Hey!!!! I thought I was supposed to be the instigator. You guys crack me up.

Went to Fino's for a late breakfast this morning. I got the hungryman's breakfast (3 eggs 2 bacon 2 sausage and a slice of ham, with hash browns and rye toast.), and my mom had sausage gravy and biscuits.

Dinner is meatloaf, with mashed potatoes and corn.

There have been more than a few instigators on here over the years Fluffy Bunnies...

some subtle...  some not so subtle  :-X :-X :-X

Very true BRD.

We went to Shorty's on Monroe Street.  I had never been there before.  It was very good.  I had the house steak, the daughter had a kabob and the husband had pulled pork.

must be either "do as I say and

not as I do"...

or it's easier to see faults in others than in ones self...

or...   well, never mind...   

I promised someone I'd try to behave tonight 8* 8* 8*

along with our turkey burgers we had oriental sweet potatoes and a dolled up spinach leaf salad...

blueberries, blackberries, strawberries all went in the salad...

and for dessert I'm having a 22 oz Bud Light I found in the back of the refrigerator ;) ;) ;)

I made some lemonade/freestone peach frosties for dessert.

I took 1 can of frozen lemonade (spartan brand, it's cheaper and tastes better than minute maid)

and 1 can of raggety ripe freestone peaches. (MUCH tastier than cling peaches)

I divided it into 1/3's and blended each 1/3 with 2 cups of ice and 1/2 cup or so of water and blended it.

Then poured into cups and frozen for about 2 hours.

If you stir them at this point they are very thick, and you can drink it then, or if you are strong willed, you can wait over night and have your own "italian ice" the next day.

Delish.

I had dinner with a friend that lives in Tarpon Springs... we ate at a Greek Restaurant where we sat outside near the sponge docks... Enjoying the gulf breeze and a bottle of vino...

We split Saganaki and some Sadniki with some Pite bread, some feta cheese and olives... I had Broiled Octopuss, which they did a very good job.. (it was tender) and my friend had some shrimp broiled in olive oil, spices.. served on some fresh pasta...   

Then we went to one of the pastry shops and got some Baklava and struedal... then walked around all the shops...

It was a good night...

and no.. I did not have any of J's BBQ sauce to put on my Octopus....  8) 8) 8)

That sounds great. I've had octopus a few times, but both times it was pretty chewy, especially the smoked octopus.

Octopus is excellent if it's prepared properly.  It's just really hard to find a place that can do that.  Tampa is very lucky she has one.

I will be in Tampa next week. Can you recommend some good restaurants?

Went to Mac's in Saline tonight, after watching my daughter in her choir concert.  I had Ruby Red Trout, smothered in asparagus and morel mushrooms and rice pilaf, with seafood gumbo for an appetizer.  The salad (with craisins and feta cheese) was awesome, with their house dressing...  it was a dijon/horseradish vinaigrette that was out of this world!

Ugh!

Expensive, but worth it!   ;D

My taste buds are very happy right now!
