1. You barely ate breakfast and find yourself famished at 2 pm. What lunch food sounds best?

  1. Something with a spicy kick, like spiced rice or tacos (For filling? Carnitas, shrimp, fish…I love the options!)
  2. Sushi (Dragon roll or Spicy tuna, that is the question).
  3. Something that’s quality over quantity, like a fruit and cheese platter or vegetarian crepe (with wine, of course!)
  4. A caprese panini paired and colorful side salad with local olive oil and balsamic. (The more mozzarella, the better.)
  5. I’m a carnivore, as long as it has a lot of meat and is good quality? I’m happy.

  1. Singing karaoke at a local pub or karaoke bar.

  4. Probably hosting a dinner party or going out to the cinema, but, no matter what, it involves wine or dessert. (Preferably both.)
