Western PA is overcast and warm, a typical early spring "I don't know what kind of a day I want to be" day. I am stuck at home, you know, but my kids asked if I wanted to go to dinner on Sunday, and I think I will try. I have always been a homebody, but all day every day is a bit much. There is a great Japanese restaurant just a few miles away. The atmosphere is nice- the little bridge over a stream of koi, screens, bamboo, and hibachi. I'm sure it's designed to look the way an American expects a Japanese restaurant to look, probably not authentic, but that doesn't matter. They make the most delicious steaks and surf and turf. The mixed drinks are fruity, and have the little umbrellas of course, and the stir fried vegetables and mushrooms are worth walking a mile to try. I would give $100 for the recipe for the sauce they serve for the rice, and there is a sundae called a Rising Sun which is just French vanilla ice cream with plum brandy on top. At any rate, in my recovery, I have been eating Meals on Wheels, so you can imagine the anticipation! Oh, yum! I wish you could all come. I normally drink iced tea, but this Sunday I will have a pink umbrella in my "tea." Oh, I hope nothing happens to spoil this Mother's Day!!
