Odds and Ends Related to Food.

I have three important food-related things that need to be shared with you.

1. Do you like California Pizza Kitchen?

Of course you do, who doesn't.

Last night, while Eric and I were looking over a CPK menu, our very polite and well-informed server notified us that the Tricolore Salad will be discontinued starting this Tuesday, July 23.

And I was like "WHAAAAAAAT???"

And he was like "I know. Our manager just told us this morning. Lots of people are going to complain."

And I was like "Yeah, I'm one of them. I'll have the Tricolore Salad, STAT. And bread with butter please. Make that STAT too. I'm having a Tricolore anxiety attack."

For those who have never tried it, the Tricolore Salad is a combination of mixed greens and tomato, tossed in balsamic dressing, topped with freshly shaved Parmesan cheese, served on top of thin-crust pizza. It's like a healthy pizza. But better, because it doesn't leave you with grease-chin afterward.

So if you like California Pizza Kitchen, or pizzas, or salads, or trying new foods, or taking my advice, GO TO CPK TODAY OR TOMORROW. Get your fill of the Tricolore Salad while you can. It's going away after tomorrow. Foreverrrrrrr.

CPK BIGWIGS: If you happen to be reading this, please reconsider. You're making a huge mistake.

Also, while you're there, you might as well get the chocolate souffle cake. I mean, I don't even like chocolate and I can't refuse this thing. For reals.

2. Do you like madeleines?

You should because they're buttery rich and ordering them makes you sound sophisticated.

I usually tend to buy them at The Coffee Bean because that just happens to be where I most often see them. But every time I fall for this checkout-line-impulse-buy, I can't help but recognize that I'm getting totally ripped off. Now I can't remember the exact price, but I want to say it's like $2 for a pack of three.

Why am I telling you this?

Because I just discovered a tub of these French fancies at Vons the other day:
14 madeleine's for $5.


Now, I'm no math wizard, but I'm pretty sure that's a way better deal.

You better believe I bought them because it's the smart shopper thing to do.

And it could also be because the label included something about "100% butter."


3. Peaches & Cottage Cheese

Have you ever had real peaches with cottage cheese? As in, fresh peaches?

Actually, now that I'm looking at this, maybe I was eating a nectarine...?

I had it for breakfast this morning and it was kind of gross.

Who knew there was such a big difference between fresh peaches/ cottage cheese, and canned peaches/ cottage cheese?

Heavy syrup for the win.

That's better.

I hate when restaurants discontinue my favourite foods!! I like the idea of salad pizza.
