Tomorrow ladydog, Matt and I are going to Red Lobster for lunch - pre Christmas. I have been receiving emails about free delivery before Christmas. Discovered today that that was a US promotion. I wasn't best pleased. Why am I getting such emails?
Went down to exercise class after lunch. We now have a new member, a male. Bit surprising as he is young compared to us oldies who are normally there. Friday will be the last class before Christmas. Resuming again on the 30th apparently. However, we are bowling on both the 23rd and the 30th so won't be there. In fact the 23rd is our bowling banquet.
In the afternoon a friend turned up with a two way switch box and after a certain amount of effort, we can now watch both DVDs and VHS tapes. He wouldn't take a penny for the gadget. Just said Merry Christmas. Considering Best Buy Geek Squad wanted to charge me $99.99 I was very grateful.
Here's another simple and delicious looking recipe from Kevin Lynch and Closet Cooking.
Balsamic Soy Roasted Garlic Mushrooms
Simple and tasty mushrooms roasted in a balsamic-soy and garlic sauce!
2 lbs mushrooms

3 Tbs balsamic vinegar
2 Tbs soy sauce (or tamari)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp thyme, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1. Toss the mushrooms in the oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, arrange in a single layer on a baking pan and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until the mushrooms are tender, about 20 minutes, mixing half way through.
Have a great day
