my youngest daughter,

Felicia. We ordered 

the house salad,

greens, pecans,

blue cheese,

and maple


The summer rissoto

has colorful flower petals

as well as whole grains and

three cheese’s included.

I ordered the fancy bourbon

drink and Felicia ordered a

merlot or other red wine.

Sharing a meal makes

you feel “righteous,”

sometimes we eat

      • Of course, whoever would stop by we would invite to join us in the patio! One day soon I will post our separate photos of each other, out on the patio of “1808.” πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€

    • It was particularly yummy, Jill. I let Felicia choose since there are less visits this season to her “home” and Mama. I didn’t expect to love the risotto! It was very flavorful. Once or twice a week since we had this meal, she texts: “I need some colorful risotto!!”

    • I do this all the time, Fiona! I accidentally touch an edge of the comment and cellphone “thinks” I am finished with it. Usually there is an error and cut off sentence. I want to giggle and say, “No alcohol needed to mess up my own comments!” 🍹 🍷

    • Now is not the time to inquire but this sentence about being alone is temporary, since daughters, Mum, and Two Brains are all in your life. . . I’ll need to visit you soon to answer this. Can you believe my grandies is going to be two tomorrow? And a Double door’s post? Yikes! xoxo πŸ’– I’m on my own in my apartment, but usually either cook or order takeout. I may need to order the salad and rissoto and save half for the next day: soon. If you were close, we could have listened to this nice, younger man folk singer on the patio (every Wednesday in the summer. One block from my apartment. . . .) 😘 🌷

      • So my mother and three of my daughters are in England and my other daughter is in Kuala Lumpur. Hubble is back in the US now and I am still waiting for the Department of Homeland Securities to make their minds up that i am not public enemy number one. Or maybe I am and I never realized it!!

    • Beth, it is very true how you expressed the whole experience in this lovely way! It was so much more delicious than I expected! I was “rooting” for a couple other choices with the same salad. πŸ™‚

    • It was both of these things, so much like how you, your husband plus daughter or friends enjoy out. There was a young, wonderful folk singer performing, too. One of my favorite S & G songs, “Are you going to Scarborough Fair?” (“Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.”) 🎢

      • It sounds lovely.
        It’s funny that you mention Scarborough Fair. My husband and I recently watched a show on PBS that starred Michael Palin. It was a ghost story, and Scarborough Fair (a folk version) was a key part of the story.

    • You most certainly need to repair your space travel equipment from your other time traveling book, Shehanne and “skedaddle your way over here!!” xxxxxxx 🍷🍾🍷🍰

    • There is a decadent chocolate cheesecake but I love their freshly made plate full of beignets. They are sweet, covered in confectioners sugar and melt in your mouth. Mmmm! I wish they had a raspberry dessert 🍰 since Judy’s posts about tons of them in her gardens I have wished for cheesecake or shortcake with raspberries and whipped cream on top, Dan.

    • It was a dual purpose meal, fulfilling those two elements, Sarah. 😊 πŸ’« Have a wonderful rest of the week! I hope to get caught up with friends like you soon! xo πŸ’
