I have lots of design work and photo editing for food companies to do on the computer today so I would imagine I'll finally get some photos up on the blog during intermissions...and Rob and Lori, you are in for a treat. I know we've been remiss about your house photos but you got some house action finally happening yesterday so I'll treat you guys to a sneak preview when I upload today.<br /><br />We went to Jeffrey's last night for dinner, which was impeccable. We both got haircuts first (not because we were so excited about eating out...it was just long overdue--the haircuts, not eating out.) and Alex left before me when her cut was complete to go home, feed the pet herd, and get ready. When I went out to my car, I found a rose on the windshield. awww.<br /><br />Now, as for Jeffrey's. Go and eat the fried oysters on fried yucca root slivers with a dallop of wasabi cream. .I know, I know, you say you aren't "into" oysters. Pay no mind to such negative self-talk. Trust me. You hadn't yet had these or you wouldn't think such things. You don't even have to eat dinner there. Just grab a cocktail and this appetizer. (We did eat dinner but this was the shining star of the meal.) This has been on their menu for the last 30 years and there is a reason for it. We learned about it on the Food Network. (Thanks Giadda. Even though you ruined the bat viewing for me by showing it to me first on tv even though it has nothing to do with food...you have redeemed yourself. )<br /><br />As for the rest: Scallops: enormous and excellent. Gnocci: excellent<br />Lobster: I prefer it without orange blossum zest. Lemon works better for me. Risotto was the best I've had in years...(FINALLY, a non-clumpy risotto done right) desserts: we only had a bite...could have lived without em. So rich they needed something creamy to balance them and cut the heaviness....Impeccable service...nice small portions so you don't feel awful when you leave too and we like that. That's our 2 cents.<br /><br />Perhaps the small portions were why this morning, even after eating out last night, Alex wanted the egg casserole I wrote up yesterday (it was shared at work and all gone) I doubled the potatoes and it was much better even though it was really good the first time. I also used a heavier hand when seasoning with the West Texas Dust. MMMM<br /><br />You see why we need 40 minutes on the elliptical every day. <br /><br />We have a busy day of work, going to visit Sybil and view the house again in Agave, house stuff here, fixing the Christmas tree cause the lights burned out, writing press releases, and then not speaking for a few hours and having Jiffy Pop for dinner. Alex is all in a twitter because they have just redone the Wizard of Oz into this dark macabre 2007 version mini-series called "Tin Man" which premiers tonight with all kinds of special effects. I can't tell you what kind of elatement this has caused around this household. She's been waiting for a remake since she was around 5 years of age and "The Wiz" just didn't cut it. (Although Wicked was, apparently, an excellent live version) I can't explain the Oz obsession, but I just heard that Nicole Richie shares it. I'm not sure if that's a good thing. She just hit me on the arm. (Alex, not Nicole Richie. I doubt Nicole has the strength.)<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Atimes4/~4/193897261" height="1" width="1" />
