Ate at Sara’s Pastries and Deli near work on Jefferson at lunch.  They have some regular deli sammiches, but also a few Peruvian items.  I had an empanada and a red tamale.  I don’t usually like the taste of tamales for some reason, but I liked this one.  Tasty stuff.  Too bad I didn’t have time to try one of their tasty-looking desserts.

We ate at Pita Taza…a Middle Eastern fast food place on Paseo and Wyoming.  We got the meat and veggie combo plates…quite tasty!  Only thing missing to me was whatever that spicy shawarma sauce is that they have at Yasmine’s.

The story behind the inventor of Sriracha.  Funny that he mentions “We don’t make mayonnaise here” but Subway was testing a kinda Sriracha mayo combo.  (ew)

Vanessa and I ate at Namaste in Rio Rancho.  Along with the Indian food, we got some veggie momo.  (Excellent name for a band.)  It’s basically dumplings.  For dessert, we got some rasmalai, a cream cheese-based dessert that reminded me of cheesecake.

Yasmine’s Meat Combo #1 and Veg Combo #1.  Dump some of their hot sauce on the shawarma and it’s one of the best meals in Albuquerque!

Get the box o’ frozen yakisoba bowls at Costco.  Dump in Sriracha, and you’re golden.  Keep a bottle of Sriracha in the fridge at work, under your desk, in your closet, and taped to your back.  You never know.

I ordered udon the other night.  It was kinda bland and I was thinking, “This would be really good with Sriracha.”  I say that about almost all food now, so I think I have a Sriracha problem.  Without Sriracha, food is just 2D.

Went to Los Cuates the other day.  With their chips, they serve a weird combination salsa that tastes like it has barbecue sauce in it.  Some of their dishes come with regular salsa, so maybe they have some available.

We went to Saigon 2 for dinner.  I got some iced Vietnamese Coffee Milk.  It was pretty strong, but was good as long as you sip it.  It wasn’t some insane flavor or anything…just kinda like strong coffee.  Although kinda expensive at about a dollar an ounce or so.

We watched the Oliver! musical on Netflix.  I looked up gruel.  It’s basically Malt-O-Meal if you’ve ever had that…a thin hot wheat-based soupy stuff.  Porridge is a thicker version of gruel.  I like Malt-O-Meal with butter and sugar, but I’m guessing Oliver didn’t get any of those in the orphanage/workhouse.  Come to think of it, my kids have never had malt-o-meal.  Time to let them try it.  And if they ask for more, they’ll have to talk to the administrators!
