Trivia Chat

I'm so proud of April.  She has been working so hard to become healthy.  April now does any where from a four mile to a nine mile walk plus her workouts. She has dropped a number of dress sizes while she has gained energy and stamina.  Not only is this young lady growing stronger physically, but spiritually and mentally she is headed toward super woman. The other day I decided it was time to take April out for a treat.   Lunch at Pei Wei's and clothes shopping at Macy's.    The total thrill was when she put on a size 14 pair of jeans.   Congratulations, April, you deserve the very best that God has for you in life.   You go girl!

I've been noticing that so much of life is about food.  I think it is kind of sad that I live this way.  We are to eat to live and not live to eat.  But after a hard day at work, I return home and Ken will tend to say.  Where you want to go to eat.  Home food is healthier of course and we do tons of salads and soups at home.  Yet, with only the two of us to feed, we do tend to eat out more than necessary.   So each place we go, we tend to order one favorite item that we like for  that particular restaurant.     Kilkenny's is an Irish Pub that we don't frequent too often.  It is down on historic Cherry Street.  And since it is the St Patricks Day season, we paid it a visit.  Our usual at Kilkenny's is fish and chips -- or for me the chips and slaw.  This time we added a cup of chowder.  Mine was Lobster Corn and Ken's was Clam.   Sooo good!  Probably good we don't go there often.
Next, I'll have to confess our latest after church on Saturday night favorite.  (We don't always go out after church Saturday evenings.  I don't particularly enjoy having to wait for a table at night.)  When I work up until church time on Saturdays, we like to visit Fish Daddy's.  Our favorite item on their Menu is the Craw fish Cobb Salad with Remoulade dressing.  Everything about it is wonderful.  I have had them blacken the crawfish hoping to cut down on the calories.  The last few times, I have forgotten all about that request.  I've been looking on the Internet for the remoulade recipe.  Still have not found it. 
I found the Remoulade Dressing Recipe:

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (to taste)
1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped (or green onion tops)
1 tablespoon red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon capers
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)
3 tablespoons lime juice
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)

And finally, the most momentous and miraculous trivia chat subject of the day is the birth of my first born son fifty years ago today.  Kevin entered this world as a 2 pound 3 ounce infant.  Doctors gave us little hope for his survival.  But faith in God, our love for our son and his fighting spirit conquered the odds.   We visited him daily only allowed to peer in at him through glass.  We were not allowed to touch him for the first month.  (Today, doctors have learned this is not good.)  Kevin Scott Scrivner, you are a miracle, a mystery and a winner.  Happy Fiftieth Birthday, Son!  What is they say .... my, how you have grown!
