Street Buns, Street Buns, Street Buns! From McDonalds – See Where Your Egg McMuffin Bread Gets Put Before You Buy It

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

This isn’t literally on Haight Street – it’s on the short road drivers use to get from Haight Street to the McDonalds parking lot next to Amoeba Records. This is where cars would drive thru if this store had a drive-thru window.

I guess the pavement suffices when employees need a place to put the buns down temporarily:

(Next time I pass through, I’ll check to see if they still offer the McDouble at the loss-leader, giveaway price of  just a dollar. McDonaldsese’s Dollar Menu has been updated nationally recently, and some local franchises have used that opportunity to raise McDouble prices to $1.29.  This particular franchise on Haight Street was famous a couple of years back for  banishing the Dollar Menu in order to, purportedly, cut down on the general hippie/streetkid population in the area.)

Now I’ve seen everything.

(Now, how about a cable cooking show where the host takes bible recipes and updates them for today’s times? I’d certainly watch that (if I had cable TV, which I don’t.)

All the deets:

“Bread. And Better!™

Ezekiel 4:9® products are crafted in the likeness of the Holy Scripture verse

It’s this special, unique combination of 6 grains and legumes that harvests benefits beyond what we normally expect from our breads, pastas, cereals, and other foods.

  • Source of Complete Protein - Rated 84.3% as efficient as the highest source of protein (comparable to that of milk or eggs)
  • Contains 18 Amino Acids - Including all 9 essential amino acids
  • Increased Digestibility - Sprouting breaks down starches in grains into simple sugars so your body can digest them easily.
  • Increased Absorption of Minerals – Sprouting breaks down enzyme inhibitors, so your body can more easily absorb calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc.
  • Increased Vitamin C - Sprouting produces vitamin C.
  • Increased Vitamin B - Sprouting increases the vitamin B2, B5 & B6.
  • Great source of Fiber - Combining sprouted grains and legumes gives a good amount of natural fiber in each serving.

And as is true with all our Food for Life Sprouted Grain Products, we only use the very best ingredients and baking methods to ensure you truly get the very most out of your food.

  • We use only freshly sprouted certified organic live grains.
  • Our products are kosher.
  • We use absolutely no flour. Studies have shown that grinding grains into flour increases the surface area upon which enzymes in the body can work to more. quickly convert starch into glucose.
  • We don’t’ use any genetically modified organisms (GMO’s)
  • We don’t use refined sugars. When sugar is refined and processed there are many harmful ingredients that are added to the sugar as a result. Instead, we use malted barley, a natural sweetener produced from sprouted barley, which is basically a carbohydrate comprised mostly of complex carbohydrates rather than the “sugar” carbohydrates.
  • We don’t use anything artificial – no preservatives or shortenings.
  • We use a unique slow-bake process to preserve the natural fiber and bran benefits of grains.

Can a Seagull Swallow Half a Bagel Whole? Apparently

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Well, if a seagull can gulp down an entire squirrel (don’t click, I’m srsly.), then I suppose a half-bagel, or actually, half a half bagel should pose little problem, but this critter just couldn’t figure it out.

This bird seem baffled:

If the Line for Your FiDi Lunch at the Sentinel is Too Long, You Can Always Try Golden West Near Sutter and Montgomery

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Of course the line for sandwiches at The Sentinel these days can still be quite long, but don’t forget about the Sentinel’s little brother, highly-rated Golden West at 8 Trinity Place just up the hill from Sutter and Montgomery.

What’s happened over the past year is that Sentinel customers are now going to GW as a substitute for short rib sandwiches and whatnot.

The whole joint is just two windows, one to order and one to pick up. See?

Gold! I love goooold!

Click to expand ($79 is the price of a parking ticket on Trinity Alley and, if you don’t pay within a month, the cost goes up to $196.97, or something*)

Here’s a recent lunchtime menu:

They’re open from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM Monday through Friday.

Join the (small) crowd.

See you there!

Feeding the Ducks at Golden Gate Park – Is That a Bad Thing or Not?

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

I always thought that it might be against the rules to feed animals in Golden Gate Park, but I never really knew for sure. These days, there’s a movement afoot to amend the San Francisco Park Code to prohibit feeding animals “wild by nature and not customarily domesticated.”

Here’s the rule as it stands now:

SEC. 5.07. FEEDING ANIMALS PROHIBITED It shall be unlawful for any person to feed or offer to any animal in any park any substance which would be likely to be harmful to it. (Added by 603-81, App. 12/18/81)”

Does it hurt a duck to feed it bread? No se. Is it against the rules to feed a duck in Golden Gate Park under the existing rules? Even our Lawgivers seem to be uncertain as to how this would all work.

The operator of the Stow Lake Boat House has this sign up at the snack bar, not that the birders would approve.

Here’s a sign at San Francisco Botanical Garden (nee Strybing) inside of GGP. The people at Strybing, they say stuff like “we don’t feed the animals” but I don’t think they have any special rules just for them because their signs only cite existing section 5.07:

Irregardless, lots of people think its their right to feed San Francisco’s ducks, so I’m not sure that Park Rangers would relish handing out enough citations to get people to change their behavior.

It’s probably not a good thing for you to feed the ducks but I don’t think anybody will try to stop you if you put your mind to it. (Although if you’re around state or federal authorities, they might have a whole set of different rules for you to obey.) 

Of course Park employees used to carry around cans of cat food to feed the red foxes of Strybing, but they’re no longer around.

 

And coyotes, some guy started bringing raw meet into GGP to feed coyotes a while back, but that caused issues so the state of California sent in a man to execute all the coyotes he could find, including this one.

Oh well.

Our supes will hash this issue out and let us know I’m sure.

Seeing Eye to Eye with the Hungry Fish of Stow Lake

Monday, April 6th, 2009

This decently-sized fish just couldn’t get enough wonderful Rainbow Bread (can you see a slice getting devored on the left?) the other day at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park. Keep a look out for these critters when you rent a boat at Stow, just a stone’s throw away from the de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences.
