Out To Dinner

Sitting out in the emptiness of the bay.  The new header shows the sinking rays of the sun on the city and the Mexican smog.

We hadn’t been out to dinner in a while.  I suggested the Great Geezer pick a place, and we woke up at Tom Ham’s.  It used to be a steak house with oriental efforts.  Now it has been redone, restyled, and re-menued a bit beyond our budget.

Coming here gave us a wonderful break from the mundane.  He had a cheese plate then a whole sea bass with a great tapenade.  I had a beet and baby arugula salad with a hunk of grilled tuna followed by a scoop of pecan gelato.  We eat simply at home and this was a real treat.

I’m having a baked potato tonight.  What are you all eating for dinner tonight?

Himself and a whole sea bass.


Life is Really in the Footnotes:

    1. Linked here via OD. How I miss that site running properly. I also have an E-blogger account I use to post journal entries I want to publicly share on my Facebook page...the title of it is: This life is not a dress rehearsal

    2. Wow! That is a huge, scrumptious looking fish. I'm making chili and cornbread tonight. It's perfect for a cold, Midwestern night.

    3. Therapy for me yesterday, and an Atkins meal last night. Sleeping on my right side now, but not for long. Also walking the dogs everyday. Got rid of the mystery (Donna Leon) and went back to history. I want G's fish. Making miso salmon tonight. Dianne

    4. Wow, a whole fish, that must have been a big take home box! I'm making a meatloaf for tonight, with ground beef instead of my usual ground turkey. Had a yen to make it like dear old Mom's.

    6. That's a lot of fish! it looks delicious.
      Today my main meal will be stir-fry chicken with rice (middle of day, not evening.)
      Yesterday I paid off a large bill and so my main meal was a private celebration, with fillet steak.

    9. That is one huge fish and I have been working so hard on cutting down in my eating that I actually could not have eaten more than a third of that baby along with side dishes!! We came back from visiting grandkids for Halloween, shopping at the mall, taking in a movie and getting home at 6:30...so it was a frozen pizza dinner.

    As the trees outside our windows faded into twilight, I cranked up my computer.  NASA offered a wonderful way to watch yesterday’s...
