Not much to write, here's a trio of photos that I find somewhat amusing:
In case they're planning a California Burrito museum, I've got an exhibit ready for them.
This photo is a couple of years old.....I don't even remember where this was from.
You can tell we've been spending way too much time at Northgate Market.....we started checking out the various teas, which seems to cure just about anything.
Except for maybe what you'll get if you use this as instructed:
Really? You're actually proud that this compliments MSG and Chicken boullion? But wait, I actually know a couple of Pho places where this might be an improvement.
Here's a couple of things I noticed in passing:
I've twice noticed this at the parking bump in the parking lot in front of Tan Ky Mi Gia:
Which god is this for?
Like I said, we've been spending way too much time in Northgate Market. I noticed this maguey root shaped like an heart.
I was tempted to buy it....but it wasn't Valentine Day, nor do I really know what to make with it, except pulque. Any ideas for the next time we go shopping there?
On the day I bought the antelope, I got a nice veal rib chop:
I seasoned it fairly heavily then seared it off....I forgot how fast veal cooks and really had to slam on the brakes, but it turned out really nice.
Even the Missus had a couple of bites!
We had a couple of days of cooler weather a week ago....now it's back in the high 80's! Anyway, it was time to start looking for stuff like baihe and making stuff like this.
I did see fresh chanterelles at Nijiya, but they aren't very fragrant and too firm...perhaps it's too early in the season yet? Hopefully we'll get a couple of good deliveries of it this year.
Anyway, that's it. I hope everyone is having a great week!
