  1. Our cherry and grape tomatoes are coming in, so we had mini-sandwiches with tomato slices on pain epi "leaves" with unsalted cultured butter.
  2. --Grilled lamb shoulder chops --Frisee and grilled peach salad --Leftover curried green beans --Half-size G&T to drink (only 1/2 oz. gin per cocktail)
  3. Hell, even in the early 1980s Mad Magazine was doing Gilbert & Sullivan parodies.
  4. I went to my first beer release party yesterday, given by 21st Amendment Brewing for the release of their new DIPA, Close Encounters of the Hops Kind. It was alien-themed: spaceship balloons, people encouraged to come in costume, cheezy sci-fi on the TVs, etc. The beer itself was very well-balanced for a DIPA, and not overly piney or astringent. They had the hops supplier there displaying all of the hops used, including an experimental one with no name, just a number. Apparently, experimental hops are grown if a brewer will commit to using them for at least one beer; if they're successful,
  5. It does, and it won't cost me much besides hotel parking fees and anything we choose to do not covered in the package. We also get a Red & White cruise, which is to SF what the Circle Line is to NYC. They've been running Bay excursions ever since the Golden Gate Bridge opened.

  8. Folks at the dinner party we went to liked it a lot, so it was a success in my book.
  9. Someone else asked her that, and yes she does. She also gets a mild euphoric feeling after the wavy lines go away.
  10. Mango pie from the NYT recipe, though I made it in a 9 x 13 pan since I don't have two pie tins. And even though I'd read the user notes, followed the recipe exactly, and made sure to soften the cream cheese and blend thoroughly, I still ended up with small lumps of cream cheese in the final mixture.
  11. --Boneless chicken thighs marinated in chutney, then skewered along with red pepper and apricots and grilled --Curried pickled green beans --Pickled mustard greens left over from our Laotian dinner
  12. Before I saw the Carlin documentary, I'd assumed that his Hippy Dippy Weatherman character (which my dad used to imitate) dated from his longhair days, not his earlier clean-cut period. (Though apparently he'd been smoking pot since he was a teenager.)
