Another Day, Another Serving of Food Pics: Artichoke Puree Soup and an Open-Faced Chickpea Spread Sandwich From Rustic Bakery

Chickpea Spread, Artichoke Puree Soup and Iced Tea from Rustic Bakery (2)

I had this open-faced sandwich with a chickpea spread for lunch at Rustic Bakery in Novato yesterday, and that whole top veggie action was dayum good.

Served with a side of pureed artichoke soup, and I washed it down with iced tea.

Those are kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, chives and sprouts on top of the sammy.

The chickpea spread was interestingly tasty. Not quite as smooth as hummus. More chunky and a little citrusy (Meyer lemon, I think), with lots of fresh herbs.

It was nice and filling, which is great because I’m always hungry.

I’m going to try to reverse engineer the sandwich at home, so wish me luck. I’ll need it, because my taste buds, like my vision, ain’t all that.

But I make up for it with my freakishly strong sense of smell! Seriously, if you ever need someone to let you know if your neighbor six doors down is baking brownies, I’m your gal. :)

Next Time You Go to the Cheesecake Factory for Lunch…

Cheesecake Factory Grilled Salmon (2)

Remember this: the grilled salmon on the lunch menu at the Cheesecake Factory.

BOMB.

I remembered my mom-in-law mentioning it, so I ordered it the last time I was there, and it totally hit the spot.

The fish was cooked perfectly and lightly seasoned with herbs, salt and pepper. Simple, but delicious.

It also comes with mashed potatoes and broccoli, but I substituted the potatoes for white rice because fish plus rice equals one happy Karen. :)

You know a meal is good when the food comes out and everyone at the table immediately stops talking because they’re so busy chomping and scarfing it down, LOL! Seriously, you don’t mess with a Filipino girl getting down with some fish and rice. Best to just get out of the way until she’s done, for real.

I HAZ THEM!

It’s too warm to wear these right now (I’ve been living in flip-flops and sandals), but when fall comes, I’m ready.

It’s like the shirt understands me.

Sometimes, you just don’t want to do much with your mop except wash it (maybe) and let it do its thang.

That’s what I’ve been doing lately, and to quote JT, “I’m lovin’ it!”

Is This Tomato Heaven?

Romas and Cherry Tomatoes (2)

My tomato plants are having a moment!

Especially the romas and cherry tomatoes.

It’s like all of them suddenly ripened overnight. BOOM! I’ve got a bumper crop.

I just picked these, and I seriously cannot wait to eat them. :)
