I just came from reading the entry of April 16th and I didn't see this question posted, so I thought I would. :-)

Why, thanks Jim. I was just heading over now to create it, and it was there! You are a happy magic elf! =)

I am now off to eat Waffle Crisp cereal for breakfast. And maybe a litlte fruit juice.

On Saturday for lunch I had a chicken fajita burrito with chicken, cheese, black beans, peas, sour cream and greens at my favorite restaurant in Mount Adams (Cincinnati, Ohio), Peterson's. Yummy.

Saturday evening, I had open-faced roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy served over bread. Salad with blue cheese dressing. And from the fruit bar watermelon, cantelope, grapes, fruit cocktail, cherries, cheese and crackers.

On Sunday, I just ate a Big Mac with super-sized fries for supper. . :-)

Friday night - gyros sandwich with french fries from the stand in the Emeryville public market. Saturday - an OK bean-and-cheese tamale from the stand at the Berkeley Farmer's Market, a fantastic pork tamale from La Borinquena in downtown Oakland, and a fantastic ribs-'n-chicken combo from Chef Edwards BBQ, 20th & San Pablo, Oakland. (not much into cooking this weekend - can you tell?) Sunday - because Saturday's BBQ was so good, I got some more - chicken, greens, and potato salad. (Chef Edwards: "You want hot or mild sauce on that?" Me: "Mild, please. I'm just a white boy from Pennsylvania." C.E.: "Is that where you learned about greens, then?") Plus, rice pudding and chocolate cookies smeared with peanut butter. I always pig out when The 10 Commandments is on TV.

Hmm, being that I'm in Florida visitng my mom, the food choices have been heavenly this weekend :)

Thursday evening was airline chicken :P, I'll leave it at that. Friday evening we went out to our favourite restaurant, China Palace. The buffet is great, plus one of the waiters is a Tawaiianese Elvis Impersonator! Eaten: Veggie egg roll, beef chow fun, hot and sour soup, honey garlic chicken. One grumpy point, they discontinued sushi! Florida folks don't know what they're missing. >:(

Saturday, Mom made char siu pork, steamed rice and pea salad. Swoon! This is the reason why I come home :) She also surprised me with a chocolate dobosh cake. This is one of *the* moistest cakes you will find. Very chocolaty, but won't make your teeth fall out. (Talk about love on a plate)

Sunday, pasta with parmeasan chicken, tomatoes, basil and garlic :) Yum! baby spinach salad with raspberry vinegrette and garlic bread.

I know what you mean about pigging out while watching the 10 Commandments! My dad and I used to break out the oreos and vanilla ice cream, or we'd eat whatever dessert Mom made for Easter dinner. :)

Let's see: Friday evening I had garlic bread, a frosted mocha, and tiramisu at Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park.

Saturday I had Campbell's Chunky Sirloin Burger soup for lunch, and hamburger, fries and a shake at Taxi's in Palo Alto for dinner.

Sunday I had two McDonald's sausage biscuits (food of the gods!) for breakfast, and then played Ultimate Frisbee for two hours. I had some way overpriced buffalo wings and a large Coke at the Giants rainout in the late afternoon, and then Chinese food (pork strips, sizzling beef, and orange chicken) for dinner.

Why yes, I am a carnivore; why do you ask?
