If I want to, I'll post 'em in this very blog.
such a stupid word. A word that can’t decide what it is
so it just slaps itself together into a cute, six letter compromise. Even
though Breakfast gets first billing, it only gets a third of the letters.
Lunch is clearly dominant.
got some mail from Sean B. on this very subject:
Hits and Misses:
Had these with a vegetable wheat salad and heirloom tomatoes, basil and buffalo mozzarella. YUM
Not only does it

(how does it know?) it’s machine washable. I can’t wait to
test drive it next week.

Continuing study in the art of the Vietnamese sandwich today is in the form of a BBQ Pork and BBQ Chicken Banh Mi from Wrap Delight:
was moist and flavorful, they must have noticed my ears because
the put a generous portion of grated carrot on top with the required cilantro
and thinly sliced jalapeno. This was one tasty sandwich for $2.25. If
I had my druthers, I would Frankenstein together a Banh Mi with Saigon
Sandwich’s veggies, Baguette Express’ bread and meat from
Tapioca pearls conceal a mung bean interior. Dip these into a tangy, coconut milk dip to complete the effect. Deeeelish (but probably not everyone’s cup of tea.) Chubby thought these were just too strange and went of babbling something about needing a "fusion burrito." And he thinks my tastes are odd! Anyway, with all the good and cheap burritos in San Francisco, he ended up finding what he was seeking in Mill Valley. Check out his latest review of Avatar's Punjabi Burritos.
I was in the
mood for a greasy spoon today so I headed to Sausalito (but nowhere
near the tourists) to Fred’s.
This is the
sort of chow that you just can’t get anywhere but ‘merica.
If you want this basic kind of familiar breakfast food cheap and friendly,
Fred’s is a good bet.

What kind of twisted mind came up with this???
No wonder the youth
of today are combining tractor starter fluid with cold
medicine, straining it through a coffee filter and getting high. Put this
in the crib with junior and you’re bonsaiing a formative mind.
It’s such a
bonus when friends are also fab cooks.
I saw the twirling meat in the window of this clean little restaurant:
...and had to go
in and check it out.
Here it is before it got rolled up and placed on the grill:
The meat was plentiful but had a faintly grainy texture. The tomatoes, lettuce, onions, yogurt sauce and cucumber tied it all together for a satisfying protein experience.
Chubby gyrated over
to Golden Gate Bakery to grab a custard tart like the one
in his review.

For $2.25, who
wouldn’t be happy? I also got dessert wrapped in a banana
leaf. It’s slightly sweetened, glutinous rice steamed with a banana
in the middle. Sounds funky, but it’s delicious (and $1.)

Not my bag:
I have been road testing these reusable string bags for several months and I can't go back to the non string variety.
down to a small size, they don't get bits of onion skin collecting
at the bottom and they stretch out to accommodate a whole watermelon.
I regularly ask the checkers at the market what percentage of people bring
in bags and it's shockingly low.
They make their money back after a mere 140 uses (if you go to one of the places that credits you a nickel per use.) If you go to Whole Foods they give you a poker chip to put in one of the charity boxes so you can apply that princely sum to some obscure group who actually takes donations that don't cover the price of driving to get the donation. Anyway, that's not the point. You like trees, right? Okay, even if you're not hot on trees, you must like oxygen. Well, trees make it, so get some reusable bags.
Chubby said I was talking like a hippie and went to get some food out of a gas guzzling venue. Check out new his review of Mi Grullense.

I always drive
by the Cherry lady, but today, I decided to stop and check out
the goods. Rainiers and Bings. She gets them from Washington and sells
them out her car on Sir Francis Drake:
Chubby helped me polish
them off and went in search of something a little more
substantial. He wound up at Tartine.

Joe, status quo, and Picco:
I was at Trader Joe’s and found a new caffeine delivery system:
3mg of the wonder drug per drop. A cup of coffee can contain
between 40-180 mg of caffeine so I have to eat 14-60 of these little Go
pieces in the next 10 minutes. They’re pretty good, but I’m
not giving up on Peet’s yet.

I relish it.

bleakest imaginable hardship. Nobody would have children if they had to
do what these creatures do.
I don’t know
what they were thinking when they gave me my green tea maxi pad.
What is up with this? It looks like a recycled airline pillow (I wondered
what they were going to do with them when American Airlines announced
their discontinuation, now I know.)

The Blackberry bush is going all Audrey 2 on me. Last year the jam pots were going twice a week. This year it’ll be lots of blackberry cobbler, galettes and sorbet.
Food is love:
Chubby felt bad about
eating all the Laz so he made me dinner:
"I am was happy that Chubby seemingly likes Tabla as much as I do, although I think it is one huge step up from being described as 'hole in the wall'. Look out for a subtle name change soon - most likely to Tava - because the New York restaurant called 'Tabla' has apparently complained about the competition. Maybe that is because if you do a search for "Tabla dosa" on google, they don't come up tops.----"

a credit card:
Since when has cash
been such a freaky method of payment that 2 check stands
can’t accommodate it? Mr. French guy is going to go back to France
and say, “zee crazy Americaines, zey n’accept pas zer own

...is the best way to combine breakfast sausage from the Fatted Calf with Cowgirl Creamery cheese. It’s a miracle food, eat it hot, cold, room temp. It just waits for you in it’s deliciousness (unless Chubby gets to it first.) Lucky for me, Chubby decided to go to one of his favorite micro-eateries in Larkspur. Check out his latest review.

I donut know about this:
Are we teaching our
youth to run into the street while not paying attention to oncoming traffic
and rewarding them with sweets?
They are famous for their apple fritters, but they were out today so a glazed buttermilk bar and a chocolate dipped French twist had to do. Both were sufficiently donutty and delivered the necessary carboload to continue whinging about the odd procession of randomness unfolding before me. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it because it was bizarre:
Where else do you see Fat Bastard standins beside Political leaders and people doing Pilates on top of a truck? Well... maybe at the Pride Parade.

Fix up, look sharp:
Just got back from seeing Rize:
brilliant documentary with an unbeatable soundtrack and
cinematography like you’ve never seen in a doc. There are a couple
patches that lag, but it’s a great film worth seeing.
For dessert, M made
a sesame ice cream inspired by a visit to
il laboratorio del gelato.
Today I saw
a guy taking a cigarette break while wearing a “Livestrong”
bracelet. Huh? What exactly are you raising awareness of? Irony? Lack

really wanted the ultimate martyr trump card to play on her kid forever.

Becky Reed Citizen of the year:
Who is this
“Becky Reed”? I didn’t hear about any citizen
of the year vote. Also, it’s July 1st, what if Becky starts kicking
puppies and spitting on babies til December? This reeks of corruption,
old boy networks and back room deals. Also, whose money is being used
to finance this billboard campaign? All I’m sayin is that I don’t
think we’re talking about a level playing field here, Becky.
Dude, I’m sorry
that your employer is way too cheap to buy custom made
shirts, but bring a shirt to change into when you’re off duty. I
knew I shouldn’t have gone into Starbucks. Not only is it hypocritical
after slamming it the other day, but there was this schizoid guy talking
to the lady in the Starbucks logo like she was his gf.
He did a little dance for her too (which freaked out the little girl behind
him.) Ah, life in the city.
