Yesterday there were more than the usual elements to the day’s food. Diane and I had a Garden City Day: brekky, lunch and a movie.
We started off with a ham and cheese croissant at Croissant Express. It is usually something to anticipate but yesterday, not only was it he hated too fast but their normally excellent, flaky croissants were bakery dough rather than being flaky.
Unfortunately lunch was off too: the normally anticipated Dim Sum train with its collection of delicious delicacies was underwhelming this time. We took the same things off the conveyor but they tasted old. Maybe because it was Monday and they were the leftovers, a new chef–who knows, ?
That night I fixed a simple meal: broiled salmon pieces with sauteed potatoes and a green salad.
The salmon pieces were simply brushed with olive oil and placed under the grill; the potatoes were par boiled then fried with smoked paprika and a little garlic salt; simple yet delicious as only grilled salmon can be.
As a beverage, we finished off the remainder of the Spanish Rioja from the previous night.
