celebrating Richie’s birthday at Commissary. Roy Choi has a way with vegetables (sort of the theme of Commissary) and sauces. Each dish came out with an incredibly complex – and insane – sauce. And Richie had a gin & beet juice drink.
finally getting a cast-iron pan. Now we have an insanely heavy pan that needs to be constantly moved from the stove-top to the counter, back to the oven…oy.
I already mentioned the Hello Kitty Con Party, but this picture was too funny not to share.
obsessing over squash in general.
having my parents in town! It was a quick weekend, but it was so nice to see them. I <3 them!
still reading Steve Jobs* (it’s taking me a while) and The Thank You Economy*. I loved Gary Vaynerchuk’s Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World* and while The Thank You Economy isn’t as focused on social media, it’s full of great ways to humanize brands.
having dinner at the Church Key, a modern american dim sum restaurant. Imagine a restaurant with an extremely enticing menu, and THEN a dim sum cart visits the table frequently to tempt you with little bites …
watching (and loving) all of the fall shows. We are 65 at heart and like CSI, NCIS, etc. What are you watching?
visiting Stir Market, a “modern California take on the classic European food hall experience” … so essentially they have a small menu/deli selections, coffee bar and high-quality food and wine to purchase. I was in heaven.
getting ready to move this weekend. Our Repax boxes (Reusable, Green Moving Crates) were delivered last night and now we need to fill them before Saturday!
What have YOU been up to lately?
