Cijl: Wednesday 2, aka Thursday

Yesterday's Fox Commissary fruit plate (I should take a photo of these or something. In my mind, the Fox fruit plate best embodies the abundance that makes Southern California such a weirdly discomforting paradise. I can get a plastic clamshell container groaning with fresh ripe apple, grapefruit, orange, banana, grape, melon, pineapple and berry every single day of the year. For FREE. The fruit I've thrown away in my 3 years as a Fox employee -- I don't eat the melons or strawberries -- would make for the most extravagant feast your random third world loser has ever seen.)

1 handful Blue Diamond Bold almonds, wasabi and soy sauce flavor
1 handful Blue Diamond Bold almonds, Maui onion and garlic flavor
Dried mango
Some honey dijon Kettle chips
Carrot juice
1 bite of a Quaker honey nut granola bar
Some Tostitos Scoops! with Tostitos salsa

California Pizza Kitchen tricolore salad pizza (Here in California we have these kitchens, you see, that make pizza. We're pretty proud of them. Whenever we pass by one we look in the window and give them a little "rock on!" gesture. Then we playfully growl at each other, because the state symbol is a bear. Also, my salad pizza was bad.)

Kimchi Chigae (spicy soup)
Tonkatsu (Japanese pork cutlet, breaded with Panko), smeared with sambal

Rosewater Saffron ice cream (Mashti's makes 4 kinds of rosewater ice cream. They are totally fine.)

3 L water

Yes it helps, but I shouldn't have had to ask to get this information.

I second Jack on the Spicy Thai Kettle Chips.

Cheddar Beer is also good - Cheddar Beer and Spicy Thai were the two winners of some contest where fans of Kettle Chips got to vote on new flavors. The people who voted on the winning flavors have their names printed in tiny print on the bags.

I like salt and pepper - I think SC shares our fondness for this? A few other chips lines - Doritos comes to mind - added pepper as a flavor this past year. Did it really take America's food makers that long to realize that people like pepper?

I hate all flavored chips except pepper.
