Lunch 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A light lunch with friends. Eight adults and two kids (who snatched at the food before I could photograph it - hence some incomplete dishes).

 

First up came two "salads"

20190731_124210.thumb.jpg.516e1a6697b84a9e35b2507976c69865.jpg

This monstrosity consisted of shredded cabbage and cherry tomatoes slathered with sweet Kewpie mayonaisse.

Whereas this consisted of mixed fruit and tomatoes with sweet Kewpie mayonaisse.

For  some reason, it seems one of the waiters ran out to the local KFC and got us this medley! It was also cold.

It's 95 F today and not the ideal weather to cook corn in the house, but the season just started here and I woke up thinking about it, so I turned up the A/C, went to the local farm stand and corn is what I had for lunch.

Yesterday …. a scoop of macaroni salad and the last of the 3 bean salad (next salad is marinating and I deem it will be ready tomorrow).

Today … 1/2 sandwich of some Smithfield ham and swiss on a local white toast.

                thinking about some of the yellow watermelon I prepped the other day as dessert

Try it in the microwave...leave husk on, full power 4 minutes, cut the base end off and squeeze out the cob...husk free and enjoy.

This is the only way I cook corn for 2 or 3 anymore.  For large amounts I use the cooler method.

 

Mr. Kim took Jessica and me on an adventure on Saturday.  We went to the farmer’s market, a canal boat ride, the Virginia Museum to see the exquisite Tibet exhibit and a wonderful little show of teeny, weeny mosaics from the European Grand Tour.  Next was lunch at Billy Jack’s Shack in Shockoe Bottom.  We started with Fried Bread and Butter pickles:

IMG_0084.JPG.de572cc046371152722a24d559aa6ded.JPG

Not sure if it was the coating or the pickles or both, but I wasn’t crazy about the sweetness. 

 

I had the sliders and tots:

EADM5642.JPG.5f7bfa37da3340cb67805ec7097373b7.JPG

On the left is the “Mike Teevee” – black angus topped with caramelized onions, bacon, American cheese, & BBQ sauce.  This was very good.  My other slider was the Leghorn – fried chicken (I could also have chosen grilled or Nashville hot) w/ American cheese, bread and butter pickles, and slaw.  Again, I think the problem may have been the coating on the chicken.  There was an odd sweetness.  And I’m not a huge fan of cheese on chicken sandwiches. 

 

Mr. Kim also had the sliders – his with sweet potato fries:

IMG_0089.JPG.32304073c6a5a8557730f12ec909ff3e.JPG

The one on the left is the Porky Piggin – slow roasted BBQ pulled pork w/ American cheese and slaw.  The BBQ was very good, but we don’t believe cheese belongs on BBQ.  His other slider was the Leghorn, except Nashville Hot.  He liked it a lot.  The sweet potato fries were fantastic.  They stayed crisp and had a nice, sweet flavor. 

 

Jessica had the Mr. Miyagi:

Togarashi fried chicken dunked in sticky, sweet chili sauce, scallion curls, cucumber, pickled carrots, and Kewpie mayo.  She loved this.

 I prefer to throw the cobs into the burning pits of hell and leave them there for eternity. But you knew that!

Just to torture @liuzhou, I'll share yesterday's lunch.

Pasta salad made with roast chicken, red bell pepper and sugar snap peas.   Corn was cooked in the manner described above.

Penne is cherry tomato rose sauce (not heavy on the cream), with onion, garlic, some chili, chives, Pecorino Romano and Parm.

toasted wheat bagel, open face. One half hummous with ET bagel seasoning sprinkled on top, the other with cream cheese. Need to replenish my tomato supply, hoping the co-workers start bringing their overage in to the office soon...

Back to Lodi on our way home.    This time, stopped at a favorite marisco shop.

A super cerviche tostado with prawns, octopus and faux crab.

And DH had surrounded more than half of his prawn cocktail before I remembered to take a pic

Super nice people.    Their daughter graduated from law school this spring and just passed the bar!      YES!

After a liquid breakfast a quick lunch at “drunk street” ... an apt name, as they have exactly the food I was craving !

One of my favorite food memories was a shellfish and seaweed crepe in a funky little creperie on an island off Brittany.    Scallops, shrimp, seaweed.   I've never seen one offered elsewhere.    Your omelette will do nicely.
