January 20th – Best Laid Plans…

The sun is shining but it isn’t throwing much heat so far this morning. At least it is warm inside and the sun makes for a cheery view out the window.

Once again, we didn’t spend an impressive amount of time in the kitchen yesterday. We had to go out to pick up bread so Dan decided he should take me out to Houston’s for supper. Fun fact… Dan and my first ‘formal’ date was on Dan’s birthday. He and his father went to his aunt’s for supper and then he picked me up to go to a show. After some discussion as to what show to see, we made our first poor decision together as a couple. We went to see ‘The English Patient’. On our way home we stopped at Houston’s for coffee. They have since relocated to new premises but it is still our ‘special’ place. (We haven’t been back to the theatre.)

So, while it is not homemade, I enjoyed my supper last night.

Supper at Houston’s

I did put out a call to my sisters and nieces in an effort to share some home cooking with you. Lorraine was the only one who answered the call and her offering fell a bit short.


All is not lost. If you have gotten this far, I did make breakfast this morning! Using a couple of leftover biscuits, a couple of sausage patties, a couple of eggs, and a couple of slices of cheese – I whipped up a couple of breakfast biscuits.

Breakfast is served!

That is it for today! Time to venture out to the supermarket. Take care and have a great day!

  1. The English Patient. I am usually easy to please at the movies. I will watch and enjoy most anything. But the English Patient was one of the longest, slowest, and dullest experiences of my life. I never understood all the acclaim.

  2. It was one of the most pointless movies we have seen. That was in the days when I was working 80 hours a week. It says a lot for the company that I did not sleep all the way through it. 🙂


  3. Hmm…The English patient is one of my favourite books and I enjoyed the movie as an accompaniment to the book. It’s hard for me to say if I would have enjoyed it as much if I hadn’t read the book though. i hope that you managed to find some other movies that you both liked after your relationship survived this movie 🙂
