I loved reading all of your old-school (literally) cafeteria faves… though I’m not sure what a butter sandwich is, and am more than a little jealous that Erin’s cafeteria served soft pretzels. We had Hot Pockets in HS and thought that was cool.
Yesterday I visited my super-secret Super Target. This one is about 10 minutes from my house (as opposed to 5 for our usual Super-T) but for some reason is NEVER crowded and always has goodies that I can’t find anywhere else. Like yesterday, for instance, they had Clif Mojo bars!! These used to be everywhere, but in the past few weeks I’ve checked Whole Foods, Central Market, 7-Eleven, GreenSpot, and Newflower and no one has them in stock. I think Eddie said that it might have been as a result of the whole peanut debacle, so hopefully these aren’t tained with salmonella.
Anyway, this morning’s breakfast prominently featured the beloved Mojo… along with some milk, apple slices, and clementines:
This morning was our midterm in Hospitality Supervision and afterwards we had a guest speaker, David Cole from i Fratelli. David’s an El Centro grad and gave some great advice on starting and running a business… AND he had pizza delivered to the class. Sweet. I’ve never actually eaten at i Fratelli, but judging by the pizza it’s definitely worth a visit.
In Pastry we baked a couple of devils food cakes, which will be frozen in preparation for a peanut butter mousse cake we’re putting together next week. Yesterday we baked ladyfingers and today they were used to assemble a tiramisu. Am I the only person on the planet who doesn’t like tiramisu? I think I want it to taste like chocolate. And sadly, it does not.
Lunch was a veggie sandwich: hummus, red peppers, romaine and pickles on whole wheat.
This evening I threw together a little somethin-somethin for Wednesday night’s book club (pics tomorrow), so sweet Brian ended up cooking dinner. Turkey tacos… taco salad for me: romaine, cheddar, taco meat, avocado, tomatoes, sour cream and salsa. Along with a crispy taco afterwards:
Off to shower and then hit the hay. Four mile run EARLY tomorrow morning!
Are there any desserts/dishes that you don’t care for but everyone else seems to like?
