I have been watching this fight over the past week or two and, while I love the activist side of San Francisco at times, this is a classic example of people with WAY too much time on their hands/people that need to shut the f*ck up.
As Kevin Montgomery puts it, “Seems like a whole lot of bullshit for a harmless sign that has been visible for decades….”
Why is it that all of the ‘retail’ locations of the rather large financial institution that I work for will be closed on Monday in observance of the President’s Day holiday yet all of us in corporate functions do not get the day off?
Wyatt--bread pudding recipe too long for the form. Here's a shortcut--I adapted this recipe to use chard (which I also had in surplus) instead of the arugula. I probably never measured the amount of chard I used (I just used up what I had) and because I'm originally from Wisconsin, I probably used more cheese. This is a fantastic food blog--I get recipes here all the time and they never fail. The roasted garlic vinaigrette is a recent fave. Bon appetit! I am jealous of your food box with a foot of snow outside my door! http://www.lottieanddoof.com/2011/01/arugula-bacon-gruyere-bread-pudding/#more-5754
This looks SO delicious! I’m going to prepare this for me and Jen this Sunday. I’ll post pics. Hoping mine looks as good as this one:
Happy to oblige! 1st up:
Swiss Chard Risotto Soup
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup yellow onion – medium dice
2 bunches swiss chard – 1/2 inch strips
6 to 7 cups chicken stock
3/4 cup arborio rice
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
In a stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the chard; cook and cover for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken stock bring to a boil and add the arborio rice. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is cooked. If the soup is too thick, add more stock. Add the parmesan cheese and season with s and p. Garnish with additional parmesan cheese.
Thank you! Looking forward to making this soon. I’m responding now to share the recipe with anyone else that is interested.
It’s been almost a week since the giant box of produce arrived and here’s where things stand (because I know everyone has been waiting with baited breath for an update):
2 Haas Avocados - Gone! Used in some guacamole for a party this past weekend
2 Yellow Onions - Still here but not all that perishable; will likely end up caramelized or something
1 Butternut Squash - Oven roasted and half of it was used for a vegetarian sandwich at the party (I also roasted the beets and added goat cheese, arugula and a balsamic drizzle to the sandwich); the other half will likely be made into soup
1 bunch Broccoli - Steamed and eaten last week with some cauliflower and quinoa
1 bunch Chard - Still here… no idea what to do with it
1 bunch Lactino Kale - Half was added to a chicken soup last week; will likely make kale chips with the rest
1 bunch Carrots - Still need to use these
1 bunch Collard Greens - Still need to do something with this
1 bunch Red Beets - Used on the veggie sandwich with the butternut squash above
1 head Leaf Lettuce - Still need to consume
1 bunch Rosemary - Could be in my refrigerator for months…
1 bunch Red Spring Onions - Dried out and ended up in the compost this morning
In addition to all of that I somehow ended up with a small cabbage, a bag of green beans and a bag of spinach.
Any suggestions as to what to do with all of the remaining greens and whatnot?
It is said, that in New York, you can pick out an expatriated SFian from 20 feet away, 50 feet with a scope…
There they are thinking that every person who approaches them on the street wants to know if they have a minute for gay rights. And there they are feeling so guilty that they don’t want to share that minute with gay rights that they turn gay on the spot to make up for it, and the German tourist, who just wanted directions to Broadway, is left reeling from the kiss.
