I’m Actually Asleep Right Now, and I’m Dreaming About These…

Published in: Daily Beauty

I know, I’m talking about food again. Sorry! What can I say? The PMS is raging right now like a culinary maelstrom, and no amount of calories can satiate it.


I would seriously consider trading my tubby tabby for a plate of these plantain chips and some Puerto Rican food right now…

I took these pics during lunch last weekend at Sol Food in San Rafael.

Mmm… Fried plantain chips (with sort of a Thousand Island-ish dipping sauce).


I had a po’ boy sandwich with breaded, fried shrimp. Guhghll… So good.

El Hub had the pollo al horno plate with roasted chicken, beans, rice, a salad with lemon vinaigrette and two fried plantains (one sweet and one garlic).

I may be sleeping right now (it’s 2 a.m. out here in Cali), but I don’t care. I AM SO HUNGRY, DUDE! 🙂

    Major chips cravings!! But…must…resist!!! I’m saving some tummy space for this week ahead, it’s my Birthday next wednesday and I’m gonna have way too much carrot cake! 😀

    Also…is it normal there to name dishes in Spanish? (Pollo al horno)

      Hi Chic Lapin,

      Absolutely. Spanish has a lot of influence on everyday things here, and not just here but all over the US. Happy pre-birthday (and TGIF!). 🙂

    Dude! I actually ate there once! When I lived in California, I had a friend in San Rafael and one of his mandatory stops was this place and it was delish! Now I am in the freezing midwest and thanks to those pictures, am dreaming of Sol Food too!

  11. I had no idea what those chips thingies were until I started reading 🙂 Interesting! I bet they’re yum! Otherwise you wouldn’t be fantasizing about them, right? 🙂

    Oh, Karen – you are brave in your sleep. I hope Tabs didn’t read that you were even *considering* a trade. If he did, he’ll be a taskmaster today! 🙂

    Sour Patch Kids. That’s where it’s at. I can’t stop drooling over them and bought a bag yesterday. Such a ridiculous craving! Of course now I want chips too.

    You should come over here just to eat a massive sandwich (seriously, they put Subway’s 12 inches to shame and more) from La Guarina. Really cheap, too 😀 This country has its faults, but food ain’t one of them!

    I’m glad you’re enyoing food from my country ! And the thousand island-ish dipping sauce we call it here mayo-ketchup. Love your blog 🙂
