It's connected and wow what a picture! We tried a 4K movie right away and it was great. We watched The Matrix.
The night of bad luck: So....days later we are all set to watch Gemini Man which we rented from Redbox. He makes a reservation for pick up and that always works. Nope, couldn't find his reservation so he had to call Redbox. Fortunately they had a copy and we rented one and weren't charged twice.
We go pick up a pizza from a local place that is usually fantastic. Local joint and we like supporting local businesses. We get home and the pizza is burnt on the crust. It's barely edible. Oh well, we will "suffer through it" as we live pretty far from the restaurant and aren't going to head back out.
Pop in the movie and it wouldn't play, the DVD player wouldn't pop up a menu and clearly we had a bad player. Arrggh! It would play a 4K movie but not a DVD or Blueray. Ok, adapting again we put in a brand new copy of Passengers (in 4K as it's the only thing the player will read). The movie has gaps in the audio! Every few words would blank out!
Bottom line is we watched a different movie and had to send the DVD player and that copy of Passengers back to Amazon. What a night! For what it's worth the restaurant gave us a $25 gift card for the inconvenience. Just one of those evenings where everything went wrong.
Enough of that story - Let's take dinner plans!
I have a new addiction. Carole's Panko mushrooms. We had these again as an appetizer and yes, I made more than I thought we'd want. And we ate them :-)
Our main dish was an easy roasted chicken meal with halved cherry tomatoes, onions, olive oil, basil and oregano.
Next time I am popping some whole garlic cloves in there. Roasted garlic is fabulous smeared on fresh bread.
The chicken dinner lasted for two nights and as this left two smaller chicken thighs, I decided to make the most of it and create a chicken salad. Very little mayo but lots of the flavors of the olive oil, roasted tomatoes and onions. Sliced tomato and lettuce made it a hearty enough lunch. Highly recommended.
