We don’t go out to eat very often but every now and then we do. Tonight we went out with some dear friends, so I was not in the kitchen today. I used to run kitchens like this all the time, but not any more. I would love to do it again; someday. But for now, I am usually quite happy in my own kitchen, although, every now and then it is fun to go and and try something new and different. We went to the Thirsty Lion in Downtown Denver after the Avalanche Hockey Game (Av’s won by the way, which made the meal even better). We had a delicious meal of tapas, which included a ceasar salad, fried calimari, sliders, and bacon wrapped shrimp. When we do go out, I use it as a learning experience – new ideas, new flavor combinations, new ways of presenting things. So, in a way, it is like a field trip and I use the information as a learning opportunity to create something new on my own.
