Weekend Pleasures




I am fortunate to live close to two amazing museums, The Phoenix Art Museum and the internationally known Heard Museum. One of my favorite pastimes is to spend some leisure time exploring one of these places and treating myself to lunch at their wonderful cafes operated by Arcadia Farms. That is exactly what I did this weekend. I took this picture while I was waiting for my salad to arrive. What a great way to spend a Saturday. By the way, that salad is called a California Roll salad and it was excellent.


Because I work from my home at least two days a week, I can even slip out to one of these great lunch places and treat myself during the week.

Those photos do indeed demonstrate very good pleasure. If it weren't so early, I'd pop a cork and join you. Personal question to be answered if you wish: if you work at home, what do you do. Just curious.

It is all so beautifully presented. I can't quite make out what's in the Californis roll; I can see prawns and rice and lettuce of course but what else is there?

To Kate & Angela: I work as a project manager and am able to work from home to save a very lengthy commute.
The salad has all the ingredients of the sushi California roll. Mostly shrimp, rice, avacados, and then topped with a salad tossed in a soy and sesame dressing. I'm trying to figure out how to make it at home.
