Lunch: Leftover Papa Murphy's pizza heated in a countertop convection oven until the crust was crispy again. (Just noticed there's no sales tax on a Papa Murphy's pizza - I think it's because they don't cook it for you.)

Dinner: We wanted ramen, but couldn't find a place in Austin for it. Ended up heating up the noodles from last night's Chinese food and augmented with some roast chicken and kale. Tina had the remaining manicotti.
Noodles, roast chicken, kale

  • "Just noticed there’s no sales tax on a Papa Murphy’s pizza - I think it’s because they don’t cook it for you."

    That's exactly right. Different states handle it differently, but I know in Wisconsin, there's sales tax on popped popcorn, but not on unpopped, for example.
