Saw them at Jazz Fest a few weekends ago. They were great, but they’re definitely past their prime as Stevie just can’t hit some of those notes, anymore. Still, I was happy to get to see them live.
After the cashew chicken (I had the rest of it boxed up), my server asked me if I wanted dessert. I asked what they had and the last thing she mentioned was ‘fried bananas.’ I thought “Why not?”
This was enough for 2 or 3 people (4 banana halves fried, coconut ice cream, whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate and topped with shredded coconut).
Of course it was delicious and of course I couldn’t finish it. I live at least 50 minutes from this restaurant. Did I ask for a box for the rest of the dessert? Yes. Yes, I did. I have no shame. The ice cream was mostly melted but it got put in the freezer when I got home. I just cannot stand to see ice cream thrown away.

Also, every now and then I bake and it actually turns out to be more than just edible.
I made a lemon rosemary yogurt cake for Joel because he’s been working crazy hours at the hospital for the past week or so, on top of fixing the car himself to prepare for the big move (he loves lemon-y baked goods). He immediately asked that I double the recipe next time. So good.
This is almost fool-proof and you could easily switch out the lemon and rosemary for other fruits and herbs!

This (the AT) needs to be on my bucket list (and doing part of the PCT too).

I loved this whole series of newspaper clippings about Fat Chance’s family fishery but this one is my favorite (have a look at the rest).
When Cartoon Network brought their anime block back, why did they have to show it between midnight and 6 a.m. That’s when I sleep.

They always show the guys shouting “Death to America!!” Just once I wish the media would show us, I don’t know, baking a cookie. I’ve been to Iran, we have cookies, I swear. Just once, I want the media to be like, “Okay, we’re going to go to Mohammed in Iran” and then a guy would appear like “Hello, I’m Mohammed… and I’m just baking a cookie. — Maz Jobrani, an Iranian-American, on the way Middle Easterners are depicted in mainstream media.
