Dinner at Wurstkueche in the Arts District. I had the Filipino Maharlika with caramelized onions and spicy pepper (excellent) and Jason had the Sun Dried Tomato and Mozzarella with sweet peppers and sauerkraut (not as excellent but I warned him before he ordered). Jason really liked the fries but I thought the were not Belgian enough to be called such.
Breakfast at the Sea Ranch Lodge: red pepper and goat cheese omelette, chicken-apple sausages, lovely rosti, and sourdough toast.
This is what I imagine was the cutting edge of california cuisine in the early 90s. Artful and delicate, but not exactly artisan or homemade. For example, the jam offered is of the little pots found in business hotels variety and the coffee is served in airline-style low ceramic cups from your own regular sized thermos pot. Everything is a bit underseasoned.
my first cooked meal in my new apartment: curry sauteed carrot, cabbage, and spicy italian sausage over rice. i realized that this may be the first time in years when u haven’t had fish sauce to finish a stirfry. i’m useless without my condiments.
i haven’t made pasta sauce in a while but i made a big batch with mushrooms and sweet italian sausage. it ended up lasting a really long time because it was too mushroomy for jason, even though he’s the one who bought that quantity of mushrooms.
i had it over rice when the pasta ran out, which is delicious.
