Befitting the hot & humid weather: Unagi-Don set at Kinjo’s Izakaya, Central, HK. The unagi was steamed & grilled, and dusted with toasted nori, sansho and sesame - just perfect !

I thought that if I recreated my favourite sandwich for work lunches, subbing cheese with capsicum, mayo with air and a bakery fresh roll with a plastic box, I would trick myself into enjoying a healthy salad. 

Didn't work.

I had been looking at and wondering about, these crab legs in a local market for a few days. They seemed interesting. Today, I was there to buy sea scallops for dinner and thought I would give them a try.

The flavor was good, but the meat stuck to the inside of the shells so much, that I knew Deb would lose patience and quickly tire of them, so they were delisted from any future menu. After vacuuming up the mess and shaking out the table linen, I decided to fetch a bit of Scandinavian Courage from the far reaches of the freezer to set things right.

Yesterday my good friend and I took a day trip North to a lovely town that boasts a popular quilt shop for an hour or so of fabric shopping.  It was a beautiful day and the first time I’ve had a real outing since my surgery nearly six weeks ago.  Of course, the scenery is something to be seen to be believed!  

I've been semi confined to home (self-imposed) recovering, which took a lot longer than I had thought it would.

We had a great time and since she drove I bought lunch.  We stopped at a beautiful resort that has a very nice Western decor restaurant.  We each had their prime rib dip sandwich and cole slaw along with a Corona for me, soda for her (non-drinker).

No big fabric purchases, just a few small items.

Today for lunch, something new to us from our Indian cookbook. Fried Salmon with Cilantro-Yogurt sauce. That is a simple title for a very complex flavor dish, the salmon was marinated in a cilantro + ginger + hot chile + spices mix, 1/2 of the mix was mixed with yogurt and forms the sauce. We had basmati rice with it which really helps. The salmon was super flavorful.

P.S. We made a lot more salmon then this, but I don't like to crowd the plate.  We ate it all.

1/2 sandwich - toasted whole wheat, Miracle Whip, turkey, Finlandia lacey swiss and well cooked bacon.  Side of sliced tomatoes.

Just the right amount.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Monday is usually the day that my friends and I all go to lunch together.  Our favorite café caught fire in December and we were assured that it would be back in business in short order.  However, my belief is that because the owners had done little to nothing in the way of fire prevention (no sprinkler system or even smoke detectors) that they took a big hit from the insurance company.  They have decided not to re-open.  I am so sad because this was our favorite spot.  The food was very good, the service as well and it had a certain atmosphere that we really enjoyed.  Now we meet up at a few different but similar places.  Yesterday was another café in the same area with good food, friendly service and a fantastic salad bar.

One friend and I had the Reuben, one had the cheeseburger special and one had the taco salad.  All declared very good.

Since I also had a big salad I brought home half of my Reuben which I'll enjoy today for lunch.

I was making a fruit crisp to use up some peaches, blueberries and blackberries that had been around on the edge of too long. Had too much fruit for the deep dish pie pan, so...

Fruit and cottage cheese for lunch.
