Crispy Lemons?

Tonight Lisa and I went adventuring into the Seattle restaurant scene this evening to meet with a couple of friends we hadn't had the opportunity to talk to in a while. The place we went to was within throwing distance of "pill hill" where all the big hospitals are in down town Seattle. Some of the way we drove tonight brought back some memories of last year.

Anyway, aside from trips down C memory lane the place we had food tonight was called Quinns. Most of the food was really good and sometimes they took a fairly big risk and I think it paid off. Case in point, they sliced up some lemon like you would an onion, battered it (the lemon) and then fried it and added some salt. I can imagine that going wrong in SO many different ways. It was, however, excellent and surprising. Not something that I would eat a plateful of, but as a kind of garnish to the plate it worked very well. It was surprising in that when you looked at it it seemed to be a normal onion ring. Upon biting into it though your mouth is at first greeted with the familiar saltiness and grease an onion ring provides, and then this sweet, citrus blend creeps into your mouth. It's a surprise (even when you are expecting it) and when I thought about what I was eating I wondered why it worked, and doubted it would work, but then I would take another bite.

The food wasn't the only great thing about the evening though. The conversation we had with our friends over the course of the 3 hours we spent with them was a lot of fun and we covered all sorts of topics. Thank the Lord for good friends!

Health wise I am doing pretty well. I put in almost a full day at Taproot yesterday and more than a half day at NSB. I continue to pray for strength as I try to work more and more. Thank you all for your continued prayers for healing as Lisa and I continue with our lives and try to figure out what God has for us next!

  4. But if you want to know who killed Mr Boddy, I did. In the Hall. With the Revolver.

    Now, I'm going home to sleep with my wife.

  5. Movie reference: Clue. Man I think I've probably seen that movie 7 or 8 times now... for a while there we were watching it every year for Ryan's birthday.
