Domestic Shocker: Woman’s Lunch Does Not Coordinate

For my lunch today, I’m enjoying a pair of toast — oat and honey sandwich bread — dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, with a chunk of edam cheese and a mug of instant miso soup.

Hey! Where did everybody go?

Better not tell them about how much you enjoyed the salsa you spread on your potato pancakes the other night.

    Interesting and semi-healthy sounding lunch. I had veg Lo Mein today.

    Ketchup on your pancake-pancakes, Goodbear? Eew. I hope you slathered her next hot dog with maple syrup and whipped cream.

    It’s actually in the spirit of using up the condiments, S. Le. It’s bound to get worse. But tonight there’ll be a bok choy and shrimp stirfry to finish off the oyster sauce, and maybe some nice imperial rolls (bought frozen) to devour some more of my sister-in-law’s amazing homemade plum sauce.

  4. Hmm, hot dog and maple syrup … hmmmmm …

  5. All those things sound good, separately. So, why not put them together and enjoy them as you did?

    Not quite, Dennis, is it?

    They were good, actually, Urban Thought. Partly this entry is an in-joke for E.g., who is much fussier than I am about getting her clothes to coordinate, but who loves a pot-luck dinner or smorgasbord or buffet as much as anyone.

    Salsa on potato pancakes? Totally! Oat and honey bread without peanut butter? What the…!?

  8. lavenderbay says:

    I’m almost through an entire 1-kg jar of peanut butter that was started only two weeks ago, Alyson. Please forgive me for not having it for lunch as well?

    My dad always reminded us it all gets mixed together in your stomach anyway…

    So did mine!!! “It all goes down the same pipe,” he’d say.
