We toasted the day with radiated rations of grainy goods at The Mill:

... where we ran for bread spread with pumpkin butter ($3.75):

This patch of sour slice bound with butter and sweetened with squash was good but trumped by dark rye ($3.75):

... iced with cream cheese and dusted with pepper. We thinned out the dose of lactose on this tasty tile and finished carbohydrating with a puff pastry pillow cratered with Gruyere and mushrooms ($4.75):

Flaked and baked, this open faced umami pop tart was swell snackage.

Four Barrel Coffee loaded our chambers in this caffeine carbthedral where we will continue to commune for the fine fluids and floury flourishes at this grind house.

There was no shop, only Ping:

... during our visit to the strip mall in San Rafael where soup ($7.50):

... had won ton of salt followed by duck ($16.00):

... that didn’t scratch the itch of our hankering for the Dim Sum Club’s fine fowl.

DSC’s fluffy steamed buns and shattering shielded moist meat was ducked by an unconvincing cover while shrimp with broccoli ($12.00):

... fell into the standard issue category.

No ponging back for us.

Brussels sprouts ($8.00):

... headed in the direction of the deep fryer at Tamalpie where this frilly fusion of health and hedonism was gilded with cheese, lemon and capers.

Meatballs ($9.00):

... had a bright tomato sauce and garlic-rubbed slices of olive-oiled M.H. levain (which is our local loaf of liking.)

Gratis bottles of filtered sparkling or still water:

... offered some hydrate before our carbo.

Fennel sausage pizza ($17.00):

... was Neapolitan-style with a wider bread band than we prefer. There was some good blistering but it did not knock Picco’s pie from our top Marin ‘za pick (due to dough texture, salt level, and topping ratios). Pickiness aside, it was still a ‘semblage of satisfactory slices.

After an accidental overcharge for our wine:

... we checked our check and checked out of this ‘politan portal.

This year we didn’t have TSA considerations so we got to bake pie:

... for our favorite holiday hootenanny at J & K’s.

As usual, the turkey was perfect and they made so many sides:

... that our plates were piled:

... with plentiful permutations of Pilgrimy plunder after loads of libations with seafoody starters.

This rite of religious refugees was a great gathering.

99 Ranch was $5.99 Ranch as mongers were all about tanks-giving doling out Dungeness to a shellfish crowd.

We clawed our way out and cooked up our crusties with lots of garlic, citrus and pepper picking clean each morsel of insanely sweet meat with a bit of heat.

Dungeness and dustedgeness until our next dive into the pool of punters.

We pinned:

... down a granulated burger ($10.00):

...during happy hour at Mission Bowling Club.

It’s been a while since we had one of these cravable cow column combos and this tantilizingly textured cheeseburger:

... remains right up our alley.

Fried chicken ($10.00):

... was speared and suspended above a pool of ranch dressing. We washed down these crisp crusted nuggets with a Mad River Steelhead pale ale and a Moonlight reality Czech.

We appreciate a bowling alley with cloth napkins, china plates and cocktails.

Szechwan ribs ($12.00):

... with black vinegar peanuts and cilantro striked at chord but the granulated grub will have us rolling back to this ultimate pin palace.

The burger ($14.50):

... at Causwells comes medium well due to the thin double patty construction (according to the friendly server.) This sesame-seeded bun-bordered, meat mitt was reminiscent of a fast food burger (in a good way.) Onion strings squiggled into a alum-inum wool heap that we tucked into our sandwiches and ate straight.

We liked the dry cider from Booneville while the alcoholic ginger beer was a sweeter soda sip.

Deviled eggs ($6.50):

... came in classic, avocado and puffed farro and smoked trout inter-egg-tions.

This Chestnut Street well may not be one for the rotation, but it was a fine turnout for some tucker today.

Even though our luck has been a little shaky at Bubba’s:

... we got our egg fix with a couple basic breakfasts this morning.

Bacon and eggs ($9.95):

... was a denny-son of dejeuner as was the Joe’s special ($12.95):

... with spinach, onions and ground beef. Unspecial Joe was also served in cups of caffeination. Our basic needs were met at this San Anselmo standby.

Amano :

...was on hand during today’s Chocolate Salon at Fort Mason.

We dipped our toes in the dos rios of Art Pollard's 'sanal slabs of pleasing pod-duction, before sampling Gâté Comme des Filles Chocolats:

... intensely flavored meyer lemon and coffee confections.

Charles of Charles Chocolates:

... brought his cravable caramel almond sticks and maple truffles while Kika’s espresso shortbreads:

... were beany biscuits of bliss.

Quail Point:

... took flight in an array of small batch chocolates with delicate shells and finessed flavors with top quail-ty ingredients.

We were particularly impressed by these Napa-nested truffles.

PinotFest was a whole cluster of conviviality:

... with familiar faves like Twomey:

The 2012 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir was a black-cherried pool of pleasure that spoke twomey.

The always effervescent Master Sommelier Eugenio Jardim:

... was on hand as ambassador for Ernest Vineyards with sating Sonoma sippage in their 2012 The Engineer Pinot Noir.

Flowers Vineyards:

... 2012 Sea View Ridge Pinot Meunier, Block 19 bloomed with balance in this long stemmed glass of berried bliss.

Farallon finger food:

... flowed along with the fluids during this swirling ballroom of pressed and polished potions including Paul Lato’s:

...raspberry-kissed 2012 Suerte Pinot Noir from Solomon Hills Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley which was one of our favorites mingling of strawbs and ‘cidity in this lucky ‘lixir.

Once again, Pinot Fest has cloned an exciting blend of beverages.
