Weekends are usually busy, but this past weekend was busy, relaxing, enjoyable, AND all about food. Yours was likely about the same way.
Smith kicked it all off with his delicious latkes made with our homegrown potatoes. We had neither sour cream nor apple sauce, and since we like both, this was a travesty. Thankfully the grocery stores are open Thanksgiving morning and I scored what we needed to make them a perfect T-day breakfast.
Monica and Steve invited us for Thanksgiving dinner and the food was fabulous. How she stayed cool and calm while cooking for 20 people I don't know. The following picture does not do her pie skills justice.
Friday a bunch of the grrlfriends went to lunch at Red Iguana, but I had camnesia. I only thought about taking a picture as everyone drove away, which I believe is a sure sign we were in the moment (and having a good time).
Have you ever had Ethiopian food? Well Cheryl, her Pontiff, Smith and I decided to give it a try. The cuisine was met with varying degrees of success. This plate of food is about 16" across (service for one!) and I ate almost all of it (the rice being the exception). Why eat rice when you can have so many other wonderful flavors?
Smith and I finished the weekend with a quick trip up to Park City, as we knew a pending storm would take away the warm sunny days we've had of late. We shared a bowl of tomato soup and a burger (the restaurant kindly split them both in the kitchen). The soup was so rice and flavorful and the burger was the best I've had in a long time.
Bad photos, great food, fun people, and time to relax. It's what I call a perfect weekend, although I won't be eating much until Christmas.
