Why Dogs and Food?
It's simple. Write about what you love. And what is better than dogs and food? If you are anything like me - and millions of other people - you will relate to and understand the unwavering love I have for my dogs and my passion for cooking - and eating - great food. I hope you will enjoy reading about my day to day experiences with good food and a couple of very special dogs.
Thanks for visiting.

San Francisco Fish and Golden Gate Meat: Magnifique!
How wonderful is it to have so many fabulous fresh food choices under one roof? Let me tell ya.
I have written about my discovery of the Ferry Building Marketplace and my utter delight in surveying the shops and food stands. Even after months of meandering through this merry market place, I still marvel at the menu of meats, fish, pasta and cheeses.
Lately, I have been dropping in on some very special people in some very impressive companies. Those would be the San Francisco Fish Company and the Golden Gate Meat Company.
When my bus delivers me on time at the Ferry Building each evening after work, I have enough time to stroll in and grab some fish or meat or a bag of imported Italian pasta and pesto for dinner.
The San Francisco Fish Company has a variety of fresh catches including Pacific Halibut and Atlantic and Scottish Salmons, to name a few. The the other night I picked up some mild and delicious Sea Bass and baked it in lemon, butter and garlic and served it with fresh asparagus and crusty, rustic French bread. Heaven.
Another night I selected some organic filet mignon steaks from the Prather Ranch Meat Co. - a company that raises, distributes and sells humanely-raised and very flavorful meat products. I grilled these little beauties to pepper-crusted perfection; and finally, last Sunday, I roasted a stunning pork loin from The Golden Gate Meat Company and topped it with apple cider gravy. It was so succulent and tender, it practically melted in our mouths. Tout était si bon!
I am going to pick up a lovely beef tenderloin roast for Saturday night's dinner. I plan to roast this tender piece of meat in the oven with garlic, green onions, mustard and sherry. Elégant!.
Hopefully we will have friends join us so we can share the love.
What are you having for dinner?
