  1. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    at work sometimes the El Salvadoran cooks will make us a traditional breakfast of their nation. it is fried plantains, pureed black beans, crema and a salty crumbled cheese. I like it a lot. when in Iceland breakfast was smoked, pickled and chilled fishes, skyr, butter, and a sweet dark bread each morning. also very delicious !

    in kun's defense, don't we all have a historical issue with david luiz?

    oh, certainly. he is gone before Christmas. as fluid and slick in possession as the gunners have been west ham has just looked horrid. Payet will be looking for a move in January I am sure.

    and frozen yogurt and blended margaritas.

    now time for el clasico! wooohooo. barca is hardly what they used to be. but, it should still be a pretty awesome battle. i predict a barca 2-1 win with a brace by suarez.

    no kidding. he really does make them a fun team to watch. i even find it hard to remember to call costa a cunt when i see him. god damn, what is happening to football??

    i am beginning to believe that if given a chance i could score against pep's manchester city. unbelievable how they cannot keep balls out of the net. they need to sign some defenders. insane.
  11. Should tipping be banned?

    i personally think you should carry some nice cards in which you have hand lettered some favorite bible verses. you leave these in lieu of extra cash at the end of the meal. or, you could tip them. if you are already being given a service charge perhaps not. when we ate in england we were hit with a service charge at both nice restaurants we ate at. kair and i had dinner with three others at a notable and delicious steakhouse and at a mark hix restaurant where we were hit with a charge. i paid both. little did they know, silly american chef would have happily left more money than the suggested service charge. recently a lot of restaurants in the states have began transitioning to a tip free experience. one such restaurateur is doing well with it. danny meyer is offering a archetype for a future that could well work in the states. one thing i have began really hating is finding a suggested automatic gratuity on my bill. many restaurants will in fact print on the menu that it is included on parties of 6 or 8 or more. my own place does it. certainly if a guest isn't happy with it they don't pay it. on a recent business trip to hawaii my sous chef and i ate a very expensive meal at morimoto. we found our server had added 18% to our bill. food was outstanding, but service had been shit and he had the audacity. it turns out standard is to add 18% to all bills as hawaii has so many foreign travelers who do not know about tipping culture.

    I eat more pork products, drink more beer and listen to more metal than easily 99% of humans. I also eat the fuck out of #kale!!! do not speak ill of this favored leafy green!

  14. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    I invented a fine breakfast thing once. first I shredded potatoes and cooked them as one might hashbrowns in a disc shape. I then added kale, eggs and bacon and cooked it like fritatta. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v484/h3r3t1c/Mobile Uploads/FB_IMG_1480422372253_zps1xfk9sd1.jpg eerily Facebook reminded me of this today.

    in my kitchen breakfast soup and breakfast tacos reign supreme . my staff enjoy birth heartily. yesterday was a pork broth with slices of sausage, kale, blackened peas and chilies. today will be bacon and eggs on warm corn tortillas with tomatillo salsa. oh, and cereal sucks. sorry.
