Gents Lunchin in Habitat
Geoff H. and Mike V. joined Clever Bacon and I for lunch.
Get this: twas fun for both of us.
Charlie had been ‘softened’ by a hard ride , so this work-mad scientist gave himself permission to do ‘nothing’ .
Me because I was serving a full house (well, habitat). On offer: the almost-finest, above average food.
“Goop Soup”, Savory bread pudding, arugula and green grape salad (the little brown belly buttons trimmed off for aesthetic’s sake) with an orange juice/mirin/tamari dressing and Penultimate quality butter cookies shaped like bats and cats. Oh, and some peach hooch that Matt McPherson (North Carolina)’s grand uncle fabricated in 2005 or earlier. It was sublime.
Geoff blew my mind with his knowlege about both motor sports (charlie’s dark secret addiction) and fine cheese (my more well-known addiction).
(Commercial aside: if you want my two volume “Ten Iconic California Cheeses” chapbook, enclose two paper dollars–not doll-hairs— in an embolism, and send to Boit 757 Fairfax CA 94978. You will get a numbered copy of a limited run of this charming mini-book set. The seventy dollar “Ottographed” by CC and JP Competition Bike Book remains on offer)
Mike Varley brought Stone Ale, a brewery from S. Condido (So cal) MMMMMMN will send pic shortly or longly.
For dessert, I marched everyone into the man-cave to see the 4 minute docu-drama about fabulous me…..
