Kitchen-less for a couple of days.

I am, not before time, having the lighting in my kitchen replaced, and greatly improved. 

It's been so poor that I couldn't see the end of my nose.

Therefore my kitchen has been out of use all day.  

I had a hearty breakfast, skipped lunch, and invited myself to dinner with my friends Donna and Jack Chrisman, and their daughter Ashley Lloyd.

It was a very fine dinner prepared by Ashley: a salad with baby spinach and heirloom tomatoes, and some wonderful pork loin with pasta and delicious sauce.

Shall I say d e l i c i o u s,   better than anything I could/would cook.

The kitchen work is three quarters done and will be finished by Wednesday evening.

This is good -  I have worked in an ill-lighted kitchen for many years - all too long.

This is bad -  I'll have to find new excuses to savour and enjoy Ashley's cooking!

P.S.  Did I tell you that dessert was home-made Baklava, purchased at the Sarasota/Manatee GLENDI festival  at St. Barbara's Greek Orthodox Church?
