Holiday Monday, sweet 'n sour

Or maybe, sour 'n sweet. Who determined the order of that pairing anyway? Do you suppose it's just a sound thing -- along the lines of Hardy & Laurel?

And though it probably has something to do with the fact that it's a long holiday weekend (Victoria Day), supplies in the kitchen seem to be dwindling. No matter how I searched (or asked) today, I couldn't come up with an apple. Still, there are plenty of other fruits available, so I guess I should shut up and stop being so picky.

As always, our faithful staff came up with a tidy meal for us tonight. A nicely herbed broccoli and cauliflower casserole, plus steamed rice and a pan of nice big meatballs -- complete with the aforementioned sweet 'n sour sauce. As usual, I arranged my salad on the side.

You'll see that I embellished my meal by adding salad bar bits (peppers and carrots) to the main course. I also dug out the old hot sauce and drizzled that over top.

Thankfully, the food is wonderful here. Still, that touch of spice tonight made me lonesome for home.
