February the twenty-third

* six or sevan spoonfuls of plain yogurt with honey and banannas (hat tip to mmw for this delicious day starter)
* one hardboiled egg
* one half sesame seed bagel with plain cream cheese
* one cup Earl Grey tea

Lunch (Fortune House - Van Nuys, CA)
* one-half golden wing - this is a chicken wing that has had the bones removed so spiced ground chicken can be stuffed into it. Yes, it is chicken stuffed chicken and it is magnificent
* one vegetable spring roll with peanut sauce
* one cup egg drop soup
* one chicken babycorn lunch special
The food the fortune house is not fantastic, but it has the advantage of being almost free

* one cup of coffee
* one Little Debbie oatmeal cream pie
* several pieces of Trader Joes dried mango

Dinner (Campanile - Los Angeles, CA)
I went for their Thursday grilled cheese night
* One Kettle One martini
* Cauilflower soup with a dollop of cream
* Croque Madame - grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a fried egg on top
* field greens
* one-fourth a strawberry shortcake
* one espresso
The building is sweet (Angelinos know it as Charlie Chaplain's former production offices). You're paying for ambiance so the experience is a bit overpriced if you're just getting grilled cheese.

Post-dinner (Club 331)
* One tumbler Dalwhinnie

It appears that I eat about twice as much as any other food friend.

Do you prefer tea to coffee?

I think a really tannic black tea is great for a hangover.

I like to take my coffee black but I don't like the taste of most coffees. (One notable exception is Trader Joe's Hazelnut Creme) For example, I think Starbucks tastes too burnt so end up having to add milk and sugar. However I'd rather drink almost any tea that coffee with milk and sugar.

Is Tannic a brand or a type of tea?
