Our dinner at Carrabba's was delicious! Chris, Sonsearae, Bobby, Jim and I had a good time sharing this meal. Jim and I shared some steamed mussels then our soup and salad arrived. Jim had a Caesar salad while I 'enjoyed' a bowl of minestrone. I'm not sure there is one recipe for minestrone but the soup I had was really 'different', it had cabbage! and no pasta. Tasty nonetheless.
For out meal I chose Tag Pic Pac, not sure how it got that name but it's pasta made with delicious tomatoes, basil and garlic. Of course I brought most of mine home. Jim had chicken with garlic mashed potatoes, I forget the name of the dish. He brought some home.
Three of us shared a bottle of Gabbiano Chianti wine which is a favorite of mine.
Dessert was three different kinds! Tiramisu of course, mini cannoli and a butter cream cake with fruit. All of them very tasty.
Once home we just relaxed. I know I watched a couple hours of Hawaii on Nat Geo and Jim played a game on his computer. Neither one of us got hungry until after eight o'clock. He made himself a peanut butter sandwich with honey and I had some popcorn.
We spent the evening watching PBS. A show about Royal Clothing, Poldark and The Crimson Field. The last two shows are series and I think we'll continue to watch them.
We have our cooling unit for the refrigerator, it arrived last Friday. Not sure when it will be installed. Also on Friday a Sears repairman came out and confirmed our wash machine needs a new control panel, ouch! It was ordered and he'll be back on the 29th to repair it. So I'll continue doing laundry next door for a wee bit longer.
Jim has a doctor appointment on the 9th of July. That's what we have to look forward to the next couple of weeks.
All is right in our world
