Day 160 – for breakfast I had raspberries from the Triangle Market. For lunch, I had leftover chicken with some baby arugula and garden tomatoes. Dinner was leftover bison, made into a taco salad, and more leftover chicken. Boring. This is one of the things I miss about grocery store convenience – this whole chicken deal. I don’t enjoy breaking down a chicken. So I cook the whole thing, then just have lots of leftovers. There is one vendor at a market I don’t go to that I think sells chicken cut up, so I can’t feel too sorry for myself.
Day 161 – Friday. Raspberries for breakfast. For lunch, I stopped at Fete Acompli and had one of the best chicken salad sandwiches I’ve ever had. She sources locally, has a booth at the SFC Market at Republic Square, and makes amazing food. The chicken salad had nuts and basil in it. I also got some egg salad made with local eggs. Amazing. I had a very impressive dinner at Eddie V’s with my parents. The hostess remembered us by name, which surprised me. I was flattered and impressed. They sat us in a different section than where we normally sit, and when I told the server I was cold, he brought out wraps for mom and me. The table next to was was wrapped up too. That is impeccable service. I had the beef tenderloin “carpetbag” with fried oysters and bernaise and a salad.
