Kyle & Alani Obon 2005

More Christmas Day and catch up of earlier in the week

Thursday night, herefox, Ferral and I went to dinner at Amarin's - tom kha gai, pad thai, basil chicken, hoa moke -pork, the dish Ferral picked out (ack! memory bad!), and rice. With tummys full, Foxy & I went to Cost Plus for much stocking stuffer shopping. I think he picked up all of one thing, while my basket was semi full. =)

Friday night, trektone and I went to Cesar's for dinner. Cesar's is a latin-american tapas restaurant. Lots of great company and lots of lovely nibbley bits: cabbage rolls with morcilla, rice & tomato sauce (a bit weird for me because the only rolls I've had have had chinese flavorings, so my tongue was not expecting the almost Italian style flavorings), canape de boquerones (pickled anchovies) with black olive relish (yum!), estofado de gambas con azafrán (Joey liked this one!), smoked fish plate with horseradish & steelhead caviar, and of course, papas fritas with cumin, garlic & allioli. We shared the bread pudding with orange-caramel sauce and the mel i mato with pomegranate & almonds. Enjoyed the two red wines with dinner (can't remember their names *sigh*). Shared a wine flight of dessert sauternes.
