The bread/bakery store down the street is called Padaria Tentação II. It's the second one with this name. "Tentação" is temptation. I suppose they want to tempt you with their goods. Not so appealing a name, however, for whom temptation is something to be avoided.

The Temptations It's Growing

Maybe they were the inspiration!

The Missus is a good cook. She does not like the kitchen, but she shines there. (A renovation done over a year ago made her happier.) She has adapted, or perhaps resigned herself, to it. She used to go strictly by the recipe. She still does, mostly, but now tweaks and substitutes on her own. Over the years, she has innovated with new foods and healthier styles of eating, for which I'm grateful. And I'm happy still to have a simple homemade brownie, which has been a staple since the early days. Life is good.

Taking a little trip this afternoon, 2.5 hours one way, for an organizational meeting for an orphanage. They do a good work. We're more cheerleaders than anything. Our little congregation sends some monthly help.

We also cleaned out our closets of clothes to donate. A lot of stuff I can't wear anymore after slimming down. A lot was given to me that I just don't use. In both cases the clothes are in very good shape and will serve someone well. Most of it they'll probably put in their bazaar to sell, I suppose.

On the way back, we'll make a stop at a friend's house for chili. (Yes, @giac hellvecio, we know a Brazilian who loves Mexican food.) So it'll be late by the time we get home tonight.

Holiday here today, all quiet on the streets, @giac hellvecio.

Went out walking this afternoon, very little movement. Came home, the wife fixed banana pancakes with coconut flour, no gluten. Plus cinammon. Very tasty.

Am trying to stay awake until bedtime.

After lunch I worked on diminishing the stock of The Missus's new brownies, which do not use wheat flour or regular sugar. They're almost fudgy. Definitely delicious. Anytime she wants to feed me some of these, I'm game.

So it's at least an hour away yet, but where shall I eat lunch? With The Missus away, I'll not be fixing at home. So: Chinese? Meat pie? Brazilian rice and beans? I did tea and bread for breakfast, so that's out.

Anybody else take left-over creamed potatoes and make fried patties out of them? Probably regional. Nobody in Manhattan would do that.

The Missus and I tried Domino's Pizza tonight for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised. Our sandwiches and big cheese bread were tasty enough. No idea on how it compares with US stores, since we've never eaten at one there either.

(The parking lot to our first choice was full, so we wound up there. Friday night.)

Nonagenarian Clara apparently had nothing to hide. Each episode includes a couple of anecdotes about life during the Great Depression, the period in which she learned to cook from her thrifty Italian mother.
