I bought sushi. Enough for normal people for dinner, but we'll have it as an appetizer.

Then cioppino.

Oh and I'm having roasted salmon with a green sauce, roasted cauliflower and sautéed chard with garlic and lemon. I'll try to remember to post a pic.

What kind of green sauce? I like the sound of your menu.

It's a sauce I made for halloumi but works nicely with fish. It's cilantro, capers, garlic, mustard, olive oil and lemon. It was yummy but I sautéed the chard in cast iron which I find tent to make things a bit grey. #notmyfault

Ceviche with plantain chips, roasted chicken, veggies,salad and of course, rice and beans. Semana Santa is underway and was over for dinner at a Tico family gathering.
Pretty tough for me to keep up with local Spanish sayings, slang, and listening intently to try to understand everything. It's really heartwarming for me to be invited into their home for a family get together, even if that seems a bit sappy to say.

Nothing. I decided to go with intermittent fasting as an effort to lose a few kg. So I will eat breakfast and lunch on work days and stop eating after about 3 PM.

At home I'll eat between 11 and 7.

It remains to be seen whether my lack of willpower will see me classifying soup as "clear fluids" that don't count as food.

Not for dinner but besides making yogurt this morning I was busy baking. I made a lemon pound cake that, while it is moist, I would still only say it is ‘ok’. I also made a banana bran breakfast loaf that is very good.

Romaine ? Living dangerously are you ?

I had a large lunch (tenderloin sandwiches ala Millie's) and will just be having a chilled chef's salad for dinner. Iceberg lettuce with a deep well of cottage cheese in the middle, Got some nice sweet cherry tomatoes, to complement the onions and chopped cucumber, shredded cheese, garlic croutons, and bacon bits, with lots raspberry vinaigrette. Yummy nummy . . .

whole grilled red snapper and black bean and corn salsa. Slice avocado for garnish. I thought about rice or corn tortillas but decided this was enough.

Looks delicious, bundes.

Last night I took frozen chicken thighs out of the freezer and stuck them in the sink to thaw. Then I went to bed, forgetting about them.

Luckily, I woke up in the middle of the night and remembered them, so I went downstairs and put them in the 'fridge. They were pretty much thawed but still very cold. Whew.

Stuck them in a ginger/herbs/sesame marinade all day, then BBQed them. They were delicious. Mr_S said it was one of the best meals ever. (I also made rice pilaf, with sauteed mushrooms and red pepper, and grilled asparagus.)

My salmon turned out great last night! I managed not to overcook it so I'm very proud of myself. However, the menu changed as I forgot to bring my food processor over to my mom's so we couldn't have cauliflower rice. We had roasted cauliflower instead (which is better anyway).

I forgot to take pic until I was most of the way finished.

Oven baked pork back ribs with a hot (sriracha) and sweet (some honey) BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Rays and some other stuff). Making enough to freeze several meals worth of them for reheating later.

Do you think the places all deserved their stars? I think I remember some people saying that the Asian ones are a little easy to get, compared to elsewhere - but I'd certainly take any chance to eat at them!

I guess Michelin stars are funny like that. Obviously they don't review every restaurant and they give out the stars based on dedications to the craft and that kind of thing. These places were all good. The noodles, for example, very good. But when I go to places like Hong Kong, or Japan, I eat tons of good food, and these don't blow me away any more than the next very good place.

I think Tim Ho Wan was the least impressive of the Michelin star places. I'm a Din Tai Fung guy, but my GF likes THW better.
