We treated Andrew to an early birthday gift with tickets to Alton Brown's show Edible Inevitable Tour on Friday. It was a lot of fun and Alton Brown was very entertaining. Prior to the show we tried a new Greek restaurant near my office Cafe Mezo. No liquor license yet, but you can bring your own wine with no corkage fee-It was very good and I hope to have a chance to go there for lunch. Mezes means small plates, and they really are small plates.
Esorpion for a cocktail, empanada and some chips and salsa, salsa counts as a vegetable right?! There was a little knitting too.
Poppy Seed Lemon cake. It was good, but I wish it was a little more lemon-y and more moist like a cake made with buttermilk or sour cream. I chose the recipe because it used 8 egg yolks-yikes I know, but it allowed me to use the egg whites for my breakfast for the coming work week. I look forward to trying more of her recipes, and I need to follow her blog.
Finally, the weekend ended with a special trunk show at Cast on Cottage featuring Claudia of Claudia's Hand Painted Yarns. She is not only a talented dyer, but a super nice person as well. I hope she makes another trip to the Cottage at some point. Of course, I did a "little" stash enhancement while I was there-those purchases will be photos for another time.
