What Are You Eating Right Now?

Recommended Posts

overly fried and overly salted oysters on a bed of ancient arugla, followed by a dried peice of tuna that was served rare - at least they got that part right. oddly it was paired with a poorly executed burre blanc and topped with a "sweet raisin chutney" which did nothing to compliment the flavors - what little there were. the plate was finished with truffled mash potatoes that had neither the hint of truffle or a single crystal of salt.

had a meeting at a restaurant and someone orderd for me as i was running late. note to self - be more punctual.

Staff meal at Notti Bianche? :P

Strawberry Tsunami from Jamba Juice (with a bit of a boost thrown in for good measure). I am giving an informational interview tonight - must stay awake!!!

A little but of curried chicken salad, and a giant glass of water to counteract the 1 1/2 delightful gin concoctions drunk at Firefly.

Pop Tarts Rule!

(Esp. the strawberry frosted ones)

Those are second only to the cinammon ones.

Careful, you could get drummed out of DR.com for admitting to this.

Well, I didn't toast it, does that help? Are there Pop Tart Factions I need to watch out for?

The scary thing is, the huge box of Brown Sugars came with four free... I don't know if I can even say it...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pop Tarts.

:P

Pasta with "raw" heirloom tomato sauce and a fist full of fresh grated reggiano. I could eat this every day....and sometimes I do this time of year!

I'm eating a gin and tonic right this minute. However, for lunch I made a Bacon, Tomato, and BASIL sandwich. Does anybody else substitute basil for lettuce?

had not substituted basil for lettuce before today. i had that as a pre-shift snack, i made a few modifications though.

grilled soprasota, sliced proscutto, heirloom tomatoes, and fried basil, and a thin layer of garlic agliata on toasted flat bread.

:P:wub::P I don't have access to all of that. I'm thinkin' Pepperidge Farm "Italian" bread with Hellmann's mayo and whatever bacon is on sale at the Safeway and tomatoes from the farmers' market. (I buy a bag of basil every week at the farmers' market all during the summer--some of it goes bad before I can use it, but not often. I just think it adds such a wondeful flavor.)

At the risk of sounding sad and pathetic, here goes...

Chicken Tikka Masala takeout in front of the computer in my hotel room in San Diego

Finishing it off with the free bottle of water and chocolate chip cookie they gave me when I checked in yesterday

Wishing I was brave enough to go have dinner at the bar by myself at a nice restaurant but there is no Palena here

Lunch a la Madeline (that's my 10 year old daughter)

Quinoa topped with grilled veggies and "Mama Maddie's Zesty Vinegrette". she's quite the mix master. She used three kinds of fresh herbs, two types of vinegar, lemon, lime and pineapple juice. And you know what, it awesome! But I'm a little biased!
