Post #48: Pancakes


Post #48: Pancakes.

I am writing an Annual Report. And at the moment, it sometimes feels as though I’m not even present in my own life, but I’m achieving things, so it all evens out. Happy days!

I eat pretty poorly when I am flat chat, so thank christ for Food Dates with the Canadian! Otherwise all of the pictures below would feature pancakes and poppy-seed bagels.

So here’s my week in food:

When I can’t decide what to make for dinner (or I just can’t be arsed), I opt for pancakes. Currently, we’re on a Krusteaz Blueberry craze. And they taste so much better when you add food coloring. If I had my way, I’d eat breakfast for all my meals. And, yes, I am six years old.

Version 1: Green Blueberry Pancakes.

They just taste better.

Version 2: Pink Blueberry Pancakes

And yes, Mum. I’m taking my vitamins!

Tasty Wasabi Tofu Curry with a side of black rice from my new local, the Unicorn. If I were all about using ridonkulous words, ‘amazeballs’ would be my word of choice for this dish. But I am not, and I don’t. So it’s just damn tasty. YUM!

The Unicorn is my new favourite place…

Last weekend, the Canadian and I enjoyed a culinary walkabout in the Inner Richmond. Did you know the area is actually named for Richmond in Melbourne? True story.

Rainbow Salad at Burma Superstar. Inner Richmond, SF.

Burma Superstar was pretty good. The Tofu Tower was really tasty, the Rainbow Salad was good, and the tofu curry left much to be desired.

Tofu Tower: two thumbs up.

Just down the road, we stumbled upon an amazing bakery: Schubert’s. Before we had even walked through the door, we’d gotten the low down from an exiting customer on his ‘to die for’ list. By the time we left, we were doing the same.

So. What’s in your belly?
