Let’s face it, a flour tortilla isn’t all that different from a donut when it comes to carb count. So I don’t think I could honestly tell you that this breakfast recipe is healthy. The thing is, I really love breakfast burritos, and if I’m going to eat one, I really want it to be somewhat healthier than they usually are. Especially the highly processed ones you find in the freezer section. So here is my recipe for a sorta healthy breakfast burrito that also tastes great. I make ten at a time, freeze them, and warm them up in the microwave in the morning. Continue reading “Sorta healthy frozen breakfast burritos.”
Let me start this one with a solicitation. Please add your own geekiest thing here in the comments. Tens of readers come to this blog every month, yet very few people comment. I want to know what your geekiest thing is so consider this post open mic night at GLD.
I have a lot of geeky friends. I mean, I also have friends who *think* they are geeky, but they are really more geek-lite. Some of the friends I am talking about use command prompts. Their idea of a new-to-market product is some guy’s vaporware idea on Kickstarter. They go to Comic-con… dressed up.
Sometimes, I’d like to think I am one of these super geeks. Other days, I realize I’m more in that geek-lite column. But every once in a while, I realize that I do, or own something that is really geeky. Here’s an example:
With an Amazon gift card burning a hole in my pocket this week, I ordered a new USB DAC/Headphone amplifier for my computer. Out of curiosity, my wife asked what it was for. As I searched for an explanation, I thought to myself, “this has to be the geekiest thing I now own.” That made me think, “I wonder what the geekiest thing some of my geekiest friends own is?” And now, I bet you’re asking the exact same question. Am I right? Continue reading “Your geekiest thing”
Last January, I set a goal to average 10,000 steps (~5 miles) a day for 2015. Assuming I don’t completely blow off today, I will have accomplished it. A big part of making my step goal was walking to and from the train between both my work and my home. Sometimes I took the water taxi or a bus once I was downtown, but I tried to at least walk one way. Continue reading “These boots are made for walking”
If you’re going to blow up your carb count on a single meal, I think it should be brunch. If you’re doing brunch right, you’ll have slept in, skipping breakfast altogether. You’ll even be a little late for lunch. Brunch is best around 1:00. It’s only really called brunch because eggs and bloody marys are usually involved.
I’m a big fan of many classic brunch dishes. Biscuits and gravy, huevos rancheros, and chicken and waffles are three of my favorites. Lately I have been thinking of how I could make them into a single dish. Continue reading “Jalapeno cornbread waffles with green chili chicken gravy. It’s what’s for brunch.”
My friend Sara is moving to San Francisco. Since I lived in the Bay Area for a year and have spent a few other years working for Bay Area based companies, I thought I would share some of the things I think she might like.
Tacos and whiskey at Azucar Lounge
This is the best place I’ve been in SF for Tacos and Whiskey. It’s more of a fantastic cocktail place with great food than a fantastic restaurant with great cocktails so plan accordingly. Continue reading “Top ten things to do in San Francisco that my friend Sara will like.”
