{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.

{201} Trivia Night

Though Paul and I had plans to meet up and do some camping and Burning Man logistics work, lo and behold, we found ourselves playing trivia at Blur instead. It is what it is.

{200} Saffron from the Spice Market

Paul brought back this saffron from the Spice Market in Istanbul when he was there visiting in June. I used it tonight for the first time in a black bean and vegetable paella.

This picture, taken at Kristina’s farewell dinner at Anita & Cam’s, makes me ever-so-happy, for so many reasons.

{198} The moon, above the North Bay

I am not even going to begin to tell the story of what this shot entailed. But suffice it to say, it was the most memorable moment of the day.

We had dinner at San Tung tonight with Anita, Cam and Kristina. This was Paul’s fortune.
