Yesterday we spent quality time at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, We went to check out the Emerald Cities: Art of Siam & Burma exhibit but we spent a few hours going through all of the regular galleries afterwards. I must admit that by the time we got to the China galleries I was feeling a little bit burnt around the edges. DelRaySteve scored us a choice Friday night reservation at Dosa so we ate loads of tasty South Indian food for dinner, accompanied by Peony cocktails that were probably my downfall. I was dead on my feet and headed to bed by midnight. You too can have a peony, Dosa provides a short video showing how to mix them:

This morning DelRaySteve, DelRayLaura and Husband went to Chinatown to shop for tonight’s dinner ingredients while I kept Dexter and Blue company. Aren’t Dexter and Blue adorable?


Then we went to the De Young Museum, which is conveniently in DelRaySteve and DelRayLaura’s neighborhood and checked out Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, which was very cool. Now I’m hanging out with Dexter, Blue and Pebbles the 3-legged cat while I wait for tasty Chinese food to appear before me.

I should probably be in the kitchen documenting the production of Strange Flavor Chicken from Fuchsia Dunlop’s Land of Plenty for the meatblog, but I’m tired, so I’m not. (Land of Plenty is Husband’s current favorite cookbook and I think this is his favorite recipe from his favorite cookbook).
