You thought I'd left you, huh? Nope. I haven't run away to start another blog, or cheated on you with another web-page. You're stuck with me as I struggle away from my anti-foodie life. Yet, the struggle has been rather pleasant lately; Felix and I had an awesome Memorial Day weekend with way too much food. He was pretty excited about it:
And if you want to find out about the food (I understand you may not be as entertained by cute, silly pictures of Felix as I am) click on...
I know. Kinda disarming. Shrimp. Big shrimp. Probably the biggest I've seen/eaten. That's Marc, one of the owners of the house in Montara- he's also a parent of one of my students. We were invited out for the day to drink beer on the deck and have Marc cook for us- so even though one of my students was involved, which might seem weird (though, btw- it wasn't), we couldn't refuse something as alluring as that. And we got to look at views like this all day:
I did my best to add to the noshing by providing some snacks, including:
If you are at all partial to foods that are sweet and salty, go get yourself a few tubs of this. There is definitely more fig than olive in this spread, so it errs a little on the sweet side (but I love that), and it pairs well with any soft cheese.
You would think that none of us had eaten for days (instead of stuffing ourselves for the last eight hours) with the spread Marc whipped up for dinner:
All of the little delights in those bowls created what had to be the best fish tacos I'd ever eaten. And I can say this pretty confidently because I was already full by the time we arrived at dinner. My favorite addition was a mango salsa that Marc created; once again it created that salty-yet-sweet quality to the tacos that I had been loving all day.
I can't think of a better way of being seduced back to blog writing. Thank you Marc and Mary!
