Escalator Rat

The TriNoma Mall in Quezon City has an escalator located right by the entrance, which might explain where this rogue rat came from! A visitor caught the rat on camera during a frenzied attempt to climb up a downward-moving escalator. Needless to say, the attempt was unsuccessful.

The Food Lab: Homemade Mayonnaise in Two Minutes or Less

I love homemade mayonnaise. The only thing I don’t like about it is I’m never sure how long it’s good for so I only make it if it’s during a time where I’m making a lot of sandwiches that need it, or tuna or egg salad.

I tried the immersion blender trick above but can never seem to get that to work so I just use a whisk and add the oil slowly until I create a good emulsion.

Customers Leave Waitress Anti-Immigrant Note Instead of Tip

The waitress was actually an American citizen but the couple she served wanted an honest to goodness corn fed ‘REAL’ American to feed them at their local Greek restaurant. Safe to assume that they are voting for Trump?

According to WHSV, the server says she felt uncomfortable delivering two gyros, sodas, and a Greek salad to a couple at one of her tables because they refused to talk to her and would “just nod their heads.” However, when she found the receipt she learned why. “We only tip citizens,” the note on the receipt reads.

While it really shouldn’t matter either way, it bears noting that the customers were just plain wrong in their assumptions about Elledge. She’s a born and raised U.S. citizen who has Mexican and Honduran heritage. Ironically, Elledge adds that the woman had an accent and the pair were in fact eating at an immigrant-owned business. “I just feel like it’s rude and disrespectful. I’ve never met, I’ve never done anything to them,” the waitress says.

Well

CNN’s headline this morning.

I’ve lost count at how many times now Trump has “rebooted” his campaign. Trump isn’t going to change guys. He’ll be tweeting something ridiculous before I hit the publish button on this post.

Update:
Right on schedule:

Question of the Day

What’s the last thing you cooked?

I think a week ago I posted a shakshuka recipe which I liked so much I made again a few days ago. I used Chef John’s recipe for the most part but added goat cheese and some kielbasa. Damn, I miss it already.

My Apologies to Florida

I read this headline and assumed he was from Florida. My bad.
