Work hard, play hard has always been a great motto of ours. I think Davidson really defined the term, and Matt and I carry it into our lives.
It’s certainly the motto of the week!!
We worked like crazy all afternoon. When I say “worked like crazy” I mean we jumped from one task to another blindly. There was no direction just “Do this, now do this” over and over until we accomplished a massive to-do list.
Part of my list included scanning 12 employees x 2 sheets x 12 PDFs to email to our payroll service.
And eating Cville Cluster Granola!!
I made a chalkboard open sign, went to the bank, went to the copy shop, hung signs, and more that I can’t even remember.
Calibowls for the Breadboard!! They make such a great community butter + jam bowl because of the inner lip!
And FLOWERS from my grandmother, Smotey and Mary Frances!
At 6 I think everyone wanted to go to dinner but Matt and me. We wanted to keep working! Part of the reason GH is here is to help balance us out.
Tomas, the owner, has a nice loaf of Honey waiting for him tomorrow. He made an appearance on KERF recently and we wanted to repay the courtesy!
MAS is cool!!
Drinks were poured
Lauren got this amazing Cucumber + Ginger martini!
But I was in the mood for a big red
We ordered a bunch of delicious bites for the table….prepare to salivate! I sure did.
Hummus con pan (chickpeas, tahini, harissa, olive oil, and garlic with bread)
[Favorite dish of the night – SMOKED!!]
Tomates asados( hot-smoked roma tomatoes in their own juices)
Datil con tocino (fat, juicy, pitted Medjool dates roasted inside of applewood-smoked bacon)
Pescado al Sartén (pan-roasted wild-caught Pacific King Salmon w/ endive, radicchio, grapefruit, fava beans and basil salad)
Gambas al’ parilla (Jumbo shrimp grilled Catalan style-in the shell-w/ garlic alioli and grey salt)
Grass-fed beef over pita with a smoky cheese sauce
Lots of fun. Lots of learning!
First night of the GH series of dinners we’ve gotten dessert!! I think Mike from St. Cloud and I were leaning towards yes
Tart of the Day: Black Cherry + blueberry
Flourless Chocolate Cake!
After dinner, Matt drove me to the bakery and I biked home from there at dusk. It was so peaceful – I really do LOVE bike-commuting. Sometimes it’s scary, sometimes it’s really hot, sometimes my quads burn, but most of the time I just love the flow of the hills and my pedals.
Early to bed, very early to rise!!
