Rachel arrives at noon tomorrow and things are just about in order here. Susan made a quick trip to Dorita’s and picked up a couple of croissants and breakfast is now a memory. We have ordered a barbequed chicken from. Nacho, and that will be the centerpiece of our lunch. There is no grand plan for today, but one never knows.
I tried to make a lunch reservation at A Nou yesterday, but they were totally booked. I sort of knew that even before I asked because there was one long center table that occupied two thirds of the dining area. That being the case, I made a reservation at Salatën for 2:00 and ten minutes before I made my way down the stairs and hobbled over to the restaurant. They gave us the window table and we looked at both the menu of the day and the regular menu.
We decided to order from the regular menu and chose a tomato salad topped with tuna, cod fritters, chicken cannelloni and huevos rotos. Huevos rotos consists of two fried eggs and a generous portion of French fries. We also ordered a bottle of Mala Vida a very tasty local red wine. For dessert we split a dish of fresh bananas and strawberries topped with vanilla ice cream and a dab of chocolate sauce. We finished the meal with a coffee. Everything we ordered was well presented and very tasty.
On the way back home, we stopped off at La Fórcola and said hello to Juan and Melissa whom we did not see the other day. We then made our way home and when we walked through the door it was a little after 4:30. The rest of the day was uneventful and we spent it either in front of the computer or in front of the TV. I was in bed at 11:30 and Susan called it a day a little after midnight.
