When I was in college, most afternoons between classes you could find me and a few gregarious musical friends at a place called The Corner, which was literally at the corner intersection of the street beside the School of Music and a downtown college avenue. It was the gathering place and the place to be. Most days we didn't even order. We were such regulars they looked at us and plopped down our food. My favorite? Mornings: Egg salad sandwich with lettuce/tomato and coffee. Afternoon siesta: Oh, why tell? I've recreated it for you below. And besides, every class change I walked by The School of HomeMade Arts & Science Aeronomics
or something like that (or was that just Economics?). Whatever it was, something always smelled fishy in there for sure. Made me hungry for my favorite mid-afternoon lunch break at The Corner.

sliced of tomato
mayo or fancy-schmancy mustard
Split a few red seedless grapes Notice: I did not have red so I used white. Works for wine, why not grapes? Just thought I'd throw that culinary secret in there for all your non-cooking experts.
So, I put it all together and it started to look like this..
Then....it looked like this....I'm getting the hang of this cooking thing, don't cha think?
Raspberry Hazelnut dressing makes everything better - even Yuppie grits. It'll surely work wonders on fish. Brilliant!
Let's have a bite, shall we?
You fry tuna. Right?
Maybe I'd better go back to school.
