Parker here...Foodie Fun with Grammy
Me again! Yup. It is time for a Parker Post. Grammy came to visit and it was a wild food extravaganza few days. When Grammy got off the plane she looked a bit frozen. She had to thaw a bit before she came to life. So after she came in we went for Mexican food because she said the weird place she lives doesn't really have any good stuff. So day one was spent mostly with Grammy just hugging and kissing me.
It was my first ride on BART.
Luckily, mom and dad figured out somewhere to go with the old gal so that she wouldn't squish me to death with her kisses. We went to the Ferry Building and to the Farmers Market. Grammy kept talking about wanting to find Hog Jowls to make something with. She is a little odd. She is really hung up on this Charcutepalooza thing.
She also bought this weird mushroom thing. She wants to grow her own. I think that they might be "Silly mushrooms" and not shiitake's. I mean WHO takes something like this in their suitcase home with them? I love her anyhow though. She buys me toys and lets me drool on her. She taught me how to stick my tongue out at her and it made mom and dad sorta mad. It was funny. Grammy is Koo Koo.
Grams got weepy when she saw Acme bread. She acts like there isn't yeast where she comes from. I dunno, she was scarfing it down like it was her last chance.
She then accousted some guy named Chris Cosentino. He is some meat guy. She asked HIM where to get hog jowl but the place that he suggested didn't have them. Grammy got a meat cone instead. I rather have an ice cream cone myself. She got this at Boccalone
She really loved this place.
Grammy kept looking at the Bay and mumbling something about not going home. Mom encouraged this idea.
Mom must take after Grammy because she was excited about this meat too. We walked around some and then dad had a great idea. He thought that we should all go Vodka tasting. *I* am too young but Grammy is a drunk so he thought she would like it.
We went to Hangar One. I don't know who those two ladies are. Grammy takes crappy pictures and THAT is why she will never ever be famous or win anything. She is really nice though.
I liked this weird looking thing in the vodka. It is called Buddha Fingers.
This is what dad and Grammy tasted. Mommy just took sips of theirs.
Then the old gal thought it would be funny to put me in a martini glass. Mom really didn't want to but she was being nice and did it for Grammy.
Lots more happened but Grammy is kind of a loser when it comes to taking pictures. Dad made chili for Grammy and mom and Grammy loved it. We all went to the Antique thingy and walked around for hours. Mom took Grammy to go see a concert and dad stayed home with me. Then Grammy had to leave all too soon.
Grammy looks like crap in this picture but I have to tell you that the two of us have a special kind of thing going. I have a feeling I am going to get anything I want out of her.
