Meatloaf!

It's not my night to cook, so I'm not complaining about the menu...

Shrimp Florentine was yummy with Angel Hair. Even Magnificent Maggie the bulldog enjoyed some.

Met old friends in tourist area. Dinner with view of boat harbor. Merlot, calamari, warm salmon salad, coffee, brownie sundae. Crowds everywhere, hotels are full this week. Mostly very young people milling around. We declined the great opportunity to board fishing boats for 2 hour $40 ride out into the surprisingly warm evening to watch fireworks. SO gets seasick and other couple never cruises. Watched very young cute guy fail to pick up young hip lady at bus stop, he came back for a second try, no go.

The last turkey sandwich. We would have had a nice meal, but everyone was rushing off to different places.

Tradition here is pork cooked in sauerkrout with mashed potatoes.
Have that on New Year's day and you will have good luck all year.

Actually I love sauerkraut and mash, and pork.

In reality everything gives me gas these days. I think I either must have been a cow in an earlier life, or am already meta morphing into one now

We went to a local Creole/Italian restaurant for lunch, and ordered our favorite - - tomato basil chicken. Mmmmmm...

One of my favorite meals when I was a kid. Mom cooked spare ribs in the kraut. Then the kraut over the mashed potatoes. My brother's wife fixes this every New Years Day for good luck. An old German custom. It was good then but I like bar-b-que ribs better.
