I had gelato twice today. Twice! First time: at the bustling Farmer’s Market on Market and Embarcadero; had some lovely riso (rice pudding). It wasn’t overly sweet and had hints of cinammon in it. Later in Japantown, after slurping up a bowl of udon for dinner, I savored a cup of exquisite red bean and lychee gelato. I will say this once and again: Ess Eff is about nothing if not food. Good food.

Streaming through the speakers: Ten Silver Slide Trombones, solo project by Don Peris, guitarist from The Innocence Mission. A lot of geographical references in his songs, I’ve noticed. Fitting music for a road trip, especially driving at dusk with an infinite stretch of highway ahead of you.

    Gelato twice is twice as nice!

    I was craving gelato yesterday…Howler’s hazelnut gelato, but I passed due to the fullness of my stomach with it’s tiramisu cheesecake from cheesecake factory taking up all the space in that rarely vacuous space.

    I could write 10 comments about gelato…and give you ten thousand eProps for just mentioning it…but I won’t…not now.
    I was thinking about Napa Valley the other day. It may soon be time for another road trip up the West Coast to SF and Napa.

    Hahaha Thanks for the eProppage dana banana, and for brightening up my kind-of-sick day. I have a little cold. Would like to hear your 10 comments about gelato one day. Some day.Yes yes yes, methinks that y’all are due for a road trip to SF. Maybe when all this winter bleakness is over and done with.
