Saturday the 14th dinner thread?

am i missing something? i don't see the "what's fer dinner" thread for today, saturday the 14th.

well, i'll start it with 20 or so minutes to go.

we had my family's annual get together at my sister's mansion today (the lucky one who married a wall street guy ) to celebrate my mom's 86th and my dad's 89th birthdays, and my nephew's recent graduation from marist college. it was a really nice day, and i was thrilled to see one of my sisters who lives far away, and her children, two of which are serving in the military (air force and army). i also got to meet the new wife of the nephew that's in the army, a really sweet girl from virginia. they are currently stationed in oklahoma city and are loving it.

ah, young love.

that'll end soon.

lol, j/k.


anyway, we ate some good food at my sis's. sausage n peppers, fried chicken, pulled pork, an italian hero, and mac and potato salads, but it was early so i picked up a sushi/sashimi combo on the way into work tonight:






unfortunately, the ambience and atmosphere of where i have to eat it ain't so great:



overtime is nice, but boy would i rather be sitting in a nice sushi bar right now.


so, did anyone else eat today?

Sounds like a lovely family meal Tom

The young love ending soon...gee you crack me up

The sushi meals look delicious, but yes, the sushi bar would have been a bit nicer LOL

Great food though!

We are not having tea for a few hours yet, it is only 1:50pm here, we have only just had lunch

buckytom...OMGosh...that looks amazing! I love California rolls and the sashimi looks so bright and fresh - I only get to have that loveliness every couple of months or so when I am at my daughter's on the west coast. Great pics - even the one in front of the computer, must make the overtime a bit nicer.

Congrats to all your family members who are celebrating so many special occasions. Sounds like a wonderful family get together.

Tonight was a simple pasta dinner - linguine, garlic, basil, and roasted red peppers in a chicken broth base. Topped with Parmigiano Reggiano.

Thanks. I would have taken a picture of it plated, but by the time I covered the slices with the mushroom/onion gravy I made and added the potato and sugar snap peas... well, it tasted better than it plated. I was in hunger mode.
