Feb 19, lunch. Chinese food at the Chinese restaurant near Adrienne's office. Shrimp and noodles. Good. The egg roll: bad, but what did I expect? With Adrienne.

Feb 19, dinner. At Zemam's in Tucson with Mark and Rose. That little bit of green on the right under the Gored Gored is a zucchini pancake. Rose can't take gluten, so she usually brings her own injeera made of teff, but when she doesn't have teff or time, sometimes something else pops up.
