hmmm, interesting. those are personal recommendations generated by a very specific algorithm.
thanks, Dumb Treads!
Last night we went out for sushi. Had a yam roll (which is always delicious), some vegetable maki, a couple pieces of avocado nigiri and a slightly different presentation of egg (which I will definitely be getting again).
Tonight I decided to try and make something out of whatever I could find in the garden, so we're having swiss chard sauteed with a bit of garlic, fried squash blossoms (some plain, a couple with chevre and herbs that looked good), maybe something to use a few of the hungarian wax peppers I picked, and Gardein done like chicken picatta. It should be interesting, since my wife usually doesn't care for Gardein, but requested that I attempt to make it in a way that she'd enjoy. Lately she's been really loving some of the white wine/citrus dishes I've done with seafood for her (I usually make myself something with tofu or Gardein and then scallops or fish for her), so I thought that might do the trick. Probably going to use a little extra batter from the blossoms to coat the cutlets for a little crispness. Not sure if we'll have any wine, since she's not a big drinker and we're hitting a local watering hole later.
Going to Rendezvous tonight in Memphis. Don't know if I'll be getting the famous dry rub ribs, more of a wet man myself.
my mac is telling me that it is 93 over here (NY) feels like i'm in a oven. tomorrow is meant to be 100!!!!!!!
It's days like this that make me wonder why I ever left L.A. (Although I did grow up in the Valley, where it can reach 105-110 this time of year.)
you know guys, last night when i got home and sat on the front porch with my campari to watch the sun set in the palm trees, i had to put on a sweater. that darned cool sea breeze. it was like someone turned the AC all the way up!
i just hate that.
The classic East Coast riposte: but you're missing the joy of having four seasons!
where'd you go to high school?
Granada Hills. Just like John Elway and, uhh, the guy who played Freddy in Nightmare on Elm Street.
I went to North Hollywood. Fuck you guys and your pools.
My mom is an LAUSD teacher so if a Granada administrator gets diarrhea I get an email from her claiming it as proof of the practical failure and ethical bankruptcy of the charter programs.
Pools? I don't even remember having pools. Granada Hills went charter after I graduated.
I grew up in North Hollywood--in a roach-infested apartment on Saticoy and Lankershim! Lived there between the ages of three and ten.
Damn, that is a fucking disgusting area.
Yes. But there was a sushi bar in the strip mall across the street, and apparently it's actually pretty good:
Way better than I was expecting.
