  2. Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and McDonalds Sausage Egg McMuffin

Went to Cafe Medina on the weekend with Grouchy. Loved the Liege waffles and fig-orange compote. Grouchy purred over the blueberry compote. Sadly, their chef makes it and it’s not for sale. =(

Heard that compote goes well with gorgonzola cheese. Or on a baguette. Must try it.

Another good place for Liege waffles is Patisserie LeBeau (1708 West 2nd Avenue in between Fir & Pine). They are good enough to come out with their line of frozen waffles available at Capers. Delicious!

  • 2 slices of Halloumi sliced (optional) if none available I’ld use a goat cheese of sorts or feta
  • handful of cherry tomatoes or small ones would do
  • chickpeas tin or dried
  • red onion
  • mint
  • cilantro
  • red wine vinegar
  • olive oil
  • juice and zest of a lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste


1. Sliced onions, mint, cilantro into bowl.  Add vinegar and olive oil along with salt and pepper, toss together.

2. Tomatoes could go into oven to get roasted or thrown into salad fresh.

3. Drain chickpeas out of can or if being boiled cook and then cool.

4. Halloumi is grilled till golden brown placed on top of mint mixture.

5. Lastly, zest and juice of a lemon-personal perference.

Grouchy’s verdict: not half bad. It was a twist from a salad I had a few weeks ago while roaming around Seattle.  Need to another leaf to the salad…too much cilantro taste for me. Change it up with some spinach or watercress.
