What's for dinner Thursday?

patti43September 6, 2012

We are home after a wonderful 2 days out of the kitchen :-) We had a great time with the grandkids and they had a great time, too. It was so pretty in Homasassa I hated to leave, but the kids have another grandmother to visit before the go home to California.

We ate at the Freezer last night so I have a lot of leftover shrimp. I sure would love to have their recipe for the spices they cook it in. I know there's red pepper and Old Bay. Just delicious. So we're having leftover shrimp with some deli bought baked potato salad and cole slaw.

Had to have a nap when we got home and got unpacked. Those kids have a LOT of energy!!

I've read what you've been eating and everything sounded so good! What are you having tonight?

Glad you had a good visit! Tonight is lazy night for me. I have to save my energy to curse out those I don't care for on Project Runway. Just kidding. Tonight will be Philly cheesesteaks and garlic rosemary olive oil baked fries.

I am glad you had such a good time with grandkids. As always, I am envious of your fresh shrimp. Tonight I am going out to eat at Mom's School House Diner, but don'[t know yet what I will order. It is indeed an old school house several miles outside of town. Has a 1950's decor and the waitress (one!) wears a poodle skirt, ankle socks and I think a neck scarf. The owner/cook wears a name tag identifying herself as Mom and she chats with everyone. All homecooked food. Fun.

Hi, ShedTheChryalis (I love that name). Those rosemary OO fries sound yummy!

Thanks, Pam. It was a great time. IMHO, you have to eat in dives to get good seafood in Florida :-) Funny thing about your restaurant--there was a restaurant someplace around Palm Harbor in Pinellas Co. called the School House. The menu was on a chalk board and it really was a tiny little school house. Their food was the same--all homemade stuff like meatloaf and mac and cheese. Enjoy!!

So good you got to be with your grandchildren. I went shopping today with two of my daughters and little granddaughter, Alyssa. We had fun shopping in Joann Fabrics. While they shopped in Kohl's I read a book. Then to Fazoli's for lunch specials. Really good lasagne and fettuccine Alfredo, all the bread sticks and beverages you want too. So nothing for me this evening. Had a fun day.

Sue, glad you are out of the kitchen today--and had fun with the kids. You're so lucky to have them close!

Glenda, where are you? I thank you for starting the post while I was gone, but I miss reading about your lunch today.

Patti, glad you had a wonderful time with your GD and her DH, bet you hated to see them leave.

Tonight we are having oyster stew and it sure smells good.

Pam, I wish we had someplace fun with good home cooking near where we live. Mom's looks like a real neat place to eat out.

So glad your visit was enjoyable.

Today my Garden club took a bus trip up to the lake in Conroe and had a lovely lunch aboard a great big river boat paddle wheel. We cruised around the lake while having lunch. It was a beautiful day although quite hot out doors.
That really wore me out so I had to nap.
I have a big deli pizza for dinner tonight.
