Baked beats fried

Gourmet Magazine once flippantly observed that every country in Europe thinks they invented apple pie. They're all wrong, considering the tree is native to Kazakhstan.

The record shows that you recommended Mee Sum to me perhaps multiple times. Best my wifi (this is cutting-edge shorthand for "my wife and I", with a very, very longhand explanation) did is still Piorshky Piroshky. Time of day issues. Weird that it's the storefronts across from Pike that are the best. But still within strict 8-5 business hours, almost exclusively.

I have GOTTA get them state fair TX things before too long. There will be so many Hank Hills on site. I will Boomhauer.
