On Wednesday, we went to Ian’s Pizza and had a couple slices and split a salad between movies – I had a potato, cheese & ranch dressing slice that was really good, and a feta, spinach and tomato that was less so – somehow the spinach had an old taste. There were two women interviewing a blind guy at one of the tables, about his writing career, it sounded like – couldn’t quite figure it out.
On Thursday, I tried to take a bigger lunch – I was in phone interviews from like noon to 4:00, but there were usually 15 minute breaks between each interview so I had just eaten my PBJ on home made multi grain – kind of like this but with that American Spoon apricot jam – at about 3:45. We didn’t get home until after 11:00, and I made a bowl of oatmeal with quick oats – kind of pasty – but still good with brown sugar and raisons and organic half & half.
On Friday, before our single (but long) film, I went to the library school director’s retirement party, and had a beer and a few appetizer-y thing – a couple of bacon wrapped water chestnuts – very good, a few slices of cheese and a few crackers – OK – a puff pastry mushroom tart, and a goat cheese stuffed mushroom – both kinda eh. When we came out from the movie, we went to Francesca’s and I made one of those bad menu choices – potato gnocchi with a cream based sauce instead of the tomato based artichoke one I was originally considering. When I woke up Saturday morning, I was still a little too full.
Saturday we went to our first movie after the farmers market, but before breakfast. Came home and ate cheese toast and split the bear claw I’d gotten from Stella’s with Mark. In between movies 3 and 4 we came home and I made blue cheese crostini and ate them with leftover briskit baked beans (last week, I cooked the last of bbq briskit with a can of baked beans and a can of cannellini beans). After the last movie we had ice cream, that I still regret.
Today we had rhubarb coffee cake and fruit for breakfast before the first movie – and it was an exceptionally nice and tender one. Trying to use up last year’s rhubarb, since this year’s is already here -thanks to the March heat wave. And there’s a little pork shoulder roast in the oven now with lemon and thyme and garlic and white wine – gonna add some potatoes to the pot in a minute – for us to eat before our last film that doesn’t start until 9:00.
