The “special” See’s candy for November, the Coffee Scotchmallows, are excellent. You can get them in milk or dark–I’ve only had the dark.

NAPA VALLEY - Welcome to the beautiful Napa Valley, California - one of the premiere winery destinations in the United States! Today we have the special opportunity to go on the Wine Train, a historical railroad journey that’s been restored as a gourmet food experience. I’m going to share with you a little behind the scenes of what goes into the Wine Train, and all the delicious food on board!

Nursel sounds interesting. From Elena Kadvany in the SF Chronicle -
Nursel, San Carlos
This new San Carlos restaurant specializes in Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz cuisines. That means dishes such as Russian borscht and plov (a rice pilaf); lagman, an Uzbek soup with hand-pulled noodles and halal beef; and Kuurdak, a roasted meat dish from Kyrgyzstan. For dessert, there are layered Napoleon and honey cakes.
Nursel. Indoor dining and takeout. 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. 601 Old County Road, San Carlos. 650-226-5163
