Happy Stomach

Two great suppers:

Last night I had a supper meeting at the university (eat while listening to presentations), and the food (thanks to university food services) was delicious: a Caesar salad and savory dinner roll to start followed by pork loin with a mushroom gravy, roasted new potatoes, and steamed green and yellow beans--and a chocolate dessert with several layers of cake, custard, whipped cream, and frosting.

Tonight our family tried out the new Mexican restaurant in town: Don Pedro's.  We tried one another's meals, and I did not taste anything that wasn't delicious.  The requisite nacho chips that came with the menus were served with a warm bean dip and a chunky, spicy salsa.  A couple of the ladies got seafood-stuffed items, and the seafood included scallops, prawns, and red snapper (not just the faux crab ["krab"] often used for seafood chimichangas, etc., at many restaurants).  I had a variety platter that included a chalupa, a chimichanga, and a huge chile relleno, all of which were great.  We'll be back.
