Paneer butter masala (pieces of homemade cheese in a spicy gravy), chana saag (chickpeas and spinach curry), rice, and gulab jamun (Indian donuts soaked in warm honey....that's right, completely SOAKED, not just glazed on the outside) from a curry house near work

I was underways and grabbed a "Johanna" at the next bigger city's central-station. I didn't know it and it's DELICIOUS!! :)

It's a fruity crumbles-snail. I though about the name, five minutes long. Aaah, it's because of the red Johannis berries (red currants)! ;)

I picked approx 100 fresh figs this morning. So we sliced a few and put them on whole wheat french bread slices with Sicilian Jack cheese and made some toasted bruschetta for lunch.

Now, I'm making a batch of fig preserves with chopped jalapeno & ginger.

There's another basket full on the counter for other figgy snacks.
And there will be more figs to pick on Sunday!

I've got one of those weeks coming up: you know, the ones where you don't have time to prepare and eat a decent breakfast so you don't eat, and then somehow it is 4PM before you look up to see if it is lunch time yet, and when you finally leave the office at 7PM (or 8, or 9, or worse), you wind up eating whatever dreck is nearest the check-out counter at the closest convenience store?

Happens too often. Tomorrow night, I'll grab a pizza from my favorite pizza joint and throw it in the refrigerator when I get home. I can nuke a slice in the morning while coffee is brewing, and eat on the drive to work.

Lunches will be one of the bags of mixed walnuts and sun-dried tomatos I bagged up tonight and will stash in my desk tomorrow, along with some green tea.

I'm pretty sure my Mrs. Sears, my first-grade teacher, wouldn't have approved, but it is closer to her idealized "balanced diet" than a handful of Skittles, a Snickers bar, and some yuppie-sea-salted-potato-chips-fried-in-olive oil. (Coffee, of course, will remain a constant fixture of either course of action.)
