today's renegade lunch found us in the lobby of one of cleveland's classic department stores from a bygone era, the halle building. ben called at 7 a.m. to tell me that he'd been up all night with flu so we tapped our trusted longtime friend and culinary companion, ryan bennett, to fill in for the day. we cooked up some chili pepper and scallion egg rolls with lime ginger soy dipping stuff and a tasty thai beef and fried noodle salad with warm vinaigrette. thanks to our generous guests, we raised $800 to help the puppies and kitties (and bunnies) at the cleveland APL. see you all in may!
