I saved some bacon fat so I will pick-up some nice bread at the Farmers' market this afternoon...to make a sandwich.


I'm not done yet but 24-hour clock of key lime pie...is ticking faster...

          I would never complain to Jesus but @ 3/$5 his tacos are also a good deal...and quite delicious!

          Nice article about the key lime pies!

          Not many (if any) key lime pies in my hood. Lemon meringue is very popular in Diners (that's where the majority of pies are found in NJ).

          I was very pleased with the results. I didn't intend for the pretzel "crust" to be more like pretzel brittle (one recipe kept saying make sure the pretzels are coarse) but it was sorta nice like that. Next time I'll crush them finer for more of a crust.

          Making the sweetened condensed milk was easy...and it was really lively and delicious. I loved the homemade sweetened Mexican crema. A little thicker and it will be perfect.

          No liners next round. Stupid lines.

          The curious case of key lime pie.

          Curiosity is usually not a good thing for cats like me....but I'm fine... chillin' near the coolers...

            Not exactly a conventional lunch but it's a ROADFOOD lunch...for California...



            Free samples...



            People often complain that the Blueberry Truffles are not very Truffley but the Blueberry Truffles are delicious...



            There ya go...California. I chose Milk not Dark...



            Gotta get that one...



            I also selected a Marzipan...Lemon & Pineapple "Truffles"... & a Milk Chocolate Cherry.

            I just wish it was packed in a box. It's summer in Palmdale and while See's is very cool...the rest of the mall was not so much...



            Thankfully I got them to the car safely and cranked-up the ac...after I bought some Wetzel Bitz...

              SEE'S!
               
              I love the Key Lime Truffles.  I didn't know California Brittle came in dark chocolate.  Why didn't I know!
               
              Marzipan on the left?  Butterscotch square on the right?  Scotch Mallow on the bottom?
               
              No?  That would be my order but the blueberry would be raspberry.
               
              What did you think of the pretzel bites?  I had them at Union Station while waiting for a train to arrive.  I found them too hard and dry.

                I brought the Bitz home...through Antelope Valley Fair traffic. By the end of that drive...we were all squeaking!

                The Key Lime Truffle was fantastic. The See's lady was so nice...I was full of chocolate samples by the time I was ready to make selections. I have a great memory but for some reason when it's about great chocolate my mind goes blank.

                The "California Milks" are @ 12 & 9 o'clock....

                Key Lime is @ 1


                Blueberry Truffle is @ 11....


                Milk Cherry is 3ish...

                The rest are yet to be had....and I can't remember by looking at the jackets.

                Next time I'll wait until it's slow and have all of the wrapped like gifts in the cute little See's boxes. Shake 'em up and guess what's inside...

                  Before lunch it was time for the hair appointment....

                  The well-behaved part of the family...happy and lookin' good...



                  Ok Cousin Cavallo time to get that hair did...



                  I got him out of that situation and decided to do it inside. It's not a wash & set...

                  Awww...very cute...




                  Then it was time to go to Moessner's Farm/Orchard/Fruit Stand/Cafe/Bakery...for lunch.

                  I admired the impressive collection of tomatoes that are very difficult to grow in this area. Moessner's gets it done...





                  Charming cafe...



                  I had a Malibu Ham sandwich (Black Forest Ham - Teriyaki Pineapple - Swiss on Sourdough) and the most amazing beautiful & delicious farm fresh salad with Moessner's raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Best salad EVER...





                  Moessner's own incredible tomato soup...



                  Peach turnover for dessert...

                    I really like their pineapple truffles and cashew brittle.  Haven't tried the key lime or blueberry--sounds like a visit is in order.
                     
                    Sandwich looks good.  Not so sure about that squiggly stuff in the cup...

                      I'm not President of the squiggly stuff fan club. It's been almost 30 (yipes! yipes! strike that 10) years since the last time I had alfalfa sprouts. It worked in this salad.

                      That dressing could fix anything...like my mind...which is a terrible terrible thing.

                        I had a lunchtime guacamole lesson from my BIL.



                        That's me lunch.

                        Yum!

                          Village Grill for lunch...



                          I had faith that the "Phiily Cheese Sandwich" would be spectacular.

                          It was spectacular...



                          They made it on the garlic bread that I enjoy very much.


                          When I look at the first picture I eventually "see" a sardine that's not there so I'll look at this picture instead...



                          A backwards CC McSundae...



                          McApples for my friends...

                            That cheesesteak sandwich looks awfully good...
                             
                            I went to a birthday celebration with friends.  We had mussels:

                             
                            Salad Nicoise (non traditional):

                             
                            And bay scallop ceviche with taro chips:

                              Your lunch looks delicious....and full of very pretty colors!

                              There was a dog in the first picture as well...

                                      A dog?  I see a large insect!
                                      I'm hoping there were more than just 2 mussels.

                                        Ack!  Mar, I see that insect now, too.  
                                         
                                        Yes, there were more mussels--I had about 8 +/-.  And pomme frites.

                                          The taro chips look really really good.

                                          The big frite took care of this creature...



                                          I'm not eating today....

                                              I never had an apple dumpling. Tehachapi is known for the world-famous apples...so I borrowed a few from friends on Cherry Lane so I could make 'em myself....



                                              Hot Stuff cinnamon whiskey tastes a little like Lavoris with more burn (when sipping) but it makes a lovely CC Hot Stuff Caramel sauce for the apple dumplings...



                                              Beautiful delicious & I believe I have a little afternoon bonus buzz....

                                                      Before the dumplings I had beef barbacoa for lunch...



                                                      The beef barbacoa was excellent! It was called a sandwich...but that would imply the bread would play a roll. It was pale & pasty...so it didn't make the cut.

                                                      I've been spoiled by <<<Hoboken>>> bread my entire life.

                                                      Hello <<<Hoboken>>> bread. I miss you...

                                                            Friday night I found some beef ribs that actually had some beef on the ribs, so they became today's lunch.
