Today was another day spent getting ready to get on the road on Friday. After coffee and breakfast (leftover mashed taters from last night, sausage links, and a fried egg on top) we headed off to Costco to stock up on meat. We got a package of 12 chicken breasts which we split up for the freezer; a double pork tenderloin which went into 8 pieces for later use; and 5 New York Strips which also went into the freezer. We got a piece of Ahi Tuna for dinner on Friday…it will be covered with cracked pepper and seared about 30 seconds on a side then sliced thin and served with wasabi, soy sauce, and rice. We also got some more chocolate raisins and Hershey’s Nuggets for Neil so he can continue his chocolate fix as well as a couple bottles of Argentinian Malbec wine.
Coming home Neil checked the air pressure in all of our tires and pumped up the ones that were low, went on a bike ride, changed out a couple of burned out light bulbs in our floor night lighting while Connie worked on some of the last details of scheduling her current class of phlebotomists and prepared for her online video presentation to them this evening.
About 1600 Neil got up and made dinner…sliced up a couple of Italian sausages he had defrosted, added some onions, garlic, tomato paste and a bit of red wine (he opened one of the bottles of Malbec, yum) and some Italian spices. Served it up with some linguini, grated Parmesan Reggiano and some more Malbec…quite a good dinner and we even have some left over for lunch tomorrow.
Neil’s heading off in a bit for computer club here at the park…he got rope into leading it which essentially means he helps people solve their computer issues. After that…we’ll watch some TV until time for bed. Tomorrow is a grocery run and then Taco night at the Elks…you can’t complain about two huge taco salad bowls and a pitcher of beer for about 10 bucks…then we’re up Friday to break camp and head off for Sun N Fun park in Sarasota.
Another nice bird picture from one of our recent walkabout at Corkscrew, a male cardinal.
