Today’s Lunch

I think the typhoon completely missed us, and hit western Japan instead of here.

Talk about a let down. They’ve been talking about the how the typhoon was going to us for days, warning us every day to take precautions and to try not to venture outside today and tomorrow. I was actually hoping the typhoon would come here and make it cooler. I’m so ready for it to be cooler and Fall-ish!

Crisp. That’s the word I want to use to describe the weather right now. Crisp and cool. I’m ready to whip out my fall clothes and start cooking up a bunch of fall foods. Chili and corn bread, soups, stews, a plethora of pumpkin goodies, chestnuts, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, squash etc. I’m so ready for fall!

Today’s lunch: calzone (that I had to slightly squish to fit inside the box), salad and homemade vinaigrette dressing, and a chocolate chip cookie.

Nothing beats a homemade chocolate chip cookie in my books. It’s the ultimate comfort dessert for me. All warm and soft (I don’t like crispy cookies) and gooey, with a glass of cold milk. Ahhh, that’s happiness my friends. It’s been awhile since I made chocolate chip cookies, so I ignored the hot humidity yesterday and baked up a batch of chocolate chip cookies. They make everything better. Except maybe your waistline that is. But you only live once, right?
