  1. I've gotten from Encina Farms a few times--the quality is really excellent.
  2. After reading about the growing popularity of "ranch water", I decided to try it using one of the umpteen recipes out there. It's basically a margarita highball. The key ingredient is Topo Chico mineral water, which fortunately for me is easily obtainable at my local Grocery Outlet. All of the other ingredients can be tinkered with. Ranch Water 1 1/2 oz. blanco tequila 1 oz. lime juice 1/2 oz. orange liqueur (I used Cointreau) Topo Chico water Mix the tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur together in a Collins or highball glass. Add ice, then top up with Topo Chico.
  3. Smoked trout from Alioto-Lazio fishmongers on Dutch Crunch.
  4. "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, schlimiel, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated!"
  5. Shepherd's pie (properly made with ground lamb) with mashed sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. N added lots of vegetables, including leeks, carrots, turnips, and mushrooms. A warming meal for a cold snap.
  6. That Niners-Eagles game was painful. I turned it off after it went to 27-7.
  7. My mother used to have that book, along with many others in the series. I remember a few being held together with rubber bands.
  8. Great book. She's one of my two favorite cartoonists (Keith Knight is the other.) I was thrilled to get a chance to see her in person in Berkeley right before the pandemic, doing a "reading" with Patricia Marx for their book You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at a Time. Lots of ukelele playing too.
  9. Random fact: the elementary school a half block from me was renamed for Faith Ringgold after it became a magnet school.
  10. Roxy T. Cat says "My, what an exquisite batch of RG Vaqueros cooked with chipotles en adobo and topped with avocado and crema".
  11. Idiot landlord. Whoever it is should be forced to listen to '70s soft rock for the rest of their life.
  12. Got this recipe from the Punch website. I made it half strength. Al Sotack's Brainstorm 2 oz. Irish whiskey 1/2 oz. dry vermouth 1/2 oz. Benedictine Combine all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass, then stir to chill. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Express a lemon twist over the drink, then discard the peel.
  13. They're apparently this generation's Beanie Babies.
