A good series of days
I had a series of interesting days recently. Last Friday 13th was perhaps a bit unlucky. Anne came over and cooked up some veal with garlic butter that I was looking forward to. Anne cooked it medium but it was still rather tough. It had a good taste though. I expected veal to be tender. Some dear little calf gave up its life for my dinner. I do have some more veal in my freezer so I will dice it up and make it into curry. 3 hours in my crockpot should tenderize it.
Then on Saturday morning 14th we went to the Phams and I had a new offering there: Vietnamese lamb wrap. It was really good and a surprisingly big meal
Than at 10am the incomparable Jason arrived. He has been very ill but can now get about again and his wonderful brain was as sharp as ever. He is our guru for our computer museum and knows Amiga computers down to the tiniest depths. And when he left he had got a 500mb hard drive going for us and had fixed up a wobbly SCART port on one of our few Amiga monitors
Joe felt a bit drained by the great infusion of knowledge Jason had put into him so after Jason had left he took us to Subway for a late lunch. I have never found subway to be much good but Joe knows them well. I ordered a Teriyaki footlong which was really good. Joe always orders the seafood roll there.
Then on Sunday 15th Joe took us to Mos burgers for dinner again, with Eugene coming too. They were out of beef! So I had a chicken burger instead which was just as good.
Then Monday 16th was our usual Nando's night with just Joe, Jenny and myself. They have some sort of BLAT there that I like. The thing I used to order there -- thighs and slaw -- has been discontinued
Then on Tuesday Anne made us Reuben sandwiches -- using some freshly cooked corned beef. They were a "best yet" for both of us. I got Anne to go a bit lightly on the Sauerkraut. Too much of it swamps the other tastes. The cheese she used was Jarlsberg
