another meal that is basically ordinary, but I just
had to add in a few exotic touches. The sandwich is
a good ol' BLT, but the bread
is a steamed
cafeteria roll. It's a little denser than a regular
cafeteria roll, and lacks the crust. (And, because I
forgot to put a paper towel under the lid, water dripped
on it and caused the yellowish dent in the center. Oops.)
Those pealike things are actually baked snow pea crisps.
Rice crackers flavored with peas, baked in the shape
of pea pods! The last time I was at Ranch 99 my mother
told me how much she liked them, so I bought a bag.
They're surprisingly good! I'd recommend them.
And finally, a whole mango, thanks to a sale at my grocery
store. Its moisture de-crunchified the snow pea crisps
a bit by lunchtime, but the lettuce leaf I put under
it did keep juice from getting anything soggy.
