I spent the morning sipping tea and working on my outline for my Foodservice paper. Blah! But I did get to enjoy this yummy loose leaf tea that Alex from Chicago gave me. I had no tea strainer and just got this little spoon guy yesterday –
I have also been admiring the modern new shower curtain my mom got me yesterday for our powder bath. It totally makes the den peeking out from the bathroom! Thanks mom!
Andrew surfaced (he spend the night at his friends’) and came over to shower with Karen around 1pm. Then we all headed to lunch at M5 to wish him bon voyage back to New Orleans.
We ordered some pita bread + hummus to start. They have the BEST pita bread! Doughy and hot out of the oven –
I also had a little of Karen + Andrew’s Caesar salad –
I debated ordering the Spinach + Goat Cheese Salad and a cup of Squash + Apple Soup but I decided to order something I wouldn’t normally order to be different – a “SPT” – Salmon, Pancetta + Tomato Sandwich. It was good, but way too oily for my taste and left me wanting more healthy bites. I didn’t even think to ask for it without condiments and butter and for some reason was picturing a flat sandwich instead of a huge bun. Guess I get what I always get for a reason, and I don’t order sandwiches enough to remember all of the tricks to make them lighter (like requesting the bun “dry”) But it was still good. It came with a little salad (I asked for “extra salad” and am not sure where that was…) and really fancy crispy fries.
I ate the whole sandwich open-faced without the top half of the bun –
And about 5 of the fries –
Plus I had a bite of the husband’s grilled cheese + tomato soup (he met us on his work break – just typed bread by accident!)
I wasn’t really planning a big lunch today, but I got a big lunch! We’re just planning a low-key evening at home tonight, so I’ll have something fresh and simple.
Off to crank out this paper. I just realized that if I just type it up and get it over with I can relax tonight so I’m on a mission to finish it ASAP!
