Yesterday I went to the local farmers market and picked up some heirloom tomatoes. I bought the tomato below just because it looked so weird, like some funky tomato monster is hatching out of it. The last photo has Squeaky in it.

I took a cooking class at Roy’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Pasadena this past weekend. I LOVE Roy’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. I was so excited I just kept grinning before class started. We made appetizers at this class. It was my first cooking class at Roy’s, but I’ll definitely take classes there in the future.
I just ate way too much Indian food. I got a two curry combo and it comes with so much food! It’s from India Sweets and Spices, a restaurant/market that has different curries made every day. Most of the stuff on the menu I have no clue as to what it is. But it still tastes good. I got everything below for $6.99 plus tax! I couldn’t finish all of it. I really like this place, but keep in mind I’m a white chick from the valley that has very little experience with Indian cuisine.

Here are some excerpts from the main article. And don’t ask me why the fonts are all different, it’s not letting me fix them.
Standing before the ticket vending machine at the entrance to a new Tokyo lunch outlet, hungry patrons have the option of buying scales to weigh themselves along with their meal selection.
The button choices on the machine represent the concept of the restaurant: It’s designed to make you, all at once, hyper aware of how healthy you will be for the next 30 minutes while eating your meal, with a reminder of how much healthier you could be the rest of the time.
Such is the tug and pull dining experience at an establishment opened by Tanita Corp., a healthcare equipment maker that is also behind the 2010 best-selling cookbooks featuring full-course meals that contain only about 500 calories. On Wednesday, the Osaka-based manufacturer of body scales and body mass index measuring devices opened Tanita Dining Hall in Tokyo’s Marunouchi business district, the restaurant incarnation of the popular low-calorie, low-sodium recipe books based on menus served at the firm’s employee cafeteria.
There are two set course options. One is taken from a recipe book, and the other is made exclusively for the restaurant. The set-up is constant – a main dish, two sides, soup and white rice.
Just like the recipe books, flat screens facing out along the glass wall at Tanita display the calorie count with corresponding pictures of the meals on the menu that week.
