Mum's the Velveeta

The guest did consider him(her)self "a bit high maintenance", which is why s/he declined the invite to begin with.

Helena fails for this idiotic, hypocritical advise.

Small cities' food specialties

I was going to say that...

Santa Maria tri-tip is one of the only regional specialty cuisines in Ca. It's the only one I can think of anyway...

Have you ever "trained" yourself to eat something?

I can't believe all the people who don't like olives!!! I can eat hand-fulls of the things - of any variety.

Anyway to answer the question at hand:


I hated mustard as a kid. HATED it. I really can't decide how it happened, but now I love a good hearty mustard. I think at some point I realized how close it is to horseradish.

I'm still not too fond of the impossibly yellow stuff from the squeeze bottle though...

Turkey Pad See Ew

Dammit!!! I just used up the last of my leftover turkey in a boring (but tasty) soup last night and now this morning I see this...

Oh well...
