I think all I did last weekend was eat.
Friday - LDS workgroup lunch at In N Out
Friday night - America's Tacos and the Mountain of ice cream
Sunday night - dinner at Grandma's
Sunday night - dinner at Anne's with Alexis and family who were in town
And in the middle there on Saturday - Devoured.
The Phoenix Culinary Festival.
Only the best restaurants from the area. With food. Everywhere.
From The District:
Modern Steak had a Wagyu beef and lobster slider.
The Arrogant Butcher had an interesting sweet pea dumpling with bacon and peanut butter mousse (which was excellent, and I don't love peanut butter like many do).
I really want to go to pasta Tuesdays at Cibo, especially after trying this pasta with boar sausage! St Francis had the cauliflower soup with a raisin emulsion.
Bruschetta from all sorts of places with all sorts of stuff. I maintain that Postino is still the best, and I resisted even going to their table since I eat there so often.
Shannon enjoyed the cotton candy, maybe a little too much. I think we went back for 3 or 4 sticks of it, and tried to get some to go.
The famous chef from Barrio Cafe, Ms Silvana herself, did a demonstration and her personality was probably the favorite at the event. People packed in to see her. Then I had to go try her stuff - it was the most tender and delicious meat ever!
Shannon and I paced ourselves so our stomachs wouldn't die. We got there right as it started. Food, then art break. Food, then art break. We did pretty well - I think we got our money's worth.
Below - colored art, enormous, all paper. Like a bunch of sticky note pads turned sideway and smushed together.
The cool LED light pitch black room that you can get lost in. Might be a favorite.
July - Stuff I did. Puzzles. With cats. Beirut Cafe - I always order waaay too much food. Sour cream pancakes - once you make these, you...
