    • The dinner wasn't terribly unpaleo after all! That being said I found it a bit of a letdown. Both dinner and dessert ended on a low note. The last entree for dinner was squab with a roasted carrot and a spicy dark chocolate mole- sounds good except for that the flavor profiles weren't there and the squab was over cooked- the first 4 entrees were much better.

      Dessert was much the same- the first dessert was absolutely delicious but the second dessert was aweful... and even worse is that the flavor of desert made my espresso taste gross (I was enjoying the espresso before dessert came and it definitely ruined it once I started eating the second dessert)

      High points of the meal- Ceviche; a raw shrimp in lemon; sous vide egg with dried oyster, seaweed and mustard

      Those were the best for me. All in all it was a good experience but not quite work the scratch they were pulling for it.

      • Your weekend sounds wonderful. Good for you, too, for taking a casual encounter to the next level. Human connections are what it is all about.

        • So I'm giving kefir a go. CS started drinking it about a week ago and has commented on how much better his stomach feels and how much more regular he is. I'm regular as it is but I figure that it's worth a go to see if I can see any differences.

          First time I tried the stuff was 3 years ago or so? And I thought it was nasty. But CS handed me a half glass on the weekend and I quite enjoyed it! Tastes like lebneh!

          • I consume kefir on a regular basis. I scored some made with raw goat milk a couple of days ago and have a bit every day. It is sweet for the bowels, even if you don't have any problems, there is always room for improvement.

            • If you like it, I'll expect your great lebneh recipes. It's easy to make and basically strained yogurt. Your mom and dad would get a kick out of it if you made it there, I bet

              • I swear by kefir. I made it for years - need to get some grains again to start that up again. I always have a bottle of it in the fridge and if you ever feel as though your stomach is upset or you have diarrhea coming on, plenty kefir will kick the bugs butt! My kids have never had a stomach bug and I am sure it is as a result of the kefir they have drunk since babyhood. Any time anyone has a tummy ache kefir is poured and all is well!

                • Kefir is the only thing in my parents fridge that I have right now. I'm actually ok with it! I had to explain to my parents that it may come in a milkish looking container but it's not milk and that if they go to try it and it pours thick it hasn't gone bad that's just the way it is. Because they've never heard of it they refused to try it.

                  • Yeah, I can relate - I can't even imagine getting my mom to try it! I love it. I am regularly around people who are suffering from stomach bugs bad even to be hospitalized, and virtually all of my co-workers get felled by it. I of course protect myself with proper hygiene and precautions, but I always down kefir and kombucha and I think that makes all the difference.

                    • Haven't your parents had lebneh? It's part of your culture Cultural deprivation, here! Meat as well, yes? Isn't your parents' background food just stuffed with primal goodies? Like larger servings of that stuff and less of the delicious breads, grains, and lentils? They might not notice. Yes, I know. I'm talking of a perfect world where you are in charge of the shopping and cooking as your contribution to the group. If you could be in charge of people's eating, the world would be a better place -- and G-d knows, this world needs a lot of work. OK. I'm starving just thinking about your food, and noon is a looooong way away!

                      • Of course my parents have had lebneh, but when I tell them that the milk I just bought hasn't gone sour and isn't actually milk it scares them... they don't do new things. And as far as primal food culture I think you've got it all wrong- they were fed mounds of pita, tameah (felafel), foul (mashed up beans with spices), lentils... etc.

                        • Okay, I'm going to lay out one of my fantasies right here in YOUR journal - I often daydream about having a job as a chef in a restaurant that serves all whole food, everything fresh and local, very trendy, uber-cool, and all the people who work there are my friends, so work and real life are blended together and it's all a lot of hard work and great fun and fellowship. And sometimes I think you just might achieve this fantasy of mine!

                          • Mmm... it's not every day that a gal such as yourself lays out her fantasies on me!

                            That's the plan in the coming years. Still not quite sure how everything will go down in the next few months but we'll see.

                            • Ah, I was thinking kebabs and that ground meat with all the spices. Well, they are missing out on not trying your food. Maybe they'll have to ??? when you open your own restaurant
