SATURDAY I ATE

Breakfast: Waffles (from The King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion). Just to clarify, when a recipe says “tsp” that means teaspoon, not the big one… um, and in case you’ve ever wondered, tripling the baking powder and baking soda in a batch of waffles make the dough look like there are hagfish fighting in the bowl. Surprisingly, they didn’t run all over the waffle iron, but they were pretty flabby.

Morning Snack: Apples with peanut butter

LunchSandwiches (leftover chicken)

Afternoon snack:  Chips and Salsa

Dinner:  Yuki Kato’s famous secret flank steak.

Dessert: Mocha Tart. Props to Suzanne for taking it in stride when the tart slid off the seat in transit and got a big divot in it.

Lunch Burrito at Chipotle.

THURSDAY I ATE:

Breakfast: Chocolate croissant at The Beach Monkey Cafe in Pacifica

LunchSandwich from Gherkin’s Sandwich Shop in Montara (big day for eating; OST teambuilding trip). I ordered the “West Coaster” a chicken, bacon, avocado monster. It was really good, but I resisted my natural inclination to skip the sourdough roll and that was a mistake. Sourdough rolls are one of the biggest sandwich fails. The bread tastes great, but it is so much tougher than the filling that it’s impossible to bite without squeezing all the sandwichy goodness out.

Afternoon snack: Coke Zero.

Dinner: Split a BBQ beef sandwich from Costco.

Dessert: More of the doughnut cake.
