Gingerbread Boy

We made a Safeway gingerbread boy tonight.  I think everyone thought it was a Superboy gingerbread boy but nope it was a Safeway boy.

Plouf

Christina and I went to Plouf on Friday night because our friend is now an Executive Chef there.  According to its website: “The trendy French seafood bistro on lively Belden Alley in the Financial District. Specializing in mussels, unique appetizers, salads, seafood dishes, and meats, we invite you to join us for a truly Parisian dining experience.”  The mussels were absolutely fantastic (forgot to snag a picture) and the steak (hey I did get some mussels and oysters…so I got some seafood) was awesome.  If you are ever in San Francisco and love seafood I hope you check it out!

Food Truck Mafia

Anthony, Brian, and I went to a food truck mafia event today at the mall parking lot.  A food truck mafia (I learned today from Brian) is a group of food trucks in one location.  I had fish tacos from Cabana Dave’s Food Truck (Twitter) and a maple bacon cupcake for dessert from That’s Sweet!  Dessert Truck (Twitter) .  I felt horrible about myself after eating the cupcake for about 5 minutes.  Life is short and man was that cupcake good!  Time to exercise so I can get another cupcake some day!

Chili Pepper Spicy Ale

Six Rivers Brewery in McKinleyville, CA makes a mean Chili Pepper Spicy Ale.  I was picking up a few more bottles of wine for the upcoming wedding yesterday and any time I make a trip to BevMo I make sure to visit the beer aisle.  I love spicy foods but woah it is actually a very spicy beer!  I think it will likely be a one time purchase for me but love trying out new varieties of beer every now and then.  If you try it or have already tried it, let me know what you think.
