So I don't know if any of you Dreamwidth-ites are in Boston, but if you are, stop what you're doing right away. Pick up the phone. Call The Elephant Walk and make a reservation, preferably for this week because it's restaurant week. Do not skip a course on their prix-fixed restaurant week menu. Eat it all. Roll home. You will be in heaven. Seriously, I was still ridiculously full this morning.

J took me out last night for our anniversary (belated due to food poisoning, as previously mentioned). I started with a chilled avocado citrus soup (which had grapefruit juice, lime juice, avocado, tomato, sweet onion, mint, and button mushrooms) that made me gasp in surprise at how good it was. I'll probably be working on a recipe because oh my good I want it again, so if I work it out I'll post it here. Then I had a salad with red bell pepper, grilled pineapple, and a chili-vinaigrette, followed by a curry-satay dish with tofu, onions, mushrooms in a sauce with cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, and other spices (recipe also hopefully soon to follow). Oh, and chocolate truffle mousse cake. I'm really amazed I ate it all. J may actually have gotten more food than I (given that her main course was ribs). I think our waiter was impressed with us -- he kind of laughed when we ordered, breathlessly because we were both starving, the entire four courses. People don't expect two 5'3" skinny women to be able to put down that much food.

So really. Put down whatever you're doing now and go eat.
