Real Girl's Kitchen: Softball Follies

She's kinda like this. - WIKIPEDIA
 I’ve taken to calling Haylie Duff by Duff Everlasting, after the book Tuck Everlasting that I had to read when I was a kid. She is “everlasting” because she’s constantly on, constantly plugging her book, constantly fake-real. Man I’m hard on this chick. She seems nice enough — she just reminds me of girls I have spent my entire life avoiding.

This week her goddamn model friend is back and they plan on playing softball with a group of guys, girls against the boys. They also challenge the men to a cook-off of sorts; each side brings lunch and a winner will be chosen. Duff was being tricky though because she knew the girls would lose the softball game but could win the food olympics.

First she creates a beet salad with goat cheese, something that I wouldn’t think would travel well to a ballpark. The model acts like she’s never seen a beet or ever tasted vinaigrette; perhaps she’s just not used to eating, period. Then they head to Fat Sal’s sandwich shop and build a ridiculous bunch of them with fried mozzarella sticks, french fries, an egg, and philly cheese steak all shoved into buns. Lunch wouldn’t be complete without her signature strawberry shortcake in mason jars (from her cookbook — did she mention she has a cookbook?) which is something I’ve frankly seen done about a million times before. Still, it’s always pretty adorable.
Cue the predictable trash-talking and OMG LOL WTF litany while they shove the food in. Good times.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
