No Kissin' Now For Me
Wish I Was Back On The Bayou
So we decided to get some seafood. Elizabeth has seen my pictures of Pasadena Fish Market a few times and thought it looked great, but I'd never taken her with me. So we went. We started with a couple of cold cans of Arizona Iced Teas.
Elizabeth ordered the "shrimps" and I ordered the "fish & shrimps," selecting catfish strips as my fish. Both of us chose fries and cole slaw as our sides. The food was ready in less than 15 minutes and it was the same large portions of delicious food that I always receive here.
What The Doctor Ordered
And, let me say preemptively before I am asked: yes, you can read about the nail polish right here. (By the way, it's the one year anniversary of my favorite lil' blogger's blog.)
Our 30-Minute Boneless Wings
Ten minutes later the manager came out. "She only put in five wings by mistake," he said. "Sorry. I will give you those five but we're making you a fresh order of ten."
"Okay," I said.
Ten minutes later he presented me with the box and we took it to the car to eat. I opened it. They were bone-in wings. I went back inside. "These have bones," I said. "I ordered boneless."
"Sorry," he said. "Another ten minutes."
So ten minutes after that - 30 minutes after I had first ordered the boneless wings - we received them. They were correct this time, and they have given us some extra.
(The manager told me I could have those bone-in wings, which neither of us wanted, so I gave them to two ladies who were sitting inside Church's, and they were THRILLED to have them. Neither of them had ever tried the jalapeno-lime flavor before, and they loved them and thanked me repeatedly.)
The boneless wings were delicious, as they always are at Church's. Not really worth a 30-minute wait for an afternoon snack, but still very tasty.
Cheese, Pizza, Beer & A View
When we showed up we found a special treat: our friend Carla was there with several cheeses, including Humboldt Fog, which she knows is one of my favorite.
"You can cook frozen pizzas on the grill?" I asked Dave.
"Yes," he said, "but you have to watch them carefully."
We decided to have some wine with dinner so Dave opened a Bogle Petite Syrah. I wasn't crazy about it with the first sip; it was very sweet. But it mellowed out with just a few minutes.
Turkey @ The Wolfe
Wolfe Burgers, however, has always had a good turkey burger, so for lunch on Sunday I went there to sit on the patio and enjoy the warm weather. As always, I was able to customize my burger from the condiment bar: this time I added onions, chili pepper strips, pickles, Thousand Island dressing, and A.1. sauce. It was a delicious, juicy burger, probably second only to Fatburger as my favorite turkey burger in town.

Sunday Evenin' Comin' Down
Last night I took that nothing-too-fancy concept to the extreme: I rummaged through the fridge, coming up with the last slice of turkey, some pickles, and American and cheddar cheese. I put them all on an English muffin, heated it on the panini press for a few minutes, and relaxed in front of the TV.
And it was fantatstic.
