A&W Canada Beyond Meat Burger

Beyond Meat

No, I didn’t go vegan or Soylent (which is made from people, so ick). A&W Canada (which is entirely independent of the American chain with the same name, and which, unlike its American namesake, has a corporate stance on improved animal welfare with third party verification in its supply chain) has been making a bit […]

Miso Hungry

I can tell that I’m getting old because apart from constantly suppressing the urge to yell “get off my lawn, you kids!”, my taste in movies has started trending into documentaries. I already scribbled about Jodorowsky’s Dune, but a recent one combined documentary with food interest, Tim Delmastro’s travelogue and dieting experiment Miso Hungry. Me, […]

Haw-Di-I Bull Head "Original" BBQ Sauce

Water spinach

It appears that someone doesn’t like my writing about Cheetos. In the past I would have ID’d the IP address and written a reply which would have ended with “… and the horse you rode in on”, but I’m above that now, so I’ve only deleted the narrow-minded comment and will stick with saying “I […]

Chinese food

I’m back baby! Yes, after the election of the Cheeto, I changed select service providers to European ones and brought down the server to harden the software. It’s not like the NSA has this site on the list of to-dos, but given the Vault 7 data burps and the subsequent wannacry and petya issues, it’s […]

Year of the Monkey

Happy Lunar New Year! That would be the good one. Today kicks off the Year of the Monkey (猴), or more specifically, the Year of the Fire Monkey. Depending on the circles that one runs in, it’s either supposed to be a rollercoaster because the Monkey is lively, but I’ll look to 孫 悟 空 (Sun Wu-kong;  […]

Cucumber

This is the Spiky Indian cucumber (Cucumis anguria), a varietal that my fancy vegetation supplier Fanny Beaudin is currently experimenting with. It’s a cucumber. Tastes like one too.

Xmas Eve

Hey! It’s Xmas Eve! While I am using the correct spelling and pronunciation, we are at least very fortunate that we are at least 780 years before the eventual appearance of Robot Santa. That’s pretty good because as I still can’t run particularly fast, I wouldn’t get too far. Xmas Eve on the Big Croissant […]

American Thanksgiving again

It’s American Thanksgiving again! As I’ve said before, this apparently the most important holiday south of the 49th. Honestly I would have guessed Xmas (aka the holiday that got moved to December because early Christians needed something that would replace the gambling, rampant overeating and drunkenness that was the Roman holiday of Saturnalia), but I’d […]

Vegetables

In spite of the various meat postings I am not anti-vegetable, and do believe that vegetables have a place on the table apart from a fine fine supporting role as garnish. My father discovered an organic u-pick farm last year and has been taking advantage as the interesting vegetables are becoming large enough for harvest. […]

Year of the Horse

Happy Lunar New Year! That would be the good one. Today kicks off the Year of the Horse (馬 午), or more specifically, the Year of the Wood Horse. It’s an important year for me for a couple of reasons, but the now-ended Year of the Snake was more of a rollercoaster than anticipated so it’s […]
