What Are You Eating Right Now?

Consider this is the gastro equivalent of "What are you wearing?" laugh.gif

Right now I'm eating a late lunch: a bagel thinly spread with cream cheese and piled with cold smoked wild salmon, slivers of vidalia onion, and very thin slices of brandywine tomato, pausing every few seconds to lick the tomato juice running down my arms.

What are you eating?

Late lunch also, after picking up the kids at summer school-in our quest to find a good Chinese place close by, my son suggested we try Hunan East, at the south end of Rt. 1 (Sacramento Shopping Center), close to Ft. Belvoir. After being stuck in traffic, after a school bus crash!, we went down & ordered fried dumplings (my son's benchmark), Hunan Shrimp, & Cashew Chicken-after a decent wait (they warned us the fried dumplings would be at least 20 minutes), we carried everything home & dove in-this will definitely be a takeout place, fried rice was PLAIN-no veg, just the way the kids like it, nice large portions, hunan shrimp not as hot as China Garden (over near Kingstown library), but still good-we've been feeling kind of left out, as we haven't found too many good take-out places where we've moved (south end of Rt. 1, close to Ft. Belvoir-good location for BRAC, but not much in the way of restaurants, wish I had the cash to finance one)...Thistle

I'm eating a martini.

Yum.

I'm eating a couple of squares of dark chocolate (72%) and drinking wine. Just what I needed.

Reheated half of a two day old chicken chimichanga from The Well Dressed Burrito and a Dickel and Coke.

For the future, is there a minimum standard for these things?

Nope. Just curious. :P

Salad from the food bar across the street from my office. Romaine, carrots, mushrooms, green peas, red cabbage, scallions, blue cheese, cheddar, slivered almonds, and sunflower seeds. Lite Caesar dressing.

Very colorful.

Leftovers -- black bean, corn, and cranberry salad and tomatoes with balsamic vinegar. Oh, and a couple of mini milky ways.

A slightly underripe necartine from Reid's. ( I thought they were all at the perfect stage but clearly this one snuck in on me.) And it's too cold although it's been sitting in my totebag for 4 1/2 hours. :P

Hey, no more :wub: .

Me - :P

Sour Cream & Onion Pringles (1/3 Menos de Grasa que los Pringles Regulares) and Black Cherry Powerade Option from Rite Aid. Something is terribly wrong. I'm melting.

Pizza from CPK (I was at the mall to buy a baby gift and both kids wanted pizza :P ). Goat cheese, roasted red pepper & eggplant, and surprisingly good bacon. Just wish the sauce and crust weren't so sweet. With a San Pellegrino Aranciata.

Bile, raised by anger over the idiocy of co-workers (see above)

Goes well with a fifth of bourbon.

Seal Bay triple creme cheese that I just picked up from Cheesetique. I didn't see it in the case when I went in, but asked for it. It was already out on the back table where it had previously been cut for an earlier customer. That meant it was perfect goo and I bought the whole, albeit small, chunk.

It's now in my kitchen about half gone, accompanied simply by some WB Lanham bread that I bought yesterday at Penn Quarter market. Washing it down with a glass (and soon to be an entire bottle) of Ommegang belgian-style ale from Cooperstown, NY.

The Mrs. better get home soon, or she's going to miss out on the Seal Bay.

I'm alternating between Fun Dip and fruit juice filled wax soda bottles from Dylan's, my new favorite store :P

There's nothing like a sugar high at 9:30 on a Sunday

Diet Coke With Lime and some chocolate from Montana that a guy brought in as a thank-you.

Too many disappointing centers in the chocolate, though. Lots of marshmallow ones. And one fruit jelly, ew. I'd rather have a box of See's, where I might occasionally alight upon the delicious sugary sweetness of unexpected marzipan.
