Well, I hope to be out of the KC area by the middle of May. Thence to Salem, Oregon. I’ll not miss Brownbackistan one whit. I will have a place to garden and to have a smoker again. No more apartment cooking. Yahoo!
Will be glad to be there.. real strawberries.. not those cardboard ones from Las Califas. Serious wineries, more craft brewing. Hell, I may get me a cajun cooker, too. Quien sabe?
We had house guests from Texas who had been hiking the Appalachian Trail for the past month this weekend. I smoked a pork loin and we had several salads, including a French lentil, goat cheese & arugula salad which was quite nice along with a Martín Codax albariño. This was for Saturday evening.
Sunday we drove to Williamsburg by way of Surrey, crossing on the ferry. We wandered around Merchant’s Square and had a light lunch at Barrett’s off their brunch menu. It was odd that they brought out sticky buns before the meal. We only ate half of one each, leaving two, much to the chagrin of one of the other tables.
“They didn’t eat all of their sticky buns… I can’t b’lieve it!!”
