What I had for dinner on Wednesday, July 18, 2012

We had a difficult-yet-good couples therapy appointment from 4:30-5:30. I suggested we walk around the block afterwards and then after that I thought maybe we should go on a small date. We ended up at the counter of Hitchcock again, where we each had a Hitchcock Martini (this month it’s gin, cardamom bitters, and some [...]

Friends Anne and Ryan are in town for like a month. We have all been looking forward to going to Hitchcock together for a while, and they were able to get a babysitter for tonight, so we got reservations.

We got the chef’s tasting menu — we set a price limit of $40 and then [...]

I went out to dinner with new friend Donna! We went to Stubbs. I had pork with sides of stewed collards and fried okra. It was delicious!

What I had for dinner on Saturday, March 10, 2012

I went to a MetaFilter meetup! We had pizza, and I had a few pieces. I hitched a ride home about 10pm, Texas time (thanks to nightwood and wife for the ride! I am pretty sure I was super obnoxious, post-whiskey; sorry and thanks for your wonderful hospitality) and video-chatted with G. while I ate [...]

I was freaking out getting ready for my trip to a conference in Austin, so we ordered a pizza.

We met farmer mentor Betsey at the Pub for dinner. G. got a big-ass plate of nachos and Betsey got the vegetarian poutine, which is sweet potato fries with salsa and other deliciousness on them. I ate from both their plates and was happy.

We drove home from Davis to our house in one straight shot. I can’t drive the truck, too, so it was all G. all the way.

We hit Eugene at dinnertime-ish, which was good because I had made loose plans with my old friend T. to meet up. We went to Pegasus Pizza at Oakway [...]

What I had for dinner on Monday, February 20, 2012

We had plans to have dinner with P. and J., who have had a stressful few weeks (… years) so we went with their standard comfort food, which is Whole Foods deli/steam tray stuff. I had some broccoli, some carrots-and-bok-choy thing, and some mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy. I don’t know, it made sense at [...]

What I had for dinner on Sunday, February 19, 2012

We had dinner with my dad and his wife. We went to Palais de Jade, a Chinese restaurant that is inexplicably named in French. Actually I guess it is explicable — they probably do it to sound fancy. It is a pretty all right restaurant though so I can’t blame them for trying to stand [...]

What I had for dinner on Saturday, February 18, 2012

We rolled into Reno at about 8:13. I had been trolling Yelp looking for a likely place and we had settled on a Mexican restaurant just a couple blocks from our motel. We had a bit of trouble finding it but then we found it (in a strip mall; where else?) and we pulled in [...]
