Bedtime snack

We have some ricotta to finish up. Cherries have been plentiful and cheap this year. I got them together, making macerated cherries with a little honey and even less red wine vinegar, a twist of salt and fresh pepper. Topped them with toasted and crushed slivered almonds. Just enough ricotta left for a couple of ricotta toasts...once I get crunchy bread in the house. I think hot dog buns wouldn't make good ricotta toast...

While watching "TV" on the computer last night, I chopped up a big batch of pico de gallo. Ate about a pint of it on Ritz crackers.

Gee, hasn't anyone been snacking?

DH and I went to the town square, where there was an
artists' guild fair this weekend, and as we walked around
I spied this food vendor with Bao and Potstickers.
YAY!
Sunday afternoon Dim Sum in the middle of the desert!

They had several different choices, but my eye went
straight to the bamboo steamer basket with the
Char Siu Bao, in my world that's called Manapua.

This sweet couple and their adult daughter were working the booth,
and Mister Vendor came up to me and asked me what I would like.
I said, "You look just like my grandpa!"
he asked me what grandpa's name was and he replied,
"I usually get that I look like Jimmy Stewart".

Anyways, back to my snack...

I was so excited, I asked DH to hold my bounty while I got out my camera and took a bite...



That's the second time today that I've had something
resembling canned pet food
What have you had for breakfast lately?

It hasn't been a good food day for me

I've seen them at Target as well as CVS,
I don't remember where you are, but online ordering is good too

I've mainly been snacking on Orville Reddenbacher's Naturals Simply Salted popcorn. It seems to be pretty good.

1/4 cup popcorn kernels in paper lunch bag. One and a half to two minutes in microwave on high. Add salt and/or butter. Easy peasy, all natural and inexpensive. Also doesn't taste as "heavy" with whatever as bought pop in bags.
