Walked through an empty city after the blizzard
|My landlord cleaned this - thank you!|
|Can you spot the street?|
|Path along Diversey Harbor|
|Diversey Harbor. You can see the tow trucks on LSD way back there.|
Dug my car out:
|Entrance to parking underneath my building.|
|Good thing I put the wipers up|
|My back wheels and trunk were hiding...|
|Took me an hour to dig out - at least it was sunny!|
|That white car has 3 inches of dust underneath the snow. I have never seen it not there - I wonder if it even works anymore. And who owns it.|
|Didn't have room in my freezer for a bigger tray.|
|Screw IQF - they came apart just fine!|
Cooked and cooked:
|Beginnings of Filipino Adobo Chicken|
|Tofu. And yogurt. because I didn't measure the garlic chili sauce. Whoops!|
|2 9-in cake pans, mise en place bowls, orange teapot, turquoise bowl (tag: "not for food"), marble, 8x8 pan, Le Creuset: 10 1/4 rectangle & 9 1/4 square, 2 Bormioli Rocco glass storage jars: just over $100. Awesome.|
Cute bartender: awesome cocktails, before visiting French Vietnam: grilled beef tenderloin strips, Chilean sea bass, mango sundae.
Laughing while drinking half a bottle of wine: baked oysters, chicken breast with mole, vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate-espresso cake
Will definitely go back here again, for a special occasion.
What I've learned:
Friends make good food even better.
Three thunderstorms in Februrary is a beautiful sound of an incoming spring.
