Dave!I caught some crap for this old blog post today.

Some people are really serious about their wine, I guess. I thought I could get out of it by saying "I was only joking," but then I re-read the entry and realized that I wasn't. Oh well.

When I got home from work I was hungry but nothing sounded good to eat. Well, nothing here sounded good to eat. I would have killed for some Patatjes Met from the Netherlands. Or a Puka Dog from Hawaii. Or a plate of authentic Fettucini Alfredo from Rome. Or Pizano's Pizza and an America's Dog from Chicago. Or even just a Johnny Rockets veggie burger from Seattle...

Foods I Love

But what I really wanted was something I can't even have any more... even if I went to Salt Lake City to get it... I WANT BIG CITY SOUP!! But it closed down years ago...

Big City Soup

I hate it when that happens.

I hear they're making a Big City Soup Cookbook or something, but it wouldn't be the same.

I ended up having Peanut Butter M&M's and a Svenhard's butterhorn with a can of Coke...

Svenhard's Butterhorns
Yo! Svenhard's... BUTTERHORN is ONE WORD, NOT TWO!


Relatively speaking.

    Next time you’re in town and we do a meeting for Thrice, I’ll do a plate of this for ya. And I’ll even give you a good lecture on the correct wine. Plus I’ll have it, so you can get happy. 🙂

  2. Svenhard’s Butterhorns sounds dirty…. hee hee hee!

    I cannot believe someone would give you grief over an old blog post. People are assholes.

    Didn’t know you were a D&D player. We’ve moved on to a different game for a multitude of reasons, but I like the idea of going all nerd on them.

    Some idiot wants to wax poetic about a particular bottle of wine….fine…now you have to listen to a story about my 4th Level Cleric/Chosen one of Lathander. Oh, you’ll just LOVE BALADAR (yes, he has one name and it is spelled out in all caps).

    Somebody needs to invent a meat-less chicken shawarma for you, Dave. Capital-A Awesome!!

    I hate wine snobs. I hate it even more when they tell me “You just don’t know what is good.” I know what I like and what I don’t like and I don’t like a lot of their snooty wine. Pass the vodka please….

  6. martymankins says:

    Yes, Big City Soup is making a cookbook, but you are 100% correct in that it’s just not the same. Their downtown location right next to The Gateway was great. I miss their Salmon Chowder the most.

    And while i’ve not had the official Rome dish, I have had the Alferdo’s of NYC fettuccine alfredo and it’s the best I’ve ever had. I can’t imagine how much better the original is.

    Oh and… PATATJES MET! (someday, I will have this)

  7. the muskrat says:

    Good thing you don’t eat like this every day. I think you’d be dead.

  8. Megan says:

    You know that it’s not that hard to make the fettuccine the way you like it. It’s just butter and parm – you can find some good fresh pasta in the supermarket. OK, it may not be exactly the same, but it will be very close.

    Also, if you have access to Barilla spinach and cheese tortellini (in the pasta aisle), you can toss it with some butter and parm and it’s very good (and you’ll at least have nothing to compare it to!).

  9. Sybil Law says:

    I could eat fettucini alfredo every day, I think, and not get tired of it. I’ve never had any from Rome, though.
