The Eatsdropper is the new French fry

I know I've been far from prolific lately. One would think that, being self-unemployed and all, I'd have nothing but time to cook and write and entertain you with my kitchen shenanigans. Fact is, while I have been cooking a lot, my time has been otherwise occupied with things like walking the dog, taking the occasional exercise and … a supertopsecret project that I will reveal soon enough. I do intend to get back to meatier posts here, but in the meantime, here's a little amuse bouche to whet your appetite.


Clerk: "The ravioli in the Lucca box are ours."
Customer: "Why are they called Lucca?"
Clerk: "Because
that's our name."
Customer: "Oh, really, I thought you were Molinari. You used to
have the Molinari ravioli."
Clerk: "We've always been Lucca."
Customer: "Oh well I
used to get Molinari ravioli here. I guess I haven't been in here in a long
time."

Diner: "Whoa. This smells like a carnival. And not the sweaty carnie side."

– Eatsdropped by Genie at Bocanova

Coworker: "Moe's is like an upper-scale Taco Bell"

– Eatsdropped by Broderick at work

Man: "I love the supple skin of Meyer lemons. It's like the teen porn of
citrus."

Woman: "No, the dinner comes BEFORE the sex!"

Temra Costa: "Asparagus is the new French fry."

  1. Ha! This is an excellent amuse bouche, my friend — and I’m not just saying that because I’ve got two of the quotes on the list!

  2. I’m pretty excited to hear about your top secret project! Those are hilarious.And that strawberry jam looks to die for…

  3. Actually, being self-employed is MORE work than being fully employed by someone else. I never would have believed it, either, until I made the switch. Now, I’m like you — no time, no time, no time. 😉
