such a great meal on robson today.  haven't been downtown in a while.  we also managed to score some free soda on burrard and georgia today.  ha ha! kind of craving kalamata...

our waitress was nice.

our order:
greek salad x 2- tomatoes (1)
pita + balsamic (overwhelmed by the olive oil)(-)
the vegetarian platter: moussaka, spanakopita, roasted potatoes, rice pilaf, tzatziki
dolmades platter-dolmades with roasted potatoes, rice pilaf and tzatziki

it was yummy, and we were hungry.  sangria sangria sangria! 

T.E.D. talks inspired this meal

southwest breakfast burritos : whole wheat shell, soy meat, avocado, whole corn, jalapeno pepper, red pepper, orange pepper, onion, egg, hot sauce= yum

yam + yellow potato + red onion hashbrowns = too salty, i need to learn to control salt and spice.  they were almost unedible.  :(

i think i'm going out for dinner tonight!

grilled cheese truck

grilled cheese: cream cheese, hot red pepper, jalapeno pepper, mozza cheese, cheddar, spinach, chili flakes on rye bread = easy and yum.  i need a grill.

victoria day dinner. full tummies.

trying out some new recipes.  experienced some stressful failure, but overall was happy with the outcome of the meal.

cranberry olive bread with homemade garlic butter (paprika, chili, parm)
spicy bean salad served cold
vegetarian sweet and sour meat(?)balls - had some trouble but tasted quite good.  Should of used croutons rather than freshish bread crumbs.  martha stewart said i had options. 
fresh pesto + toasted almond vermicelli

no money. home cooking? food envy.

had a very unfortunate weekend, but only because of the lack of dining.  however, managed to whip up a pretty fine steak for a friend.  the second steak i've ever prepared.  lime+chili+ black pepper marinade.  apparently it wasn't too shabby. + pasta (meh)  but what isn't good with whiskey.  anybody want to take me to dinner tomorrow? brunch even?  please? your treat?

comfortable.  clean food.  huge array of beer choices - $9 + which wasn't logical today.  perfect late lunch. we ate outside, but the inside is classy-ass. wallet now empty.  worth it. wanted to scream at stomache, 'make more roooooom." cleaned our plates (almost) mmm.

our order:
homemade bbq chips - (++++)
roasted tomato soup (do it! although john said it tasted like pasta sauce.)
arancini w. lime, sesame, and a sweet chili reduction
pulled chicken sandwhich (j said it was the best he's ever had!)
