Captain’s Log 5, 806
I went out to dinner last night with Friend Pam to thank her for taking care of my house while I was gone. She suggested a new place called Pieology. It’s kind of like a Subway restaurant only you build a pizza instead of a sandwich. It was fascinating. And it was delicious!
Really hot ovens make quick work of your order. Yummithy!
I like simple food. I had a pie with Parmesan and mozzarella cheese and fresh basil. Super thin crust brushed with olive oil. Holy mommacita! I ate half. Will finish it tonight.
I tried out my new Nutri Bullet again this morning. I made an orange juice and banana smoothie (with a packet of Emergen C added which made it foam like a volcano and me laugh out loud). Then, I wanted to see what would happen if I blasted up three compari tomatoes. It turned out pink and delicious! I added some salt and pepper and called it gazpacho. The road to becoming a gourmet cook is a really long one for me, and today I took the first step. I ate pulverized tomatoes for breakfast and gave it a fancy name. I think that’s what gourmets do. They cook something simple and then drizzle stuff over the top. Voila! Gourmet!
We had a potluck at the museum yesterday to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day and someone’s birthday. Since most of my staff is Mexican, the food was fit for a fiesta! My favorite was a salad made from the nopal cactus. It was amazing! There was also a warm dip made from poblano chiles, corn, and sweet cream. Holy shit I almost swooned.
The strips that look like green beans are pieces of cactus.
Off to work again. Dreaming of going somewhere. I need to be a travel writer.
