A few of my Swedish friends staying in Serbia threw a sort of traditional Swedish midsummer dinner last night. So we had pickled herring (various varieties), smoked salmon and kalles kaviar with boiled young potatoes, spring onions and cream and Swedish rye crispbread.
But I thought we should give it a slight Mediterranean slant so we added some of my favorite Serbian white cheese from Sjenica region (threw shade on rather bland cream), some Kalamata dried olives and some Iranian fresh dates for dessert.

We drank a very fine, almost liqueur like, Plomari Ouzo from Lesbos. And a bit stronger Strumicka Mastika from Makedonija (or Northern Makedonija of recent).

Breakfast today was four scrambled eggs with wheat toast and coffee.

Dinner last night was gratifying: grilled salmon, mashed potatoes and asparagus.

I found a program which provides temporary housing and free meals for up to ninety days, along with rental assistance. So l have a roof over my head again and regular food.

I've also taken the steps needed to resume working in the career l abandoned last year. Once the state of California re-activates my license, which should happen by early next week, I'll be legally employable again. Two managers told me a while back to let them know when l was legal & ready to work, so hopefully they'll have something to offer.

So things are looking up, and at some point in the near future l should no longer be unemployed or homeless.

Very pleased to hear this and belatedly hoping that things continue to look up for you.

A sirloin steak - untrimmed it started at just under 200g - with fried onions, mushrooms and chips. And one pint of full fat milk.
The steak was medium rare.

e: it doubled as a post workout meal and the fairly recent change to my routine has me weighing about 155 lbs, although how I feel and the way my clothes fit are of more importance than the numbers.

We had tuna steaks tonight, the recipe featured in the Hairy Biker's Sardinian episode: the tuna fried with olive oil, garlic and bay leaves then finished in a tomato sauce with white wine: simple but delicious. Served with noodles and green beans with shallots. Drank a locally produced Chardonnay.

Last night (& tonight), I had wild Scottish salmon (a thicker middle section cut--no toxic tail for me), with Cherchie's Champagne mustard spread over the top of the filet (with a butter knife), and then sprinkled liberally with Cherchie's Lemon Dill seasoning.   Plus, a squeeze of half a lemon after that.  I then cook it for about 20 minutes in the oven (at 375 or 380 degrees), and serve it over a mound of homemade garlic mashed potatoes.  (The Salmon must be placed over the potatoes on the plate.)  On the side, I had spinach that was sauteed in garlic and avocado oil.  (Sometimes peas, corn/corn on the cob, or asparagus are good options too.)  It's currently one of my favorite dishes, and relatively easy to prepare & clean up.

Didn't know there is such a thing.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

Sounds fine indeed, Sarge. I'm sure Mrs. Rock and yourself enjoyed it.  :)

Sarge

Yeah, I know you're not a fan of milk for adults. ;D But it's helped keep my strength up this long and so I'm not about to quit it anytime soon.  8) :laugh:

from Leonard Slatkin's journal  http://www.leonardslatkin.com/journal/

Because I am still in recovery mode, it is not possible to help with all the components of the move-in process. I can lift some things, but nothing too heavy. Mostly I watch the man who is responsible for setting up the media room. But I have been able to cook and especially barbeque. The challenge is coming up with tasty foods that are low in sugar, sodium, fat and starch. Oven-baked water is delicious.
