DINNER: Tuesday, September 30, 2003

We had to run out to the mall this evening, because we thought that one of Wendy’s birthday presents had arrived. Since its announcement, Wendy has been anxiously awaiting the AGE OF MYTHOLOGY expansion, TITANS.

At the mall, we were disappointed to learn that the Sept 30 date was a ship date, not an in-store date, so we couldn’t get the game for Wendy tonight.

Against both of our better judgement, we ate at the mall’s food court at a place called ASIAN CHOW. Wendy had Bourbon Chicken and I had Orange Chicken. Both of us experienced "gastric distress" after eating there. I don’t think their steam table is hot enough.

Ugh.

DINNER: Saturday, October 4, 2003

Most of the “Punta Cana Gang” met tonight at Ray & Belinda’s house for drinks before going out together for dinner at Buca di Beppo.

Without Max & Marie there to complete the “Gang”, we were only operating at 75% capacity, but we managed to have a good time anyway. After a giant dinner at the restaurant, it was back to Ray & Belinda’s to look longingly at the desserts that wouldn’t fit in our over-stuffed bellies.

DINNER: Monday, October 6, 2003

Tonight was LEFTOVER FOR DINNER night. After culinary class, in which we worked on poultry, there was plenty of food left over. I’ve gotten wise and take storage containers with me to each class.

I brought home some duck breast with carmelized apples, roasted turkey, and Chicken Legs Grandmere (boned chicken thighs & legs that we stuffed with a bread stuffing, rolled, baked, and sauced).

That’s what we ate!
