I really like this cheese named Delice De Bourgogne. As a matter of fact, I am sitting at my desk at work eating a block of it with a knife. Very good stuff. Very filling. Lots of calories to power my brain at work.
Levi was kind enough to treat me to lunch at a restaurant named “Lemonade” in Venice, CA today. Below is a quick video of their food selection- it’s excellent for both vegetarians and for meat eaters!

Today was “Seafood Friday” at the Old Country Buffet in Factoria, so B and Sae and I hit it up. “Seafood Friday” meant that they were serving clam chowder AND “Baked Fish”. No specification on what exactly the “Baked Fish” was, but my guess is herring.
I hadn’t been to the Old Country Buffet since I was about 11 years old.… read more “OCB: Factoria Old Country Buffet”

Since none of the usual group could make our Monday night dinner last night, I invited a bunch of other friends instead.‚ We made pork loins on the grill with apple & bacon on top, roasted asparagus and grilled fingerling potatoes.‚ Good stuff and it was fun to share some culinary joys with other people.
My high school friend Mark and his wife Keri came up for a late lunch at my place today.‚ We had pugliese bread with Cambalooza triple brie cheese and olive bruschetta for our appetizer and grilled blue marlin with red peppers for the main course and roasted asparagus spears as a side.‚ The Rody’s brought white chocolate fudge and peanut brittle for dessert.‚ We had a good time and talked all the way up till my flag football game at 6:30 pm.
