I hate it when there's really good salvage and nobody takes the time to wrap it up and stow it, but she did last night. Sometimes we have platters of food left from events and if they're intact I'm often able to call the local soup-kitchen and drop it off. If it isn't enough to take there, or if the timing is wrong I can sometimes take trays of food down to the club where I have my after work beer and set it out for the gang.

I don't think I've ever had pho, is any good? I like ramen noodle soup from proper ramen noodle restaurants, not the packet stuff you lived on at college.

Nice, I just had a bowl of this. I keep a couple of packets in a drawer as they don't need refrigeration. Just add hot water and you're done.

I finished off the candied salmon with a couple of little shots of Wyborowa while cooking spaghetti Alfredo with sausage and mushrooms (a little oregano leaves, a little of the good rosemary). Had a glass of reddo with that baby. I may not want supper tonight, this should be plenty.

Heated up last night's beef pepper mushroom and onion skewers with the extra sausage from breakfast, with a little chili-garlic sauce on the side, hit more than a few spots!

I ate the leftover chicken wings cold and made a dish of very tasty guacamole and had that with crackers, then I mixed myself a double sangria full of fruit and ice in a big old pint glass. I'm calling that dessert.
