My college roomie was in town and we met for lunch.
wonderful tri-colore salad to start
pizza with squash blossoms and burrata
pizza margherita with fior di latte mozzarella shipped from Italy and basil crumbs (which I want to figure out how to make)

Hot tamales!

Ive heard about a specialty Tamale shop for the last few years, but had never tried it out. My daughter picked up a couple dozen after work, and theyre really delicious, so far. They even have some vegetarian and vegan specialties. Their corn and cornbread one was great. Their red pork was quite spicy, but had good flavor.

Im going to try their Chicken Mole one for lunch tomorrow. These are not parking lot tamales, but pretty big 1/2 pounders. Not cheap at $38 a dozen, but theyre certainly filling!

Out fishing today. On the boat, lunch was a wrap from WaWa. Turkey, lettuce, bacon and cheddar. With an Arnold Palmer to drink.

Breakfast and lunch today were last nights leftover beef barley soup and I decided to go meatless for dinner with garlic naan and roasted zaatar kabocha squash.

Much of your dining choices make me depressed.

Because they're nowhere near as exotic and interesting as most others' meals here?
I agree that a bowl of cornflakes is pretty dull, but I enjoy them!
