combos

Howdy strangers!

It’s been eons (for me) since I last posted- an entire two days!- but I’m inclined to believe I was correct as

1. You’ve already seen plenty of PB+B oats, GoLean Crunch (which, incidentally, I had a coupon for and tried for the first time and totally tastes like Sugar Smacks! Score!), and cappuccinos in the rest of the blog world.

2. I had an AWESOME dinner of mussels in white wine broth and bruschetta for ridiculously cheap last night because- bargain alert!- McCormick and Schmick’s has crazy cheap appetizers at the bar after 9- but as we all know I am rubbish at taking pictures in dimly lit restaurants.

Anywho, I now feel I have enough non-dark, non-boring photos for a post!

Combos refers not to those nacho-flavored, terribly-artificial yet frighteningly-addictive snack foods, but rather various combinations I’ve been eating lately.

CRAZY AWESOME SAMMICH! Corned beef+ hot peppers+ red onion+ lettuce (no tomato, alas). Actually, the hot peppers were sort of painfully, mouth-hurtingly hot after awhile. Farmer’s market guy is a LIAR. But a delicious sammich.

And the combo was made all the better by the accompaniment:

Told you I lived on these during the winter!

Continuing on a sandwich-y note:

Oh em gee. Yesterday’s lunch featured an open-faced sandwich of pear, Laughing Cow, and a touch of leftover Gruyere from the reception the other night. No words.

Also, I’ve been having a love affair with Trader Joe’s pesto chicken (which my vegetarian friend purchased for her carnivorous boyfriend when he was in town, and when he left without eating it was nice enough to bequeath on me). It is awesomely awesome.

I had it like so:

With whole wheat penne and micro-steamed red peppers.

Finally, a good salad:

Bok choy+ apple+ lemon juice+ honey+ veggie oil. Fab. In the summer I made a similar salad that also included *fennel* and I can’t say enough good things.
