Yesterday, while on our shopping adventure, we stopped to get lunch in the mall
This was necessary as I had the distinct feeling while in Sephora of “Wow. I might pass out right now. Well, my phone is in my pocket, so they’ll be able to find the fiance”
Thanks blood sugar, thanks. I suppose that’s what I get for having a tartlet for breakfast huh?
Did you know if you ask nicely at Panda Express they’ll give you half rice/noodles, and half veggies? It’s great if you’re me and crave veggies but love the carbs.
Then, because cooking at home would be a cost saving measure and we were shopping all day, we hit up our old hood for some dinner.
Sal’s was one of our favorite places in Northwest. That might have something to do with the fact that our first visit there we discovered we’d come on half price wine night.
They give you wonderful bread. Mmmm bread.
(that clearly means I ate a LOT of bread. Whoops)
My tummy was not, however, too full for wine
I ordered chicken with veggies, cause warm roast chicken sounded so good
And got this
In high school for a while I worked at the mall. The mall closed at 7 on Sundays, and I worked closing most Sundays. By the time we got the store cleaned up, closed, and I got home, it was a big past when my family ate dinner.
But my daddy would make me little “Kalin meals” that involved baking up chicken and veggies and deliciousness in some sort of broth or sauce every week.
This tasted just like one of those.
Which made it pretty much the best dinner ever.
I’ve been packing and cleaning like crazy today, so I’ve only got one food photo to show you
So, let’s share a family food memory! What was something that your family would make special for you?
