even though i hate chinese food we had pf changs for lunch. it was delicious too. i kinda like the taste of some chinese food i am just always terrified i am going to get a cig butt in my food cause of what happened to chevy or i am afraid i am going to get hepatitis cause of what happened to me.

so after all the complaining, i happily ate every bite of my meal then reached to get my fortune cookie. the big boss of my group demanded i trade with him. his said something like "you are a genius and are going to get a promotion." mine said (and i quote) "a cheerful letter or message is on its way to you." this is a bs fortune cause it is christmas time so everyone is getting millions of cheerful emails and christmas cards.

i complained so much that we decided to do it again. his said something like "you will be the smartest person int he room at all times." mine said (and i quote) "you can always trust your friends." another bogus fortune.

and yes, i ate both of them.
yesterday i had my own homemade chili! i put 3 tablespoons of chili powder along with green peppers, onion, kidney beans and a can of tomoatoes.

Today I ate at a place called "the market" in Larimer square. It's kinda like a grocery store/restaurant, it's very european in that way (see picture below). I had the jubalaya pie and although it was good my stomach has been rumbling ever since. nothing has happened yet but i'm afraid that when it does, it's gonna be bad.

i went with casey my lead guitarist to the elephant bar. it was a good lunch because i was pretty much done with work so i had a couple pints of pale ale and casey had a couple pints of bass. beers at lunch mid-week is always a good thing in my humble opinion. elephant bar has a kind of south-pacific menu. lotta fish and salads and seafood but they also have other stuff. i had the fried shrimp po' boy and they pretty much doused the thing with tartar, which was not the bomb. i wanted a shrimp po' boy, not a tartar sandwich. the fries were mediocre and too soggy.

i ate at fatburger for the first time today, even though it's a las vegas classic. i think they call it "fatburger" cuz one of the first things they ask you is: would you like chili, bacon, cheese, or egg on your fatburger today? my reply to that query was a resounding "no" but don't think i didn't play with the idea of eating such a scrumptious burger just to experience a party in my mouth with everyone invited. the burger was good and the onion rings melted in my mouth. all in all a good lunch.
Today was our company xmas lunch. I signed up to bring the mac and cheese. I didn’t b/c yesterday was too shitty and I didn’t get to the store. ( my hangover was also a factor). So today when my boss came and picked me up I made him go to the ham place ( cos I had to get the ham anyway) and I got potatoes au gratin and stuffing. Everything else was in the casserole variety or pie. I managed to control myself and only have 3 deviled eggs.

we went to red robin today and i got the 5 alarm burger which includes pepperjack chz, jalepenos, salsa, and chipotle mayo. it's good and one thing i really like about the dirty bird industries is the bottomless steak fries, although i never get through my original basket. it's just the idea that's appealing to me.

i had hot and sour soup ... my favorite soup in the world. i wish i could make it as good as a chinese restaurant! anyhoo, i also had crab puffs and sweet and sour pork but i didn't eat all of it and the boy got to eat my leftovers. i'm such a wonderful wife2be ... right ?

I got the taco salad from Wendy's. Not surprisingly the meat was sorta sick. But I ate the whole thing in 80 seconds anyway. Also I had a pack of those fucking hot and spicy peanuts.

today i went to Jimm John's and got a Big John Sub. The sandwhich was good (not scrumpy) but the bread was great. my office will be moving next week. this should open up a whole new world in lunch options for me.
today being a half-day at work, i went to lunch at il vicino's with the roomie and another friend. they both got the pesto panini chicken sandwich, which is what i normally get and includes chopped grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, onion, and a delectible pesto spread. this time though i had the capicola ham and turkey sandwich with a side caesar. il vicino's caesar salads are quite the bomb because the caesar dressing is made the real way with anchovies and they even throw on a little anchovie on top. i don't eat the anchovies though.

I went to lunch with a client/friend today. They have that bread that you stick in the herbed olive oil. I only sort of like it but I always eat it as tho it's my last meal. Anyway I got linguine, chicken, mushrooms and artichokes in a lemon taragon cream sauce. It was major delish, but I ate too much and now I feel like a grease ball. God knows I need a cream sauce like a hole in my head.

i went with my monthly pr group to mcmenamins and had the best roast beef sandwich covered in sauted onions on the best bread EVER. if you're ever in the pacific northwest you'll have to try mcmenamins!

today i went to q'doba with a couple coworkers. q'doba's pretty much like chipotle, but i still say it tastes better. i used to get the vegetarian burrito, not because i'm a vegetarian (which i'm not) but because it's quite delish (not meaning to sound too much like chevy valentine et al). i don't get the vegetarian burrito anymore though, since i discovered the magical magnificently modest chicken quesadillas. these are quite possible the most bomb-ass quesadillas i've had anywhere. i think quesadilla-making is underrated. i also splurged and got a damn chocolate chip cookie. it's getting harder and harder for me to resist getting sweets.
