Sometimes you need to bake a loaf of Italian bread. 

Once in a while the stars align and your awkward self takes a back seat to a nice loaf of Italian bread. Flour, yeast, olive oil, salt. That’s it.

Trust me, this was good. 

@OberonsTavern in Ashland Oregon. Excellent Grilled Honey Bacon Apple and Cheese sandwich with a delicious drizzle of house made Balsalmic vinegar, luckily, paired with an intense Chocolate Stout from @RogueAles The entire experience, too edible to wait for an awkwardly timed food selfie. 

Tonight’s sushi,

was a complete disaster in the food selfie sense. In the sushi sense it rocked! Fish and rice was ordered, Sushi Bistro on Balboa delivered and eaten. Not an image in sight.  Yet an awkwardly timed photo was managed well after the dishes were done. We supplied the sticks, glad we didn’t turn down the soy, ours was almost empty. 

  

Bark scape. Alien scenes of flavor in orbit.

Pulled Pork in sight after 7 hours at 225 degrees creating a landscape imaged from above. Populated by paprika and chili flakes this other worldly view of flavor and fullness was worth the wait. Typically, the roasting of the pork shoulder and chopping up of the cole slaw took precedence over images and this meal was a memory without an utter lack of photos.  Served up on Hawaiian Sweet Bread King’s Hawaiian! Yes! with pickles from a very terrestrial source, Vlasic Stackers…is this stork supposed to be Groucho, or what?  Pork Shoulder purchased at my favorite butcher, Guerra’s Meats in San Francisco.  at Taraval and 15th in the Sunset.  #food #foodies #foodselfies

Just another case of bad timing and an awkward food selfie is born.
