Manic Sunday

Sigh! Looks like operator error again. Did not hit the publish button.

Coffee and “donuts” while waiting for the laundry at the laundromat.

“Donuts”

Saved several for today.

Besides the normal bananas, papayas, and the occasional avocado from the farmers market, picked up a couple of packages of nuts.

Furikake and Wasabi Almonds

New vendor at the market. Nuts for “favors” for yesterday’s lunch, and one for The Cat to try.

Lunch with former co-workers (most of them retired).

We’ve known each other for at least three decades!

It was a toss up between the applewood salmon salad and the fennel seared ahi salad. The server recommended the ahi.

Baby green beans, fingerling potatoes, orange, frisee, red wine vinaigrette, nicoise olive aioli. Nicely composed and very tasty.

Dessert was simple.

With recipe! Not that I’m planning to bake anytime soon. Ate one and took the rest home for today (my all hallows treat). Hee hee.

Happy Halloween!

Enjoy. Eat well.

You know we had to go back.

More like a bagel/sandwich shop/deli combo.

The Cat ordered a hummus bagel.

Shared a “Chinese” chicken salad with mandarin orange and won ton strips.

The bagel was good, the slider wasn’t bad, the salad was okay. The dressing was good though. Just the amount charged for the salad was a little higher than what the dish delivered. The bagel and slider prices were more reasonable.

The Cat wants to come back to try more stuff. She liked the coffee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Tuna Thursday

Started nondescript enough.

Sandwich on the run, from Watanabe Bakery.

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

The tuna sandwich is a tuna sandwich. Okay. The potato salad sandwich, a long-time “favorite” novelty.

Dinner was a combination of cleaning out the refrig and a continuation of the tuna theme.

A quick sauté of each, a tin of tuna, some olives, and capers.

Much better than the sandwich. But one was on the run, and one was “created”.🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Recap

Not too much happened.

Normal visit to farmers market for apple bananas.

Picked up a dragon fruit (first time).

Vendor said it was ripe, sliced it up for dinner. Not bad, very mild flavor.

Brunch/lunch at Zia’s.

Express Lunch(es)

Express Lunch(es)

The Cat had soup (tomato bisque) and salad, The Mouse ordered salad and pasta (spaghetti marinara).

The spaghetti reminded me of small-kid-time cafeteria spaghetti (in a good way), plain and simple.

The Cat couldn’t finish her salad. Took it home and added it to her dinner soup.

Vegetable Soup with Mochi Rice Cake

Vegetable Soup with Mochi Rice Cake

A new definition of “soup and salad”. Hee hee.

Nom. I think they forgot the guava BBQ sauce. Didn’t need it, but would’ve been nice to try it. Sigh.

Yes, would order again.

Happy Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.
