So why did you not email me to set up an appointment? I made a little starter kit for you.

I'll bet that crab would go well with some home made crusty sourdough.

throw-back saturday: old-style veal parmigiana

Dinner for 3, take out, was something like $10 with a loaf of bread, bent in half to put in the bag, a quart of soup,spaghetti and I believe a salad. dissection of the "veal" revealed a cube steak sort of thing. At the Telegraph/Shattuck location well drinks were 25 cents with multiple for doubles and triples. this in the early 70's. Somewhat more at the 23rd Street location in Richmond.

Grocery Outlet Oakland.

While browsing the wine aisles I saw a familiar face. "Hi Robaire."
Turns out he moved over in August. Anyone missed him in the Berkeley store?

My new favorite is a Canadian soup I bought at Grocery Outlet that said on the label "70% organic."

Since you asked. He then proceeded to show me his grits routine. As they were served to him he turned his head to the left, picked up the pepper shaker with his right and liberally dusted them with black pepper. "I know that they are going to show up eventually so I always disguise them." BTW he retired as a 4 star admiral.

I will always remember what the Captain of my submarine said to me when I condemned the boxed grits after we had been underwater for about 5 weeks and little black crawly things appeared. "Son, you"re a Northern boy, aren't you? Do you know anything about grits?". "No sir I don't". "Put them back on the menu." Aye aye Captain."

ISO Good Banh Mi in the East Bay

My memory of Cam Huong at 702 International was that upon ordering one of the lovely young ladies took a leg/thigh from their supply and deboned it for your sandwich. Have they changed?

Costco: Xmas 2014

I assume the Brillo,not the steel wool, is part of it. There were some others I think are new for the holidays but I couldn't find the prices. So far no La Tur or similar. Plenty of Stilton, soon to be reduced in price as it reached its best but date and instantly go bad.
The Spanish ham has been there for a while.
