Update for Thursday night dinning out

A while back I posted about our Thursday night dining place called "The Links". I had said that there was nothing special about the inside but they recently did a upgrade and it is pretty nice so will show you some pictures of it.

Golfers hats displayed on gold clubs. These use to be above the bar.
All new paint and new chairs...
New fun sign and pretty ceiling lighting...

Bigger dinning room
Glass enclosed dinning area looking out to the golf course

The bar area and see that guy with the bare leg? That is my hubby and our favorite sitting place.

A little inside advertisement and how clever to add the golf bag.

Sleep tight

Do you know how "Sleep tight" got started?

It comes from the fact that early mattresses were filled with straw and held up with rope stretched across the bedframe. A tight sleep was a comfortable sleep.

Tuesday night dinners

Tuesday night dinners catch up (this will be pretty simple because few were good enough to share the recipe)
This was sautéed Brussels sprouts and sausage sprinkled with parmesan cheese and a new microwave potato recipe. The potatoes were blah and the combination of sausage and Brussels sprouts weren't good. Not a keeper.
Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy and peas and mushrooms. This is not a new recipe but a oldie and it was good with the exception that the steak was tough as nails!
This is a pork stew cooked in the crock pot and the only good part was the mozzarella cheese on top.
However I made a small batch of corn bread and it was good and I have often used cream cheese with chives to stuff celery but this time I also added some small slices of cranberries and it was really good.

Thank you to all veterans for your service.

Wed. night dinning place

On Wed. nights we alternate between two places....

The name of this place is Heroes and it is owned by a three time purple heart Vietnam veteran. This is his parking place. It is pretty much a sports bar but with a big heart.

When you enter one of the first things you will see is this big cardboard with signatures of veterans, fireman, policeman and etc.

Had the opportunity of seeing a veteran in a wheelchair sign this board.

Mike's metals
                                                      This is Mike when serving.

This is our favorite place to sit and when it is nice out they open the windows like this.

  A table for those not forgotten

A special place with great pizza

Our other Wed. night place is
Our view from the bar

Love the spareribs here......

That little strawberry hooked to you pincushion

… is an emery board for your needles. Filled with tough emery sand—a combination of aluminum and iron oxides—the strawberry is historically a tool for polishing, sharpening, and removing rust from your pins and needles.

Look what I found..

The cooler weather brought these and they smell divine...
Weather here has been in the 70's, our reward for putting up with the hot summer.

Threw this together this morning for breakfast and it was really good so thought I would share...
I took one flour tortilla out of the freezer (I keep them in a freezer bag and separate them with foil) and heated it in the micro till barely warm.
I fried a egg and broke the yoke so there would be no runny. I put shredded cheese on the tortilla added one slice of ham from the deli and put the egg cut in slices on top of the ham and added more cheese. Folded it over and cooked it in the skillet until lightly browned on both sides. Yum...

Thought I would share some pictures of a hospital volunteer day..
Heavy traffic driving in
Pretty vegetation along the way...
Selling hay here and they are covered because of the rains...
Headed into the hospital are these amazing grasses...
Banner Thunderbird Hospital is a level 1 adult trauma Center.
Main entrance
Looking to the left of entering..
The elevator doors open on the second floor and there is our desk

My view sitting at the desk
One area of the waiting room
The ICU doors we have to open for visitors, on the west side is the CVICU doors

You can tell I sit on the left because there is my yarn:) (actually my partner didn't come today) so I was on my own. This week I had a opportunity to help a person who was blind and waiting on a loved one having surgery.
