It’s not what did I eat last night at Tasty China, it’s what didn’t I eat last night. Today I think that I am suffering a food hangover. About the only dish I passed on last evening was a fried rice dish that someone ordered. And the only reason I passed on it was because it looked completely bland.
From what I remember I consumed, cilantro fish rolls, dan dan noodles, hot and numbing beef, spicy won ton soup, rabbit cubes, pork belly, shrimp, fried fish, beef, chicken, eggplant, millions of hot peppers, and a fortune cookie (whose fortune I’ve misplaced). And I wonder why I am feeling a bit “off” today. 🙂
The only bad news from the restaurant is that one of the chefs has burned himself badly so some of the items on the menu have been nixed. Fear not, I think that I’ve proven that there is still plenty of delicious stuff to eat.

I want you to say anything.
Even what you don’t mean.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
A New Day Has Dawned — Let There Be Lights
While traveling the top end of the perimeter last night, on which I saw to accidents between Roswell Road and I-75, I saw that some of the new “traffic regulating” on-ramp red-lights have been activated. I’ve watched these lights get installed for over a year now, and am rather suspect of their capabilities to solve Atlanta’s traffic woes. Let’s face it, the problem is too many cars on the road at the same time, mostly because there are too many cars in this area. My concern is that these lights will simply move the traffic jams from I-285 onto the surface streets which feed it.
I’m not traffic engineer and I hope that I am proven wrong on this one.

Last Friday I went to lunch at Beyond The Bayou. Since I’ve last eaten there they have moved into a small house in Chamblee. If you decide you need a Cajun fix, do yourself a favor and avoid Googling for the address — Google Maps shows the old location. Because I care, I’ve placed my photo on a map so you find the restaurant if you wish.
This is the room in which I ate.
I was kicking myself for not bringing my camera, so what you see was actually taken with the camera on my phone.
This just in…. I’ve not been shooting enough.
A Man Walks Into A Bar To Pick Up An Amish Bread Starter
Tonight I’ll be darkening the door of George’s Bar. With any luck I’ll be running five or so miles and not dying. And with any further luck I’ll be taking home an Amish bread starter so that I can become a master baker. That’s baker, people, baker!
I wonder how successful I can be baking inside my grill? Only time will tell.
RealiTV Update: Hell’s Kitchen
Ack! I missed it! And, unfortunately for me my satellite dish is a little on the wonky side right now so I wasn’t able to record it either.
I’ve seen who was booted, now I am going to see if I can watch it online.
Watching it now, won’t be done before my 7:30am meeting though. How do these cooks have any taste buds left? They smoke up a storm every week!
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
