I love stuff like this and I never think to make it.  Looks delicious!

Neither do I.  But it seemed perfect for Mother's Day.

As part of a fridge/freezer clearing drive, for lunch today I boiled up some frozen, but home made, wontons and ate them with yellow Sriracha sauce and ground black pepper.

Today, I ignored the work I was meant to be doing and went lunch shopping instead, intending to cook. Right by the entrance to the supermarket is a Japanese conveyor belt place. It is Chinese owned and operated. Not super quality, but adequate. Laziness prevailed,, lunch cooking forgotten  and the shopping was temporarily abandoned.

Shrimp sushi. There were  two, but I ate one before remembering to take a picture.

Tuna sashimi. The lighting was a bit odd. It looked normal, honestly.

Salmon sushi 6 ways. I'm not a fan of mayo on sushi, especially sweet Kewpie!

Scallop sushi. The best thing I ate.

Tuna sashimi. Again, I ate one slice before taking the picture.

Cost the equivalent of USD 15.50.

Out and about today, so I treated myself to another sample of the great barbecue with which we're blessed here. This is a "pig plate," specifically the "child adult" size, which I kinda thought was appropriate, at the Dixie Pig in Blytheville, another Delta institution.

An oddity in barbecue-dom, it offers salad instead of slaw.

The salad was the first thing I noticed!  "....the HELL???".  Then I noticed the other oddity in barbecue-dom - what looks like fresh cut fries!  Wow!  I've never had excellent pig (which it looks like that is) with anything but from-frozen fries.  I love frozen fries, so that's fine.  I'm still boggling at the salad, though.  😄

They were, in fact, fresh-cut fries. I do love me a nice crispy crinkle-cut frozen fry, but these were cooked VERY well. Right ratio of crisp to creamy. And yes, it was very good pig. Not the best I've ever had, but very good.

A typical light meal (in north of Germany). Oldenburg is Germany's kale capital.
