Today was in a tower downtown. Except for the top-notch Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont, and RN74 for dinner.

Grillin at Gnomey’s
We journeyed to The Gastrognome’s to help her initiate the new Green Egg she’s babysitting. Her grilled flatbread was amazing, as were the porkchops, and kebobs.
Karen’s Birthday Sail
My food-centric book club discussed As Always, Julia tonight. It’s a compilation of letters between Julia Child and Avis DeVoto. Everyone brought food inspired by Julia Child.

Can It Forward
I approve of these kinds of reminders.
Today was Can-It-Forward Day at Pike Place Market, where a number of friends were involved with coordinating and teaching, along with the folks from Ball. I showed up mid-afternoon to check them out.
The shibaguyz taught the Pepper Jelly class. Remind me to take more classes with them; they’re hilarious.
This giant box of radicchio showed up on the porch today — a gift from an agency in California. I’d canceled my CSA for the week, so this sounded like an okay substitute when they contacted by email. I was envisioning enough endives for one meal, but instead, I got 10 lbs. of three different kinds.
Then out of curiosity, I found myself doing some Friday evening radicchio research. The best findings came from The Silver Spoon — I say yes to Parmesan and butter baked with most vegetables. In the end, tonight we went for roasting after tossing in olive oil. I’d like to try grilling next, but radicchio and walnut rolls (with more Parm + butter) look very promising.

LUPEC Seattle at Poppy
This month, the ladies of LUPEC Seattle met at Poppy on Capitol Hill. I’ve meant to go here for years; I was glad to have an excuse to go and catch up with good buddies.
I would also like to thank the LDS missionaries for helping me find the correct bus stop, so that I could make it on time. Such nice boys!
Preview: Prohibition by Ken Burns
Tonight at Intiman, Mr. T & I attended a KCTS preview screening of the upcoming Prohibition series by Ken Burns. It will be out on PBS in October.
Mr. Burns and his colleagues led a panel discussion after we viewed about an hour of clips. Fascinating exploration into the unintended consequences of single-issue politics and legislation. Bonus: lots of clips focused on the Seattle trade during this era. I didn’t realize Seattle was a such central character in the import/export business during that time, but it makes perfect sense now!
