When I wrote about our meal on Friday, I mentioned that I was greatly disappointed with it... Give up and complain? No, I prepared a second meal for Saturday night! We had shrimp fetticcini alfredo, with peas on the side. MUCH better meal, despite
J hating parmesan (stinky cheese!) He has admitted, that he likes the flavor, just can't eat anything that "stinks..." WUSSSS! I did choose a recipe that called for a minimal amt of parmesan, but I had bought some "good" stuff at the local market, so as
to skip the junk in the "jar." I can't say that I noticed any odor once I'd grated some parm, but I swear, he can smell doggy doo in the house, FROM OUTSIDE! Thankfully, he did not complain, but I was able to keep him out of the kitchen while the sauce was
cooking... I figured that once the burner was turned off, the extractor fan should suck the stink out of the kitchen, regardless, we ate and enjoyed!
Today for lunch, I wanted something quick-easy, so put some of the garden/grain salad in a bowl, added a hefty amt of grated mozzerella, salami, and doused it all in Italian dressing... MUCH better!!!
On a different note, I've been kicking around the idea of buying a vehicle, suitable for trips to Home Depot, and Costco, but then as little as I drive, seems the expense would be "stupid," as I have no intention of trading my Convertible! Had to chuckle yesterday,
however, when I saw "Terminator 2" (or was it 3?) In the middle of the movie, Arnie steels a HEARSE of all things, and remembered that for years, here in this part of town, a person drove a "retired" hearse, who's license plate read simply, "HEARSE." Thought
that it would be a hoot to tootle around town in a retired hearse, with the vanity plate reading LAST RIDE, shortened of course, as we can only have 7 figures!!! Guess I have a somewhat warped sense of humor... but I suspect that I could buy an old hearse
for far less than a truck, mini van, or sport utility!
Well, all, keep bein' crazy, I don't want to be the only one!!
