What an exciting day!

We have a new President.

I was lucky enough to take a break from working and watch the Inauguration ceremony with my co-workers in a conference room.

And for those of you curious as to what everyone ate at the Inaugural Lunch, both the NYT and Epicurious were kind enough to post details on the menu (which included mac and cheese for the kids! That’s what I had!!)

The Menu

Seafood stew in puff pastry including scallops, shrimp and lobster
(Abe loved seafood)

Main course
“Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck)” served with sour-cherry chutney and molasses sweet potatoes
(Abe ate root vegetables and wild game as a child in Indiana)

Apple cinnamon sponge cake and sweet cream glacé
(Abe liked apples)

Recipes are available.

Cheese and Cheesier

Last night, Rox, Jake, and I went to Bryant Lake Bowl for late night drinks and snacks. I was craving a cheese plate, and since Barbette was so packed, BLB was the next best thing. They are both owned by Kim Bartmann, who also owns the Red Stag. All three restaurants serve delicious food with local, organic, and sustainable integrity.
