Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

Recommended Posts

Our niece is moving to Florida and came over yesterday for a good-bye lunch.  Just sandwiches – egg salad, tunafish salad and white and rye bread:

“Chippy dip” (the name a tiny Jessica gave chips and dip – it stuck and now is one of those family names):

Lunch today with friends at our favorite nearby café.

Mine was a patty melt with cold slaw on the side….vey good although the cole slaw had a small amount of pineapple in it and the dressing wasn't my particular favorite.

My friends had eggs and bacon and one had taco salad.  The food there is very good and it's a very friendly place to go.

Salami, marinated zucchini ribbons and roasted red peppers with mayo and Dijon mustard along with the first of the homemade pickles from the garden. This time, on a poppy seeded hard roll, plus I started slicing the zucchini destined for sandwiches, twice as thick as those intended for salads or garnishes. The thicker slice brings a very satisfying crunch to the table in the sandwich.

I would need jaw retractors!   But once that was done I would love that sandwich.

It also helps to leave your sense of decorum by the mirror when you eat this sandwich, and don't bother picking it back up until after you've cleaned up.

I've been a member here for years, but almost never post anything. In an effort to start carrying my weight here is a picture of today's lunch. My version of falafel based on what's made at Falafel's Drive-In in San Jose. FWIW, they were featured on Triple-D a few years back.

The sad thing is, I've taken hundreds of pictures over the years, inspired by everyone here. I've just been too lazy to post them. I just retired from teaching and I no longer have even that as an excuse for not posting.

I use my iPhone to take the pictures, and automatically upload them to my laptop. I use the Photos app to edit them (they always need editing, at least in my case). We've got a decent digital SLR around, but it always seems like too much bother, and so rarely gets used.

After a few hours in the garden, I made another favorite of mine for lunch, mortadella, imported fontina cheese, marinated zucchini, roasted red pepper on a hard roll with mayo and Dijon mustard. The cheese seemed to stabilize this one so it was much easier and less messy to eat than the similar sandwich I made yesterday.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Lunch came from the smoker today.  Well first it came from Walmart. I was in there because Valencia oranges are in season now and they have them. About the only time I drink orange juice is when I can squeeze those wonderful oranges.   After I got them I looked around and saw this big steelhead trout fillet and decided it would be good for lunch. It spent about an hour and a half in the smoker with  corn and tomato topped with bread crumbs and butter and smoked with apple wood.  The corn had a little too much time with the smoke but it was still juicy and tender.

Cold soba noodles in miso and sesame paste dressing, with soft tofu, edamame and scallions.

Poorly shaped but tasty tamago.

Yesterday's lunch was a salad using greens & other veg from the garden and a quarter of a sandwich made with the last of the Montreal Smoked meat.  Oh, and a bowl of cherries.

I haven't had a baked potato since winter so that's what I'm having for lunch today as soon as it's out of the CSO.

A @HungryChris-inspired sandwich, adapted for the smaller appetite.

Lunch today was KFC picked up while I was in town.  dark meat chicken (original style) was good, once I peeled off the flabby skin.  I threw out the too sweet cookie along with the biscuit.  The potatoes and gravy were good too.
