It's going to be a hectic, short week. It's a good thing the weekend was relaxing and slow. On Friday night we went to the Prado for a Chef's Kitchen dinner, meaning we sat in the kitchen as chef Jeff Thurston created culinary masterpieces that were paired perfectly with wine. I believe there were four courses and an amuse bouche. Yummy!
This picture is from my seat of the chef chopping fresh squash blossoms to top off our butternut squash soup:
Here is the chef's assistant prepping our beet salad:
I missed a few courses, but here is another of the chef, this time he's putting the finishing touches on a beautifully delicious dessert!
And finally, one of me and M.s. after the meal, stuffed, sated, maybe a little bit buzzed, but you can definitely see most of my lipstick was sacrificed to the rims of wine glasses:
We did some spring cleaning this weekend, and it feels nice to have space again -- meaning, no clothes on the floor! I plan on getting a lot done in the next three days (make that 2 1/2 now) so that I can relax in New York. Well, maybe "relax" isn't the proper word for what I'll be doing, but at least I won't be stressing. So, on to my To Do list!
