Oh my! I think this has been the longest week ever.   And in talking with friends, colleagues and acquaintances, both local and virtual, it seems to have been that way for a lot of people. 

So, I need something light today.

When's the last time you ate out? Where and what did you have?

Have you started your grilling season yet?

Is your farmer's market open yet?

And of course, what are you wearing today?

When's the last time you ate out? Where and what did you have? -- My friend Suzanne and I went to a local bar/grill Wed for lunch.  I had the California Club sandwich and steamed veggies. She had the Okie Monster - a big frito chili pie with all the trimmings. It looked delish and I was kinda jealous. Dh and I have our weekly lunch date today and are going to a local Asian fusion place.

Have you started your grilling season yet? -- Oh yeah. Grill's been fired up multiple times already.  And we're stocked with charcoal for the summer - Lowe's had 2 20lb bags on sale for $13 last week, so we bought 3 packages .. and we already had a 20lb bag in the shed.  I think 140 lbs of charcoal will last us a while!

Is your farmer's market open yet? - Ours runs year round, but moves indoors and has mostly "products" instead of "produce" in the winter. The outdoor market opened last weekend but I didn't get a chance to go. I will hit it for the first time tomorrow.

And of course, what are you wearing today?  -- jeans, flowery wedge sandals, a red/black/white v-neck shirt over a red cami.

1.  Tuesday night, with PNJ and our resident librarian.  We went to La Tamate near DuPont Circle in DC, and I had linquine with a marinara sauce, with calimari, mussels, clams (in the shell) and shrimp.  All the seafood was cooked PERFECTLY. and SOOOOOO good.  We really need to go back there again.

2. We could, but I still haven't bought a grill after moving.  There's a nice hybrid grill at the Home Despot that I will likely get at some point this summer.  It takes either gas or charcoal.

3.  Not yet.  It opens the first or second weekend in June this year--later than usual because of our endless winter this year, I expect.

4. Jean, pink polo shirt and pink canvas Mary Janes.

The last time I ate out was almost two weeks ago (going to remedy that tonight!) due to a very busy couple of weeks, evening meetings, DH's long business trip, and general tiredness. Had grilled lamb on mashed plantains. It sounds better than it actually was.We're giving up on that restaurant.

We had a warm day last week and I grilled some burgers.

Our farmer's market doesn't open until the end of May, probably because this sucky winter lasted so long nothing is actually growing yet.

I am wearing faded skinny jeans that I need to replace, a navy t-shirt and white cotton sweater with a mango stain from last night's dinner (black bean burgers and mango). Just so you don't think I'm a total slob, I feel it necessary to report that I looked awesome last night at my son's spring concert, good hair day and all.

The last time I ate out was with a group of friends from work, a couple of months ago. We went to a local Italian place, I had tortellini and a salad.

Grilling, yes!  We have grilled several times... actually, we grill year round.  :-)

Farmers market opens in May. Not sure how it is going to work this year.. we'll see.

I am still in my work out clothes.

Last Friday, we went to Fire and Ice. It's a place where you pick out you food combos, and take them to be grilled. We had a little bit of everything, pasta, rice, salmon, chicken, beef, calimari, vegetables, and sauces. It was the first time we went and the teens loved it. I prefer to be waited on when dining out.

Have you started your grilling season yet?

Yes

Is your farmer's market open yet?

Not until end of May. The asparagus patch is cleaned and hopefully growing soon.

And of course, what are you wearing today?

Jeans, tee, light sweatshirt, sneakers, and I'm about to head to a walk on the beach.

Oops!  I just remembered that GAB and I ate at IHOP on Wednesday night, on the way home from buying his truck.  I have no recollection of the food (typical of me and IHOP) but I do remember drinking lots of coffee.  We were about an hour and a half from home and I had to drive his car back, so caffeination was the object of the game.
