So for our second attempt at social distancing Friday celebrating, we arranged to have curbside pick up of dinner from Panera Bread in Burlington. My mother gave me a gift card for them for my birthday so I thought we would use it to treat ourselves but also support the local employees of this business.
So we took the hot rod and drove to Burlington. I did sweatpants again this time. Here is the price of gas in Burlington.
Panera Bread is right next to Costco. There was a line of at least 2 blocks when we arrived.
I got French Onion Soup and Tom got a pulled chicken sandwich and mac n cheese. Here is my dinner, which was tasty.
I also made a Fish House Punch from the Downton Abbey Cocktail Book. This was the oldest cocktail recipe I have used as it is from 1732 from the Fish House Club where George Washington was a member. It has rum, regular and peach brandy, lime and lemon juices, simple syrup and a large ice block. I made 1/2 recipe and it still filled my punch bowl.
The plan was to have movie night. Tom picked the first movie which was 1917. This was an intense movie.
Then I made popcorn,
and we watched Little Women, the movie I picked.
There was a warning on the recipe to sip the punch slowly and let the ice dilute the punch. Apparently I did not sip slowly enough, and I ended up getting sick. So a mostly enjoyable Friday evening except the end, which was my own fault. So I will need to modify my plans for our next Friday night. Lesson learned.
Price of gas is same is currently the same in NC.
1917 and Little Women, two very different but excellent movies.
Odd to see gas that low here.
