    Breakfast! 2018

    Sliced toasted bread rubbed with a garlic clove, then rubbed with sliced ripe tomatoes so that their juices and flesh permeate the bread, then drizzled with extra-virgin California olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper

    The Egg Sandwich

    Probably not, and ditto for proper bagels.

    The Egg Sandwich

    I have to train the deli I go to here in San Francisco to make them plain: bread, egg, butter, salt and pepper.

    Breakfast! 2018

    Apricot upside-down cake. It's awesome served with crème fraîche. I already had two slices. (as you can see, I prefer non-egg-based breakfasts whenever possible)

    4th of July

    Hamburger with lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, pickles, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce Potato salad with mint, scallion and lemon As you can see, the burger was the opposite of "dry". These were pretty good.

    Many thanks for your input but we won't be doing this because it's (1) technically illegal per SF's fire codes and (2) the property isn't ours; we're renters and our landlord has final say. At the moment, he's not here...and we're not going to bother him on his vacation just so I can cook a burger. I understand you mean well but in this specific instance, this is really unhelpful advice. B prefers them broiled anyway, so the above is moot.

    I've decided to make hamburgers and potato salad this year. It's my first time making a hamburger. Most recipes call for pan-frying but we'll probably broil ours, mostly because our smoke alarm is sensitive. Even then, we'll probably have to open the windows just to be safe. Pix later.

    Cookbooks 2018

    I have the Hachisu cookbook on Japan and Shaya's volume. Will probably get the one on Islam in the near future as well, or more likely for Xmas. I've been meaning to cook from the Japan book but I keep getting distracted by my preference for Italian and Mediterranean....so many choices, not enough stomach space.
