A HOMEMADE SOAP BOX DERBY Photos by Michelle Le

Submitted by Brett Anstrom, 12, of Portola Valley, a member of Menlo Park Boy Scout Troop 222.

O

n Sunday afternoon, Feb. 13, more than 30 scouts with Menlo Park’s Troop 222 raced their homemade soap box derby racecars down a steep hill on Lawler Ranch Road in Woodside. Seven Patrols built six racecars over the last two months in a local cabinet shop. The gravity-powered cars raced in two-car heats, covering the 600-foot race course in approximately 30 seconds. Each car was brightly colored showing the individual style of each patrol. Parents, grandparents, and siblings were thrilled by the sight of the racecars as they crossed the finish line

and the Scouts hit the brakes. After each of the heats, all the cars went to the inspection area to make sure they were safe to drive. The Scouts quickly made several minor repairs to keep the race moving smoothly. Once the racecars cleared the final safety inspection, the Boy Scouts quickly pushed the racecars back to the starting line at the top of the hill, for the next heat. It was a lot of fun working with my patrol, the Penguins, to build the patrol’s car. I am looking forward to the results of our patrol’s averaged time. While the test run was scary for me, the actual race was really fun. I can’t wait to do this again next year. All of us Scouts would like to say a huge thank you to the generous sponsorship of our cars and this event

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On February 28, 2011, at 12:30 PM, at the Marshall St. entrance to the Hall of Justice and Records, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA, MTC FINANCIAL Inc. dba Trustee Corps, as the duly appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded on February 6, 2006, as Instrument No. 2006-017490 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of San Mateo County, CA , executed by: Michael R Mish, an unmarried man, as Trustor, in favor of Suntrust Mortgage, Inc. as Beneficiary, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED ON SAID DEED OF TRUST. The property heretofore described is being sold "as is". The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 231 Cuesta Real, La Honda, CA 94020 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Trustee's Sale is estimated to be $443,034.90 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale.

In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right.

“If I want a Best Seller, I advertise in the Almanac and the Weekly.� – Lyn Jason Cobb As a Realtor serving Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside, I do my utmost to provide extraordinary service to my clients. The Almanac and the Palo Alto Weekly is always where I advertise first because I like the home delivery, editorial focus, and it is a great value. I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weekly’s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. I’ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my ‘Open Homes’ to see what I have listed.�

“The Almanac has been a trusted part of my Real Estate marketing strategy.� “It is an excellent way to get information out to people in my market sphere because it is an excellent newspaper. It carries area news and features that people in Woodside, Portola Valley and Atherton want to know about. When I list exceptional homes and estates, I want to get the word, and the pictures, out. The Almanac is a great way to do that.� – Ed Kahl

CURBSIDE CURBSIDE /aU_UZQ New Menlo Park food truck turns lunch into a moveable feast By Jane Knoerle Almanac Lifestyles Editor

hen Kathleen Jensen’s Butterscotch on the Go truck opened for business recently in Menlo Park, it joined one of the hottest trends in food. Food trucks are all the rage, according to a survey of 1,500 professional chefs by the National Restaurant Association. In big cities, the trucks are everywhere, often featuring a single specialty, such as macaroni and cheese, Korean tacos, sushi, ice cream sandwiches, or creme brulee. In September, “Edgewood Eats,” a neighborhood-organized event, attracted 300 diners to Edgewood Plaza Shopping Center in Palo Alto, where mobile gourmet-food vendors sold dinner in the parking lot. The craze has finally made its way to Menlo Park, where most of us are familiar only with taco trucks or trucks serving construction workers. Butterscotch on the Go takes curbside dining to a different level. After working as a personal chef for 10 years, Kathleen Jensen of Menlo Park decided what she really wanted to do was focus on food and interact with more people. A food truck seemed the perfect solution. She and her husband, retired Menlo Park police

C

chief Bruce Goitia, purchased an aging Red Cross disaster relief truck to use as a mobile kitchen. While the truck was being refurbished, Ms. Jensen began a wholesale dessert business selling baked goods to local cafes. She named it Butterscotch Bakery after her favorite flavor. After the truck was ready for business, Butterscotch Bakery became Butterscotch on the Go. Inspired by the open-face sandwiches served in France (tartines), Ms. Jensen features them on her food truck menu, in addition to regular sandwiches, salads, seasonal soups, and desserts. A sample menu includes a beef tenderloin sandwich with caramelized onions on a toasted baguette; a salami, mozzarella and roasted tomato sandwich on artisan bread; and a chicken club tartine with chicken, aioli, bacon, roasted tomatoes and melted fontina served on ciabatta. Another open-face selection is prosciutto, fig jam, and gorgonzola served on toasted levain (bread). Entree-size salads include the Seville (mixed lettuces, goat cheese, bacon, and spiced pecans with thyme vinaigrette) and the Isabelle (mixed lettuces, walnuts, apples, smoked cheddar, dried cranberries and cider vinaigrette).

Above: A tartine, made with prosciutto, gorgonzola cheese, and fig jam, is a Butterscotch on the Go specialty. The cover photo shows Kathleen Jensen preparing sandwiches inside her food truck.

The sweets selection features her signature dish: butterscotch pudding with smoked almond brittle and (real) whipped cream. Food trucks traditionally roam the streets, often settling in a different location, keeping in touch with customers on Twitter and Facebook. Butterscotch on the Go is no exception. “We will also have a calendar on our website,” she says. As a new venture, Butterscotch on the Go is operating in the Bohannon Industrial Park area of east Menlo Park three days a week, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Kathleen Jensen has been interested in food since she received an Easy Bake Oven at age 6. While pursuing a highpowered career in retail, she found time to do catering for friends. She began working as a personal chef when her daughter, now 13, was born.

Although she never attended culinary school, she has taken many cooking classes locally and in San Francisco. As the new business gets on its feet, Ms. Jensen says, her husband is helping out by driving the truck, while she presides over the kitchen. Later, she hopes to hire more staff. All the salads and sandwiches are assembled on site. Prep work is being done in the commercial kitchen at Studio Cakes in Menlo Park. One family member who doesn’t share Kathy Jensen’s interest in gourmet food is her daughter, Isabelle. Ms. Jensen says she’s a “picky eater,” preferring American cheese and canned soup to her mother’s fancy fare. For more information, search online for Butterscotch on the Go.
