I just realized I should have taken a picture of at least part of the dinner I made last night. Our friends Jenn and Jason have an excellent band, Mutiny Mutiny, and they played in Everett last night. We had them over for dinner beforehand, and since they're vegetarians, I went ahead and made a vegan dinner since I've been making so many vegan meals. It was a Thai noodle dish and some zucchini lemongrass fritters, plus they brought spring rolls from Tamarind Tree, one of the best restaurants in Seattle. I wasn't going to have them bring anything at all, but when Jenn offered, I asked if she would mind stopping for those. Best spring rolls I've ever had and I didn't have to go anywhere to get them!
What I wish I took a photo of is the little station I made up for herbs and toppings. It was a nice triangle of bowls with cilantro, shiso, basil, cashews, green onions, and a big bowl of pickled cucumbers and onions. I had everyone bring their bowl over to the stove to grab noodles and top them with their choices from that station. It was a hit. I also made a watermelon basil ice dessert, which was tasty, but also weird because it looked like salsa.
Mutiny Mutiny was the third act on the bill at the show later on, and had a lot of sound issues, so I didn't end up asleep until midnight. Still love seeing them perform.
They're between drummers right now and were using a laptop as a drum machine. No big loss as far as I'm concerned, as their sound is very guitar-oriented.
You should all buy their music
! It's very good. A new EP is coming out in a few weeks.
I swear, staying up late is the worst in terms of how I feel. I didn't just feel gross when 5am rolled around and it was time to get up for my walk. I also felt very gross every time I woke up throughout the night. I'd rather have a hangover than be tired from staying up late, any day.( But the walk must go on...Collapse )
