My wife is a vegetarian and holiday dinner’s usually suck for her. Her sister in-law isn’t the wisest and as a result she ends up with fucking mashed potatoes, corn and shitty mushroom gravy out of a can. This year we didn’t want to visit anyone for this bullshit jesus day(I’m trying to get that shit out of my life completely) instead we stayed home and I decided to boss up with a vegetarian meal. In doing so I found a recipe for some roasted garlic gravy and tried it. I was kind of amazed at myself at how well this turned out. (more…)

Today I ran into an old lady at 19th and Mission selling pasteles and papusas out of her little shopping cart. I copped two pasteles for 2 bucks. These are kind of like empanadas, hell some people probably call them that. I’m not all up on my central american shit but whatever basically it’s a fried tube of awesome filled with carnitas and vegetables, sold in a sandwich bag with a handful of pickled cabbage and carrots. I’ve had these a few times at El Savodorian restaurants, they are fucking banging. Some yucatan/mayan restuarants make somethings similar, just kind of depends on who is doing the cooking. I wanted to cop some of this lady’s papusas but I didn’t have time for that shit. If you see these cop, they are tasty as fuck.
Oh man I don’t give a fuck about the holidays. Christmas is worthless jesus shit for kids, thanksgiving is a celebration of bullshit too. This time of year just sucks because my tv wants to sell me on snowglobes full of lies. The only thing I actually like about the holidays is fucking Tamale Day, it’s the best shit in the world. I don’t know how you can go wrong with it. Get your friends together, a lot of beer, masa and multiple tubs of pork fat. How can that not be a success? (more…)
8 quarts of lard, 35 lbs of masa, and hella beer
12 hours later this happened (more…)
So a day late and a dollar short as usual, but yesterday was National Bloody Mary Day. Fortunately, I got the jump on these TGIF douchebags and celebrated a week earlier at a relatively new spot – Logan @ the Heights
Not the greatest restaurant out there, but their bloody menu is unreal. After a strait up greygoose, hot bloody mix, and applewood smoked bacon pint at the bar, our table was ready and I was in good enough spirits to go all out on my next round. Behold my favorite new bloody.
Grey Goose, crab, shrimp, bacon, clamato, worschestershire, tabasco, horseradish, pickle, celery, olive, and lime. Nuff said.
Warning – multiple bloodies will just cause you to start ordering “real” mixed drinks at 11 am, which in turn may or may not become an afternoon of Wii bowling coupled with a case of beer.
Discovered a new drink over at the 3rd Street Liquor Store on Saturday (3rd and Newcomb if you want to make a visit). For those of you who do not understand why these little bottles of alcohol are packaged up in sandwich bags I suggest you read this post I did on my own blog because I’m not going to bother explaining all that shit right now. Anyways we copped a few of these new joints. The first of which is posted above, it is known as The Money Maker and obviously it’s going to fuck you up. The ingredients are as follows:
1 Green Apple Smirnoff Ice
2 Smirnoff Apple Twists
1 Bicardi Big Apple
Charlies in the Fillmore has the Bad Apple 2, it’s similar but with a bitchass wine cooler. I’m not a fan of these apple joints, they taste like shitty old jolly ranchers and alcohol. Fuck that shit I’m not a goddamn 14 year old girl. I don’t want to drink candy. The Cutty Bang is still by far my favorite of any of these drinks. That shit is classic.
There is also a drink called The Obama. At the moment I don’t have a decent photo but it’s coming soon. The obama is fucked up!
