No photograph because it wasn't pretty  and I am positive that no one else has so little class.  Eaten from the plastic food container taken from the refrigerator using nothing more then the fingers I was born with (and the teeth which were a later addition) I devoured the back and wings of a rotisserie chicken. So there.

That's me. 

 

The ex joked that by the time I was done with a chicken carcass, any dogs in the vicinity would turn up their noses at it. I've been known to go to the extent of biting the ends off the thigh bones and sucking out the marrow.

Matzo ball soup from the local Jewish deli. Everyone in the house is working on some kind of cold thing. :( Outstanding soup, though.

One of the most serendipitous "that ought to be good" lunches I've had in a while; mayo, roasted and frozen cherry tomatoes, a couple of slices of bacon and some brie layered on potato-flax seed bread and broiled. One piece made a quite substantial and tasty lunch!

The center piece of brie sort of slid into the gap when I cut the toastie in half. Could have probably done with two pieces.

Brie makes for an Excellent Toastie Ive found : I look for TJ's versions that ' bulge ' in the wrapped slices offered.

 

there is a reason for that  ....

 

then home-age the slice for added ' flavor '   I find the wintertime selections at TJ's not as bulge-ey and don't age as nicely as the

 

warmer times.   but still , and excellent choice for Toasties.

Lunch out with my husband today at one of our favorite spots, Michiru in Webster.

 

We each had a bowl of Hot and Sour Soup.

He had a Tonkatsu and Vegetable Tempura Bento, which included egg rolls, California rolls and rice.

And I had the General Tso's Chicken.

I was intrigued by a couple of posted sandwiches that included braunschweiger, onion and mayo/mustard. I am no longer intrigued and will return to my routine of enjoying my braunschweiger in an open-face, dark bread sandwich with pickled beets or tomatoes. À chacun son goût.  The curried apple and parsnip soup that I made yesterday was still really good.  This time I enjoyed it with some Aleppo pepper.

Not at all the lunch I planned.:angry: But ranting will change nothing. And in the end there's not much wrong with kielbasa or cambozola. Still. . . . .

Fish sandwich on a toasted whole wheat bolillo roll, slaw, carrots and celery:

IMG_4334.jpg

 

The fish was some sort of TJ's frozen battered halibut pieces that I found disappointingly dry on their own.  They were rather tasty here, doused with some TJ's sriracha ranch dressing.

I thought I had it down in my head what to order, but somehow I screwed it up and ordered 2 spicy tuna California rolls and 1 spicy tuna roll, instead of 2 spicy tuna rolls and 1 spicy tuna California roll (you can see how the confusion sets in), but when it came to over twenty dollars, I realized there was a problem. Then when I picked up the take-out and felt the weight of it, I knew.

It was still good, even though I had the last few pieces as a late night snack.

Leftover linguine with pesto (from a local pizza place - everyone else had pizza last night) with some leftover grilled chicken added. Eaten too fast for a photo, but for pizza place food it was really very good. The pesto had a nice fresh taste.

Once again the best laid plans… I really wanted steak and eggs for breakfast. To me that is the height of decadence.  But it was not to be so here's lunch.

Panzanella made with grape tomatoes from TJ, Zima tomatoes from WF, home made bread toasted with olive oil.  Not the same as summer panzanella but acceptable.  Wild chives @gfron1
