Thursday Thoughts

I rarely post photos in Thursday Thoughts posts but I wrote about Downey's House last fall, so I decided to just post the photos from our dinner there a couple weeks ago. SP had seafood chowder and salmon with cole slaw. I had Philly Chicken with cole slaw. As always, we shared the fried zucchini. We always get the zucchini - it's so good!
This past weekend we went to Hofbrauhaus. I was going to be good and just have my meal, no snacks, but of course SP really wanted the pretzel with extra beer cheese. It is awfully tasty. So we got it. We brought some home for snacking on Sunday.

What We're Eating:

  • Chicken Tacos with avocado, tomatoes, cheddar
  • Mixed Greens Salad with Shrimp & Hard-Boiled Egg
  • Dessert: Cast-Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookies

What We're Watching:

  • Parasite, a Korean movie. Really good. It's nominated for Best Picture at this year's Oscars and I'm rooting for it. I've seen five of the nine nominated films and in my uninformed, untrained movie critic eyes, Parasite is the best of those five. 
  • We've made it through 4 episodes of His Dark Materials. It's better than when we started but I'm still having a hard time keeping things straight and I'm constantly asking SP questions. It got much better when the show got to the polar bear, easily my favorite character thus far. Can't wait to (hopefully) see him rip apart the bad guys.
  • We watched the Super Bowl. Well, more like the game was on while we ate dinner, folded laundry, cleaned up, read books, played games on our phones, etc. As usual, we paid more attention to the commercials. Darn that Google commercial for making me all teary. 

What I'm Reading:

  • Magazines. Of course.
  • I'm in the middle of Some Danger Involved by Will Thomas. It's the first of the Barker & Llewellyn series. I started with the 11th back in December and now I'm going to read from the beginning.
