It was G’s birthday this weekend. I know, what a crummy time for a birthday. We had steak, broccoli and boiled potatoes to celebrate. Our local grocery store is often out of items when we want them, so I have to put things in the freezer so they will be ready when needed.
The pandemic has so changed the way we celebrate things. We used to have big parties and have a great time. This is now a thing of the past. Neither G or I see this changing back in the near future. I’m verklempt. I do love a good party.
As much as G loves steak, I enjoy steak salad. My favorite dressing is olive oil and balsamic vinegar reduction. If I run out and don’t have time to make my own, I usually buy Nonni’s. Although to be totally honest, I put that on every salad. I put blue cheese, parmesan, fruit, tomatoes, etc. on our salads. I make a decent crouton too, but it’s like gilding the lily. Don’t limit yourself to “greens” when there’s so many options out there.

It’s Christmas here, so I’ll get back to you in a week or so. I have games to play and movies to watch with the gkids. This is my idea of a riotous time in the age of Covid.
and remember: Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your family time. Big kiss, Lynn
