Why did the chikin cross the interstate… Sorry, not sorry… I have not had much time to write my food posts story’s normally they take about 2 hours to write. But I kinda got sidetracked with what started as a simple part swap for one of my 3D printers we decided to rebuild and upgrade everything with new wiring, custom printed parts, nozzles, etc. At the same time I have been teaching Jesse a cad designing program Called fusion 360, and he also wanted to learn more electronics, so now programming and electronics have been throw on the table

When Jesse was 5…

I found this today It is something I wrote about Jesse when he was 5... Today I was taking care of my son Jesse. I sometime wonder where he comes up with stuff that makes me smile or laugh. Today I asked him if he want to start to learn to play an instrument. He said actually a violin... I said wow why not a guitar or drums? He said because he already knew how to play the violin already. Really! Are they teaching you how to play in school? No, I saw some one do it one time

Wepa! Latin food is one of my favorite things to eat and being in NYC is not hard to find or is it? Now if I had said Spanish food that would be a different story. Let me explain and break it down… Latin America what does that mean? It the places that only Spain and Portugal conquered and colonized and the places Spain only colonized is called Hispanic America. Every Latin country has its food and customs and culture. The food may sound the same but it different. So you can not say it’s all Spanish food. Mexican

Get your hotdogs here! Most people have never had tried real Mexican food... Let me break it down to you why… Like everyone at one point I thought I did, I had tacos with ground meat lettuce tomatoes ground beef in a yellow corn shell.

You got mail! I started using a computer in 1986 back then the world was beginning to change but no one knew it yet… I used to communicate using a modem at very low speeds 300 baud to be exact. I used to run a bbs which is a bulletin board service where people could post messages and files for each other. Depending on how many lines you had, sometimes you had to wait and try back when the line was free to log in. There was also ARPANET which I started using which was the real internet the

Marco…! Ok I am going to start right off this dish dates back to over 500 years ago... But tomato’s and pasta never existed in Italy they never heard of them or tasted them. So no spaghetti and meatballs no marinara sauce no pizza. Let me explain everything... The noodle was invented in Asia records show as far back as 4000 years...ok lets move forward. “Yea we know that Marco Polo brought the noodle to Italy” I am not too sure about that.

If you don’t succeed… I remember the first time I and Jesse saw someone in a window on bayard st making hand-pulled noodles. We watch the man twist and pulled noodles until they multiplied into a bowl full of noodles. I went inside and spoke to the manager I asked if it would possible for the master to teach Jesse who was 11 at the time.
