Post 7, 10/26/16: Basic Pie with sausage and pepperoni from Grampa’s Pizzeria

Hi guys; good to have you back for more hard-hitting, salmon-related food reviewing. Wow, what a great audience. I gotta tell you, this entry’s food is one of my all time favorites, so don’t expect me to pull any punches. Jeez, I feel like the Darrel Hammond version of Chris Matthews on SNL – we’re talkin’ herd-bul! That’s right folks, today we’re finally ripping off the manhole-shaped band-aid to review one of the finest dishes in all the land – a pizza pie,…

Hello everybody – Tom here, welcoming you to another session of not wanting salmon and general food bloggery. Wow, what a great audience. Today we’re going to discuss the world’s most commonly used spice, a food mentioned at least as early as 1000 B.C. according to references in Greek and Roman texts which suggest an ancient trade between India and the West. You got it – one of three immensely important peppers in my life, coming in 3rd after a dopey yet adorable little kitten…

Howdy y’all! It’s always a treat to get so many salmon-loathers together. Wow, what a great audience. Today we’re going to review some salmon… fish… *giggles* …cakes… *laughs* …oh I can’t even keep a straight face! Today we’re actually talking about a real honker of a cheeseburger, available right now at Willy Street Pub, also known as the Wisco, also known as that one bar on Willy Street, also known as where I think I left my keys: the Owen Mays Burger, served on an…

Post 4, 10/17/16: Water from Gray’s Tied House

We meet again, my precious little salmon-despising crew. Wow, what a great audience. Today we’re going to review the most fundamental of consumable items: tap water, served in a clear plastic cup from Gray’s Tied House, with a lemon and straw. According to my compadre Annika, a noted non-water-drinker, this water is “adequate.” We’ll see. Now many people don’t know this, but water has been an important part of history, and I’m about to drop some wet, translucent knowledge on…

Post 3, 10/14/16: Reuben sandwich from deli at work

Oh, hello my little salmon-ites – didn’t see you there. Wow, what a great audience. Today we’re going to review one heck of a sandwich, the classic half-pastrami half-corned beef Reuben on Jewish rye with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing. This one comes your way from the deli at work, and hoo boy if it isn’t a humdinger! If you really want to eat your feelings in a way that’s appropriate at work, look no further. There may not always be bacon-ranch-pulled…

Post 2, 10/12/16: V8 Original Low Sodium 100% Vegetable Juice from work refrigerator

Welcome back salmon-heads! Wow, what a great audience. I think I should probably start with an apology, as the last post got a little off-topic, but don’t worry, today we’re going to review a food item that couldn’t possibly be more interesting: V8 Original Low Sodium 100% Vegetable Juice. I found this gem in the bottom of the break room refrigerator at work, but we’ll see whether you should make the trek by the end of this post. Let’s get started!…
