Rambling: Rambling

I'm overdue for a post. I was doing so well, too. For a little while, there. So I ramble.


Rambling requires a topic. I don't seem to have a topic. I'm thinking about ice cream. And the fact that St. Cupcake in Portland has stopped selling cupcakes. Well, mostly stopped. As I read it, one of their other stores will eventually serve a very (very) limited selection of cupcakes.

On the other hand, Blue Star Donuts is good. Really good.

On the other other hand, I'm supposed to be reducing sugar and carbs again.

To continue with joyfully destroying one's health at Portland restaurants, Tilt has astoundingly good bacon. I don't think they serve it as bacon; I seem to recall that it came in a sandwich and was so perfect that I extracted it from the sandwich for maximum bacon focus. There's also the praline bacon at Screen Door. And the maple bacon donut at Blue Star, which I think is better than the maple bacon donut at Voodoo Doughnut.

Also, the charcuterie at Gruner. And the charcuterie at Little Bird. And the marrow bones at Little Bird.

I'm sure that Portland has green food. I don't eat much of it. Except for the sliced fried okra at Bollywood Theater. And the strawberry balsamic ice cream at Salt & Straw next door contains fruit. That's health food, right?


I feel fat.

That is all.

    I laughed so hard I nearly spit out my coffee!

  2. Yay! I like making people laugh. :)

  3. Haha - I always extract bacon from a roll for 'maximum bacon focus' - and also to perform a de-rinding operation as necessary. That's always assuming I didn't put the bacon in there myself in the first place.

  4. Yo, Vanessa! Yes, bacon deserves center stage. Unless the competition is crispy poultry skin.
