I had the left over cactus leaves for lunch. I brought more food, but forgot to eat.

For dinner, I went to an office move party for a start up in San Francisco called SpongeFish. I was there as a "judge" - they did a cooking contest theme for their party. I mostly ate hors d'oeuvres.

For the judging I tasted tuna balls which were served cold. They were fairly good - the combination of the tomato sauce and the cooked fish reminded me of canned sardines, but milder. I don't usually like cooked tuna dishes, but this one is pretty decent.

Onion rings were up next. I really didn't like the batter - it was pretty bland. The onions were crispy and sweet, but the batter was just no good for me.

The next thing up was chicken that had been briefly cooked in the pan after being mixed with a dry rub. This was the tastiest of the bunch, but technically wasn't a recipe since the article just promoted using spice rubs in general and recommended a few starting points.

Finally, there were the coconut buckwheat pancakes. To accommodate the number of people at the party, the pancakes were made very, very small. In my opinion, this reduces the quality of the texture of the pancakes, so it was hard to judge. I thought it was okay.

When I got home, I bought a bag of salad and ate the whole thing with some of my ranch dressing.
