I just got back from a quick 2 item store run! Well $65.00 and 4 bags later!! I am craving Focaccia bread!! LOL I have the ingredients to make a Kalamata olive, rosemary & herbs, grated parmesan & romano cheese and onion Focaccia Bread.

Tonight will be cold cut sammies, salad with homemade buttermilk ranch dressing and I even scored a sour garlic deli pickle!! YUMMY!!

It is. It was a new place that opened a few months ago. Much better than the place we usually get take away from. (Shhh..quiet.. I think we will be getting take away from here from now on.)

I had something called Crispy Two Slice with Szechuan Sauce. It was beef and chicken with lots of veg (broccoli, mini-corn, snow pea, carrots, mushrooms and I believe bok choy) in a brown sauce. Not too spicy but good.. but... nothing was crispy;\??? SO got Cashew Chicken (hard to find down here at take-outs places so it was a happy occation to see it in the menu.)

They had 2 things on the menu I didn't recognize. Going to post a question on them in the other Forum.

Kades, I used them in the tomato sauce. I roasted the tomatoes, Cubanelles, garlic and onion then used them all to make a sauce with dried porcini, oregano and some fresh basil.

Genoa salami on a poppy seed roll (I actually didn’t eat the roll but I thought just salami on the plate wouldn’t look so nice), salad greens (butter lettuce, radicchio, escarole & endive) dressed with homemade buttermilk ranch dressing and topped with garlic & herb marinated green olives, Almond Accents (original flavored oven roasted) & a shake of McCormick’s Lemon & Herb Perfect Pinch, tomato salad and sour garlic deli pickle.
