Dinner with Patrick Jane

Gallery

Mr Boomdeeadda’s away, and I miss him, I really do but one perk is: dining on a whim and making one of  MY favorite meals.  Oooops that sounded a wee bit selfish.  I got  to craving a Caprese Salad  and thought I’d take a little walk for the groceries.  I was just  getting out my Mary Poppins’ umbrella when O-my-gosh, it started to downpour.  Plan B, drive four blocks to the market.

While there, I found these new breads call “Flat Out”.  I must say, my turkey/havarti/onion panino was delish.  Thumbs up on the “Flat Out” bread (only 140 calories per bread).

The ‘hands-down’ BEST Caprese Salad I’ve ever had is at  Lahaina Grill in Lahaina, Maui. The restaurant is rated #3 out of #179 on Trip Advisor but should be rated #1. The service is impeccable and the food and wine selection is incredible. Well now, MY Caprese Salad is nothing a chef would applaud but as an alternative to the usual mixed green salad, it’s easy breezy.  I enjoy it with Neuman’s Own Light Balsamic.  If you arrange it in a round fan, each yummy bite gets cheese and tomato.

I’m not sure what the rules are about drinking alone AND eating in front of the TV (miss manners look away), but it’s the only way I’ll ever enjoy dinner with Patrick Jane. Bon Appetite.

What’s that Patrick, you’d like the recipe?

  1. I *love* that you set up this beautiful meal for yourself. Caprese salad is one of my favorites and I’m also quite fond of Maui.

    Oh, and I just noticed one of your kitties, just visible in the background.

    • ha Petals, they do like to know what you’re up to don’t they? We like to have a nice meal most evenings, indulge & review the day. It’s so civilized but we feel entitled. The flowers were a gift from Dales daughter. I was asked to do the Eulogy, very honored.

      • It is civilized and a lovely way to end the day. We live in such a rush-rush society.

        What an honor indeed to eulogize someone like Dale. It must have been a bittersweet day, full of laughter and tears as you celebrated and mourned him.

      • Yes, you know I wasn’t entirely certain I would manage without tears, but I knew it meant the world to Deb and I just loved Dale like a Dad, so that helped immensely. Thanks again for your heartfelt messages.

Talk nerdy to me………..
