Grocery store jackpot! This morning we went shopping for food for the next few days at our usual store: Macey's. When we got to the meat counter, we discovered that they had fresh sea scallops and big-eye tuna. Woo hoo! We got ourselves a pound and a half of scallops (for tomorrow) and two pounds of big-eye tuna (for today). We also picked up four prime ribeyes, about five pounds in total. As if that wasn't enough, they also had fresh Galia melons. If you don't know these melons, you should take your first opportunity to rectify that deplorable situation – they are fantastic! The Galia was developed in Israel, and if you've ever been there you know Israel is the world's center of melon agriculture (along with cottage cheese!).
We just finished a spectacular meal: poke made with big-eye tuna and avocado on brown rice, Galia melon for dessert, washed down with Pelligrino sparkling water. I'm so full I can scarcely move, and I'm afraid my brain may shut down from the food coma I can feel coming over me – and I've got some programming to do, dang it!
