Two in a row

Sorry for the radio silence around here – things have been a bit busy for us, but we have still found time to eat and drink yummy things.

Dinner:  May 23, 2007

Wednesday night, Mike grilled a pork tenderloin, while I seared a couple of chunks of the smoked belly he recently made (still waiting for his write-up on that). I served our duo of pork with buttermilk-chive mashed potatoes and sugar snap peas. We drank Lieb’s Bridge Lane Merlot.

Dinner:  May 24, 2007

Last night we had an amazing (as always) meal at our favorite place, Marlow and Sons in Williamsburg. I always walk away from there inspired; they do such simple but beautiful things with perfectly fresh, seasonal ingredients, and I’m definitely going to try to recreate some of the dishes we were treated to last night in our kitchen at home.

As we walked back up Broadway to the bus plaza after our meal, one of our favorite bartenders at Dressler waved hello to us through the open window of the restaurant, so we decided to stop in for a nightcap. We wound down an already lovely evening with another good drink apiece and good conversation, and finally made our way home comfortably full, completely content and looking forward to the long weekend.

We’ve got more tasty things in store over the next few days; hope you do too!

  1. What a lovely impromptu end to your lovely evening. Some of my favorite moments have been spent in the company of bartenders–some of my favorite meals too. I plan to do a post one day about that.

    Your pork tenderloin meal looks fabulous too. Simple and delicious.

    Terry, we really had a lovely evening. It’s always a treat to chat with our favorite folks behind the bars we go to. My husband actually did a post about it here and went into a bit more depth about what we drank that night.
