Don't leave out the honey. I was tempted to since I don't like any sweet stuff with my food. It really made the sandwich. The flavors were fabulous together!

Last night my husband picked up Karl Strauss for dinner. I had the Ahi Poke and Chopped Cashew Chicken salad.

Both were excellent! 

Breakfast this morning was toast with peanut butter and half a grapefruit.

After I took the kids to school, I drove to Los Angeles to help my mom pack a bit before she moves. We picked up Luciano's for lunch.  I had the antipasto salad. Yum!!
