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.

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

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.

Odds and Offs

Week’s end. Cleaning out the food. Came across a can of chicken “spread”, thought about making chicken salad, the “spread” part didn’t register in my brain until I opened the tin.

Makings of a chicken salad?

Makings of a chicken salad?

Texture like butter (but softer), lard maybe, general eww. No other alternative (didn’t want to just chuck it), being pake and all.

Mixed the spread with chopped celery and Napa cabbage. Had an artificial, weird taste and aftertaste. Added black pepper, rice vinegar and apple cider vinegar. Figured the vinegar could at least mask any weirdness.

Chicken Salad?

While not pretty, and certainly not desirable, it was at least palatable (think weird local style macaroni salad gone awry). Not doing this again. Eww eww.:)

Better luck next time.

Not all canned meat is SPAM. Lesson learned.

Luckily The Cat brought home her leftover salad from CPK.

Quinoa + Arugula Salad

Quinoa + Arugula Salad

Super-grain salad with asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, toasted pine nuts and Feta tossed in our housemade Champagne vinaigrette.

Could’ve used a bit more vinaigrette, but I’m not complaining.

The adventure continues.

Eat well.

Taco (Salad) Tuesday

La Comida.

Pre- and Post- Mixed

Pre- and Post- Mixed

Of course choose the pork option. Generous portion. Chips on the bottom, gets soggy, the way I like it.

Along with the normal pico de gallo (house-made), which is good, chef included a sample of his hot condiments.

Opened the container, took a whiff, wimped out, and passed the whole thing to my cubicle neighbor (who loves spicy).

Currently, best taco salad in the area.

Enjoy. Eat well.
