December 1, 2013 Lunch – Dallas Museum of Art; Dinner – Enchilada Casserole, Christians and Moors, Guacamole, Baked Zucchini Pudding, and tamales
We went to the Dallas Museum of Art at 11:00 and saw lots of interesting art. Here are some of the ones I liked. At 1:00 we became hungry and since we had not had a good salad in several days and knew would be eating Mexican food for dinner we went to the Museum restaurant and ordered a select you own salad for $8.00 each. There were four kinds of greens. In addition, I selected beets, blue cheese, egg, red onion, artichoke hearts, and cooked garbanzo beans.
There were four different dressings. Suzette took honey mustard and I took Cesar salad dressing. In addition there was a tray with a bowl of croutons, and bowls of chopped pecans, pinon nuts and raisins and I took some of each of those also.
We enjoyed our salads and felt renewed and went back to see some more art, especially the European 19th and 20th Century stuff. Impressionism, Pointillism, Suprematism, Cubism, Fauvism and Pre-Raphaelite works. Nice but nothing to compare to the works from the Chicago Art Institute at the Kimball yesterday, except for about 10 Piet Mondrians that chronicled his entire career including pointillism and a few pointillist pieces that were knockout, especially one each by Signac and Pissarro.
We returned home by way of Walmart for a box and packed Suzette’s new chicken in cardboard and taped it shut.
Then a few minutes after 5:00 all the family arrived and around 5:30 we started eating all of the wonderful Mexican food Billy and Elaine had made. Billy made a Green chili Chicken enchilada casserole with Monterrey Jack Cheese, Guacamole with tomato, and Christians and Moors (black beans and rice cooked together with some sautéed onion and green bell pepper). Charlie brought a new beer and Modelo Especial and Billy had some Shiner Bock. Elaine made a grated zucchini casserole with egg and milk and lemon zest that went well with the meal also. Billy and Elaine also had bought some pork tamales from Luna’s that they heated by steaming them over boiling water.
After dinner we played games and Elaine made more chocolate and vanilla cookies and we sipped drinks.
Suzette and I talked to Rita some and enjoyed her company.
Finally around 8:45 all departed.
