the march continues, 4/17

matzah pbj - the aforementioned staple of my passover diet.
1 cup oj
1 cup coffee +skim +sugar (we're out of splenda)

Europa Cafe
i've had nothing but mixed results from this purveyor of made-to-order salads and yet I keep going back, like some kind of chump. here is a breakdown of what I ordered versus what I received and reluctantly consumed.

ordered: 1 large spinach salad with chicken, feta, almonds, avocado, diced tomato, and lemon-herb vinaigrette

received and reluctantly consumed: 1 small (?!) romaine salad with tandoori chicken (?!), feta, almonds, VERY LITTLE avocado, gross really big chunks of tomato, and lemon-herb vinaigrette

i called to complain and they said they'd give me a free salad. on the one hand i'm happy about this but on the other i'm tired of skulking back into their embrace. do any of the AC foodfriends know of a good salad-to-order place in our area?

Zen Palate
like the sephardic jews whose traditions allow them to get away with this without feeling guilty, rice has become the staple of my passover diet.
1 sweet and sour sensation w/brown rice
2 taro spring rolls (i figure if i'm eating rice, a roll wrapped in rice paper is a-ok)
1 tea's jasmine green tea (these are delicious)

hot chocolate
ciao bella vanilla gelato
ciao bella dulce de leche gelato
ciao bella mango sorbet

i ate quite a bit of ice cream.

edit: i just realized that i called both matzah pbj and rice the "staple of my passover diet." let me resolve this apparent contradiction: there are two staples of my passover diet.

I like the image of Dubs skulking back into the arms of a made-to-order salad place.

Not sure if NYC is sophisticated enough for this, but Sebastian's in Boston has just wonderful made-to-order salads.
