Re: What Did You Have For Dinner Last Night?

I'm an absolute heel. If this hadn't been so last minute and I'd actually had time to think about inviting people (The Hubby sort of "sprung" on me Saturday night that we were having a party Sunday) I very honestly would likely have thought of you. Seriously, because I did remember that your wife was away. I feel awful (which I know you didn't intend.) I'll try to make it up to you next time.
Hey no worries, I can give someone a guilt trip like the little old grandmother you haven't called in 6 months.

I was tied up dealing with that health crisis anyway. Probably good that I was around, her bf is a complete doofus.

Plus my wife would have thought something was fishy if I told her I was willingly hanging out with a lawyer.

Is that some kind of vegetarian bacon?
Funny thing is, I'm not even vegetarian. I just loathe all things pig, and LOVE facon.

Seriously made me laugh, only in my life it's my mom, not my grandmother. Grandma just seems happy whenever I call. Mom, on the other hand ....

And, yeah, I'm not big on socializing with other lawyers, either. Boring as all hell.

To the matter at hand, yesterday I made pesto with basil from The Hubby and my MIL. So last night I made one of my favorite pesto dishes. I smoked some nice Alaskan salmon and accompanied that with a nice, fresh penne pesto with tomatoes (from The Hubby's little garden plot), asparagus tips, a little red pepper and sun-dried tomato. I'd meant to make enough to have left overs for lunch today but ....

Beef fillets, wrapped in bacon, green beans with Mrs. Dash, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, and a side of corn bread.

Engineers aren't known for our social prowess either, and don't get me started on my Mom, it ain't pretty.

I love the idea of everything you mentioned other than the pesto. I just haven't tried the right one yet.

Something about burping it out for 3 days afterwards that has always turned me off to it.

Lots of vintage champagne to celebrate yesterday's birthday (couldn't go out yesterday because of work, so went out today instead), followed by a smashing meal at a local decent brasserie. The rhubarb brulee for dessert was particularly fun.

... ummmmmm ..., yeah ..., about that .... When you decide it's time to buy a house (as you mentioned somewhere else), we should talk. REALTORS(R) aren't the highest forms of life (I can say that, I spend my life dealing with their f**k-ups), but they're often necessary to the process, and they tend to have a particularly low opinion engineers as clients (believe it or not, attorneys juuuuuust beat you out by a hair - for whatever that's worth.)

I love the idea of everything you mentioned other than the pesto. I just haven't tried the right one yet.
Yeah, it took me several years to come up with a good recipe. It seems so simple, but definitely takes some doing to get it right.

And, I do have to admit, this wasn't my best. The basil was getting a little "long in the ..., er ... leaf."

Something about burping it out for 3 days afterwards that has always turned me off to it.
Basil-intolerant, perhaps?

Found out some really bad family medical news today, I'll be lucky if I have anything other than whisky for dinner.

Sorry to hear that Smoothy X. Had tortilla pizzas for dinner last night and left over Dominoe's the night before that.

I'm really sorry to hear this. I hope it's nothing too serious, or something that is resolved as positively as possible. I'll be sending positive thoughts your way.

*edit* Oh, and in keeping with the theme of the thread, making fajitas and frijoles negros tonight. That seems like such a frivolous thing to add, after Smoothie's post.

Sadly, no. The old man took a turn for the worse last night. Looks pretty bleak right now.

I ended up getting Chinese takeout and watching the Steelers-Titans game. It was semi-therapuetic.
