I mentioned before that Thursday is “Lunch with Dad Day”. We didn’t get to go to lunch last week because he was out of town. But he’s back this week and left me a voicemail the morning of “Mo, Lunch today with ur old man?” I called back, “Most Definitely, Dad”. Because it just so happens that I left my brekkie home.
Good thing there is a cafeteria in the building (AKA the Roach Coach). I kept it safe and had the yellowest banana they had (it was still a lil green) and a tangerine with a cup of watered down coffee. Better than nothing. But this left me famished for lunch!
The venue today is Spaghetti Western (downtown Manhattan) and they get pretty crowded during lunch. Word on the street is their new head chef was a sous chef at a 5 star restaurant. I beleive that…
I had 2 pieces of bread. *blushes*
I ordered the Country Salad. Their salads run between $10 or $13 dollars but they are HUGE!
See? Gi-Normous! It was tasty! It was served with an array of greens (raddiccio, argula, romaine, bibb, mesclin, etc.), grilled chicken, gorgonzola cheese, procuitto and a balsamic glaze. OMG. I live for Spaghetti Western Salads!
Then Mom asked me to take a pic of her with her lunch.
Hi mom! Mom got the Margherita Pizza. It had a delicious marinara sauce and fresh mozzarella baked onto a thick and cripsy crust. It was sprinkled with fresh basil. Mom was sneaky in offering me a slice of pizza- when i accepted she asked for some salad. DANG Ma, you got me! We liked our lunches very much!
Then I took a pic of Dad’s lunch. He got the Pizza Bianco. Essentially a WHITE Pizza with ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and garlic with fesh basil on top.
“Hey! You took a bite before I could get a pic of it!”
Dad really liked it… apparently he needed to take a bite before I snapped a pic of it. When I asked “How is it dad?” he just nodded his head while his eyes nearly came out of their sockets. I think that means “This is good”.
Work was hectic as all hell and I didn’t get to post much. When I got home my boyfriend called to see how I was and I was beyond frustrated at work so he surprised me with dinner.
How did he know I was craving sushi???
He got pad thai and he let me taste it. It was pretty good! And a total surprise.
If anyone was wondering, I am going to keep him. He totally flipped my day in a good way!
