OMG my daughter and I and two of her bridesmaids went to lunch today at a new Thai restaurant, Sweet Basil, and WOW was it great. I had what they called Lucky Ginger, it was chicken breast with several different wild mushrooms, scallions all in a spicy gingery sauce with another seasoning I could not figure out, and Jasmine rice in the shape of a star with black rice on top and then more rice in the shape of a quarter moon, all garnished with a basil leaf and artistic floral appearing carrot. I ate the whole thing. That place is on our list. Now I have to try to dupicalte the recipe for home use. I have a Thai cookbook but I doubt that recipe would be in it.

We're coming up on lunchtime now. I was going to cook some fried rice, for some unknown reason I now feel totally NOT hungry.

Probably just make some inside out sandwiches (fry toasted cheese). :oops:

Not hungry because nothing sounds this good or this really sounded bad.

EDIT BY NORGE: the best part of the meal was that lunch is only $6.25

Sounds brilliant!

Sorta makes you feel inadequate.

The price is incredible, almost robbery. On conversion, that's about $10 our money & comparable meals here are priced about double that.

I took Paul grocery shopping with me yesterday...

He picked out almost 60 dollars worth of cheese and lunch meats.
He'll have a large plate of that stuff. I'll have a few pieces of meat
and some raw veggies. :D

That was lunch, the dinners were $11 and above, but they are so beautifully presented, almost just wanted to stare at it for a while to figure it out.

I had to make a run to Trader Joe's today and changed purses and found a ticket stub from the last DUCK football game I attended, and guess what, on the back was a coupon for a FREE $6 million dollar burger from Carl's, and guess what, there is a Carl's in the same strip mall as TJ's, so I had that, fries and lemonade. I am stuffed, but it was good but not as good as they advertise it to be.

I went to lunch with a friend of mine at a restaurant in Reno, NV called Woo Chon. I had beef bulgogi, rice, asian slaw, miso soup, and green tea. :D

norgeskog, I went to Trader Joe's today, also. It is my favorite store. They are a great store for buying lunch stuff.

Since I went shopping, yesterday and have a fridge stuffed with food, I am having wrap for lunch. I have garlic herb tortillas which I will spread with herb cream cheese, and layers of salami, herbed smoked turkey, and lettuce.
