I will now…. Essen Sie “Kleinkindbetreuung am Mittwoch” (German)

Boys and Girls, how about eating lunch with this blog writer? What’s for today?

Lets GO BACK to that place we were just at on Monday. You know, that “MORE THAN HALF GROCERY STORE PLACE” that you’ve read about before. We like that, don’t we? Now, how am I getting you over there today?

Driving? No… I still can’t do that right now! Not after BRAIN SURGERY! (duh…)
Walking? hahaha….
Hitchhiking? Guess that could maybe work. But…. naaaaa….

We are going to get in the vehicle of the “visiting cousin” and take the ride over there.

Once we’ve gotten there, what’s for lunch?

Grilled Peach Apricot Slaw. This was…good. Lets see, what’s it have in it? Peaches. Apricots. Red Onions. Green Cabbage. Carrots. Green Onions. Mint..? (mint in slaw… that reads good). Pecans. Grilled Peach and Apricot Slaw Dressing (that last word is a verb, right?), yada yada… There’s other things that are within the other things… Cage-Free Egg Yolks in the Mayonnaise (well it’s a good thing all the yokes are in the inside, and we don’t have to listen to them.).

To Drink…

Iced Bhakti Chai Almond Blend. The front says “Fresh Pressed Ginger. FIERY Masala Spices. Low Sugar.” Fiery = Fire. Hmmmm…. Interesting. What’s on the back? Gluten-Free. Vegan (no animal products? Uh, ok), Low-Fat (at least it doesn’t sit higher), Dairy-Free (No Charge!), Soy-Free (That doesn’t cost anything either!)… INGREDIENTS: Here’s some interesting ones: Organic Fair Trade Black Tea (Hmm… Eh, I could just type forever on that one, but I wouldn’t know if it is a “fair trade” for “White Tea”), Organic Ginger Juice, Evaporated Cane Juice. (evaporated in the air?), Almondmilk (that has its own ingredients: Filtered Water & Almonds. That’s interesting.) and Spices…..  (they got tired of typing)


Berry Chantilly Cake Slice. 7 oz.   PLEASE SEE SIGN FOR INGREDIENTS. Ok… These ingredients and “Unit Price” stuff was on the bottom. Can’t turn it over while or before you’re eating. It’ll make a mess. Just have to feel lucky for eating it, but then you learn you have to read a sign. Huh. That’s not cool. — Anyway…. That ONE piece of cake is $3.99. It is $9.12 per pound! Dang…. Well… Any piece of cake is never all that heavy.

Took quite awhile to drink all that Iced Bhakti Chai Almond Blend being that it was sooo FIERY (smoke out the nose). Took forever to drink all that. I wasn’t going to just stop. I have to do my job of eating/drinking to do COMPLETE testing so I can blog about it. (Yeah. That’s it.) Still Freaking Hot till the end, but I made it. 🙂

Lunch was purely interesting.

It is “Ponedeljak” for us all again… (Bosnian)

What is happening on Moon-Day?

Anyone knowing the answer to this elementary question?

Yep, it is time to write an online journal about the visit of the “thinking brain” person. That’s a good definition/answer. That will somehow work.

O-tay. Started the visit with the Psych-lady and this is one of those “lengthily drawn-out discussions” of where to eat at.

Psych-Lady: “Where you want to go?”
I respond: “I don’t care, where do you want to go?”
Psych-Lady: “Well, we are not going to do any deadly walking down the street in the heat.”
I respond: “Uh, okay. You’re driving and it’s (obviously) your choice. WHERE ARE WE GOING?”

We go outside into the heat and into her vehicle. A quick right-turn and then “skidding” through a swift “U-ee turn”. Errrrrrrrrrrr…….. The wheels straighten out and swiftly move forward again toward the usual…. Special Grocery Store Place. (Trust Me. I have just relaxed about this so-called “brain” of mine and the non-remembrance of the Name Of Things that it has selected to do.)

BRAIN: “Oh, that’s worth filing away to remember. That one… eh, just toss that one out. Someone else’s brain can just try and catch it.”

Ok. We get to our normal Blah-Blah location. I have chosen a collection of foods that I haven’t eaten previously, just to be a precarious living individual. Now, boys and girls, we shall enjoy the descriptions to each of the foods.

Tuna with Cranberries – This is made of: Canola Mayonnaise. Water (that’s a good one). Da da da…. Egg Yolks. Honey. SEA SALT (That REALLY good one, trust me). Lemon Juice. Yellow Onions. Sugar. Salt. Wait…. It has Salt? It already said “Sea Salt” and now it says “Salt”?? Wha??
Buffalo Chicken SaladChicken. Chicken Breast (Ahhh… okay). Buffalo Chicken Salad Dressing. (A buffalo-type chicken getting dressed as a salad?), Ranch Dressing (So, naked things getting dressed?), Frank’s Hot Sauce (Yo, Frank, can I have some?), Worcestershire Sauce (not even trying to say that one as fast as I can), wada-wada…. and a few more vegetables.


Black Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Coffee – Finally! Finnaly! I found a drink that I wouldn’t have to worry about being incorrectly drinking. I finally remembered to read a drink before drinking! This time I DON’T HAVE TO SHAKE IT!

AAAAaaaaaarrrggggg!!!!! It didn’t taste too bad. Did this brain of mine thinks it was good enough to use space within itself to correctly remember and describe the details of its flavor? No. But, it wasn’t bad.

Skidded the vehicle around and made it back to the office building when we finished eating and speaking.

Okay. I’m warning right now:
This Psych-Lady is telling me that she is “refusing” to see me next week. Why? She has “Made Up Better Things To Do.” So, knock this off the list of things to blog about next week. Which is fine… I had plans to advise her that I could not connect too, but she beat me to it.

