So Now I Have A Blog…

I’m kind of hard to understand. I like to be in charge but I hate making decisions. Spiritually I’m a Christian that prefers living on the dark side. Politically I’m a right that rationalizes the left.Musically I’m a deadhead that denounces all things deadhead (except the music). Socially I’m a hippie that digs war. Sexually I prefer women, but my best friend says that my description of the ideal woman best fits that of a 12-year-old boy. Go figure.

But this page is about food, and culinarily I think that ‘foam’ is for pussies.

Give me a dry-aged prime strip steak—saignant—with Pommes Darphin, a rarebit of grana white cheddar from the Saturday morning market in San Francisco, a half-dozen seared Italian frying peppers, a handful of onion rings from The Beacon. Give me some crusty, bubbly rolls from Charlie Trotter’s, and a Butterscotch Crème Brulée Napoleon from Citronelle.

No wine on the table. They made me give it up in rehab. But put lots in my demi-glace. Pour in half a bottle of merlot and reduce it to a sour, twangy syrup.Bring it up with reduced brown veal stock and black pepper. Get it bubbling and boiling violently and swirl in a little butter—or a lot of butter, but give me a real sauce! No fucking foam!

So now I have this blog.I must tell you that I resist even the word blog. Who’s going to read this crap anyway? I hate the word blog.B L O G! Where did this word come from?

Wikipedia (awesome site) says this…

A blog (an abridgment of the term web log) is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

We’re off to a great start.
