Lunch weirdness

I must say that of late, the whole blogging thing is getting a bit old for me. It’s probably because I don’t get out much and so figure I have nothing much interesting to recount. For instance, since I work at home, my typical day consists of getting up, eating breakfast, doing some translation, making supper, fiddling around until bedtime, repeat. Occasionally, I go to a rehearsal in the evening, and a few times a year, I play an actual concert.

But this afternoon, I have something to report that might just interest my reader. (Disclaimer: if you have a sensitive stomach, stop reading here.) The larder is bare, so lunch today called for some serious scrounging. Here’s what I’m having (as I write this, in fact). Three pieces of pannetone sliced like bread, topped with mayo and smoked halibut on one slice and sardines in tomato sauce and cheese on the other two. Even I—he of the cast-iron stomach, Ranger the human vacuum—think that’s strange, and I’m pretty sure it is by just about any standard. But hey, if you’re hungry… Actually it’s not that bad; the sweetness of the bread and the smoke flavour are surprisingly good. I haven’t got to the sardines yet, so I may change my tune in a mouthful or two.

Ranger!!! Panettone and sardine and smoked something? You really have to come to Italy. LOL

Paula, your comment leaves me wondering whether my lunch was typcial Italian fare (somehow I doubt it) or whether I'm so far gone that the only cure is a trip to Italy. I suppose that's possible even without considering my strange diet.

I think you may have gone to cooking school with my husband.

I don't see what's wrong with your meal. Yesterday for lunch, I had two tins of sardines, a bowl of salad and a handful of almonds. Eat healthy, that's my motto.

Somehow, Helm, your not finding my lunch strange is not reassuring. Now why is that? ;-)))
