Lunch

Lunch: Thursday, January 3, 2019

So, it is not unusual for my lovely wife to pack up leftovers, for my lunch at work, from dinner the night before, and when it is her potato and chicken yellow curry with jasmine rice, I don’t complain at all, as it is one of my favorite things to eat. Yes, it does start with a prepared yellow curry sauce, my current favorite, Mae Ploy Thai Yellow Curry Sauce, but she then spices it up with either Thai chili peppers, habaneros or one of the other varieties that we have begun growing at the house. I highly recommend this one if you don’t have time to make your own yellow curry sauce from scratch. It is also vegetarian before you add whatever ingredients you want, it is useful for vegetarian curries, which the wife often makes me when I am dieting. Either way the flavor is excellent and I look forward to this meal very much, for lunch or dinner. Even my youngest child loves this one.


Thursday Lunch: June 28, 2018

More of the wife’s fantastic cooking in left over form for lunch. This time it’s leftover Chicken JalapeƱo Popper Pasta Cassarole. As my wife knows, I’m a huge fan of cassaroles, which benefits us both quite often since they tend to be easy and quick to make. This one features chicken, lots of cheese, pasta, jalapeƱos for a mild kick and some cream cheese as well. I can and will attest that not only was it really good when she made it for dinner a couple of nights ago, but it also is a fine lunch as leftovers. Can’t wait to see what’s going to be on the menu for dinner.


Wednesday Lunch: June 27, 2018

As some of you know, I’ve been losing weight by eating a mostly vegetarian diet during the week, at least until the last couple of months or so. Various things have upset the apple cart so to speak, but I’ll soon be back to it. Prior to that I had left over Hamburger Helper Lasagna for lunch. Lol. It’s a childhood favorite and still my favorite of the Hamburger Helper line-up. Granted it’s not gourmet, but not everything needs to be. Foodie snobbery is nonsense. Loving food is all about enjoying what you love, cheap, expensive, both, whatever it may be.


Sunday Lunch March 25, 2018

Sunday lunch with the wife at a pizza joint just down the street from us, Googly’s. They have a large, varied menu for a pizza place including pizza, burgers, wings, pasta, subs, etc. They’ve been open a few years and used to be one of our favorite places to get pizza and burgers, but last time we were here a year or so ago, we had something of a customer service issue and we hadn’t been back since. Hopefully that won’t be the case today. Driving up, they have upgraded their outside signage significantly, but the menu that they usually have on monitors behind the counter isn’t working.

The wife has chosen the Jack Daniels burger, it has cheddar, a Jack Daniels barbecue sauce and fried onion strings on it. I went with a standard double burger and a sausage and pepper sub. We ordered the spicy fried mushrooms and the sweet potato fries. Hopefully things are back to their previous quality.


Sunday Lunch

It’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon, all sun and cool breezes on the Texas Gulf coast. Had originally planned to be in Houston today for a meet up with other Fiat owners, Fiats and Fraps, but after St. Patrick’s Day

celebrations last night I couldn’t bring myself to get up at six a.m. to make the drive. Lol. Hopefully the next one is more conveniently scheduled. On the plus side, today is my mom’s birthday so the wife and I are taking my parents out to lunch instead of dinner as originally planned. Waiting outside of Mikoto Ramen Bar for them right now. One of my new favorite places. Ready to eat. Lol
