OUR FIRST DINNER

Our first "homemade" dinner at the new apartment.  We've spent a week living out of the deli at the grocery downstairs but today 2nd Man bought some NY Strip steaks, we grilled them and made some onion rings...


Steak and onion rings?  
Perhaps a bit unorthodox (no potatoes!) but it sure was yummy!

And yes, once we get all settled in, there will be pics of the new digs.

  1. I love onion rings and those in your picture look great. When you have a chance would you mind sharing the recipe?

    1. I will, I think it's something he just pulled off the net a few years ago. I'll pin him down on the details.

  2. By the way, it would be great to have a grocery store with a great deli if you did not feel like cooking. Nice.

    1. Yes, our apartment has a wonderful grocery store at the ground floor. We even have our own entrance. Now it's obviously a bit pricier than most stores since it's got a more limited market being in the downtown area, so things like a 2 liter bottle of a soft drink is a lot more expesnive than in the store BUT the food they have, the fresh meat, homemade sides, etc are REALLY good and very reasonably priced.

    1. HI! Missed ya!! Yes, we sold the house in town and have put the dquity into savings for use at the farm. We have moved to an apartment in downtown, we downsized a lot of our stuff, and this is the last stop before the farm in a few more years. Now we will be able to spend the next few years making it much more livable.

      Come back and visit! We missed you!

    1. It's certainly a way to make us feel like we are home for sure. Yep grocery store is great (and it's got a wonderful upstairs full of herbs and spices and fun things like that).

    1. Sam, my mother in law lived in such a condo for over 20 years and my husband and I were talking about that is what we want in the future. She lived well and it was such easier and fun living. You can always have just one car as an option.
