Poor Customer Service …At Least the Food Was Good

I just got back from having brunch with a rather large group. I’ve been to a Hashcapade before, my friend Clark puts these on as a way to get together, eat good food and enjoy the company of friends.

Dressing. While I know there’s a technical difference between dressing and stuffing but I don’t think it’s safe to stuff anything edible in the bird, so I make dressing. Here’s the ingredients: Ingredients … Continue reading Bacon. Croissant. Dressing.

The Senses of Seattle

My friend Andy posted recently about a trip he took to visit Bend, it describes using all your senses to get the best out of your vacations. I recently made a day trip to Seattle for a Seahawks game and had the most amazing time. So in the spirit of the aformentioned post, here is how I experienced Seattle in all five of my senses. Sight: I went to dinner with a friend and on the way back to my hotel room, I spotted this cool park in Seattle. It was completely dark, except for these lights.
