I did my weekly food shopping at Whole Foods and had a roast-beef sandwich and provolone. I’m going to dinner tonight with a friend. I may make a meat loaf tomorrow. I'm very excited.
Tuesday, January 9
I had coffee. My wife had some friends over; I was working in my office. I had cheese and crackers and sausage hors d'oeuvre. That night my wife went to a work party. I put the kid to bed, and I made a steak and Brussels sprouts and salad. I watched Shallow Grave and called it a day.

I had a Nathan’s hot dog for lunch. At night I went to Loulou. It was pretty empty; I got some work done. I had a French onion soup and a hangar steak medium rare with fries and salad. I had steak twice in a row, but that’s how I roll.
Sunday, January 7
I ordered chicken and broccoli and wonton soup for lunch from a Chinese place in Park Slope called Mr. Wonton. For dinner we ordered from Zaytoons, the local Middle Eastern place, and I had a shawarma sandwich with no tomatoes and hot sauce. Tomato in its native form repulses me, frankly.
Saturday, January 6
I went to a kids' party on Atlantic Avenue, and the hosts ordered some pizza with thinly sliced prosciutto from Graziella’s. We had cake, too. For dinner I went to a friend’s house, and they made pork tacos. I really like tacos. Any sort of meat-in-dough combo whether it's hot dogs or wontons or pork tacos I’m a big fan.
