Lipstick & Magazines #73: Menu

What's on the menu? What's tasting good lately?

I've been fixated on this Cauliflower with Mustard-Lemon Butter from Epicurious. Man, I swear it's like vegetable candy. You will, in fact, eat the WHOLE HEAD of cauliflower in one sitting. And you won't regret it (hopefully). I did cut down on the butter with no dire consequences.

Some excellent vintage menu browsing at City College of San Francisco's Alice Statler Menu Collection, which "features images of historical menus for over a dozen San Francisco restaurants, and menus used in restaurants at the 1939 World's Fair on San Francisco's Treasure Island."

I finally made it to Miette's new-ish candy store on Octavia near Hayes in SF. It is, predicatably, pink and adorable, and I was surprised to be able to get out of there with less than $5 damage. Definitely worth of visit if adorable is your thing. Especially if you like malt balls that you can purchase by color so your candy bowl can match your decor.

Sweet bird decorative transfers for your cup, wall, or window at Perpetual Kid.

I know, I know. I should be over wanting the Hello Kitty-themed party that I didn't have as a kid. But when they make the stuff this cute, how can I not want it? Plum Party has all the fixin's. You can also start planning your Tie Dye Party to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love!
