i surprised my wife and son today at their favourite vegetarian cafe and had a healthy lunch with them.

actually, i worked the midnight shift, and then went home and to bed around 9am. i couldn't sleep when i heard dw and the boy heading out for lunch, so i jumped up, got washed, and sped to the cafe.

i saw them seated near the front window with dw's back to the it, so i walked quickly past a few times on the sidewalk letting my boy see me, but not dw. it was funny to hear my boy insisting that he kept seeing "dad" outside, but every time dw looked i hid, so she kept telling him that i was home alseep and to sit down and eat.

it was funnier the longer it lasted.

anywho, dw had the vegetarian "chicken" wrap and a fruit shake, my boy had vegan gluten free dumplings, and i had the wood ear, shiitake, and warm seaweed over romaine hearts salad, aka the mountain and sea salad. everything was delicioso.

Today I enjoyed the leftover parmesan-garlic encrusted Tilapia on parmesan-garlic sauteed Golden Swiss Chard, accompanied by a couple of baked stuffed clams, from last night's dinner.

Good story, buckytom
But what's this about eating a "woodear"? what's that?

...and I like your idea of a complete lunch, babetoo...candybar with an iced coffee

moll, a wood ear is a type of mushroom. they're thin mushrooms with a number of undulations or folds, and they grow on the side of trees resembling it's ear.



so now when you talk to yourself while hiking in the woods, watch what you say. the trees have ears.

i guess it ruins a women's logic that if a man is alone in the forest and says something with no one around to hear it, he's still wrong.

I ended up having french dips with sauteed onions, peppers and mushrooms spread with some horse radish and dipped in au jus and potato salad. Dessert was some chocolate ice cream creation that took three sittings to get down, it was huge and rich. This was served by our DON and her assistant as a thank you for our work.

Tonight will be the tortilla soup.
