CONFESSIONS OF A
A San Francisco Girl's Down and Dirty Adventures in the Culinary Playground
I'm home, and if you can believe this, I actually *lost* weight on the trip. Too much sightseeing, not enough food if you ask me.
OK, kiddies, I'm FINALLY heading off to Europe today. I leave you with love and kisses and a shitload of great restaurants here at home.
Jon and I had meant to go to Shanghai Dumpling King for a number of years. The problem, however, is that we are lazy bitches and could not bring ourselves to drive to the outer Richmond. It's far. And it's cold there. Now how fucked up is that logic? Quite fucked up when you consider I flew to Chicago for 36 hours for a meal, and have planned a trip to Europe around a dinner reservation. In any case, we finally dragged our asses out to SDK, and now you can't keep us away.
Jon and I have this joke that in all '80's movies, there is a "fixin' up the boat" montage set to cheesy music. Now it's not always a boat. Sometimes it's a frat house. Or a van. Or a crack house. But it's always something being fixed up.
