Favorite Meals All Day!

Sunday, October 15
As I finished most of households yesterday, I had free time in the afternoon. I went to Kaelin Farm Market to pick up a pumpkin. Soergel Orchard is a big one in Wexford. In fact, they are good but it is very busy on weekend right now. I just needed one pumpkin, so Kaelin Farm Market is good enough and also they have fresh groceries and yummy sandwiches. Anyway I made Jack-O'-Lantern before the Steelers game starts. We won, so it was a good Sunday!

Okonomiyaki (Cabbage Pancake) 

Spring Roll, Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken), Cabbage Salad

Saturday for Households

Saturday, October 14
I worked all day today; cleaning house, kitchen and bathrooms, doing dishes and laundry. I was going to cook but it was too beautiful inside. So I asked J to grill hamburger. I wonder how many evening we can eat outside rest of this year. Yeah, we should enjoy outside dining whenever weather permits!

Shrimp Cocktail, Olive, Dried Fig, Cheese, Cracker

Hamburger, Baked Potato, Salad

South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort at Loose Moose

Friday, October 14
I went to Loose Moose for fundraiser for South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort. Donate $10 and get drink special $2 you-call its all night. Also it has $4 for any kinds of sandwiches. Even it includes $10 donations, it was pretty good price. But I don't think I am going back. The whole pub smelt like cigarette. I guess it is smoker friendly. It's a great place for smokers but not for me.

Dinner at Loose Moose
Chicken Parmesan: This is only $4. Cheaper than fast food places!

Thursday Night Date

Thursday, October 12
As I had an errand to do in East Liberty, I decided to try a restaurant, Spork. Is it new? Since I moved to North Hills, I don't go to new places anymore. I enjoyed eating out and also there was a nice surprise. My old co-worker was working at the restaurant! It was so nice seeing him. Hopefully I'll see him again soon.

Dinner at Spork
Crostini: I liked it. I would like to try it at home. Goat Cheese, prosciutto, grilled peach on bread.

Straw & Hay: It tasted good but a bit too oily for me.

Choucroute: This is J's plate.  At least, he enjoyed it.

Shio Saba Teishoku

Monday, October 9

Dinner: Shio Saba Teishoku (Mackerel Meal)
- Grilled Saba, Kimpira Gobou(burdock root), Salad, Miso Soup, Rice
Typical Japanese meal set. If it has pickled plum or daikon radish, it would be perfect!
