Recently, Dave and I have been going to the same Chinese place for, of all things, their sushi bar. It’s one of those all-you-can-eat buffet places, and at first my sushi snobbishness got in the way. But last Thursday (usually we go on Fridays, but we were going to a concert that day) I finally gave it a chance, and oh boy! The sushi chef made me some salmon and tuna nigiri to order and it was as fresh and delicious as the nigiri I’d gotten at Whole Foods during the week…and way less expensive.
Friday night, Dave and I met Andrea and Bill at Bull Run in Shirley to see the still amazing Johnny Winter. If you go see him…BRING EAR PLUGS! Cause, apparently…JOHNNY LIKES IT LOUD! SO loud, in fact, that to me it sounded distorted. So I stuck my fingers in my ears…lo and behold, I could hear him sing and play clearly! That night was pretty foggy and on the way there, I almost hit a cat that decided to do a U-turn in the road. I was a bit stressed when I got there, and without me saying it, Andrea noticed and just gave me a hug. It helped!
This weekend, we were supposed to watch Dave’s grandsons, but because the younger one was sick, Dave went over there by himself since we didn’t want me exposed to more germs and getting sick again. So Saturday, Wolf and I took a ride to the beach! It was a warm-ish (for here) day. Wolf loved it! Every time he sees a mussel shell, he tries to bury it in the sand. Dig, dig, dig, I tell him! I stopped for a slice of pizza afterwards and parked nearby where the old Frolics used to be. Many many memories of concerts at that place in my 20s. I also cleaned the condo, vacuumed and hand washed the floors and did some rearranging.
Sunday, I was going to clean and organize more, but … the best of intentions and all that. I rented the movie, The Help and enjoyed the heck out of it. Made some buttermilk and cornmeal waffles and buttermilk chicken for dinner. Both were delicious! Click on the link for the recipe, if you’re so inclined. I also made a big pot of 15 bean soup, which I ladled into pint mason jars for my lunch next week (and extra to share with a friend at work who likes my cooking).
And that was about it!
How was your weekend?
