Wendy's fish sandwich was not part of last year's Fast Food AdLentures, but I will tell you right now it's better than any of the sandwiches I tried then. The fish is crispy and hot. The fillet has no dark or tough spots in it; it's all tasty white fish.
Now let's back up to the start of the weekend.
I sent a text to our friend Tim to see if he was around, but he was busy. He offered up some of his wine: "I'll leave a garage key, help yourself."
Part of me felt bad drinking Tim's wine without him.
But a larger part of me did not.
I wandered over a took two bottles from the scores in his garage.
A couple hours later on my patio, enjoying the late afternoon light, listening to live Dylan recordings on YouTube, I sent Tim a text:
"The '70 Mouton-Rothschild is great... thanks!"
He replied a minute later: "That's good to hear. When I refilled the bottle with Thunderbird I thought it would be obvious."
I also made a snack for myself and Elizabeth: Trader Joe's caramelized onion and feta cheese pastry bites with some sauteed spinach.
Saturday afternoon, Elizabeth and I sat on our patio and had some wine. But then it started drizzling. So we headed over to Tim's place.
I put out a collection of cheeses, all from Trader Joe's.
They were a delicious treat, made better with some spicy Pico Pica hot sauce.
The sandwiches were great, the slightly spicy meatballs mixing nicely with the melted cheese and the barely-toasted rolls.
It was a nice dessert to end the weekend.
