The things we did and didn’t eat

We moved. From here:

To here:

We saw a lot along the way.

We did not eat here:

We also didn’t eat here:

That’s the San Francisco Food Bank. Volunteers do about 95% of the work at this place. We helped bag a 8,271 pounds of pasta.

We found new sources of good food:

(Same open. Whole new grand.)

We discovered Panorama Bread:

We assuaged New York longings with bowls of Momofuku ginger scallion noodles:

  • 2.5 cups thinly sliced scallions (1-2 large bunches, green and white parts)
  • 0.5 cup finely minced peeled ginger
  • 0.25 cup neutral oil – grapeseed etc.
  • 1.5 tsp light soy sauce
  • 0.75 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 0.75 tsp kosher salt

Mix it all up and let stand 15-20 minutes. Make some noodles and dump this stuff on top. Add more scallions and soy sauce. Eat with other fun things as desired—we had nori and pickled turnips on the side. The Momofuku cookbook suggests bamboo shoots, pickled cucumbers, and roasted cauliflower.

We discovered our new neighborhood:

We ate beans and cornbread:

We painted Easter Eggs with old and new friends:

We miss our family and friends back East. We’ll make frequent return visits, and we’ll entice them with Seascape strawberries and Point Reyes cheeses. And I think we’ll be OK.

    Brooklyn misses you.

    Beautiful post. My ex-San Franciscan heart that was transplanted to Los Sngeles regularly aches for the neighborhood you now live in. Enjoy!
