My two days in San Francisco are up, but before I head off to the airport we’re having a last brunch. And one of my favorite places for brunch out here is Squat & Gobble.
After all, what could be better than reasonably-priced, large glasses of delicious coffee…
My freshman year of college is over.
Well, I still have a take-home final to hand in, but I’ve packed up my room, said goodbye to all my friends, and flown off to San Francisco to hang out with my granddad for a few days before going home.
This has been, without a doubt, the best year of my life so far and it was really hard to leave it.
But having a fantastic seafood brunch at the Woodhouse Fish Co. helps a little bit.
Even though it’s May, which is a month that doesn’t have an R in it, meaning it’s not oyster season, the oysters we started with were pretty darn good.
More Than Eggs is now on Tumblr!
It’ll just be a mirror of this WordPress site, but Tumblr is more interactive and allows for more people to follow the posts, so I think having both is a good thing for now. I’ll come back and reevaluate in a couple of months, but right now I’m pretty happy with it and the way it looks.
Quick iPhone post:
Sift makes awesome cupcakes. And giant macaroons. This one had tons of raspberries.
My friend’s s’more cupcake.
My chocolate-caramel cupcake. There was caramel INSIDE.
EDIT: Just to clarify, I have no affiliation with Sift. My friends and I just walked in and decided to buy some dessert and take pictures of it and say good things about it. 🙂

So I thought it might be an opportune moment for me to tell you how I feel about ranch dressing. I love it. Like, collect-it-from-the-plate-with-my-finger-and-lick-until-I’ve-finished-every-last-drop love it.
It’s a sunny Wednesday afternoon. We have some color-coordinated, sweeter-than-vegetables-should-be bell peppers lying around. As I might have mentioned, I like ranch dressing.
How else can these things come together?
I have friends who don’t like bell peppers. I don’t care. All the more for me. But if you find someone who doesn’t like ranch dressing, send them to me. Let’s not speak of what might happen to them.
Yeah, this blog hasn’t been around for a very long time, but the theme I was using before was a holiday theme and some aspects of it were getting on my nerves, so I figured that it was better to completely overhaul the layout and some other stuff (like changing tags to categories for easier sorting) sooner than later.
Nine days to Chinese New Year! We’ve already started eating 酒釀圓子 jiu niang yuan zi (sweet glutinous rice wine soup with glutinous rice balls) and 馬蹄糕 ma ti gao (water chestnut ‘cake’ – more like a jelly-like dessert) in anticipation of an entire week (or more) of indulgence.
Have a good week!
Update – Jan. 27: we had 年糕 nian gao (glutinous rice ‘cake’) today. These are the Cantonese kind, made with brown sugar, coated with egg and fried. Mmm.
Happy Holidays! etc. (I celebrate commercial Christmas because I’m not religious.)
Even so, I’m using this as an excuse to not write a blog post, so I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays and that you’ll be ready for the results of my awesome New Year’s Eve party next week. Hopefully we’ll be making shepherd’s pie, pasta, gingerbread cookies and more, but the menu hasn’t really been finalized yet.
See you next week!
