What I had for dinner on Tuesday, July 10, 2012

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 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 [...]

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 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 [...]

On our way to Reno, ambitiously trying to make Eugene after work, we made it as far as Portland on Friday night.

I took the train down to Tacoma to meet G. and puppies in truck there. We hit the road but got stuck in traffic between Tacoma and Oly as usual. We had plans [...]

We went out to the pub to meet friend K. who was an intern at Laughing Crow last year, and who we have barely seen since the season ended. It was good to hang out even though I was totally exhausted for some reason.

I had pub sloppy joes. They use grass-fed beef for everything [...]

We had intended to have carnitas (it’s a theme) but then friend Shannon found that there were no tickets for West Side Story on Thursday, which we had been planning, so if we wanted to go we had better go today (Tuesday). So we did; G. met us in town at Le Pichet for dinner, [...]

Friend H. came over to hang out and have dinner. She brought Island-grown venison sausage, and we served it with boiled Laughing Crow potatoes and homemade sauerkraut made with Laughing Crow cabbage and onions — basically all of which H. helped grow, as she worked there last season. It was delicious.

Then we drank a [...]

We went out to the Pub to meet friend E.J., who interned on farms out here for two years and then spent the last season on a CSA farm in Alaska. We had a really good conversation about what we’ve learned, and where we’re going, and how to get there. We also had dinner. I [...]
