When I lived in the Bay Area, one of my favorite comfort food restaurants was MacArthur Park in Palo Alto. We met our friend, Roxanne, there Friday after a full day of shopping at Stanford Mall. We had been up since 4AM, so a couple glasses of wine and a hearty meal were just what we needed. I enjoyed some crisp Savignon Blanc from Cinnabar winery in Santa Cruz mountains. Brad drank bourbon, and Roxanne enjoyed the margarita special.
After a stack of the famous onion strings, we each had our favorite comfort plate. I had lost a crown on Thursday, and worried that my mouth full of dental wax would prevent me from enjoying good food this weekend. No problem! I managed almost all of my half rack of ribs.
Brad enjoyed his steak!
Roxanne loved her salmon with persimmon salsa. What a good idea!
Dessert? Of course! Brad devoured a slice of mud pie.
I managed half of a warm caramel sunday (my caramel sauce is better). Roxanne's turtle pie was gone before I could get my camera out!
