    OK, I will try to compete with Kevin..

    Today's menu was spaghetti, with the extra large spaghetti noodles sauteed in a great vintage California water, for about 11 minutes. In the saute sauce (water) was a few pinches of California sea salt, with a drizzle of Italian olive oil, the extra virgin type.

    The spaghetti sauce was imported from the country of Ragu, and delicately warmed in a saucepan with a few cloves of California Gilroy garlic. Once the dish was warmed in the pan with original Southern California Natural Gas, the noodles and the sauce were blended together with quite a bit of delicacy, using American made utensils.

    Not to be outdone, we unwrapped 4 large pieces of Texas toast, and warmed them to perfection with California Natural Gas.

    As if this meal wasn't already over the top, we applied California lettuce, again sauteed with cold California water. Once they were pat dried, they were hand torn and placed into an American made stainless steel bowl, which had previously been chilled to a cool 20 degrees. Once the lettuce was applied gingerly, we added California strawberries, thinly sliced, a few imported Roma tomatoes were added after slicing into 1/2" wedges, akin to how it would be served in a fine Italian restaurant. We then drizzled a fine Imported Balsamic vinegar on top of this salad, then a fine mist/drizzle with a nice Imported Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

    This fine meal was served out on the veranda (back patio) and was consumed with a fine 14 Hands Pinot Grigio white wine, from the year 2017.

    Attending this gala meal was my girlfriend, her daughter, her granddaughter, and my daughter. Off to my left side was my trusty companion, my 13 pound dog Tessie.

    Two pieces of thinly (about .5" ) steak, dont know what kind. Think I had done that to a serloin a while back to make beef stir fry of some kind. Will sear on the grill (out medium). Saute some Mushrooms, onion, and green pepper in butter and fresh crushed garlic cloves. A salad with leaf lettuce from the garden, mixed with green onion and green peppers (frozen last year). Baked tater with lots of butter. I cleaned out a cooler that had a 24 oz. can of Miller lite (in the aluminum bottle) still in it from camping last summer. Will have that also.
