[*subtitles* Mussels and Clams, no Chicken]

The great news is that I set out a plan for Nimble & Poised, followed it, and got so much done today. Super grateful for this.

The good news is that I changed out of my indoors clothes and into my outside clothes.

The not-so-good news is that I still haven't visited Than Tan so I don't have the things I need for Nasi Ayam Penyet. I hope this isn't going to be my lamingtons.

I'm also writing this while buzzed thanks to the aperitif at Kipling - which was good?? We were there at 8 pm, which is late for an aperitif on a Friday night in Italy cause they start getting ready for their dinner service.

But the waitstaff was so nice and he got us a quiet table somewhere - he actually gave us a choice between two - and of course, I made the quick decision to sit us next to a wall. Brava.

When the waiter arrived the second time, Francie got the Piedmontese plate instead of the seafood plate after he heard me say "oh no, got salmon!" He loves salmon. Dining-out-panic is a real thing.

Later at dinner, the waiter brought out my spaghetti with mussels and clams in a cast iron pan and a bowl for the emptied shells. Got tomato sauce splatters on my shirt removing the shells and no complaints.

Okay, so tomorrow, I'm going to get the ingredients to fry the ayam (chicken) for the ayam penyet.

Please pray for me. Tyvm.

I hope you learned and laughed and had a good one out there!
