Tuna Taco Report

Today we took the motor home to Rockport to have the air conditioner checked. The heat pump wasn't working much, kept popping the breaker. Which was interesting when it was 95 on Saturday, but it was a dry day and it always cools off at night, and you can always count on the wind to blow. So it isn't as bad as it could be, and they are having a part expressed in and we will get it fixed on Tuesday. Major shop at Walmart and HEB. Stocking up on my fav HEB products for the summer.

Then we had lunch at the Spaghetti Works. Finally, they had amber jack fish, which was delish. Paul had their spaghetti, very garlicky and a 1/2 pound meat ball. He raved about the pasta, probably because it wasn't healthy whole wheat. Sigh. The health punishment.

As soon as we got home Roma called and came over with the best carrot cake I have even eaten. It was very dark, like whole wheat, but tasted exquisite. No whole wheat, no brown sugar and no molassas. It is her great grandmother's recipe. Scratch, even grates the carrots herself. I am hoping she will give me the recipe. She says it is easy.

And then we had some happy hour at Rex and Nellie's. Rick and Shirlene are leaving tomorrow morning and invited us all to go out to eat with them. There were 20 of us, and we went to Kody's. Paul had the chicken taco, and we split fried asparagus. Very, very delicious. I had a crab stuffed jalapeno. Yummmmmy. I also had a tuna taco. No, not from the can, fresh grilled tuna, rare. I am trying new foods. It was good. Odd to see red tuna. It had leaf lettuce, tomatoes and aloei sauce on it.

Then a lot of the men went to Burney's to play Texas Hold 'Em at 7 p.m. I was going to sit outside with Mavis and talk, went over there, hollered, she wasn't anywhere. It was cold with 30 mile per hour winds. Enough of that. She leaves Wed. Everyone is going!

Spell check isn't working, guess I will just post this.
