*Dining Out for Life* San Francisco this Thursday, April 30!

One of San Francisco's top dining moments of the year, Dining Out for Life is back this Thursday, April 30!

Here's an idea: Hit SF Station's monthly happy hour at Atmosphere, then dine out at a participating restaurant (see below) to fling some of your hard-earned cash at one of the absolute best causes on the planet.
Hugs and have fun!



The STOP AIDS Project and Wells Fargo invite you to the 8th Annual
Dining Out for Life presented by San Francisco's own SKYY Vodka, SF
Weekly, and CBS 5/The CW Bay Area!

Simply dine at one of our participating restaurants on Thursday, April
30, 2009 and 25 percent of your food bill will benefit the HIV
prevention programs of the STOP AIDS Project.


Last year Dining Out for Life raised over $220,000 thanks to people
like you. This year promises to be even bigger and better but we can't
do it without your help. Call one of our participating restaurants and
make your reservation today. It will be one of the most satisfying
meals you ever eat. Be sure to tell everyone you know to eat out on
April 30th and thank you for your support.

Sayonara Goat Cheese, These Beet Quesadillas Take JACK!

Dear Readers,

I've been off the job for a while, but I aim to be back! Lately I've been making a lot of roasted beet, scallion, kale, and jack cheese quesadillas. THEY ARE DELISH!

Wha, no goat cheese?

That's right. Whatev, chevre.

Now, I love me some goat cheese, but beets and goat cheese? Yes they are also delish together, but they are also very 1999.

So treat yourself to this beety treat! (Hard to find anything but goat cheese as a beet's best friend on the worldwide internet web, but then I found this Wash Post piece!)

Roast a bunch of sliced beets, beet greens, chopped kale and scallions, all spread out on a baking pan in peanut oil, chile flakes, salt and pepper (and a few smashed raw garlic cloves? why not!), at roughly 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Don't crowd your pan! Less is more when it comes to crisp vegetable edges.

Then kick it up to a broil for 10 minutes or so.

Saute up some little corn tortillas and get some jack cheese slices melting up on there. Feeling awesome? Want to get crazy? Use extra sharp cheddar instead! OR aged gouda! WHO CARES, JUST SO IT IS a MELTING CHEESE!

Then lay down some beets, greens and scallions up on there. Fold your quesadilla. Commence to melting and commingling.

Top with fresh guacamole and if you're smart enough to stock it, some green jalapeno hot sauce AND some thick, opaque red hot sauce like Tamazula or Salsa Huichol (my personal knock-down, drag-out favorites).


p.s. Hard to find anything but goat cheese as a beet's best friend on the worldwide internet web, but then I found this Wash Post piece!

p.p.s. Um, canst thou forgive me for reposting this total non sequitur photo of badger babies from Cute Overload? Um, how couldst I resist!?!
