Wednesday, Farmer H and I loaded up A-Cad to drive a half hour to meet for lunch with my best old ex-teaching buddy Mabel and her husband. The Truth in Blogging Law requires me to inform you that Farmer H actually loaded A-Cad. With Chex Mix and Mabel's birthday + Christmas gifts, and a multitude of fancy auction frames and a heavy mirror.
For lunch, Farmer H and Mabel and Mabel's Hub all ordered from the breakfast menu. Mabel had a biscuit and gravy with a cheese omelet with extra cheese. Mabel's Hub had eggs over easy and pancakes, and Farmer H also had eggs over easy, with gravy. Well. I can't imagine why anyone would want to order breakfast at 11:00 a.m.! I had my usual meal from this restaurant: Chicken Quesadilla.
It was, as usual, DELICIOUS! I meant to get a picture when the plate arrived, but in my feeding frenzy, I barely caught myself in time to get a picture before it was all devoured. Mmm...just the right amount of crispness to the tortilla, chunks of chicken, cheese, red/green peppers, and onions. My only complaint (and you KNEW there'd be a complaint) was that I felt shorted on the salsa. It's like how Farmer H would have filled a paper cup of ketchup for me. I could eat all that salsa on one section of that quesadilla! Still, I rationed it, and came out even at the end, although I had some sour cream left.
After breakfast-lunch, we convened down the road a piece at Mabel's marvelous house, to catch up on recent happenings and relive old times. Farmer H had a captive audience in Mabel's Hub. They hit it off swimmingly when they first met several years ago, and there's never a lull in their conversation.
Farmer H sold Mabel most of his frames, threw in a couple of other gewgaws, and left her with more bargain treasures to decorate her marvelous house. Did I mention that Mabel's house is marvelous?
Mabel sampled the Chex Mix, just to be sure it was acceptable, you know, so she could turn it away if it wasn't up to standards. Heh, heh! Like THAT would ever happen!
I scored some delectable homemade chocolate-covered cherries that I must ration to the tune of 1 per day. They are very sweet, and not a wise choice. But I plan to have one with supper every night.
A good (and delicious) time was had by all, and we plan to do it again in February.
