The wheels came off a little bit this past week. Whoops.

I hadn’t been to the grocery store for awhile, so it was kinda slim pickings in the pantry/fridge/freezer. However, after poking around a bit, I did stumble across some frozen salmon burgers that were in the back corner of the freezer. I bought these back in December and had completely forgotten that they were in there. I wasn’t too sure about including this in the blog, because it wasn’t meat that I had bought this year… but the point is to chronicle my meat-eating habits, not my meat-purchasing habits, so here it is. I baked the salmon burger and cut it up and made a salmon wrap out of it with a flour tortilla, some melted cheese, arugula, and Frank’s Red Hot. I often have some variation of this for my lunches: flour tortilla + cheese + somethin’. Sometimes the somethin’ is just mustard or Taco Bell sauce. Sometimes it’s fish patties or a pakoras. Sometimes I’ll forgo the cheese and slap some hummus/falafel on there. There are so many options! But they’re all delicious.

We went out for lunch to celebrate the birthday of one of my friends. He wanted sandwiches, so we went to Sarducci’s (one of our favorite sandwich shops). I got a French dip with melty Swiss cheese minus the horse radish (blech!) plus pepperoncinis (yum!). It was kinda chilly out, so the hot sandwich + hot jus combination was perfect.

We had several of our friends over for a pie-themed dinner party. We did it potluck style; everyone was instructed to bring some sort of pie to share. I encouraged some folks to consider bringing savory pies (quiche, pizza, pot pie) instead of just sweet pies (fruity, custardy, etc.) because .
Everything was SO GOOD. I managed to try at least a little bit of every pie. I was very, very full because we ended up with TEN different pies. (I was too busy stuffing myself to take pictures, so these cell phone photos that Stephanie took are the only ones that I have to share.)
-Individual veggie pot pies (made in a muffin tin)
-Individual meaty pot pies
-Frito pie (which consists of taking some Fritos, putting them in a bowl, and then drenching them with chili, cheese, scallions, and bacon)
-Pizza with an olive oil-based? sauce, carmelized red onions, prosciutto, and goat cheese
-Peanut butter and chocolate pie
-Banana cream pie
-Honey pie (with lavender)
-An ice cream pie (with “hot” fudge!)
-Blackberry bramble pie
