and broccoli. The recipe is so old that the measurements for sesame oil and oyster sauce include "if available" as an admonition. I guess that was if you only had grocery stores for shopping. I was lucky. I could shop at Sam Wah Yick Kee Co on Cleveland's Chinatown when I worked downtown in the early 1970s. You could buy fresh fried chow mein noodles. So good!

Happy Birthday, taxlady.

We had butter noodles topped with a hamburger patty and brown gravy. Side was Brussels sprouts.

Jell-O and cream was dessert.
