Well! I’ve returned from a splendid weekend road trip. The agenda: eat, explore, eat, ask ourselves if we’re hungry yet, eat whether or not we are, try surfing, snack, eat, drink, snack. As usual, would you care for a few cell phone photos?
Traveling with like-minded people (in this case, a good friend/former roommate) means that lunch stops never involve anything with a drive-thru. Especially not when one is in San Jose–options abound! If you have time to be choosy, be choosy. In my book, every stomach rumble on the road is an opportunity, not a chore. An opportunity to eat something, like, say, hot stone bibimbap at SJ Omogari.
It’s like Korean paella (plus egg and hot sauce!), and I’m pretty sure I could eat this every day.
Well! I am back from BlogHer Food ’12 in Seattle.
This is my excuse for eating everything, everywhere, all day every day, when I travel (not that I need one). Inspiration! Recreating favorite, memorable dishes from far away… It’s like a time/space machine. There’s always something to learn from people who, uh, actually cook for a living.
What I’m saying is, nice job, Gabrielle Hamilton’s sous chef at Prune in NYC. I want to be like you when I grow up, and this is me trying. Also, thanks for lunch.

She lives! Which is a small miracle, considering how much I ate in New York. It’s obscene and I don’t want to talk about it. (Except I do!!!) Naturally, I want to play show and tell. Ready? Let’s do this, good people.
Fairly recently, I decided to try to post here every other day, and I was doing pretty well, but then, next thing I knew, I was on vacation. I don’t know how these things happen! So there’s that. BUT! I have photos.
This wasn’t the usual kind of getaway. Normally, food is a big part of the deal. San Francisco, there’s no one like you. And Portland! Oh, Portland. But this time, Boyfriend and I went calmer, outdoorsier, offseason-ier, so we drove up to the majestic Redwoods to relax.
