    yesterday's lunch was a can of safeway's eating right turkey chili mixed with a can of campbell's fiesta nacho cheese soup plus a can of stewed tomatoes, spiked with four glugs of kona brewing's pipeline porter, a slosh of worchestershire sauce, some garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt and ground pepper, all over whole wheat spaghetti noodles.

    sandra lee was my model to follow in the kitchen, apparently. but my pantry chili tasted pretty good...just not as good as eric's turkey chili with black beans and jalapeno paste.
    superbia (pride), avaritia (greed), luxuria (lust), invidia (envy), gula (gluttony), ira (wrath) & acedia (sloth)--the seven deadly sins.

    nothing humiliates like the truth.--me, in conversation w/mixedplatebroker re 3rd party, 2009-11-11, 1213

Last time I saw Joe was earlier in November, a few days before he headed off to Hawai`i.

    In the past several years, he taught his recipe to a woman who was his only employee; she started there after he had health issues a few years ago. She has no idea if the shop will remain open much longer - Joe's widow hasn't decided yet.

    Obituary here.
    UPDATE: Closing at the end of the year. Truly the end of an era in Seattle's Pike Place Market. The man gave up a lucrative and successful career to follow his dream, but it dies with him.

    Took family to new downtown restaurant/pub, JJ Dolan's, on Bethel, across from Mark's Garage. Great pizza (that's all they serve) and a wonderful bottle of Italian wine! This place will definitely become my downtown hangout! San Francisco vibe, wide screen TVs, beautiful koa bar, occasional live music...love it! The 2 owners have lots of downtown restaurant experience; one come out of Murphy's and the other out of O'Tooles. Did I mention I loved the pizza?

    Trader Joe's Creamy Corn and Roasted Pepper soup with a handful of cooked, de-tailed shrimp. I've also used Costco's veggie potstickers in place of the shrimp. Oh so ono, either way.

    I joined the Geek Lunch today at Kakaako Kitchen and had an old favorite, 5-spice chicken with brown rice and tossed salad. Couldn't eat it all, and it wasn't all that like I used to think when it was a favorite of mine. Love the calamari salad but didn't want to do the salad or pasta thing in a crowd. I always get something stuck in my teeth and there I am trying to be personable!

    Previously boiled and cooled potatoes, skinned and thickly sliced and fried in goosefat (sorry) with garlic and parsley. Thought about adding a fried egg, but decided it was too perfect like that.

    Currently munching on a chicken cup of noddles, Baby Ruth candy bar and sipping on a bottle of Mountain Dew Code Red.

    Two of my friends have recently returned to Paris after honeymooning on Oahu. They are now feeling the cold and neither of them are much good at cooking. Have the handouts ready Suzie. (ps. I think they stayed at the Marriott on Waikiki but it was all very hush hush.)

    Tell them to come on down to the warmer southwest of the country...plenty of good food and goosefat, too.

    I was brought up on Goosefat in Brest until the age of Ten. Stayed from Nice to Hyeres and eventually was stationed in Marseilles where I tried to teach Navy 'Brats.'
    If you want to know anything about fish stew (which I'm sure you don't,) then give me a shout.
    Les pieds noirs taught me lots which they had brought from Algerique.
