T Stands for a forgotten T date

I've been doing a bit of organizing, and that includes taking photos off my camera's SD card.  Imagine my dismay and surprise when I found a bunch of photos I took this summer when I used one I took that day for Rinda's Photography Challenge.  I was SURE I had shown these photos before, but an extensive search brought up nothing.

This may look like, or remind you of, the same day that Kathy and I spent when we went to Public at The Brickyard, but I assure you, this is the heat (real heat) of summer and this is my friend Sally walking ahead of me.

The entrance was a bit different, and some of the tables had been rearranged,

but the decorations were basically the same.
Instead of a menu encased in a hard cover, this one was merely laminated.  You probably can't read the menu in the mosaic

but both Sally and I got the Caprese, which was composed of fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil pesto on ciabatta.  I loved mine, but Sally was put off by the basil pesto, which I admit, was a bit strong.  And even though it looks like there is meat in that sandwich, it was a true vegetarian's delight.  Of course, I traded that nasty ketchup for ranch dressing.  OK, any ketchup is nasty in my books, not just the flavored herb infused stuff they served at the Brickyard.

Of course, we both had water, and the sweet potato fries for our side.  Our meals were $8.00 each before tax.  Much cheaper than the day I took Kathy to Public at The Brickyard.

So what are you doing for T this week?  Are you showing a mosaic, digital, hybrid, or physical scrapbook, journal, or altered book page?  Were you out and about?   Were you somewhere you'd never been before, or an old familiar haunt?  Did you prefer to stay in, and share your drink, a mug, a cup, or even a tea pot?  It doesn't matter, as long as you can relate it back to some drink, or something that will hold liquid.

But, of course, you must link below for other T participants and friends to visit.  And Bleubeard reminds you that those photos can be taken at any time, even last summer!!

I forgot to mention that I have unexpected company, so if you haven't heard from me, that's the reason. I'll be by to check my T group and everyone I need to catch up with as soon as possible.

Looks like the weather was kind and your lunch sounds very tasty Elizabeth. I'm not a fan of ketchup either and although I am a carnivore, if I find a good vegetarian dish I always opt for that instead, so I'm sure I would have enjoyed a caprise too :D
I'm delighted to be joining in this week after receiving a lovely gift from my friend Lynn. Happy T Day :o))

Sounds like a good day out, glad you found the photos to share for us.
Not sure about the Craft Barn challenge yet, not really into the calendar one for sure, I may well do the alternate offerings depending on what they are!
