Life’s just too busy. Not that I’m complaining; just stating. But my life is just too busy nowadays.
ANYway, in between being busy with hordes and heaps work (gugh!) I did find time to make an oh-so-lovely sage-encrusted pork tenderloin with apple/onion mash on Thursday.
3) use as a bed for the pork and roast for 15 minutes at 350°
Friday night I hi-ho, hi-hoed with Blee down to Murphy’s Law for a Typhoons Dragon Boat team meeting. It was good fun and we’re already starting to plan our next season team and regattas. There’s a regatta in San Francisco that I’m pushing big time!
Sang’s Great Seafood Restaurant
On Saturday we bought a Cremant de Bordeaux Cuvee Royale sparkling wine from Vintages and headed to Blee’s for tasting! This was a superb find that I’d highly recommend you try to source and nab a half-a-dozen bottles of. Afterwards we headed to Chinatown for a seafood feast at Sang’s Great Seafood Restaurant. This was a great find and a great deal! For $39.26 the three of us chowed down on:
- mussels with black bean sauce;
- a green onion and ginger whole, steamed tilapia;
- an entire Vancouver crab;
- 3 spring rolls;
- a platter of garlicky baby bok choy; and,
- a platter of steamed shrimp with spicy soy.
What a deal!
4) Cremant de Bordeaux; 5) our seafood remnants; 6) Sangs!
In making the bed this morning I mulled whether or not having 9 pillows is 1) too many; and 2) too gay? … What do you think? … By the way, G and I made that headboard ourselves!
Hong Kong Bound
Oh, and G is going to Hong Kong and China for a few weeks at Christmas … Brent is sad because 1) we won’t xmas together this year, and, 2) I’ll miss him awful, and, 3) I’m jealous! Damn, don’t you just hate jealousy? I wanna go to Hong Kong and China. But, alas, when one starts a new position one cannot take a few weeks off. If any Xangans know of great places G must visit while in Hong Kong and China, give me an email please. And bon voyage G!
