I'd really love to get involved with Burning Man someday. I've never been but have helped a friend with his art project.

Once we get settled here in Seattle I'm planning on jumping in with both feet.

I accomplished 1, was accepted to 2, and still working on 3, pulled off 4 and no longer want to do 5.

LOL

Dave,

Murray has done 1 and 2 (Did you know that the CIA offers a Masters? It costs a small fortune. It would be less expensive to earn a medical degree from some schools than it would be to pay for the CIA's tuition.) We're working on 3, wouldn't mind doing 4 and would love to do 5, albeit we'd also be a little terrified of doing things like the books and setting up group health insurance.

We look forward to meeting you as you work on 3.

Your friends,

And Later That Same Day . . .

So after we had brunch at Canteen, we went to the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco and then went to Gemma's best friend's niece's party to celebrate her graduation from UCLA.

We had grilled chicken and carne asada with grilled scallions and Nicaraguan cabbage salad and rice.

Murray made a huge devil's food cake with bittersweet chocolate ganache. We think that some guests decided to forego dinner in order to have dessert first.

Last night we had grilled ribeye steaks with kimchi and, yes, you guessed it, rice.

Grilled (rare) fresh sushi-grade ahi lightly seasoned with lavendar and rosemary, wild and brown rice, and broccoli, followed with a berry sorbet. Disappeared before I could remember the camera.

Dinner Out

We were in Pleasant Hill this evening and had dinner at Jack's http://www.yelp.com/biz/jacks-restau...-pleasant-hill with Gemma's mom.

We started out at the bar with the Mediterranean Plate - warm grilled pita, hummus, taboulleh, tzatziki and olives, and the fried calamari.

We then moved to the dining room where Murray had an iceberg wedge salad and three cheese macaroni, Gemma had the spaghetti and clams, and Moms had the petrale sole. We ordered a slice of cheesecake to go since we were stuffed, but couldn't resist. No rice! Plenty of carbs nonetheless!

Grainy iPhone images below of Gemma and Murray's entrees. (We were a little embarassed to ask Moms to wait so we could capture an image of her entree.)

Catching Up

We had lunch, so not really dinner, but we had dinner food, does that count? We say, "YES!"

We took our friends Ruth and Carmella (Mame on AirForums) who were visiting from Portland to Tu Lan - Vietnamese Cuisine on September 24th. It's a hole in the wall and admittedly the interior probably hasn't been painted since the Carter administration but Julia Child has eaten there and raved about it. Tu Lan - SOMA - San Francisco, CA

We both had the Bun Thit Cha Gio. Grilled, marinated pork with spring rolls over a "salad" of cold rice noodles, grated carrots, shredded lettuce, herbs, bean sprouts and chopped peanuts with a nam pla (fish sauce) "dressing".

Jackson Potluck

Hi Neil -

Well, we'll definitely bring some funky and pretentious cheese from Cowgirl Creamery. We have a huge chunk of roquefort sitting in our fridge right now, just waiting for Friday night's happy hour. You can count on Red Hawk and Mount Tam, burrata, manchego, some goat cheese and possibly some mimolette. Of course, we'll also bring some honeycomb. It's already packed in the trailer!

We're not sure what to bring for Saturday's potluck. We made a side of salmon with fennel and fuji apple relish for Casini's potluck in April. We made achiote chicken with grilled pineapple and mango salsa the last time we came to the rally in Jackson. People really seem to like that. We're thinking of grilling some lamb brochettes and serving them with maybe a relish of persian cucumbers, tomatoes and feta or a Moroccan orange, red onion and olive salad. We definitely won't be bringing any shrimp - don't want to compete with Vinnie's awesome shrimp kabobs.

We're so looking forward to the potluck!

Okay, now, what's for dinner?

Your friends,

Salad

Last night we had a crab, avocado and ruby red grapefruit salad with homemade thousand island dressing.

Our stab at going somewhat carb free.

In celebration of Murray's birthday Gemma made . . .

reservations at Cafe Des Amis. Cafe des Amis - Marina/Cow Hollow - San Francisco, CA Cafe des Amis

Murray had the chicory salad and the blanquette de veau (that's veal stew for us Americans), and Gemma had the foie gras terrine (yep - cold, potted liver) and the petrale sole. We shared an order of profiteroles for dessert.

Really dark and grainy image of the petrale sole. It was so dark in the restaurant that we seriously considered making an appointment with our optometrist the very next day. Kinda sad - before we considered candle-lit restaurants romantic and now we're considering bifocals.

Should we say: "WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE!"...... LOL

Your food makes us jealous..., can't get much out here but road kill.

Cheers, Steelegood

Thanks!

Hey there Terry!

Thanks for the B-Day wishes. Yep-bifocals and possibly Geritol are on the horizon.

Now, don't be jealous. We're sure all that southern cooking has been good to you. When we lived in Tennessee, the folks were so friendly and neighborly. The only thing we really missed was the ability to walk into a restaurant at one in the morning and have some Chinese food. But a big whoop, whoop for Waffle House though! (Do you think that if we walked in with our bacon and egg outfits they might take a little off the bill?)

Thanks for contributing to the thread - we really love to hear about what everyone else has for dinner.

Your friends,
