Erin, Lunch, Rice Salad, Beef & Broccoli Salad
Spent the day at Lisa's folks' place, a delightful little 19th century house called Erin. We were expecting a larger group of people but Lisa'a brother and his family couldn't make it due to stomach illness. That left Lisa and I with her folks, to birdwatch on the back porch with a nice cross breeze and enjoy a lot of salady food for lunch....and cake! A kind of belated celebration of Lisa's birthday. It was great to get out of town to chill in the country, despite all the assholery of those Tea Party signs on the way there. One remedy: don't even bother reading the illogical catchphrase, just flick the sign the bird as you drive by, very helpful!
