Lunch Date

It’s fun to go out for lunch.

I love cooking. And I love cooking in the middle of the day – I think I like lunch even more than dinner. But sometimes it’s nice to stroll through town and get some great food at a restaurant.

Today we went to a favorite, Guanaco’s Tacos Pupuseria, a lovely Salvadoran restaurant a few blocks away.

I had a vegetarian taco, a pupusa with spinach, cactus and zucchini, and fried yucca.

It was all delicious. Fried yucca tastes like the best hash browns you could ever wish for.

So good! And definitely not something I could/would make at home.

That’s why it’s nice to go out for lunch.


Weekend Planning on a Wednesday, Breakfast Edition

It’s not all cooking, all the time, ’round these parts.

I have to go out to eat too, you know.

It’s a good idea, going out to eat. Especially for breakfast. Breakfast is the best meal to eat at a restaurant.

Because you get things like Pumpkin Oat Pancakes with Cranberry Orange Compote.


This glorious meal happened last Saturday at Glo’s, in Seattle. The food was good. The place is tiny, and was jammed. The servers were super nice.

G ate this. A bean omelette. The hashbrowns were great. Brown enough. Crunchy. Salty. I love hashbrowns.

G’s brother ate this. More delicious hashbrowns. I don’t even know what else is happening on this plate. I spy with my little eye a cabbage/grapefruit garnish. And jalapenos.

Everyone left happy. A late breakfast out is a great addition to any weekend.

That’s not really news, but it’s important to remember. Think about breakfast on this fine Wednesday, my friends. Think about the weekend to come. Plan where you’ll eat a late breakfast. The mere thought will get you through Thursday and Friday.
