Jul 11: Pastrami & Tabouli, Tomato & Swiss; So Cal Creatives & OWC Dinner


A direct repeat of yesterday’s sandwiches.

  • The pastrami was $11.99 for 16 oz and we used 2 oz, or 63c per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Swiss slices are 12 for $3.99 or 33c per serve
  • The tomato adds 25c per serve
  • Add 45c for butter and garlic dip.

Lunch today cost $1.98 per serve.


During the afternoon the Foodies drove to San Diego to attend the SoCal Creatives and OWC Dinner with media professions (who may also be user group leaders). Hosted by OWC it was a great evening of camaraderie and sharing. Sincere thanks to OWC.

The food from Rancho Bernado Inn was excellent, starting with an Asparagus soup with Creme Fraiche , whitefish caviar and Asparagus tips. While it tasted a little salty by itself, with the Creme Fraiche and caviar it was perfectly balanced.

Poured at the table, it came with a little theater!

There was a choice of mains, with Foodie Philip opting for the Emmer & Co Chicken, Lentils, Shallots, Nueske’s Bacon, Cabbage and Mushroom. It was a good, flavorful chicken – as much as you can get – with a well balanced and deeply rich sauce that made eating lentils appealing! I think the bacon and mushroom contributed.

Foodie Greg enjoyed the Wild Island Salmon, Kombu, Radishes, Green Garlic Fumet, Preserved Meyer Lemon, which similarly met his high standards.
