Ladies Who Lunch
Well, well, well, looky here! Guess who has the entire fucking summer off? Me! Hooray and Yee Haw and Whatnot! The fact that I'm posting two days in a row is probably a good indicator of my newfound free time.
Technically, the last day of school was last Tuesday, but as I had a conference Wed-Fri, and TWO school related events on Saturday, I just didn't feel like I was off until today (Sunday felt just like a regular Sunday filled with gluttony and naps).
And what did I do? Well I spent myself a bit of time at the Ferry Building. I went to Far West Funghi to buy some mushrooms for tomorrow night's dinner (yes, we cook sometimes) and ended up with a $24 jar of truffle salt. I got three of the miraculous fleur de sel caramels from Recchiuti and shared with no one. I bought myself a new Scharffen Berger t-shirt. I moseyed over to Acme and got some bread and some more bread. I can get used to this.
The highlight of my Ferry Building foray, however, was my delightful lunch with the equally delightful Jennifer of the Hungry Hedonist. I originally found Jennifer when doing a search for myself ("restaurant whore" -- yes, I am an egomaniac) and discovered we had quite a bit in common. Top three reasons why Jennifer is the raddest?
1. She eats like a pro (peep her blog if you don't believe me).
2. She goes to my alma mater, which made me feel all proud and maternal and shit.
3. She is super adorable.
Check her out. I bet you'll love her as much as I do.
