This Isn't the Half of It

It was an astonishing weekend, food-wise. We ate at this place Friday night, and there were so many courses that I literally can't remember them all. If the first course hadn't been the most amazing oysters I've ever had, then I would have left with the impression that each course was better than the last. There were so many of my favorite ingredients, lamb, duck, sorrel, pickled things, chocolate... it went on and on, and on, even after the end, when we wandered back to our friends' photo studio, since one of the owners came over after a while, with a couple bottles of rum for tasting. 
The rest of the weekend was pretty amazing too, Saturday morning, Lisa, Kathleen and I met up at Honore for macarons and cannele and cafe bom-bon. I could talk to those two ladies all day, but eventually we went our separate ways, me to the yarn store and then Susan's house where I actually COOKED something!! But more on that later. Maybe. 

Sunday was just as delicious, since Kate gathered up a few of us for Thanksgiving on the Ides of March, then served us the juiciest turkey ever, perfectly crisp skin, corn stuffing, and Lindsey made delicious greens. Afterwards I took us all out for ice cream at Molly Moon's. Highly recommended!

I'm drooling on my shoes. You write about and photograph the cuisine scene very well.
Then, I was thinking, "Where can I take Heather to eat before the dance concert in Bellingham?" I am intimidated. Big time.
