    Headed to Nice, France on the train today. Had a croque monsieur for breakfast. Tonight we had a little Bourgogne Chardonnay and then a couple of 1664 beers with green olives and peanuts. Life is good! :)

    You're in France, one of the most cuisine-rich countries on the planet, and you're eating pizza. Julia Childs would be rolling over in her grave right now!

    When I worked in San Francisco (a very short while), a roach coach would come around every morning with fresh-made pastries. One of my favorites was the custard-filled pastry horns. I've never found anything like them anymore. Every shop I search has sweet-cheese filled or whipped cream filled, but no custard. If I made a Bucket List wish, it would be for a box of those!

    I almost forgot to mention that we went to the Olive Museum in Imperia, Italy. Olives and olive oil are an important part of the Mediterranean diet. I don't know of any other Olive Museum in the world. The link to their website is: http://www.museodellolivo.com/eng/index.htm

    The Olive Museum is owned by the Carli family who still process olives on the site. Their processing area is surrounded by glass windows so people can watch the process when they harvest olives in October. Admission to the Olive Museum is 5 euros.

    I was really impressed with the Olive Museum. They show you how olive trees migrated to Europe, how they shipped olive oil years ago, the many uses of olive oil, how olives are processed, and the health benefits of olives. I now realize why olive oil is expensive compared to other cooking oils. There is a lot of manual labor involved, starting with the harvest and the maintenance of the olive trees

    The Olive Museum has a great collection of old olive presses and olive oil lamps. There was one olive oil lamp that dated 4000 years ago.

    Found a real wild craft beer today. Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter from the Horny Goat Brewery. From their website:

    A full bodied porter that gets its dark luscious color from the generous use of roasted malts. You’ll get just the right amount of chocolate and peanut butter to question whether you’re drinking a glass of delicious suds or popping a peanut butter cup in your mouth.

    White Chili

    I saw white chili on a menu which I have never heard of before, so decided to try making some today. It's actually very good. I used this recipe, but did not add the following ingredients, sour cream, whipping cream. I also used olive oil instead of canola oil and added a little red pepper and white onion.

    I take canned sardines to work quite often for lunch. Recently, in the sardine section of my grocery store, a new mackerel in olive oil from King Oscar has came out. A mackerel is a little bit bigger than a sardine but they are quite good.

    @palandri: Yeah, when I took sardines to work (in an office), my coworkers made sure to make me for guilty for stinking up the place. Too bad.

    BTW, I've also eaten canned mackerel. Anything with fish! I've had Lox and Bagels for breakfast (cream cheese, red onion, tomato, capers, and of course lox). Where I worked in San Ramon there was a "Bagel Street Cafe" where I'd get that breakfast once a week. Now that I'm retired, I get it about once a month in my hometown.

    I am also a fan of sardines. Mostly I buy cans. In the summer I get frozen whole sardines that are about 7-8in long. After thawing, scaling and cleaning them, I coat them in olive oil and put them on the grill. Add a little kosher or sea salt and grill until the skin chars a little. I never seem to buy enough though because all of a sudden people who 'hate sardines' eat them all up.

    Bacon and other processed meats can cause cancer, experts say

    This is something that has been known for years, but they really haven't done much about it in the U.S. I would think moderation is the key.

    I know in France they take the issue seriously. The first time I had a ham and cheese baguette in France the flavor was way off compared to a ham and cheese sub in the states. I discovered the ham was dried ham, not processed ham and the cheese was goat cheese. The first breakfast I ordered in France was a meat lovers breakfast. When I got the breakfast it looked like I had three types of beef jerky on my plate. All three meats were dried meats, not processed meats.

    @palandri: I refused to read the alarmist's news article because 1) I love bacon, and 2) about 2 years from now some other study will come out debunking the first (just like eggs, chocolate, milk, and a host of other "dangerous" foods).

    Like you, I believe in moderation for everything.

    And just because I'm a rebel, I'm gunna go make some bacon right now. :notworthy:
