the Dude of Food gets blessed. 2 yolks – no jokes

Is it the year of the chicken or what?

 Don’t know what they are feeding these chickens but my luck seems to be changing in 2015.  The first egg i cracked revealed 2 yolks inside!  It happened to me at the sushi bar with a double yolked quails egg too!

Now if i can just get that kind of return when i buy beers!

The Dude of Food likes Leberkasse und kaffe

A good way to start a leisurely saturday is with a leberkasse from the downtown LA Grand Central food court.

They need to do something about the parking though. The street is $4.00 an hour and the lot across the street is $5.00 flat. Can’t imagine what it’s like on weekday but it must be madness. Probably not best suited for folks who are on a budget or quick lunch break unless you can walk from your office.

The Dude of Food likes IN-N-OUT

inout u The Dude of Food  is a big fan of In-n-Out burger. Ever wonder why they are so good? Is the quality of the meat? Is it the consistency in quality? Is the care they take in customer service? Is it the fresh iced tea and clean bathrooms?

Whatever it is, these employees learn at the IN-N-OUT University in Baldwin Park.

Around the corner is a replica of one of the originals, seen below. Instead of millions served they advertise ‘NO DELAY’. My how times have changed.

The Dude of Food shares Micheladas

     The first photo shows how they serve Micheladas in the streets of San Miguel de Allende.

A liter styrofoam cup filled with all the fixings of a great refreshing drink for 50 pesos.

They have this stick in them that has some red picante stuff stuck to it that you use to mix your drink.

The second photo shows the ingredients.

For best results use fresh limes and skip the bottled lime juice.

I use Red Rooster or Pete’s hot sauce and not put too much ice.

If you don’t know about this spot then you probably shouldn’t, but I have to tell you that after my last trip to Mexico I have become a big fan of the michelada.

It just so happens that they make a good one here.  Pricey but good.

The 50 year anniversary party was awesome.

the Dude of Food Morning Coffee Mantra

COFFEE

  The scent of the brew wafts through the house and wraps itself into the cool dark morning air.

 My senses tingle when the aroma arrives at my nostrils and the pulse of excitement runs through my body reminding me of another beautiful day that is about to begin.

I hear the final pumps of water as the machine gasps and sighs and steam seeps out the seam at the top.

 As I turn the corner towards the kitchen the green power light on the machines front penetrates the night as strongly as the scent of the brew itself.  I see it’s green glow in the form of a dot at the base of the source of the scent, resonating small and bright in the distance.

 The chosen mug stands by attentively waiting to fulfill its duty as holder of the vital morning fluid.  The organic milk with an expiration date way into the future stands nearby to assist in the control of the fluid.  The machine gives up its final gasp of steam as the last of the water runs through its process.  The dark, warm, effervescent brew sits idly in the glass container patiently waiting to be consumed.

 The hand that rocks my cradle pours the brown joy into the attentive mug and then proceeds to top it off with a splash of vitamin D milk.  It’s at this point that I begin to think things are going well.

  When the brew touches my lips and the heat from it rises into my face i begin to feel more alive.  Then the warm brew hits my stomach and on the way down lets my body know a beautiful new day is about to begin and it is time to get into the moment and to lead the masses.

  My opportunity to live and make the world a better place begins now.  Today is going to be another great day.

Authors note;  Without coffee my mantra sounds whinier.th-1
