100 Happy Days: Fried Egg Sandwich

I love fried egg sandwiches.

Lately, I like adding shiitake mushrooms and avocado.
While I was in the newsroom, hubby sliced mushrooms.

It was a pleasure to fry mushrooms and eggs. Then I assembled my little sandwich over garlic sourdough slices.

Finally, eating in front of the TV. Bliss.

100 Happy Days: Food Trucks

It’s been too long.

I zipped over to Moveable Feast in Willow Glen for my dinner break.

I met Bruce Wayne while waiting for my kimchi fried rice burrito from BBQ Kalbi. Cute pooch!

Then I headed back to the newsroom with this huge, spicy burrito.

100 Happy Days: Clean Eating

Under one of the tents at Serramonte, one worker weighed my zucchini. I paid him. Then he counted out change.
“Thank you,” I chimed.
“See you next week,” he replied.

Cherry Tomatoes

Vendors at the Daly City Farmers Market are starting to remember me.

Our Peru trip is just around the corner. We spent April and May indulging in food and drinks. It feels like a lovely time to give my body a break with clean eating.
After my market trip, I made roasted zucchini and tomatoes with whole wheat linguini. I modified a recipe by Martha Stewart. I left out the salt, olive oil and cheese. I added chopped olives. I served it with salmon, grilled on cedar planks. My hubby left out salt and pepper on the fish. It tasted yummy!

Overall – not bad.
Mark liked it for dinner.

Got to play with. My new Hello Kitty ball at Sea Bowl in Pacifica.


It took me two games to warm-up. I played as “Kitty.” Mark was “Doggy.”

After our third game…
One player nearby hooted: “Kitty kicked doggy’s butt!”

100 Happy Days: Almost Barefoot in the Kitchen

Hubby made dinner. Such a pleasure after a long day at work.


He made Cuban beans and brown rice. He added ground turkey and plantains. It was tasty.


Then we watched the Prisoner.
Bliss on my Friday night.
