25 IV 06, Tuesday

Yeah I'm same-day food reporting

3 cups of coffee
1 bowl of plain yogurt, with blueberries, sliced banana, and honey drizzled on top
1 tumbler of "some pulp" Tropicana oj

1 small coffee, from Crazy Mocha

Sandwich: whole grain bread, whole grain grey poupon mustard, spinach, and tavern ham.
1 orange
I'd never had tavern ham before. It's very tasty. Thank you Whole Foods, for this new experience!

Actually, this leads to an anecdote that when I was at Whole Foods yesterday, buying tavern ham at the prepared food counter, I also ordered some "forbidden tropical rice" for my mother. The lady behind the counter, an older black woman, and I had a brief, somewhat playful (but not flirtatious) conversation about forbidden rice. Charming! She also approved of my purchasing some of the black forest bread pudding.

2 slices of tuscan loaf
homemade hummus (drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with some sweet paprika)

defrosted lasagna, made by my mother. My mom is a really really good lasagna cook. Her secret? She follows the recipe on the box, and uses a sauce that contains mushrooms and olives.
another slice of tuscan loaf

The remainder of the black forest bread pudding

Yes, I did use the verb "to drizzle" twice in this posting. I challenge foodfriends to come up with a synonym that is appropriate for olive oil (not necessarily appropriate for honey).

what is "tavern ham"?

One may decant, pour, serve, apply, add, include, mix in, spread, spray, splash, lube up, toss on, or use olive oil, last time I checked. It sounds like you drizzled or splashed olive oil. Did you splash? Is that what happened?

Sorry, I was confused when I wrote that. The answer is "spoodged" or "cummed." I think that you cummed some olive oil onto your food.

Not sure what tavern ham is. Or rather, I'm not sure what makes ham "tavern".

I think dribbled is a good synonym. Maybe. It sounds a bit juvenile, though.
