I keep thinking of things I should write here and then don't. My stupid TiVo managed to fail to record the animated Star Wars short tonight so I'm going to just give up on the 5 minute bits and watch them on the 21st when they show all of them.
monstersocks and I went to Vincent for dinner on Saturday. It was a really great meal. I had the following:
- Duck Gizzards "Confit", Smoked Mashed Potatoes, Pomegranate Braised Endive
- Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Cipollini Onions, Chorizo Wrapped Enoki Mushrooms, Yellow Grits and Roasted Onion Jus
- Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate
monstersocks wanted me to post the definition of "Gizzard":
A modified muscular pouch behind the stomach in the alimentary canal of birds, having a thick lining and often containing ingested grit that aids in the breakdown of seeds before digestion.
The gizzards were actually pretty good. I was a bit surprised that they were shaped kind of like grapes. Meaty, meaty grapes.
We may go back next month for monstersocks' birthday and get a slightly vegetarian version of the tasting menu.
I haven't made it out to see the new Matrix movie yet. Reviews don't seem very positive but I still want to see it. Unfortunately the zoo isn't showing it yet.
