Yee Haw! (still not a good foreign policy)

I’m surprised the “rabbit” didn’t need an ambulance from my weight on its back. Obviously it’s fake but the jackalope is the main attraction at this bar named after the mythical creature. Given how crappy the service and dirty the tables were, … Continue reading

My first attempt at “fancy” cooking in a while

Yesterday, it was my turn to resolve dinner because Jennifer got a one-time gig to administer CV-19 vaccinations; I think she inoculated over 300 people too. I wanted to try something different instead of takeout. Plus I’m trying to impress … Continue reading

Not cold enough here for these, thankfully

I thought it was funny because Austin still has pockets of agriculture that aren’t far away from the city limits. Given all the cattle farming or is “ranching” a verb? Whatever, due to cows, seeing these bales rolled up in … Continue reading

Just in time for season two

Well, this was something I didn’t notice in the two teaser trailers for The Mandalorian. I would’ve bought it if the little green “yodas” were petrified marshmallows. Not to humble-brag but even as a kid, I never liked those so-called marshmallows … Continue reading

Crappy 2020 summed up, September 2020 addendum

Who in their right mind devised this? Yogurt lacks the viscosity to be a soda! Sure there’s Gogurt which I doubt exists or sells well anymore. However, this? Eww! What’s more puzzling is the flavor. Mint? It must be something … Continue reading

My first trip to The Yard

Jennifer took me to this new place at the Domain for my birthday called The Yard which gets its name from that milkshake song. According to to her, the people who founded this small chain won the competition on Shark Tank. … Continue reading

Pasta found in the Netherlands that’s special!

As you can see from the label, whenever you buy this brand/package of pasta, you must give five ravioli to me. I prefer them to be cooked and covered with an Alfredo sauce. A chicken-based broth is acceptable too. In … Continue reading

My friend Amy and I went to a Big Night dinner!

Italian food is my favorite cuisine and I think it would be even I were zero percent Italian. After my one-year exile in Raleigh-Durham, I gained a much greater appreciation of it through a great restaurant called il Sogno (The Dream) because … Continue reading

Ummm…not even close!

American food may have many shortcomings given our obesity, poor health and probable constant fatigue. But we do not, ever, EVER, package hot dogs in a can. Those gross little “vienna sausages,” Somara loves which make me want to hurl. … Continue reading

Richard Jeni would’ve been proud

The late comedian in the title used to a routine about a bachelor chef cooking show featuring macaroni and cheese, a staple for unmarried men. One joke was how cheap and mandatory the foodstuff was because the character purchased this … Continue reading

1988: A staple for my first Summer on my own

As the Summer of 2018 winds down, I tried this canned “delicacy” again because it’s what kept me alive most days in the Summer of 1988. I hadn’t eaten this since I was a kid and it was rarely ever … Continue reading
