The menu lists them as "Honey Apple Prawns, coated in a sweet mayo paired with five spice crisped apple" - wonder if you could riff off that.

I could rip that off.

Things that attracted my attention at the FFS for the couple of hours I was there today.

Dropped in to Trader Jo's which is about a block and half from my hotel. Mike checked me out - we had a lovely chat.

 

IMG_4151.thumb.jpg.89677cc64b68ef743f35e413810e72f9.jpg

 

They have their own brands of single malt!

Here's my haul from Trader Jo's - dinner tonight was corn chips with salsa - binned the guac cause it didn't appeal. Going to work on the wine when it chills a bit. Along with an nice cup of tea with some milk.IMG_4152.thumb.jpg.370b12553ade89a98d3bf5d452ed4812.jpg

 

Here's my haul from the FFS.

If I'm not mistaken Midnight Moon is available near here.  What did you think of it?

 

Loved it!

Midnight Moon! It was part of my last haul from the Cheese Monger, is really a beautiful cheese worthy of international fame.

My breakfast 

 That is one lovely looking pear. 

 How was the green cheese with the organic coconut cream? It doesn’t sound all that appetizing.

It was actually quite nice - liked it better than the other with the honey.

Met up with @alanamoana and we wandered off to see the Feve production facility. We were a little early so we stopped at an interesting pottery producer that is adjacent to the Tartine facility (which I forgot to take pics of). This picture is for @patris to admire the glaze!

Back to the FFS at about noon - a few random pics. Love the BBQ sauce fountain!

Pic with a satisfied EZtemper customer that I approached at the show last year. Says he can't live without it!

Cocktails with @mebinsf Michael of Michael's Chocolates. I had two.

You can see the G&T of Michael's friend behind my Brother's Perryman.

Michael suggested the Eureka in the Castro and his hubby Curtis met up with the 3 of us.

 

IMG_4179.thumb.jpg.eebea9fd6528d71deffd4f4d97c4d598.jpg

 

Caipirinha for me.

 

IMG_4182.thumb.jpg.3c5e1ead9de02a378afcf2e61d2b6a1d.jpg

 

Something with Cucumber for Michael's friend - have forgotten the name of the drink. 

 

IMG_4183.thumb.jpg.d9d970321ab3d8d3713dc204ecad6e31.jpg

 

Two of us had the fried chicken.

Tritip 

 

IMG_4187.thumb.jpg.37c5fdba56b365bdd6c6f5ee691fd23a.jpg

 

Gumbo with rice on the side!

Saw this lovely installation on the uber back to the hotel. 

 

So you can see the reason that I didn't post my meals yesterday was attributable to the 3 drinks I had! That's about 2 over my limit - and the reason I posted breakfast twice.

I was hoping someone would have meat loaf, so I could see what a $21 meat loaf entree looked like. I love me some meat loaf, but...

There's no such thing as a $21 meat loaf entrée in my world. The only way I'd pay $21 for a meat loaf plate is if it came with a steak on the side. :D

 Perhaps they hide foie gras inside it.

Oil spot glazes if I'm not mistaken - gorgeous!

I must shamefully admit that that wouldn't sweeten the deal for me at all.
