{205} Pa amb tomaquet, two ways

One thing I wanted to do over the weekend was get to Contigo, since I hadn’t been there in months and pa amb tomaquet was back on the menu. We had it in its unadulterated version, as well as topped with La Quercia prosciutto. Heaven on a plate.

While Paul was at a show at the Warfield, I took myself out to dinner and then met friends at Kozy Kar for a drink, where we waited for him to join us. I had been planning to spend the evening working, but felt pretty lucky that things worked out totally differently.
