Hot stuff

Well my lunch at Panera this week was nice but needless to say, going out to eat is a lot more fun with friends. And well, generally more expensive than eating in. So bottom line, not many strong reasons to eat out by myself right now. Especially when I can make this lunch for less than a dollar:

I pan fried (note to self: add grill to wish list) some zucchini slices and and sandwiched it between two sandwich rounds slathered with some hummus and baba ghanoush. Pretty tasty if you ask me:

After lunch, I saw a fire truck pull up in front of the house.

When I opened the door they were hosing down a tree in front!

Apparently someone (not distractedly eating a delicious sandwich) saw the mulch smoking and called the fire department. I can't believe I didn't notice it myself. Maybe if it had been cooler and I had some windows open I would have at least noticed the smell but with it still in the 90s, we've been pretty shut up with the a/c on. So grateful someone was paying attention and called it in.

What to do after such high adventure? Go to the grocery store.

I reflexively thought that "Piggly Wiggly" and Extra Virgin Olive Oil were a bit incongruous together on a label but who knows? Maybe they have a similar label in Italy or Greece...

Yes, I bought it.

The mulch just starts flaming by itself? Like some sort of spontaneous lanscaping combustion?

That mulch story is crazy.

Oh, and speaking of your wish list, it still lists your shipping address as "NEWPORT BEACH, CA."
