This morning, just a whole-wheat bagel with veggie cream cheese, the usual coffee, the usual banana.

For breakfast today I made some Red Mill polenta (grits) which are better than the average grits because they are made from whole corn, instead of degermed corn. I stirred in a little butter and topped it off with a soft-fried egg. Delish!

(Hopefully I can entice Jeff Wrangler back by talking about one of his favorite things, grits)  8)

Breakfast today was some Cheerios and skim milk.

Lunch was a lo-cal shake and some yogurt.

Dinner will be veal parm & corn on the cob.

I had lunch at Todd English's Food Hall below the Plaza Hotel:  Flatbread pizza with gorgonzola, figs and prosciutto washed down with a Cisco Whale's Tale Pale Ale.  Delish!

Yum, Meryl!  A very New England meal! That's one of Todd English's signature dishes.  I think it was considered rather odd twenty years ago, but it's delish.  In fact, he has a few restaurants named "Figs" that feature that dish. There's still one in Beacon Hill. 

I love whale's tale pale ale from Natucket too. 

Below the Plaza?  Like in the cellar?

It was a stellar lunch fer sure!  Yes, the Plaza has had various things in its below-ground space, but now it's a rather daunting maze of individual shops selling all sorts of foods and baked goods.  Like at Eataly, there are tables and counters here and there.  I just sat down at the burger counter and was relieved when a waitress took charge of me.  We should go there on your next visit, Paul.  There's an oyster bar, too.  ;D

I love figs and have a fig tree in my sunroom.

I skipped lunch because dinner at the Sherpa House was in my plans. First, a friend and I went to an exhibition of Degas drawings. At the Sherpa House, we began with a plate of momos (dumplings), and then had saag (creamed spinach) with cheese, cauliflower and potato curry and onion naan bread. And rice, which I didn't eat.

I've tried figs, not a fan.  I don't even like fig newtons.
