Visiting Ricks Picks

I don’t get out enough to the companies offices.  It is something that I should do more but the reality is that I not a VC but an angel and if I spent time doing that then I wouldn’t be doing what I should be doing which is helping founders in other ways vs getting down into the meat of the team.  When I do go out and meet the team it is bonus and I always leave wishing I did more of that.

rickI went out to Rick of Ricks Picks new office recently.  Got his new card.

rickdeskI love how Rick’s ever growing collection of wooden stamps.

sweetpotatoesWe walked over to Robertas for lunch before I made my way back to the office.  This was a twice baked and mashed white sweet potato with chives, guacamole and runny eggs.  I am still thinking about this dish.

soupA hearty split pea soup.

pizzaOf course a pizza of the moment.  Fall greens tossed in lemon and olive oil over a white pizza.  So delicious.

Really glad I went….

    I’m a big fan. Though need to say that the semi-sours at Russ & Daughters ain’t too shabby.

    Been a fan of Rick’s since I discovered them on your blog and on Foodzie so many years ago. What’s this about jerky? 🙂
