I think calling American Chinese fake Chinese food is overkill.


When you eat Mexican food you expect it to come from Mexico. Same with Chinese food. For instance there is no evidence a burrito was every in Mexico until recently. The word burrito means 'little burro' in Spanish. You can find it in the larger cities in Mexico now because so many tourists are asking for it. We have something in Michigan called the wet burrito. It's a burrito on a platter covered in dark red enchilada sauce with cheese on top and they put it in the oven to melt the cheese. When I got the California in1976 they had never heard of it and had no idea what I was talking about.

Had lunch at the Silver Salmon Grille in Astoria, Oregon yesterday.

Clam chowder and cheese bread to start, and a Cajun dish, Chicken Tchoupitoulas (Pronounced Chop-a-too-las) as the entree.

Pan-seared natural chicken breast is served on a mixture of pan-roasted potatoes with mushrooms and Andouille sausage. Topped with a Mornay sauce and served with market vegetables .

Dinner was my first Smashburger and fries at the food court of the much maligned Ilani casino.

Polished off an apple fritter and apple turnover from two different bakeries later at night (cannabis-fueled munchies).

that Cajun dish sounds wonderful. The only thing I ate yesterday was a half a bag of kettle corn. I was planning on eating dinner but yesterday was my wifes last day of work so we celebrated her retirement with a few too many cocktails. by the time we got home i was not in the mood to cook and that bag of kettle corn was calling my name.

My standard RV dinner that is easy when I feel like cooking
Steak, potatoes and broccoli
Broccoli I cook 4 portions in a small oven 350 15min.
Store it in a storage bag for easy reheating
Potatoes, cut up 4 portions and cook on a pan and store in a storage bag.
So when hungry, cook the steak on my grill and heat up some brocoli and potatoes.
Sometimes add fresh green onions to the potatoes as I'm reheating.

Otherwise get local takeout.

The switched the ingredients around on my lunch menu and it now includes avocado toast. This is so easy to make and so good. Just a mash-up an avocado mix in a little lime juice and spread it on toast. Some pink Himalayan salt and fresh ground pepper and you will love it. Himalayan salt is a little less salty for some reason then sea salt. Although also come from the ocean, the Himalayan salt comes from an ocean that existed millions of years ago.

I wish I could swallow that, I love Avocado anything. And they are pretty inexpensive here. I may have to try some more Guacamole?

That's what this basically is, guacamole. Has the same consistency as baby food. Avocados are expensive here, a buck a piece at Walmart is cheap.

I eat hard-boiled eggs everyday the absolute best way to make them is in the pressure cooker. Put in the eggs add one cup of water set to cook for 5 minutes and when it shuts off let it sit for 5 minutes and you're done. Move the eggs to a bowl full of cold water. They peel flawlessly every time, you can cook up the four dozen of them at once.

Met wifey for lunch at Zoe. Greek themed. Had some dozen slices of gyro meat, large Greek salad, mountain of home fries with extra fried onions, pita bread, bowl of tzatziki. Slathered salad in the oil based Greek dressing sitting on the table. Ate maybe 40% of the mess. Ate perhaps another 40% for dinner. Won’t take a genius to figure out what breakfast is tomorrow. It’s $22 and truly lasts for 3 meals for me. I am NOT a small eater!

Wifey had the ‘special of the day’, a double bacon double cheese double burger. I did get to eat a lot of bacon from her plate.

Just looked at their menu. Reasonable prices because it's in Buffalo. That exact same menu in New York City would be three times that much. They serve an ambitious variety of food on the menu. Their kitchen must be a madhouse hey.
