2 slices of toast, each with an egg on top (over medium was the intention, yokes broke and got a little overdone). Then topped with left over pulled pork, reheated in a frying pan with soy sauce, cooking wine, chili paste and a little bit of honey.


BBQ cheeseburger, plain potato chips, glass of sweetened iced tea


Two poached eggs & toast


Small package of chicken and vegetable salad, two buns, and some kabanos.


Refried beans blended with brown rice, grated cheese, romaine lettuce, and sour cream.

Today I was tight on time because of theater rehearsals so all I could scrape together was salami, pita bread, and a Snickers Bar.


Hawaiian pizza.


Salsa [Foamy]creamy-creamy[/Foamy] cream cheese on everything bagel, 6 green olives, and 2 dozen fresh Washington state cherries

Liberty's Edge

White fish salad, muenster, lettuce and tomato on an egg bagel with a tossed salad and matzo ball soup.


Microwave burrito with a cheese-like substance melted atop
A handful of Cheez-Its

Pepper grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes.

Silver Crusade

Leftovers...Lots of leftovers


Roasted pomfret with onions, tomatoes, and leftover mashed potatoes from yesterday.


Skipped breakfast, then driving back from errands & grocery shopping, I started to get dizzy and light-headed, so stopped at closest fast food place. Got crappy double cheeseburger and lukewarm small order of fries. :/


Spaghetti bolognese.

Scarab Sages

Homemade minestrone.

Pff, they go together pretty well, regardless what Italian purists say. Sure, tagliolini instead of spaghetti goes the extra mile, but it's still a very tasty dish.

If you're not going to use tagliolini, you could at least use fettuccine or rigatoni so the ragu has something to stick to.

For today, mushroom risotto.

The sauce still sticks to the spaghetti; less than the egg-based pastas, certainly, but it's not like the thing comes out clean. And it tastes and feels pretty good, which is really the argument I'm making when I disagree that they don't go together. Imperfect is not the same as bad.

My point is, at the risk of an ad hominem, even if spaghetti bolognese is not a real Italian dish, there has to be a reason why it's so popular everywhere else, which I'd be willing to say wouldn't happen if the ingredients really didn't go together.

After all, it's not like one is trying to recreate an authentic peninsular meal every time pasta is for lunch (this doesn't mean an authentic meal is often a rewarding experience, of course).


Sorry, meant to say ad populum, not ad hominem.

Shoot, people still order General Tso's chicken at "Chinese" restaurants, despite the fact that it was invented in America.


Pork with "Chinese" vegetable composition (i.e. carrot, with some mun mushrooms, and possibly some bamboo) and potatoes.


Skipped (slept through) lunch, so linner?/dunch? was mushroom couscous (from a box), a (pre-made, frozen) country-fried steak patty, and half a 20oz bottle of Dr Pepper.

Hopefully Chinese at the usual place, if schedule allows.

Gheymeh stew over rice.

Man, that's a crime against all of humanity. Rice and peas are the staple of all Caribbean and Creole cooking.


Tofu stir-fry, out of choice.

That whooshy sound you hear is not, in fact, Yan-Ci-Bin, but my mother, sighing with happiness several miles away.


Like yesterday, a honey ham & swiss on onion poppyseed bun with 6-7 Wickles Pickles chips and a glass of sweetened chilled tea.


A turkey burger with Swiss cheese, sauteed mushrooms, and caramelized onions.

Scrappel, egg, and cheese on a soft kaiser.

I read the first word as "shrapnel".

Liberty's Edge

Is that supposed to be some sort of dig against scrapple, or one against my typing ability?

Not everything has to be a dig against something/someone.

I made a sloppy reading error, and the resulting imagination of a shrapnel sandwich was (I thought) funny enough to share.


If it helps, I also read it as "shrapnel"* the first time. I've never had scrapple, and I didn't notice any mistyping until I Googled it.

* I blame repeated viewings of the original Transformers cartoon and the Insections for this. [Shrapnel]...for this.[/Shrapnel]

Once again proving that subtle sarcasm doesn't necessarily translate well to text.

I understood your intent, and I thought it was a funny mental image.

When my daughter was little, her mother once asked her at a restaurant if she wanted to have the soup and salad bar. My daughter looked at her like she was crazy and said "the stupid salad bar?" We've been calling it that ever since. :)

And today was strawberry yogurt with granola. Sweet and cool for a hot day.

I didn't know what scrapple was.

And now I do; I also now know what 'Scrapple from the Apple' was (presumably) about. I thought it was just made-up Bebopese before.


Rice with fried diced pork, yogurt, and scallions.


Four glazed doughnut holes, a banana, and more coffee.

Crepes with sweet cream cheese filling. Shop-bought, I haven't made any myself for ages. Too much bothering with eggs and milk.
