The food looks great!

My friend makes a Filipino dish called Lumpia around the holidays. So good!
Gotta grab them early (and trip my Sister).They are beloved....and she only makes them once a year. Boooo!

    There was an entire tray of lumpia.  They served them with the sweet chili sauce and they were delicious!

        There's a parade today (it starts in front of my house) and I did not know...until I heard music & whips cracking. So...maybe olive loaf.

          Funny!  There's a triathlon going on around here somewhere.  I saw the sawhorses out yesterday.  I'm skipping lunch.  Maybe dinner as well as the scale showed an additional 3 pounds!
           
          I went back for another lumpia yesterday.
           
          I was in error about the dessert being jackfruit.  It was cassava and delicious.  The jackfruit was one of the main dishes cooked in a coconut milk preparation.  (So-so)

                    Ooooh...there's a LIttle Manila neighborhood in Jersey City. Tomorrow I will have Lumpia for lunch.

                    Today was Hummus. I'll be full until lunch tomorrow.

                      Today I went to T.G.I. Friday's for lunch....with my Brother & Sisters. Not my choice.
                       
                      I had French Onion Soup...
                       
                       
                       
                      It is only 8 WW Points (enough sodium for the next few weeks). The rest of the menu is so bad I don't know how people ever decide to eat.
                      An order or loaded potato skins & a slice of cheesecake would equal 4 days of food.

                        Yesterday I walked through the...
                         

                        Beverly Hills Affaire In The Gardens Art Show

                        I somehow forgot my camera so no pictures were taken.
                         
                        I was looking for a truck that I saw there last year after we had already had lunch at a brick and mortar place.
                         
                        It was there! 
                         
                        Ironically they had been featured on the television show The Sharks the night before so I had to wait in a line that took thirty minutes to inch up to the window...
                         
                        Cousins Maine Lobster
                         
                        When they were financed on The Shark show where they wanted money for another truck I said to Sharon...  I bet the now get a store front restaurant.
                         
                        So...  the choices for Lobster Rolls were Maine that was served cold with a drizzling of butter and mayonnaise or Connecticut which was served warm just drizzled with butter.  I chose the Connecticut.
                         
                        The rolls and lobster are flown in daily from Maine to be authentic.  The spit top rolls were grilled in butter and nicely stuffed with lobster pieces.
                         
                        This was my first ever lobster roll.  I don't know what I was expecting.  I really liked it, but I wasn't WOWed by it.
                         
                        They were advertising East Coast prices for California.  The lobster rolls were $12.50 each.
                         
                        The only problem with mine is a personal problem.  The roll on the outside was greasy and I don't like touching greasy food.
                         
                        I needed more napkins.
                         
                        I washed it down with a Maine Root Soda.
                         
                        Took several sips and passed on the rest of the bottle as it was a full sugared drink.  Not supposed to drink those but always want a taste!
                         
                        I'll eat them again. 
                         
                        The other thing is I was right.  There were cards on the table advertising their restaurant in Old Town Pasadena.

                          That was a good deal. A lobster roll at the Red Hook Lobster Pound truck in NYC is $16.

                          I can't believe how expensive cheese is...in California. Those happy cows are rich. I bet they have homes in Beverly Hills.

                            They do, indeed.
                             
                            They're just ruining the neighborhood.

                                  I'm interested in trying their other offerings. 
                                   
                                  They sold much more that just lobster rolls.
                                   
                                  The show I was referring to was Shark Tank... not The Shark.

                                    Last week when at Costco I had this stupid idea that I'd eat the bag of minced Kale, Cabbage and other unknown green things. 
                                     
                                    It was marketed as a complete salad which included a bag of dried cranberries, some sort of nuts and poppy seed dressing.
                                     
                                    It just sat in my refrigerator staring at me. 
                                     
                                    Maybe I'm avoiding it because it's supposed to be healthy.  Maybe just because it's mostly kale.
                                     
                                    So, instead of wasting whatever it cost me I sauteed a couple cups of the green stuff with some garlic and white pepper. 
                                     
                                    It still didn't look inviting so I beat up a few eggs with salt and pepper and made a frittata. 
                                     
                                    It wasn't bad.  Not great, either but at least I didn't waste it. 
                                     
                                    Now I'm thinking about making some soup.

                                      Lunch was just a super bbq cheeseburger (half pound of 80/20) grilled with toasted seeded bun...

                                        I had a roast pork sub with swiss cheese, bacon, and Italian tomatoes (diced tomatoes and red onion in oil, vinegar, basil and oregano). Just finished it all and now I need a nap.

                                          Maybe I'm avoiding it because it's supposed to be healthy.  Maybe just because it's mostly kale.
                                          Mar, I can't remember what TV show I saw it on but you could pan-roast the kale in the oven until it's crunchy.

                                            Nachos, meatballs, a hot dog, deli, and potato chips.  And beer.  Hey--it was a football party. :)

                                              I usually bring leftovers but as there were none I brought Fairway Market's chicken salad(really good) and pea soup from their fresh food section. Both were delicious.

                                                  Kadhi Pakora for lunch.

                                                  Next time I must remember to removed the very hot little pepper.

                                                    I made stuffed shells yesterday and used a very meaty Bolognese sauce on them along with a generous sprinkling of mozzarella. I divided it into containers and brought one for lunch and froze the others. So good! Everyone who walked by me commented on how good it smelled and looked.

                                                        I adore stuffed shells and will be making some for a party next weekend, too.

                                                          Just split a pizza from local chain Glass Nickel with a coworker.  Alfredo sauce, sausage, mushrooms, and black olives make for a tasty combination.
