The day started badly - we had overslept - it was almost 6:15AM when we actually got out of bed. Now for some this isn't oversleeping but for me (5AM is the norm anymore) this was very late. I came down the stairs to get coffee and get my little green buddy - at least some things are consistent. But when I looked out my kitchen door my little buddy wasn't there!
I guess he decided that since I'm not getting deliveries over the weekend that he would take an extra long weekend. But not to fear - he sent his little (ok big) blue cousin for a visit.
Dinner was so good, and I KNOW this picture does not do it justice. Beef Kebab with Peppercorn Brandy Sauce with Spinach Couscous and Roasted Artichoke Hearts. I need to do something about my color co-ordination of my sides though. The green of the couscous and the light yellow/green of the artichokes ... didn't picture well, but did a good job of filling my belly. The beef was so tender - even microwaving it to heat it did nothing to change the tender feel - I'm always afraid of making meat tough in the microwave - especially when I am warming something up. Chef Yos and his crew must have THE touch because not one of my meals have had a problem in that area.
Now dessert was .......... cheesecake - Coconut Cheese Cake to be specific. Seriously did you think it would be something else? It really looked fantastic and tasted amazing again, but I can't find the picture I took of it. Can you believe it ?? I have no idea what happened I'm sure I took one. But with everything else that was going on, I guess there had to be some "misses" here and there. If I figure out what happened to it - I will post it later.
