|the best coffee I had all week was at the exclusive and elusive Soho House|
Last weekend Shack was working and Hank and I just hung out, not doing very much. It's hard to get excited about doing fun stuff when it's -56999C outside with a windchill that makes it feel like -79954C. When it's just the kid and I, we eat fish because crazy Shack doesn't really like to eat fish. It was nothing fancy, just some nice, simple pan fried steelhead trout on Saturday and then Sunday we watched the Oscars and they had leftovers from the pizza Shack ordered on his way home from work the night before. Just like the beautiful stars on the red carpet who have consumed nothing but lemon water and air for the previous two weeks so they can be suitable dehydrated, slim and light headed for the Oscars, I chose to dine on popcorn and broken dreams and the wish that whatever "Dr" did that to Kim Novack's face should be executed.
|dried chilis are my newest love|
|it just gets better after a day or two|
Thursday was sirloin tip roast day.
|Because I had the time, I cooked the roast early and made paninis with lots of med rare meat, tomato, arugula and provolone.|
|I always feel so happy here|
|I always get the spicy garlic with pork belly so it was time to order something different and I was very happy with my spicy jalapeno with chicken.|
|The Kid had the miso with pork belly|
|Shack thoroughly enjoyed my customary spicy garlic which isn't all that spicy|
|Spicy karasge sadly, was a huge disappointment and tasted like ketchup with a hint of gochujang and we couldn't eat them|
|the bags are huge and you use one bag per quart of water|
|this is a korean brand but the right kind of tea|
I am excited about the upcoming week for two reasons. First of all, Sunday night is the finale of True Detective and I am so in love with this show that I am 2 parts excited to see how it all ends and 3 parts sad because I already miss crazy Rust and sad little Marty. Who or what will the Yellow King turn out to be? Should I make a yellow King cake to serve during the show? Is the Yellow King actually a cake? Will anyone live to tell?
Because of stupid Lyle R Guidroz, we know that there will be a final ritual scene with a guy in a giraffe suit next to the goat headed guy. Asshole
The second reason I am excited is because on Monday I have been invited to a tasting of the launch of their new menu at Lamesa , a modern Filipino restaurant on Queen West. This is a place I have not been to yet but I did eat their arroz caldo when they served it at Recipe For Change. Seeing that their little bowl of Filipino congee with crispy chicken skin remained my absolute favourite dish of the entire event, you could safely say that I am STOKED and will have my feed bib on.
