Let Me Eat Cake

So... here's a little short post.  It's been humid, and we've had some rain.  And boy are our plants loving it!  I think I already posted pictures here, but you know,  like the way people post about their kids... or their dogs... or their cats... I'm talking again about our plants.

And here is tonight's picture of the wheatgrass.  I wish we could plant the whole yard with wheat grass instead of bermuda grass.  The wheat grass in the fridge that I take out and put next to the cats' food bowl was not looking good, so I just took the old stuff out and dug out some new wheat grass and put it in the where the old stuff was.  The cats loved it.  They were like, "new wheat grass, finally!!!"



Anyway, enough about the kids.  Can I tell you about the cake that the FP baked me?  


Notice I didn't think to take a picture until I had already had a piece!  So, last week, he had to bake a cake for his clients.  It was weird, because it seemed to be for a Super Bowl party.  Like everyone has bean dip, chips and salsa, and chocolate cake, right?  So, like I always do, I said, oh good, you can make me a cake too!  And, then, when he left, there was a cake for me!  

Seeing as how his MO is "I hate chocolate", which isn't really true, it was very sweet of him to make this for me.  It's one of the "sweetest things" anyone has ever done for me!  *sniff*sniff* har har

Anyway, he made it on Sunday.  Contrary to my pledge to cut down on candida feeding foods and drinks, I've been eating cake every damn day.  



This is what's left.  I will finish this sucker off by tomorrow night for sure.  It is only starting to get a little stale.  And do you like the way I've left it on the same plate.  I obviously have scraped the plate with my finger on occasion when putting the plate back in the fridge.  I'm such a pig!!!

Food

Descriptive title, eh?  Well, let's get started then.  No need to dilly dally or shilly shally.  That's what the Unnecessary Supplement blog is really about.

Holy Fuckin Cannoli.  What's this?  BBQ shrimp.  As in Nawlins BBQ shrimp.  If you're not familiar, it's not like barbequed shrimp.  It's this shrimp dish that you cook in with spices, worcestershire, garlic, and lots and lots of butter.  The FP made it with lots and lots of butter.  It's so fucking good, the shrimp are delicious, but, one has the urge to just take a whole loaf or bread, or baguette, or whatever, and just submerge it in the sauce and eat the whole thing.








So, the next day, the FP used the leftovers and made a shrimp and sausage tomato sauce.  He really let the sauce stew.




Then he served it over pasta.  Yum yum!









This was an unusual dinner for us.
 New York Strip - that's not unusual.  And sauteed onions and mushrooms pan sauce.  That's not unusual either.  I love having mushrooms and onions with steak!  But the sides were.  The FP is working for this family that likes healthy food, so he had some brown rice.  So that's what we ate.  I discovered brown rice a while ago, having worked in a restaurant where serving healthy crap was kind of important.  But for the FP, brown rice is a new revelation.  It's not like we are turning in our white rice frequent buyer card or anything, but it's nice to eat different rices for different meals.  And then the other vegetable was garlic and ginger roasted brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes.  I gotta say, it was refreshing and delicious to have a little change from the usual.






Hebrew National hotdog wrapped in proscuitto with whole grain mustard.  Need I say more?







Horribly cheap pizza from the place down the street.

I read reviews saying it used to be great NY style pizza before, but recently the place changed ownership and the quality suffered.  The large pizza with two toppings was $13.50 or so.  Cheap.  Cheap taste.  There was a ton of mozzarella and barely any sauce.  And you know I would rather have it the other way.  And then the mushrooms.  The mushrooms.  They were canned.  And it seemed like they were tossed on the pizza at the very end.  So, they just tasted like canned mushrooms.






Weird thrown together salad.
 We had lettuce and vinegars and olive oil.  Just no "stuff" to put in it.  We've been putting croutons in our salad practically every time we have it.  But on this day, there were none.  But, I had some potato chips that I had bought to eat with one of my guilty pleasures - store bought onion dip.  I wanted some crunch, so I garnished with potato chips.  Which kind of just made me want a potato chip salad!  But I didn't have one.  I probably didn't have bread for it.





Another thrown together lunch.
Grilled turkey, swiss and proscuitto sandwich with pickles and mustard, "grilled" in the pan with olive oil.  Potato chips again, and just lettuce with oil and vinegar.  Simple simple simple.


I hope everyone is having a good new year of the dragon!
