Because it's just before lunch and I'm hungry.
  • Honey-roasted turkey breast with avocado, tomato, mayo and lettuce.
  • Refried spaghetti. Fry the noodles a bit in olive oil before adding the sauce for a better texture.
  • Reuben with light Swiss, ultra-thin sliced brisket, homemade 1000 Island dressing, grilled to perfection on Jewish rye.
  • Loaded oatmeal. Frozen cherries and blueberries (thawed), chopped walnuts, cinnamon, vanilla and a dab of butter.
  • Steak Diane, medium rare with a mushroom-onion cream sauce. NSA used to make it, haven't had this in ages.
  • Grilled asparagus with homemade hollandaise. Full of fat and cholesterol, but incredibly tasty.
  • Raspberry-cream cheese anything, actually, just cream cheese anything pretty much.
  • Pan-roasted Chilean sea bass with chili-peanut sauce. Conscience won't let me eat it any more because Chilean sea bass has been severely overfished.
  • Hot & Sour soup from Pick-Up Stix. Loaded with chicken, shrimp and tofu, the perfect blend of spice and tart. I've tried other local restaurants, none of them measure up. I also tried to make it myself, with disappointing results.
  • Swedish pancakes with lingonberry jam and sour cream. Also, crepes with carmelized bananas and whipped cream, and ricotta-stuffed blini.

Not a complete list by far, but a decent start.
