Holy moly oly! It has been a crazy past two days of traveling to San Francisco. I’m out here right now touring the Stitch Fix headquarters and facilities to see how such an amazing and ever-growing company is run! It’s insanity. This company started about 5 years ago and has expanded by so much and even has a mens line that just came out. But all that info is for another blog post next week when I have some cool photos to show you. So for now…let’s talk about my travel experience on Tuesday.
What the f*ck is wrong with people. Let’s just start with that. I’m not sure where people were raised or if they just do not care about hygiene, but where I’m from, you’re polite, you’re not totally disgusting, and you’re aware of the world around. But in airplanes, that just doesn’t seem to be the case. Exhibit A: While flying on Tuesday afternoon, I noticed a rather pungent smell. Like vinegar. But you know when something smells awful on a flight, you know it’s just most likely McDonald’s…because it’s poison. Well, I smelled this vinegar-type smell and automatically thought sandwich, someone is just grubbing down on a sandwich. And I moved on to listening to the podcast Serial and minding my own business. But when I felt a bump on my elbow that was on the arm rest, I glanced down to find A BARE FOOT! And no, it was not a f*cking pedicured well-to-do foot. It was a vinegar-smelling, callused-line, toenail-broken foot. That touched me. That sandwich vinegar smell that I was smelling was a human being. And believe me, I’m not saying my feet smell any better, but I’m sure AF not taking off my shoes and putting my feet up where someone else is sitting. Because I’m not disgusting. And I use my brain.
That being said, I’m also not a person who would make a scene about it. I don’t want to make a person feel embarrassed by screaming YOURESODISGUSTINGIHATEYOUSOMUCH or by poking his foot and asking what is wrong with him. So I went about my business…snapchatting my disgusting experience like any polite person would do…and prayed for the flight to land. Then once I arrived in the SF airport, I noticed a woman walking barefoot carrying her flip flops. At this point, I’ve been in 2 airports in uncomfortable booties and I’m not taking my swollen feet out of my shoes on or off the airplane. You know where I took my shoes off? In my hotel room, by myself. Like a normal person would do. I just seriously still can’t believe this dude. And from what I could tell, he wasn’t even drunk. Just a sober dude, being disgusting. I can’t effing even.
On a lighter note, the weather has been wonderful in San Francisco. Of course, it’s a live circus out there…I did see a guy get punched and knocked out last night. What an interesting place. BUT. speaking of wonderful (2 sentences ago), you MUST try this recipe. I recently cut out eggs from my diet (still eating them once in a while, if I’m out to breakfast or traveling) just because my skin seems to break out when I eat them. SO that leaves me needing to get creative in the morning. Luckily, Mina has an amazing Moroccan shakshuka sauce that makes meal prep easier than ever. And this meal is so stupid easy. Make it in big batches and take it on the go! It’s delightful!
- 2 sweet potatoes, diced
- 2 tablespoon ghee, melted
- pinch of salt
- 1 pound breakfast sausage
- 1 jar of Mina's Shakshuka Sauce
- 4 cups thinly sliced kale*
- just a little bit of salt
- green onions, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place diced sweet potatoes on the sheet then toss with melted ghee and a sprinkle of salt. Place in oven to bake for about 30 minutes, until sweet potatoes are slightly crispy yet soft on the inside.
- While sweet potatoes are cooking, place breakfast sausage in a large saute pan over medium heat. Break up with a wood spatula into small pieces, until no pink remains and sausage becomes slightly crispy. Then add the jar of shakshuka sauce along with kale and mix to combine. Let simmer for about 10 minutes, until kale is soft and cooked through. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt then mix.
- Serve a scoop of sweet potatoes with a scoop of the breakfast sausage mixture on top and freshly sliced green onions for garnish!
