What are you eating Monday June 10, 2019?

Lunch was Rotisserie chicken and salad (Trader Joe's Sorrento blend greens, Trader Joe's Wild baby arugula, dandelion greens, black olives, green olives, anchovy fillet, grape tomatoes, smokehouse almonds, Trader Joe's dried tart cherries, feta cheese, fresh mozzarella pearls and stuffed grape leaves) dressed with EVOO, red wine vinegar and spices.
That's on a small luncheon plate but I only ate half. I saved what was left for later. I don't mind wilted salad.

Is that Black Cow a reference to the candy bar or a Holstein cow?

No. It's for a beverage. Check out the link in msmofet's post.

Was just going to suggest that.

I have planned:
Kalua Pork & Cabbage
New Zealand Green Lip Mussel Poke
sliced Kamaboko
and the ever present steamed White Rice

that's my plan anyways, but stuff happens

DH has an appointment later this afternoon with
an Orthopedic Surgeon it's a great possibility
that he torn his left Bicep while removing
luggage from the overhead bin on our return
flight from Hawaii
Positive thoughts and prayers would be most helpful

Every day is iced tea day and herbs and spices day for me!

And lately, every day has been greens day for me, as I can't harvest them as fast as they grow! They are all 'cut and come again' varieties, and only one bok choy variety has bolted, though it then became yu choy, with an even better taste. Tonight, I'm going to make a version of that Skillet Cabbage, posted by luckytrim, but using senposai, in place of cabbage. This is a cross between cabbage and komatsuna. Here's a photo of it 3 days ago - it had grown even more, by the time I harvested some today.

Jeannie had a hankering for a fried egg sandwich, so I said, "Go for it."

For the first 10 years of our 25 together, I tried to duplicate what she does to that sandwich but, finally gave up.. I have no idea what she does but, I actually salivate when she is making them..

We will have tapioca pudding later..

SO and I took a ride to Hampton Beach, NH to get a dose of ocean and beach (and seafood) following a crappy Spring. We had lunch at an ocean-side restaurant consisting of calamari, sea scallops and lobster roll with fries and onion rings.

As a result, neither of us has a big appetite so we'll just graze for dinner.

Kaneoh--you and yours are in my thoughts. Hoping he heals well. That is really tough.
Pepper--nice garden of greens. A salad, a saute, a smoothie, a wrap.


-whole wheat bread dough, into a crust.

Tomato sauce, sprinkled with onion and garlic powder, oregano, salt.
Sliced raw mushrooms
chopped green pepper
cooked diced onion
slice black olives
No-cheeze sauce (no dairy) drizzled on top.
Baked and enjoyed.

I won't forget to put pineapple on the next one.

Local supermarket has dry scallops on sale for $11.99 / lb. this week, so I bit. Dinner was grilled scallops, white basmati with sun dried tomatoes and scallions, house salad.

Andy - go to the Seaglass restaurant in Salisbury MA at high tide on a rough day. The waves hitting the restaurant are impressive.
