ah... another fabulous day at Ramekins. Yesterday's dinner was stupendous. We had these crunchy little appetizers- won ton wrappers with brie and mushrooms in side. A fabulous tomato salad with panzanella started us off. The main course was chicken piccata with lemon-pistachio cous-cous and asparagus and roasted red pepper bundles. For dessert- hazelnut cakes with buttery bourbon sauce. The chicken piccata was divine- I've never had anything more flavorful! And of course, we had a great deal of fabulous wine- all from the client including one of my all time favorites- Etude pinot noir. Amazing. It was an amazing meal.
Now I have a long weekend and no idea what to do with myself. The horses could all use baths, as could the car, and the kids. We'll probably go swimming. I've been avoiding the horribly aging sun, but now that I see my girls running around with skin the color of coffee beans, I'm a little jealous. Hey, and they are constantly covered in 30 spf waterbabies sunblock(you know, that costs like $400 a bottle- when did sunscreen get so expensive?) So I'm rethinking the whole tanning thing. Quick, someone talk me out of it, I don't want to get skin cancer. Ahh, but I want that honeyed glow. We all know that I'll go out riding one day and forget sunscreen and come back lobster red- may as well control the situation and slowl build up my base tan, right?
Dean's got the girls doing jumping jacks in the living room right now. Heh. Man, I am such a slug, I can hardly move right now.
