What I Ate Yesterday
Really boring eating day. For lunch, I ordered a spinach and bacon omelette from the diner. When ordering, I thought the woman said 'no cheese, right?', to which I responded 'yeah'. Well, apparently there was a miscommunication because my omelette ended up having AMERICAN cheese on it. This made me doubly annoyed in that I a) did not want cheese on my omelette at all and b) if I had wanted cheese, it most certainly would have been cheddar. I am not a big fan of American cheese, as it is usually just cheese food product and not actual cheese at all. Actual deli sliced American cheese can be pretty tasty, especially the white variety, but usually people substitute cheese food product slices, or singles, for American. Because of this, I avoid American cheese altogether. However, I will eat it on a backyard bbq burger if I have no other alternatives.
Late afternoon I went to Balducci's (8th Avenue and 14th Street) and bought some salad greens, new potatoes and about a quarter pound of shrimp salad. I ended up eating all of the shrimp salad as a snack around 6:00p. It was quite tasty and not too expensive either.
For dinner, Big Eli stopped by and we ended up getting take-out from Great Neck. We each got a beef with Chinese broccoli over rice (a great deal at $3.50) and split half a pound of roast pork. I gave some of my Chinese broccoli to Eli because I was getting tired of eating vegetables. I was hoping that he would give me some of his beef in return, but no dice!
Like I said, not a very exciting eating day.
