Ooohhh..figs (or fig preserves) with melted brie, chevre, camembert...anything gooey and runny....ummmm...

The figs on your Gouda triscuits might be nice...

Trader Joe's has some very nice fig preserves.  I got my mother some on my last trip to the city before the shutdowns started (Wow, that was a long time ago!).  She has been making them last, and keeps telling me how much she loves them.  Next time I get a chance to go, I'm getting both of us some more.

Soft boiled egg over sautéed spinach. Lemonade.

Half a croissant, split, with Bernaise-like sauce, turkey, chevre, and bacon, heated until the cheese melted.

Two cookies and tea for dessert.

You people are having some delicious lunch.  We had leftover spinach and feta pizza from Domino's with salad from local restaurant.  Pretty hungry.

Trader Joe's . . . .


That's always my standby for lunch, until today, when it was closed early.

Deli turkey sandwich on wheat toast with mayo and stone ground mustard and sharp cheddar.  I could have this every day.  Also the bottoms of the Lays chips bag, and iced tea. 

We are Fancy, as it used to be said on the old Fora.

Fried trout with ginger and garlic, fried asparagus and Russian salad.

Wonder if Stockman had any leftovers? Sounds better than my boiled egg with mustard greens.

Nope, we ate it all. If it's any consolation, the Russian salad was the Perestroika version - no egg, capers, quail, etc.

We finally got a chance to order lunch delivery yesterday.  I've been wanting to get subs (I reserve "hoagies" for the real deal) for a while, and there is about one restaurant here that makes them.  We got a bunch of different kinds: a cold Italian-ish with oil and vinegar and a cold roast beef with mayo (both with lettuce and tomato, plus onions on the Italian-ish), a hot Italian sausage and a hot reuben, and some other cold sub my spouse got but didn't open yet.  They were pretty good overall, though you just can't get the right rolls here for whatever reason.  I thought the Italian-ish was the best.  The interface only allowed us to add one topping (e.g., we could add oil and vinegar, which were paired, but then not lettuce etc.), so we put it in the special instructions, and it worked out fine.  I just wish they would have put on some salt and pepper, but I guess we will have to add that next time.  Still, it was great to have something different, easy, and yummy, and we have leftovers! (except for the Italian sausage)  I miss good hoagies, but I told my spouse I would probably eat at Wawa every day for a month if they opened one here.  Sigh!

We made stuffed pasta shells today. Ricotta, spinach, onion, homemade marinara, yummy. Added two trays to freezer for later in the week. The remaining ricotta is reserved for cannoli, planned for tomorrow.
