Then we got a little cooking demo by Brandon Miller (local chef...just left Stokes (where we had our last anniversary dinner) who is now at Mundaka (Spanish restaurant that I want to try...next anniversary?)) He and the host (Mark from EB Farms) thought they were comedians.
The dish we got to try was so good (warm summer squash w/almonds).
I thought we were cool to take a picture with someone who has famous chef friends. He has worked under Michael Chiarello (and confirmed he's not the nicest person to work with...I just saw that not nice side of Mr. Chiarello on Top Chef Masters). And he's friends w/Mario Batali.
Anyway, we're excited to go again at next month's where we'll get tomatoes! You know I love tomatoes.
Justin you should be the new cover model for S'mores Magazine.
And I should not. So busy stuffing my face with these gourmet s'mores ingredients: Graham crackers, chocolate covered graham crackers, home-made graham crackers, lemon cookies, butter waffle cookies, french butter cookies, snickerdoodles, and other cookies/crackers I can't remember, Whole Foods vanilla bean & also peppermint marshmallows, a huge assortment of Ghirardelli chocolate squares, a variety of fancy dark chocolate, milk chocolate w/hazelnuts, milk chocolate w/caramel, Andes mints, 3 Musketeers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, fresh strawberries/bananas/raspberries, coconut, slivered almonds, peanut butter, almond butter, nutella...
My favorite (that I'm modeling above): butter waffle cookies w/vanilla bean marshmallows and raspberries. Chocolate not necessary.
This is my favorite kind of date night...bonfire w/friends, s'mores, and Catch Phrase.
Remember my jeans I found at the farmer's market? They're like 4 inches too long. I took them to a tailor who wanted $35 to hem them w/the original cuff. I paid $40 originally and didn't want to turn my awesome deal into a not so awesome one at $75. So I thought I could do it myself using Stephanie's tutorial. But apparently I can't follow directions. I did the right leg first and it was still too long. I thought I knew what I did wrong so I did it different on the left and now that one is too short!
So excuse me while I go buy a seam ripper.
When I get this right I will be wearing these jeans every day.
And that tailor would've deserved her $35.
PS Stephanie...it's not your tutorial. It's me. All me.
K I could take this down now...they're all fixed and the perfect length!
