Thanks for all the feedback on my last post! I hope you all know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. Without y’all, this blog definitely couldn’t be possible.
So, last night Almanzo and I dressed up and went out on the town. I wore these strappy little red sandals that I bought while studying in Paris three years and just found again yesterday (love it when that happens)
And Almanzo rocked the stripe on stripe look.
I love it when he does that.
Zazu has always been a favorite of ours. It’s our “go to” spot because when we are there, we are always guaranteed a great meal. Last time we went was for my birthday
Last night because super special though because we actually ran into three blog readers there! It was Rachel’s 27th birthday and her family drove up from Berkeley for dinner. Happy birthday, Rachel!!
Sorry if I started to sweat profusely and stutter; I become incredibly awkward in social situations apparently. I know you wouldn’t know just by reading this blog, but in “real life” I’m actually very shy. Being a writer has granted me my all time wish of making a living by hiding behind my books and a laptop. I need help. Really. Almanzo thinks it’s funny!
Anyways, we had a fabulous dinner. Per usual, we started with some smelly cheese and honey:
Drank some delicious vino:
And I inhaled the most wonderful mozzarella ravioli with fresh tomato sauce. The tomatoes were fresh from the Zazu garden and the mozzarella was made right around the corner, in Point Reyes!
The dish was topped with a simple green salad….it was fantastic!
Almanzo had a duck leg. Typical.
And we shared s’mores pie for dessert. This was unbelievable!!! Homemade marshmallow layers with thick dark chocolate and toasty graham cracker crumbs. Must re-create. Stat.
After that, I pretty much floated into my bed, visions of s’mores pie lingering in my head.
How many Austin readers would be interested in a meet-up? Email me if you’re interested…there might be something fun in the works!
