Post 16, 11/29/16: Sweet corn, quinoa and black bean salad with sweet and spicy tenderloin steak from Weary Traveler

A fine evening it is, though it’s always a pleasure to spend time with my little salmon compadres! In case you’re confused, that’s a way of addressing or referring to a friend or companion. And we are… companions… aren’t we? Err *cough* I mean, wow, what a great audience. I’m still getting it together since I just got in from a nice angry rainy night jog. Here’s a picture of me right before I went out: Nah I’m just joshin’ ya…

Post 15, 11/28/16: Beef bourguignon from cafeteria at work

Top o’ the mornin’, friends! Wow, what a great audience. What could this be? Is ol’ tom backstreets back, alright! for rizzle? Time will tell, but it just might be the case up in hizzere. Today we bring you a luscious dollop of beef bourguignon, straight from the cafeteria at work, in a black plastic to go container, consumed right on top of my notebook which basically contains all the knowledge I’ll ever need, have written down, and will never…

Post 14, 11/26/16: Rib tips and assorted sides from That BBQ Joint (yes, that is the real name)

Hola. Mis salmón amigos. ¡Lo que un gran público! ¿Donde está el restaurante? Ok folks, let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat: “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” -Mark Twain -tom from ididntwantsalmon.com Yes it’s true, I’ve been on a bit of a self-imposed hiatus for some serious self reflection and soul searching, as I feel like I’m at a “journey to understand my place in the universe” point in my life. I’m…

Post 13, 11/16/16: “Spicy” southern fried chicken sandwich from cafeteria at work

Hiyo! Here come dat salmon bois (oh poop whaddup?)! Wow, what a great audience. Today we’re going to sample an allegedly spicy fried chicken sandwich from the cafeteria at work, which possibly to your surprise typically has some of the most desirable offerings in all the land. Spoiler alert: this one’s a bit of a clunker, certainly when compared to the Beef Short Ribs with Succotash, Poblano Crema, and Blistered Shishito Pepper, Sushi Sandwich, Fish and Chips, or Bangers and Mash. It’s…

DISCLAIMER: Glass Nickel Pizza Co is among the best, most reliable pizza joints in all the city when it comes to food, its excellent employees, and a great, relaxed environment.

I think you know where this one is going though. END DISCLAIMER…

Post 11, 11/11/16: … something?… from the stove at Johnny and Zandi’s house

Howdy salmon-ers and salmon-ettes. Wow, what a great audience. I’ll be honest, I really wanted to make a post today so I could pay my respects to this hallowed day, November 11th – as you all know, today is national “Day the Soviet Union Refused to Play Chile in a 1973 World Cup Soccer Match Day” day , but all I could find in my phone food-wise was this …stuff???… I found on Johnny and Zandi’s stove a few weeks…
