1. tuna salad made with lemon juice, capers and roasted peppers
2. more capers
3. more roasted peppers
4. seeds held together with a little bread
Speaking of tuna; did your mom always refer to it as tunafish? Like one word? Mine either.
You know what isn't nice? Of course you do. Tuna (or tunafish) packed in water. All this time I thought I didn't like it. Then I bought some packed in olive oil. Oh. Yeah. That's better. Here's something else that isn't nice. Making tuna salad in the morning. Tuna salad prior to 9 am is not pleasant, it is not delicious, it is nasty. I don't care what it's packed in. (Unless maybe it's cocaine.) Especially if you don't wash your hands particularly well when you're finished and then get to enjoy the smell of canned fish all the way to work. I suppose you probably wouldn't compulsively sniff your hands the entire commute to see if you could still smell it. Me either.
Also? I love capers.

1. lettuce wraps from Sun Asian
Ever since watching True Grit this weekend all the voices in my head are speaking in that weird stilted contraction-less speaking pattern from the movie's dialogue. This is particularly fun right now because I'm reading The Curlew's Cry (Mildred Walker) about small town life in Montana at the turn of the century. No, really, I love it!

and takin' names!
But please to be noting the lush faux woodgrain awesomeness of my somewhat cleaned off desk. Yes, work was worked.
1. filet slider on a pretzel bun
2. cole slaw

Literally. Flame added to protect the (not so) innocent.
1. teryaki salmon
2. pan roasted teeny potatoes
3. garlicy green beans
I started trying to read a contender for worst book o' the year (Persuading Annie : Melissa Nathan) but gave it up for some Big Love. Next on the pile is The Truth About Forever, teen fiction for the win!
Speaking of Teeny I'm -very- disappointed that the Hendrickson's keep misplacing their second oldest daughter. That child can not be at camp this whole time. Hope Hollis Green didn't get her.
Speaking of Big Love, I'm so sad that it's the last season. Hopefully HBO is working on a new Sunday night series featuring Jewish nuns running a boarding school. That would be sweet!