“Did you write in your blog tonight?”

Phew… Today was a busy day. Was it a lucky day with it being busy?

What was that first thing I did today? Uh… um… Oh, yeah. Lucky enough to have that good friend drive the both of us to pick up fancy and expensive drinks from that place with the drive thru (Heck no! That is not how we order drinks! We go inside! ). You know, Starbucks.

The usual family meal of eating was an outstanding lunch thoroughly enjoyed together. Oh, the dish that is worth the effort of eating is the one enjoyed with cheese and noodles. You know, Homemade Mac & Cheese. Mmmm….

Last thing enjoyed on this nice day was the lucky opportunity to watch a baseball game that my good friend’s young male descendant is on the team. This was enjoyable by all.  The weather in the sky was enjoyable, too.

This was a good day. I was told that I only needed to “wait” one more day. Then there will be the day of the beginning of something good? We will have to wait…

Have we comforted ourselves with the repeats of Maandag (Dutch)?

What happens on this day? …… Bueller? …… Bueller?

(Ok, if you refuse to look up the definition of that word in the title, then that’s just….. sad.)

I arose this morning and really had to intellectualize about the day and remember what was going on.

FIRST: Opening my eyes, and thinking (is that ACTUALLY what I do?)…

What day is this? ….. (this took awhile to think about. Let me think other thoughts to answer that one.)

I have a company of people coming to stay at my house tomorrow (my breathing heavily…).  (this is true, but what is today and what do I need to do now…. like, this morning?)

Oh, oh…. it’s that… that Moonday lady. That Psych-ee Person.

Ms. Psych Lady was EVEN MORE in the need of going to eat lunch than LAST WEEK. I showed up about 20 minutes early and picked up the waiting-room phone to “check in”. (This “usually” consists of me dialing her office, leaving a message and then her questioning in her head if it’s actually necessary for her to get rid of the current patient). BUT TODAY WAS DIFFERENT! I absolutely dial the phone to delightfully inform her machine, but this phone was actually answered automatically! (Gasp!)

She asks, “Are we ready to go? Have you decided where we are going??

“My answers to those questions are…. YES and YESSS…”

Out the door. On our way… To WHOLE FOODS for the “first time” this week. Did she easily convince me that eating at this location (like last week) was a good idea? I guess so because I had no argumentative way of riding in the passenger seat this week. Nicely turned the corner from the beginning location and arrived after a very short commute.

SECOND: What was chosen to eat today? (Let me look at my pictures I took with my phone I will describe them in detail….)

NOW. The Very First Thing that I want to bring to your attention is that I had chosen an area within the store and was unable leave quickly for one of two reasons. It would either be my inability to choose from the large selection, or just enjoying the conversation between myself and this lady helping me. Could be both, but never the less, lets move forward with food chosen from that area…

  • First Selection:  I had a tuna sandwich on a French Bread bun. Very tasty and many “pieces” of things that appear in tuna sandwiched together. Delightfully tasteful. (those are so good, usable words…. Uh, yeah…)
  • Second Selection:  Broccoli Crunch. Tasty Broccoli in a clear and plastic bowl. Broccoli. Yep. That’s about it, folks. Broccoli. Not bad. Not bad at all. Eaten and enjoyed.
  • Third Selection:  Tiramisu. Ahhhh.. Good and tasty. Good enough to remember what the heck it was just because after finding the picture on Google Images, it brought back memories. The image I had taken with my phone was only the label, not the food itself. Hmmmm….

What was I Drinking?… “Chameleon Cold-Brew Mexican Coffee” (in a cold glass jar). That was very tasty. Get it next time? Mmmmm, No. Too many OTHER selections that I need to try.

So, this Maandog was a good day. Is the next entry here only going to be about a Friday, or will there be one of those other days? Lets just wait and see, Mr. Boy and Ms. Girl (those may be the only two people who read this blog? I have no idea).

It’s only Wed-nes-day… and I am SUFFERING?

I cannot believe this goes on for a SECOND TIME this week! This is why I feel I am in a questionable suffering position…? My “sweet” cousin comes to me today and asks in her pleasant voice…

“Can we go and eat at that WHOLE FOODS place you had commented about on your ‘lovely blog’ on Monday? If you could go with me, I will be so kind enough to drive the two of us over there because you lag a drivers license.”

(I’m sure this is the exact quote she gave me)

What? How did this get this way? How did I get to be the only “direction giving” one? …. well, I don’t know what else I would be in this situation. I became the “purchase my own food” and “eat my own food”. Eh.. I guess I could do those too. 🙂

Wait… Wait… Wait… This is ALL MY FAULT! I was just informed that someone had actually taken time to read this blog? That’s insane…

ok ok ok… What did I eat today…?

Well… I am found to be eating (in an image that I took of my food, so that I would remember it) a large bowl of some kind of flavored Mac & Cheese. Had some green… decoration on the top that was edible. A bit on the cold side, so I just packed it up and brought it home.

NEXT…. 6 Sushi Pieces. That was tasty. Kinda just popped those into the mouth… one-after-another. It was an interesting flavor once bitten into. Not bad at all. —– Oh, this is funny. I was seeing this green piece of “something” sitting in the corner of this plate.

Thinking… “Hmmm.. Let me see what that tastes like.”

Take a bite and find out it is actually a plastic piece for decoration? Haha…

Ah, Dessert…  Toasted Almond Cream Cake. Mmmmm…. That was tasty. Best of the three foods is dessert. Haha…

Now… The Drink! “Califia Farms Mocah Mexica Cold Brew Coffee with Almond Milk“. That is good stuff. Not “cow’s milk” which is good since I’m lactose intolerant.

Nevertheless, today was a good day. 🙂
