Thanks for all the support yesterday after my check fraud incident. It's a total bummer that it happened, but there's nothing I can do now. It's being handled by the bank, but the process of dealing with it just sucks.
Yesterday, I woke up with one of those really aweful aura migraines. Also known as a silent migraine. You know when your vision looks like your seeing swiggly-wavy lines, which is accompanied by a headache and possibly other symptons. I've been a sufferer of that for many years. It sucks when it happens. But luckily it isn't as frequent as it used to be. *knock on wood* By coincidence, a friend of mine offered to buy lunch. I was well enough to not to pass up that opportunity. Plus, it gave us time to catch up and chat chit.
We decided on Panera in Pasadena, CA. As much as I love their sandwiches, I wanted something relatively on the light side. I decided soup was the way to go.
I order the french onion soup in a sourdough bread bowl. Onion goodness with croutons and pieces of swiss cheese on top. I mix the cheese in to get it melted good. and scoop up the soup with a scoop of the bread. Yum!! The cap of the bread bowl and insides were also served along with a nice piece of crusty crisp fresh french bread. It's not like I had enough bread as it is, why not add a little more right? Good thing I love my breads. Go carbs!!!
It was really a soup kind of day with the clouds and rain. The spring rain has been sporadic these past few weeks. I'm not complaining, it's good to have the water for all the trees and plants. I actually like rainy days. Since discovering Panera a couple years ago, it has been one of my favorite place to eat or even...
You know...I've always wondered... why do some people order soup in a bread bowl and never eat the bread, when there is that option to have it served in a regular bowl? It's a waste of perfectly edible bread. I've seen it happen many times. I like to eat up every bit that absorbed the soup. Soft and mushy. I'll even tear pieces of it apart. That's just me and my random oberservation on the bread bowl. It sparked my curiosity.
