#362 Bridget cooks!

Only a really good friend flies 1000 miles for a visit then cooks dinner.

On Friday night, our weekend started in Richmond where Bridget's 1000-mile flight from Omaha ended.
Culinary event #1: Our culinary weekend immediately kicked into high gear at Richmond's Comfort Restaurant - recommended by our friend Chris. The chef’s motto: “I don’t want to scare anyone.” We weren't scared. We loved it and we were off to a good start.
Culinary event #2: Bridget's special-recipe ratatouille. You'll all be surprised to learn that we don't keep fresh eggplant in the house. So when it came time to make ratatouille on Saturday night, we made a run to the grocery store and broke the eggplant drought that's gone on way too long. Bridget made magic.
Culinary event #3: And just to keep near the culinary edge, we chose The Shebeen on Sunday night for South African fare - game hen and chicken skewered on sugar cane rods with cardamom, coriander, cumin, and mealie pap. Yum!
Yours in wondering if I can sneak down and finish off that leftover ratatouille before Mary knows what I'm up to,

  1. I was wondering if you'd be brave enough to eat the leftovers without supervision. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!...Bridget
