^I've heard of this mystery and would like to try it, but don't have a lot of ideas for mayo. I wouldn't want to make mayo and have nothing to eat it with! I've never been big on mayo as it is.

Really, cold any meat
Usually when I bother to make my mayo, I make sure I'm making stuff that week that will use it up.
Also note that I've tried making mayo in the food processor, blender, and with my stick blender's whisk attachment. The last one is successful every time. The first two are more hit than miss, and cleaning up broken mayo makes me a sad panda.
The last batch I made was half coconut oil, half olive oil, and set up nice and thick!
My Primal Meanderings
This is kind of an actual frustration for me:
Since going primal, Weekend Brunch is totally ruined for me. In San Francisco, brunch is like the yuppie/techy/hipster version of church, in that its not just a meal, its an extended event complete with socializing, wearing clothes that are at least presentable and decent, extended discussions and planning on what restaurant to visit, etc etc. As you might expect, there are many, many, many places that have awesome brunches, but for most of them, their best brunch combinations and creations are very starch-and-carb heavy. The only high-protein options tend to be eggs or sides of bacon (which I can make at home) or omelettes (which I have rapidly become sick of).
Some places have more luncher-bruncher options, like cuts of meat and burgers and stuff, but not as many as "regular" brunch options. I miss the ability to go out with friends or a special boy and spend an hour, hour and a half, lazily enjoying coffee over some crepes or a fresh belgian waffle.
I get aggravated that I forget I HAVE to tuck my shirt into my jeans so they will fit better since I can not afford new jeans right now. Always unbutton, unzip, tuck tuck tuck...

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
When flying on a plane, what do you do with the leftover part of the seat belt that just flaps around? How annoying I never used to have any.

I'm going to have to get a cushion for my chair here. My tush has gotten so much smaller that now my elbows on the armrests push my shoulders up and my scapulae are tired after a very short time...and my elbows get sore!

we always get some form of eggs benedict while out for brunch. oh, it's a BIG ass deal for us. We usually get: "eggs sharkie" which is bed of spinach, smoked salmon, poached egg and hollandaise with a side of salad and mushrooms in pesto. Add to that some tea/coffee, a fruit bowl, and you have yourself at least 2 hours.
how could places in SF not have such a thing?
