David, being the master chef that he is, made fresh Lobster Rolls for Valentine’s Day. We’ve talked about making them before, but it’s not exactly an easy Monday night, post-work sort of meal.
Imagine lobster seasoned with garlic and tossed in mayonnaise. Now picture that eaten between a buttery bun. Now it’s ten times better than what you just imagined, right? We love Hawaiian style Macaroni Salad and are well-acquainted with using mayonnaise in our cooking, so adding butter to the mix was the perfect indulgence for a sweet Valentine’s day together.
Dinner parties are much more delicious at 28 than they were at 25. Pizzas and cold cuts from the deli aisle have been replaced with home cooked dishes presented on beautiful porcelain ware; goodbye styrofoam and pint glasses from local breweries. Dinner at Gordon and Qiao’s always involves a bounty of delicious Chinese food, but never anything to help with. Qiao does it all on her own and is the most gracious host. After dinner, she prepares tea in an assortment of delicate cups that she’s picked up over many years and travels. After a night of food and laughs, we head home by nine just in time for a Netflix movie before bed. 28 is great.
I’m so lucky to work at a place that’s situated in the heart of Seattle, allowing me to enjoy a beautiful 360 degree view of the city. The early hours make way for some breathtaking sunrise shots as well. Below are my favorite views of the city taken recently at work and on various weekend trips.
Starbucks Reserve Roastery on a gloomy day.
Lunch at Harbour Public House on Bainbride Island
Coffee and brunch with Emily at Skiller Diner.
Fresh juice at Juice Box on Capitol Hill.
SNACKS for a Friday night in. Might have been healthier if we had gone out ;)
