I brought home a "cone of flowers" from the May Day Basket exchange. Dang it's cute. I didn't even think of trying to make a cone for flowers. But I will next year.
I have this one to use as a prototype. A prototype always helps.
We went to Renee Kelly's Harvest for dinner. Farm to table format housed in an old "castle" that was originally built in the late 1800's. The food was good. The spinach salad we started with was unbelievably delicious. Have you ever eaten a poached egg that has a crispy coat of panko bread crumbs (I think that's what it was) on it? The salad alone was worth the trip. Low light = less than great pictures - oh well, you get the idea. If anyone knows how to coat a poached egg in something crunchy (while keeping the yolk runny) do share your knowledge with us all in the comments.
Per the usual quail routine topics of conversation included, books, desserts, electronic things that monitor your activity and sleep, and how it took Joan 90 minutes to "de-bone" her crab at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant in Las Vegas in 2004.
We also decided none of us are ever having our lips done. Period. End of discussion.
