I want to build my own pizza/bread oven once I own some property I know I’ll be at for a while. In the meantime I hope to get this portable pizza oven. I sure hope it doesn’t cost $500.
Edit: Their Kickstarter listed the oven for £160 or $244 today.
Coke & tacos.
I want my tombstone to read “It was worth it” if I die from overeating pretzels and roasted garlic humus.
Last weekend I became sad in the grocery store when I realized that it could not satisfy my need for super salty and crispy Grippo’s pretzels. Why aren’t there more pretzel varieties? Why hasn’t the bar been raised?! I will have to order 3lb boxes of Grippo’s until then.
I finally had Jamaica Way today. Curried goat, yellow ride, sweet potatoes & pineapple. The spicy sauce was much better than the oxtail sauce I tried.
I don’t think you can rate tacos, just like you can’t rate pizza, because there are too many combinations and personal preferences.
I go to SATCO when I want a ground beef gut bomb and sunshine. I don’t like The Local Taco because service is confusing and not very friendly. The food tastes good but they lose points for not having any kind of traditional taco. Taqueria del Sol addresses The Local Taco’s shortcomings. The side patio is covered and heated but will be a great place to feel the breeze in a few weeks. I have yet to go to Mas Tacos. Taco Mamacita is overrated, overpriced, and a hassle. Oscar’s matches my taco expectations by providing cheap, yummy eats in a toddler friendly environment.
Today I drove to I Dream of Weenie for “hand crafted chorizo from Porter Road Butcher topped with jicama-tomatillo slaw, sour cream and avocado slices” and pumpkin chili. The sweet slaw, creamy avocado, & spicy meat was a great combination. The chili had 3 types of beans, bell peppers, and some fake ground “meat” for vegan friendliness. The pumpkin and spices barely came through but it was a very satisfying bowl.
The featured speaker at the Symposium, Alton Brown, was much more academic as he presented his method of whole hog cookery in his speech “Goin’ Whole Hog – Scientifically Speaking.” Brown’s speech was intended to be the basis of what he hoped to be the final episode of his long run of Good Eats series on Food Network. After doing all the research and the testing phase in preparation for shooting what he hoped would be his mic drop of a magnum opus, the episode was vetoed by the suits in New York who were apparently squeamish about showing America any food that still had eyeballs.
I need to find this video and plans.
Din Din Recommendations
My lady and I have one hour to get from Sylvan Park to our seats in The Ryman but wish to exchange tender for vittles on our way. Where do you recommend we eat?
Last night’s dinner. We opted for spring greens and Beth held the squash.
