Thursday Thoughts

This past weekend we met friends for lunch at Aladdin's. Here's what SP & I ate:

  • Fatayer (a zesty combination of spinach, onions, and feta folded into a pita pie and topped with feta and scallions)
  • Fattoush (chopped spinach and romaine, Lebanese Salata, and pita chips seasoned with zaatar, tossed with lemon juice, garlic, sumac, extra virgin olive oil, and herbs)
  • Greek Pitza (feta, zaatar, diced cucumbers, green peppers, sliced tomatoes, calamata olives, and sweet basil flakes)

Saturday dinner was at Burgatory. The reason we went there was for the Chocolate Strawberry Shake Special but then we were too cold for a milkshake! My chicken-bacon-egg-greens-tomato-cucumber on brioche was yummy.

What We're Eating:

  • Florentine Prosciutto Broth with Farro & Spinach + side salad
  • Chicken Agrodolce + Baked Goat Cheese Salad
  • Dessert: Raspberry Linzertorte

What We're Watching:

  • Movie: Ford v Ferrari - loved it! I thought I might be a little bored because I do not like racing (I cannot stand Nascar) but this movie made me interested in racing. But not interested enough to watch Nascar. Ugh, so boring watching people drive in circles. How is that even a sport?
  • Movie: Zombieland: Double Tap. It was great to have the original four main cast back & it was a fun movie.
  • TV: We made some progress on His Dark Materials (HBO). Two more episodes to go. The polar bear is the best part of the show.
  • TV: The usual shows. Nothing too exciting.

What I'm Reading:

  • And Dangerous to Know by Darcie Wilde. Of course I started another series with the most recent instead of the first book. Whoops. It was in the mystery section of the library book magazine but it's actually also considered romance and I am not a fan of romance. Ugh. So I have mixed opinions on this one and I'm not sure I'll read the first two books in the series, especially since I have all the Will Thomas & Ken Bruen books to read.
  • My final issue of Bon Appetit arrived. I've been a subscriber for 16 years. I am sad about not renewing. If I end up missing it, I can re-subscribe.
