B-scene, Metaxa Happy Hour and Salmon grilled indoors
We also enjoyed the Salmon Tartare. Somebody just asked me "what's your favorite restaurant". I struggled to come up with an answer, and finally concluded that Tapasita's is the only place we seem to be going back to regularly. It has a good combination of comfort, value, quality and friendly faces. The location is also convenient for us.
Kat has been feeling under the weather. Her go-to self remedy is always a big bowl of soup. She applied the kimchi pork ramen from ESK at HIW ( East Side Kings @ Hole In the Wall).
We stopped by Blanton B scene, free entry for museum members with members only lounge. The members lounge didn't really amount to much and we quickly relocated downstairs to be close to the stage.
It may appear we are out partying late into the night, the truth is I hadKat home, and asleep in her own bed by 9 pm.
We did get to catch some of the Shivery Shakes.
is this the FOURTH ARCTIC BLAST? it was 84 degrees the other day, Sunday night had temps drop to the mid 20's! This is TOO MUCH!
It was too cold to grill outside. Kat cleaned out the fireplace, I loaded it up with hardwood charcoal and put the grill grate on the log holder. We enjoyed Sunday even family dinner around the charcoal fueled indoor grill (fireplace).
#1 son LOVES grilled mushrooms. I stuffed some with garlic, Vermont Smoked Pepperoni and parsley.
The salmon was marinaded in a mixture of OJ, Sriracha, soy sauce, brown sugar and kosher salt. (also some fresh ginger garlic and I sometimes add miso paste). I let it marinade for 30-45 minutes before skewering and grilling. Much longer in the marinade and the acid from the OJ starts to break down the Salmon.
If you have to endure another arctic blast, this is a good way to do it.
