Day 338, Easy Sunday..

How can you go wrong with a Sunday that starts with breakfast and a nap?  Unless you have more pressing things to do, they were good choices today.  Breakfast was breakfast potatoes (slice potatoes, onion, olive oil, paprika, Cajun seasoning to taste, cook over medium heat until potatoes are soft enough to eat.), dipping eggs, pork roll and coffee from New Orleans.  DS2 gave me the evil eye when I offered him some potatoes to go with his cheese omelet. I told him that I did not use any hot sauce today. I like to add hot sauce to my breakfast potatoes. Only DS3 and I like them that way and he was already at work when I made breakfast. 

DS3 had his second day at the bark and biscuit today. He came home smiling today. Yesterday, he was a little out of sorts after work. Today he was happier. He likes dogs and this is a perfect way for him to get his dog fix, get paid and not have to take care of your own pet. Tonight he went to the birthday party for one of his high school friends. DS2 worked the afternoon shift at the deli. He said it was slooow today. He is off until Thursday.  Being that the store is in a summer resort area, this early in the season Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be slow. Once we get closer to the Fourth of July, they will be busy everyday.

DS1 had the day off. He magically disappeared for a few hours in the middle of the day to go to the gym. It just so happens that his gym time was at the same time that his parents brought home groceries from the store and were looking for help carrying the food in and putting it away. They certainly know how to show up for meals. I’m just saying.  He has to call his boss at 6 am to see if he is working tomorrow.

Dinner tonight was flounder francese, mako bites, fresh mozzarella, shrimp cocktail and steamed clams. The mako bites were a single mako shark steak with the skin taken off, cut into bite sized pieces.  I marinated the shark in olive oil, lemon juice and greek seasoning. Then they were pan-fried in the marinade. I liked them. The family thought that there may have been too much greek seasoning on the bites.  I did not add any hot sauce, come on people!

Tonight’s picture comes from August 2008. We had a hailstorm that covered the ground and wrecked the garden pretty bad. Here are some flamingo lights attached to the back deck gazebo still working after the storm. Behind the lights you can see the top is pretty messed up from the hail.  Enjoy!
