Grab a snack but dinner will be late, so leave room for it. Black Angus steaks smothered in onion cream. ("Be thou fish," sez Hardiman's Friday grace. He's gotta keep up his strenth for Lent ya know!) Mushrooms may be involved as well. And so forth. Ending with hot apple pie filling on vanilla ice cream. A modest but (we hope) tasty supper. By the time you arrive we should be in full cooking frenzy, since we finally replaced the smoked spices and herbs yesterday. Don't make me give it to the dog now.
Sigh.... we will have to content ourselves with chili cheese dogs for a large late lunch... but we got the dining room dug out finally and you simply must be there for the first use of the sterling.
Sunny and spring-breezy here. Perhaps the steaks will be grilled. Come ahead! Park in back in a "dry" spot and come in through the back as usual despite fire damage still evident. Watch the broken back step and the drips, especially inside the laundry room.
Got all the fixin's for Thai iced coffee too, and a new coffeepot just the right size.
