  • A blog for the foodie crowd

    Came across this on a mailing list that I’m on: [Serious Eats](http://www.seriouseats.com/) has launched recently. It’s an interesting concept – chatter among a userbase, along with reviews/features/etc. from a more structured editing crew (don’t know if they’re paid, or if it’s freelance, or what…). Very nice. I’ve subscribed to their RSS feeds for now.

  • Last Night’s Dinner Theme: International Variety!

    After eating dinner last night, I realized we had an extremely international meal. For our main course, we had Frenched Rack of Lamb from New Zealand. To drink with the meal, we had red wine from France (Domaine des Homs from our favorite wine store: Le Savoir Faire). For dessert, we munched on some locally-grown […]

  • Alton Brown Book Signing!

    This evening, Alton Brown blessed Seattle with his presence at the Elliott Bay Book Company. Diann & I waited in line before his talk for about two hours, and waited afterwards for another hour or so to get some autographs. He was there to discuss I'm Just Here for More Food , his new book […]

  • chinese food isn’t the same…

    chinese food just isn't the same without the little take-out boxes. My favorite take-out chinese restaurant stopped using them in favor of little styrofoam things. And to top it off, I open the fortune cookie and read the fortune — they're trying to go high-tech. I kid you not, the fortune is: “You will have […]

  • speaking of meat eaters

    Now there are apparently meat breathers in the Houston area. Mmmm, bar-b-que.

  • vegetarians, red meat, etc.

    So, as Diann & I were driving home from the grocery store (yet another trip to the store while hungry, oops!) we decided that there should be more vegetarians in the world. This would mean more red meat and other good stuff for us. 😉 Random piece of info for the day: Silk Vanilla Soy […]

  • The latest…

    So, went to the Aggie basketball game this weekend. Took pictures. We lost though. But hooray for Tonia getting us seats two rows off the court. That was awesome. So was the homemade lasagna Diann & I made last night; too bad I forgot to bring some to the office to munch on today for […]
