Palm Springs on Saturday was pretty warm so we went to the cool Rick's again for lunch. He has THREE soups of the day for jaded palates, clam chowder, chicken and vegetable - the latter was really a well developed broth with not too many carrots. I had the Swedish meatloaf plate with gobs of salad (Atkins has turned me into a rabbit). The meatloaf was beef and pork, good flavor but I don't care for chunks of carrots in the mix - shredded is fine, but with some mayo it was a good lunch. Partner had the medio noche with ham, pork, pickles, mayo, tomato in a roll that was grilled (not sure if this is an accurate description but it tasted wonderful.
Dinner was at Thai Kitchen 2 on N.Palm Canyon (it was 95 went we went out to dinner). Just ate snacks, cup of Tom Yum with shrimp, chicken sates with two dipping sauces and crystal shrimp with such a good dipping sauce that I asked the waitperson to leave it on the table. Plate of roasted duck we split to finish a light dinner. This is not the finest Thai one could find in LA but good, well prepared food and it beat the pyjamas out of cooking at home.
