    Would wuss be appropriate here?
     
    I had a Chinese Chicken Salad at California Chicken Cafe:
     
    http://www.californiachickencafe.com/menus.html
     
    Ate the entire thing.
     
    They sell soup.  I don't get it.  They don't sell chicken soup.
     
    Carry on...

      Wait a minute...

      Real Mashed Potatoes & Gravy (Not available in Hollywood)

      What's up with the potatoes these days?

      We can't get Chicken & Waffle potato chips and Hollywood can't get real mashed potatoes & gravy.

      I want a petition.

        Hollywood's potato allotment goes to Musso and Franks.

          The 411 Salad (Not available in Hollywood and Northridge)

          They're obviously keeping Hollywood in the dark!

            I did some bacon and bleu cheese stuffed chicken breasts, with coleslaw and peas.
             

             
            There's almost too much bleu cheese, but ohmygod was it good.

              Here's my list for the next few day's worth of dinners to make:  Tenderloins.
              Tuna salad. Crab cakes.  Clam Chowder.  Corned beef and cabbage.  That's a pretty hefty list.

              Wow--that's quite a list!  Two questions: (1) what kind of tenderloins? (2) New England or Manhattan clam chowder?
               
              I just went to the annual Clam Chowder Cook-off at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk last weekend.  It was fun, as always, but ridiculously packed.

                There's no such thing as Manhattan clam chowder. That stuff to which you refer is merely clam soup.

                  Michael, at one time that's all we ate was Manhattan clam chowder. The Purists in New England probably wanted something that showed off the pure flavor of the New England Clam. After all, you don't put cream and potatoes on a fresh Cherry stone clam on a half shell, Do You ???? I'm not even sure why they call this a chowder, Chowders are thick and made with a cream base. I have had many Manhattan clam chowders, that used fresh clams juice and fresh shucked clams. I remember people who didn't like the taste of clams eating New England clam chowder......Isn't that the reason we seek out the fried clam that is lightly dusted in flour, we want the true taste of the whole belly juicy clam taste....................pnwc

                    Bill, I grew up on New England clam chowder, and I remain true to that wonderful stuff. But I'll admit that I once did find a red chowder that was very close to almost as good. It was at a place in Seattle called Ivars House of Clams, and the waitress told me that if I didn't like it she'd pay for our whole meal. I really hated having to pay for that meal.

                      Threw a bunch of stuff in a skillet with some bacon grease and called it dinner.

                        Ah, now that looks good to me. But I trust there are no mushrooms hidden in there.

                          I agree, Mr. Hoffman. To me, it is Manhattan clam soup. I like it. But I prefer chowda........

                            We went to a local place today that has been here for years.  I just never ventured in.
                             
                            http://www.bajacantina.com/
                             
                            What a surprise.  We walked in at 3:15PM and the place was packed.  Took us a few minutes to realize the chips and salsa were help yourself.  We did.
                             
                            Turned out we were there at Happy Hour and there were a lot of Happy People inside.  It was more of a bar that served food than a restaurant that also served drinks.  The music was loud and the food was great.
                             
                            We ordered off of the Patio Grill Menu and I ordered Manuel's Special Burrito with chicken solely on the sound of the ancho sauce.
                             

                             
                            I ate the whole thing.
                             
                            The house Margaritas were $5.
                             
                            We'll be going back to Baja Cantina.

                              You should go to El Torito at Happy Hour.........  Beef tacos are a buck each and house margaritas are $4.00

                                That looks fabulous, mar! I find myself wishing I had a reason to go to L.A. again so I can eat at some of your spots.

                                Nope, nary a mushroom to be found! Potatoes, bacon, onion, garlic, celery, smoked sausage and red bell pepper.

                                  Greg, we always go to El Torito as it's almost walking distance for people that like to walk.  It's also not about the price... it's about the food. El Torito is just convenient.  The food is just okay.
                                   
                                  This was different and although it doesn't have the view of the water that El Torito has, we both think the food is better.... so far.

                                    That burrito looks delicious.

                                    I had one Margarita in Cali and I still think I have a buzz from it!

                                    Happy Hour indeed!

                                      Following up on the above chowder topic, here's a photo of one of the gimmicky ones.  Yes, it's green!  And it tasted a little minty to me, which I didn't care for.  The only red version we tried tasted like vegetable soup--no real clam flavor. :(

                                        That's supposed to be clam chowder? Except for the part where I can see a clam, I just don't think so. Especially with a minty taste. The clams are supposed to be the main flavour as far as I'm concerned.
                                         
                                        Dinner tonight was some bean and ham soup from the freezer, because I didn't get home until 6pm instead of 3pm as I intended. I love that my freezer is full of things I can quick throw in the microwave and call dinner when I need to!

                                            Pretty strange, huh!  In a lot of competitions, people will do something gimmicky in order to stand out.  In this one, their theme was "Clam - I - Am"  (Green soup with clam), complete with funny Dr. Seuss type hats.  While I can't imagine their chowder won over the judges, they might have been going for the People's Choice Award, in which visitors vote for their favorite chowder.  In fact, I voted for the firemen's chowder even though it was my second favorite, flavor-wise.

                                              I went to ChowdaFest on Long Beach Island last year. It was fierce competition, with all you can eat samples. I haven't wanted to look at chowder since!

                                              Today is chicken Italian sausage with garlic broccoli rabe, and eggplant rollitini.

                                                  Hey Greg, if you have a tree loaded with avocados, why is there a brand label on one of them?

                                                    My tree has only a couple left this season so we got these at Boneys. 
                                                    Normally at regular season the tree is SO full thatI end up giving 1/2 of them away.

                                                      For heaven's sake, don't tell the purists! I wanted chili but I had virtually nothing in the house to make it, plus it was already 4:30pm. I'm calling it four bean faux chili.

                                                        Right now lleechef has a stuffed chicken in the oven. There'll be roasted chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and beautiful Brussels sprouts for dinner tonight. Meanwhile, she's watching the official start of the Iditarod on her computer in the kitchen.

                                                            I ate the snack size of McDonald's Fish Bites and I had the regular burger with extra pickles as a back up.
