And you thought my peanut-guacamole experiment was in bad taste

What! (I mean, Chipotle’s guac is pretty legit, but, what!) (I’m sticking with my peanut stuff.)

Sweet, now we never have to go to Clooney’s ever again!

Drink of the Week: Herbsaint shots

I’m not totally sure it was actually a good idea, but it was fun. Here’s info:

Herbsaint first appeared in 1934.[1] It was the creation of J. Marion Legendre and Reginald Parker of New Orleans, who learned how to make absinthe while in France during World War I.[1] It first went on sale following the repeal of Prohibition, and was unique in its category as an absinthe substitute, as opposed to a pastis.[1] Herbsaint was originally produced under the name “Legendre Absinthe”, although it never contained Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium). The Federal Alcohol Control Administration soon objected to Legendre’s use of the word “absinthe”,[2] so the name was changed to “Legendre Herbsaint”. The Sazerac Company bought J.M. Legendre & Co. in June 1949. Herbsaint was bottled at 120 proof and 100 proof for many years, but the recipe was modified in the mid-1950s, when Herbsaint began being bottled at 100 proof and 90 proof. By the early 1970s the 100 proof variation was discontinued, and the 90 proof version remains the predominant Herbsaint available today. In December 2009, the Sazerac Company reintroduced J.M. Legendre’s original 100 proof recipe as Herbsaint Original.[3]

The name Herbsaint originates from “Herbe Sainte” (Sacred Herb), the French/Creole term for Artemisia absinthium and except for the letter r is an anagram of absinthe. [link]

Omg I love anagrams.

Duvel and Campari over ice, twist of orange. (Why Aperol when you can Campari?)

Mission smorgasbord

This was my dinner last night. (I was pretty hungry.) Let’s go north to south:

  • Leftover squid ink noodles from Mission Chinese Food
  • Leftover carnitas super burrito w/ chips and guac from El Metate
  • Leftover Special Indian Pizza from Zante


I found a packet of cheese in the gutter

Thought shaming

Got this in my fortune cookie at Chino the other day and it’s still tripping me out.
