It was super fresh, salty and delicate. I would serve it with a peaches, basil and red onion salad, with a garlic-lemon vinaigrette and some crusty bread. Yummy.

Pineapple square, my fav!
This is where my egg sandwich plan went out the window.

Cream of vegetable, Alex's lasagna, lemonade, pinapple square - $6
Vegetable soupe, Lasagna, lemonade, pineapple mousse square - $6
This is where my egg sandwich plan went out the window. See, it was "Artisan Lunch" day and this lasagna looked just too good to pass up on. The recipe was provided by Alex Bernier, one of our senior copywriters. People raved about it all afternoon. Facebook status were updated and people tweeted about it non-stop. Pictures were taken. Some even promised Alex to name their first child in his honor. It was a lasagna to shame all other lasagnas.

Fish croquette, kewpie, tomato, rice, pickles - at home
I've decided that I hate grape tomatoes. 1 out of 4 tastes horrible. It's the boobie-trap of vegetables.

I also ate a cookie but took no pic because you guys must be starting to get fed up of looking at pictures of my delicious cookies without having one.
