Returning, and Snapshots from Wine Country [Napa Valley]

Returning, and Snapshots from Wine Country [Napa Valley]

*taps mic, clears throat*

Ahem. Hello! Hello. I’m sorry I’ve been away.

So here’s the thing. I started a new job a couple of months ago at this huge, multi-national law firm. “It’s the logical next step,” I thought. “This is going to be great for my career. I will have this glowing name on my résumé and I’ll work my way up to Director in no time!”

In fact, no. It turns out that I am not cut out…

Brown Butter Molasses Pecan Scones

Guys, I’m on a scone jag.

Brown Butter Molasses Pecan Scones by Diane, A Broad (dianeabroad.com)

Apparently, I’m quite susceptible to jags. I get on kale jags during which I eat roasted kale with every meal for weeks. I’m in the middle of a lace jag in both knitting and crochet, producing dozens of doilies and filmy shawls like an old biddy.

The first day that I walked into Red Bread was the day that the LA Times ran a photo of the newly-opened brick-and-mortar Culver City store/restaurant on the front page of the Saturday Section, along with an article praising its rye.

Locanda [San Francisco]

Locanda is one of those restaurants I find it difficult to write about. Of course, it’s good. Honest food, some of it innovative, in an inviting space with an excellent bar. We even scored a table at the front windows facing out onto Valencia Street.

Everything was delicious and we left happy — but I guess what I’m trying to say is that it wasn’t exciting. Then again, is an Italian osteria…
