But isn’t that so Seattle!?
I explored to Pike’s Place Market this afternoon in search of a seafood snack.
This city is FREEZING COLD!
I found lots of seafood! Oh how I wish I had a kitchen right now! Copper River Salmon are in season!
Guy throws fish!
The market was cool – it reminded me of a cross between the San Francisco Ferry Building and an open market in Mexico – so much hustle and bustle and so much fish juice! I hope the bottoms of my jeans don’t smell..
For my snack, I followed recommendation and went to Beecher’s Cheese Shop where I found just what I was looking for…
Dungeness crab + Flagship Cheese grilled
On this blustery cold afternoon, it was just what I wanted! Crab is so good! [So is cheese!!]
After a short rest, I went to a speaker’s meeting and then to a party hosted by Ziplist, a cool tool that allows you to create shopping lists and recipe boxes for recipes that are easily consolidated across the web by shoppers.
There were lots of people to chat with and lots of delicious gourmet finger foods
The above veggie stacks topped with lemon zest were outstanding, as were the grape cracker bites and crab cakes.
The highlight of the evening was getting to spend time with EMILY whom I have not seen since she was about 20 weeks pregnant! I can’t believe I am beyond that in my own pregnancy already and her little guy is 7 months old!
I can’t decide what is more tired: me or my ab muscles from holding up the baby on my feet all night. King size bed, I am ready!
