I made Bobby a treat for lunch today. It’s based on some Cuban sandwich that he used to have in Miami a lot.
- 1 sesame seed bagel, buttered
- marinated beef (thin thin slices) from Han Kook
- heirloom tomato slices
- crunchy pita chips and a crumbled veggie cracker
I made myself a huge juice, which I think tasted just as good. Or better!
- 1 large cucumber
- celery (a little more than pictured)
- 1/2 granny smith apple
- 1/2 lemon
- large knob of ginger
This was my biggest juice yet – it almost overflowed towards the end.
Tonight we’re going over to our cousins’ new place for dinner. They just bought a new place and they’re cooking (salmon). We’re bringing a big raw salad. I think I’ll make one of my favorite raw salads with liquid gold elixir.
This morning we went to the farmers’ market towards the end – and got 5 pounds of heirloom tomatoes for $1/pound. We also got some grapes ($1/pound). The farmers’ market is really beautiful, but in general it’s overpriced. In general, it’s more expensive than Whole Foods. I only buy things when I can get a deal towards the closing of the market. It’s frustrating; I want to support local farmers directly, but it’s easier and cheaper to just go to Whole Foods if I want to go oraganic/local.
- salmon – first recorded around 1205. this word comes from Old French (salmun), which was from Latin (salmonem). it might have originally meant “leaper” – the word for “to leap” was salire in Latin. it replaced the Old English word læx – which actually kind of stayed around… as lox!
I’m off to read some more. I did just get The Hot Zone (a terrifying true story about ebola, by Richard Preston – I read his other book the other week) from the library and I kind of want to break into that… but I’m already in the middle of about 5 other books so I should probably finish them first. Or not
