Weekend Roundup

Friday. Met up with some friends for dinner: Mexican food and margaritas. As is often the case when tequila is consumed, especially when tequila is consumed in the presence of an 8-month pregnant woman (she drank juice, don't panic) and a Russian and a German, this turned into bar-hopping and live-music until 2 a.m. It wasn't an over-the-top evening, but it felt good to go to bed at almost 3 a.m., knowing that I've still got "it." Whatever "it" is!

Saturday. Was a bit groggy in the morning, but met C down at the ferry building for a wander through the farmer's market (sampled a few oysters and picked up some tasty white balsamic vinegar -- the best thing ever made -- and dark chocolate, heirloom tomatoes, and parmesian cheese) before dim sum for lunch. We then saw Grizzley Man, which was as shocking, complex, and sublime as I thought it would be (though the director spent way too much time analyzing footage that spoke for itself). Came home in the early evening and hung out with T2's cats (they're out of town) while watching cheesy reality TV over a couple of glasses of Spanish red.

Sunday. Much work to do in anticipation of the work week and friends over for dinner in the evening. Went to the gym early (well, early for a Sunday -- 11 a.m.) and then to the market for some lovely produce for dinner. Spent much of the afternoon cleaning and watching Sex and the City, Season Four before M & B came over for dinner -- a bottle of white and a gorgeous pasta with lox, creme fraiche, spinach, and mushrooms and a simple green salad.

Yum - from the tequila of Friday night to the OYSTERS of the markets and then that sensational pasta of Sunday. You've got me hungry.

The boys were salivating over the pasta (does the recipe sound familiar?)

Had never tried oysters before (well, have had baked and smoked, but not straight from the shell). Yum yum yum.

Oh. My. God. No oysters au naturel? That's my desert island food. I'm glad you like because I am planning to stuff you on beautiful local oysters when you land on our fair shores. Nothing better in the warmer months.

Yes! That's my recipe - too funny!
