This thing is incredible!

This thing is incredible!

Check that out! This is a shot of what I had for dinner the other night. I was able to knock that whole thing out. Man, I was hungry! Really tasty! It'll set you back 10 bucks but it's not bad for what you get. It's worth it. The place is called Lalo's and it's on 24th St. Not really sure if I should give up my spots and this is one of my favorites. I don't want it to be overrun with folks while I'm trying to squeeze in my 30 minute lunch break. This is real homemade Mexican food. Try to make the staff smile, I bet you can't!

Grilling safety tips for Memorial Day weekend

Grilling safety tips for Memorial Day weekend

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of grilling season and the California Department of Public Health wants everyone to have a delicious and safe BBQ experience. This video features Food Safety Chief Pat Kennelly providing grilling safety tips to keep you and your family healthy all season long! Ensuring that the food you serve is safe is as simple as following these practical approaches:

  • Wash your hands with warm, soapy water before and after handling food.
  • Make sure your utensils and food contact surfaces are clean.  Never put fresh vegetables or ready to eat foods on cutting boards or platters used for raw meat or poultry unless the surfaces have been thoroughly washed with soap and water.
  • Thaw your frozen meat and poultry in a refrigerator, not on the kitchen counter.  Make sure that juices from thawing meats cannot drip onto other food in the refrigerator.
