May 9th 2009 9:28AM I'm in the process of converting 10 acres of land in TN from a forest to a "Bed & Bistro" with an organic farm.
May 9th 2009 9:09AM One of the things that I miss most about L.A. is not being able to drop in on Surfas! They had everything - EVERYTHING - you could possibly want, for every corner of the kitchen. Best of all, the prices weren't unreasonable. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful, too. No I'm not a shill, just a little homesick. At least I can still order online!
P. S. You didn't mention their on-site cafe, which served really good food.

Apr 30th 2009 2:40AM i don't know what you make your mayo from, but mine has eggs in it, and that's got vitamin E, among other nutrients. Ketchup has lycopene and yellow mustard has turmeric, which is an antioxidant. Olives are very high in salt and fat... beautiful things, don't get me wrong... but you seem to have omitted that omnipresent line "everything in moderation".
Mar 13th 2009 5:56PM I totally thought this blog entry's author, Max, was joking around by choosing three walnut recipes. Then i saw the others' comments about the walnut board, thinking they were in on the joke. Had to see the website for myself, and now I understand: y'all are nutty. ;-)

"I prefer Sushi when it's on a hook, used to catch other fish i can cook and eat."
Mar 10th 2009 9:05PM Everyone's friends are ill-mannered these days. It's the crush of information coming at us from 360 degrees, and the possibility that someone else might come along with a better offer for that timeslot, so they don't want to commit.
If it's that important to have a precise headcount, you should use the phone and call the people, one by one, and get an answer right then and there. Even that's not foolproof. This approach could cause the opposite to happen... they say that they will come, and then you make food for 40 but only 10 actually arrive.
It hard to be strict with friends when you really just want to show everyone a good time. My solution is to set some limits and create some urgency about it. Maybe you can say that you only have room for 20 and you wanted to make sure that, if they can make it, they'll be one of those 20. Maybe you can say that you're doing something special (after all you are!) and that you need an accurate headcount.

I could just drop one of these babies in my yard.
May 17th 2007 4:26AM Bob, come on, are you kidding yourself? This isn't about a food/drink item at all. (See Heidi #19!)
/F is really getting weak these days. Pro-god verses on coffee cups. ANTI-god verses on coffee cups. Faked photos of fish teeth in cans, and every third post is about a beverage.
So... Bob get the most points for posting provocative things that gets lots (and lots and lots) of comments, and Emily #14 gets points for pooping on what I believe, while exalting her own preferred form of deity. Nice.
May 16th 2007 3:58PM This has SO LITTLE to do with food, Bob, it strikes me as merely another one of your trolling-for-comments posts. But hey, I'll take the bait.
God-Schmod! As long as they don't start dissing the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I don't care what they say! I've been touched by His Noodly Appendage, and I am now a firm and adamant believer of Pastafarianism. RAmen!
Seriously - If you want to talk about offending people based on their religion/s, read anything by Richard Dawkins (especially 'The God Delusion") and get back to me. But this has precious little to do with food.
