DH had dental work today, so I made him a tuna noodle casserole - nice and soft I had a leftover pork chop and scalloped ham and potato.

I had a particularly painful physio session today and rested most of the afternoon. I had planned a great celebration dinner for DH because he starts work tomorrow and did his first aid ticket today, but really wasn't up for it so he brought home deluxe burgers from a little place around the corner called Vera's. It was delicious.

vera's?

did he look a little unkempt, maybe abused, but strangely satisfied when he got home?

please don't tell me that you ordered vera's bleu cheese burgers...

ok, i'll stop. it's just too much good material.



we had takeout italian tonight, from a new place across town. it was pretty good. the owner is such a pleasent and friendly fellow that, along with the quality of the food, i think we've found a new regular place to order from.

we had salads with balsamic dressing, veal marsala, chicken sorrentino, a side of sauteed garlic with some broccoli , pasta, and my boy had pepperoni pizza.

I don't know how elaine makes hers, but the way my mom made it is very simple. 1 can cr. of celery soup, 1 can milk, 1-2 cans of tuna fish. Heat up and serve over toast or rice. You could also make a white sauce, add sauted onions and celery and serve.

It is one of the best you will find! I love the jalapeno "bottle caps". I usually get the Vera Burger and add provolone, mushrooms and bottle caps to it!
