Last week of the year was busy but so much fun. Jon and I had friends come stay with us over the New Years and this meant a lot of eating out and great food.
Being at the cabin though has given me the beginnings of restoration. I’ve been tired and sick for at least 3 weeks now, but cooking in that kitchen has been so lovely. Despite the fact that we ate out for dinner a few times for the holiday, just having a familiar kitchen with all of our tools, making breakfast, lunch, snacks and sometimes dinner has soothed my body and soul.
I need to say a small bit about a restaurant in Palm Springs that we went to with friends. This place is a must. Everything we had was fantastic, but the one thing that just sent me over the moon was their Meatloaf with Sriracha sauce. Yes, you read that right. Jake’s makes gourmet comfort food and it’s all fantastic, high quality, pleasure filled amazing.
Check it out the next time you are in Palm Springs, California.
I also want to say that ending and opening the new year with friends around dinner tables felt very telling of the very thing I want so spend more time doing this new year.
Enter as you mean to go.
Happy new year everyone.
December 28, 2015 – In transit – Jon and I had french fries and coke! We spent the day driving down from Santa Cruz and all over the Valley, Marina Del Rey and finally San Bernadino County in order to find a car to buy. Before getting home we made an extra stop in Palms Springs because we’re crazy like that. No food. McD’s for the win.
