Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mean(s).” Use it with or without the “s,” any way you’d like. – Linda G. Hill

My husband and I eat simple meals with fruit and vegetables plus eggs for brunch; and for dinner, have salmon instead of eggs. That means we eat basically the same thing every day.

Friday evening is our regular night out at a local steak house Cedar Creek. He orders the same thing every time – prime rib steak, 18 oz cooked medium well, French fries, green vegetables, house salad and horseradish for the steak. He makes it clear to the server that the horseradish must be fresh to a point it clears his sinuses. The same server waits on us for more than a year, so he knows exactly what my hubby wants. Sometimes the server is rotated to the patio section and we prefer to stay inside.

I may eat 2 oz of meat now and then. When eating at home, a large plate of plain broccoli stir-fried with olive oil, a bit of salt and pepper serves me well. It’s hard for me to find a large portion of vegetables in American restaurants. At this restaurant, I order the Brown Derby Cobb Salad with romaine lettuce, small cubes of turkey, tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese crumble, broiled eggs and avocado.

Family Time

We had a wonderful Christmas in Portland, Oregon. It was such a precious and fun time to be with our daughter and son-in-law.

In a five-day time, we went to Christmas Eve service, played board games or card games on three days, had home made waffle and veggie breakfast. For a dinner, we made pizza with personalized toppings, and chocolate chips cookies from scratch.

Then went to see Star Wars in a theater, and watched two movies at home; also went to see the Christmas lights on Peacock Lane.

On our daughter’s birthday, we had a wonderful dinner at her favorite restaurant. It was a relaxing, memorable family Christmas.

Birthday Blessings

Living to celebrate another birthday is not something taken for granted for me. This is an extended life of mine granted the grace to be a cancer survivor. My husband, daughter and son-in-law treated me with a day touring the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. Then took me to an enjoyable, romantic sunset dinner at Dana Point, California.
