“I’d like to think of this, your last semester @ CCSF, as
What I’d like much more is for [our group] to kick open the invisible
walls of your familiarity, let you finger the pieces of your own
Then you can leave.”—grph21 classmate, in a messageboard post to the instructor
My Wine Journal Entry No. 8, 9 and 10: Ercavio Tempranillo Roble, Pope Valley Haus Creek Sangiovese and some white wine I forgot and recycled
This review is coming several days after I polished these off, but I wanted to record them for your sake.
The white wine Jake and I consumed in the course of preparing and eating beef souvlaki with bodega rice pilaf and some mostly homemade baklava. I still don’t know how to pronounce baklava. This dinner was really, really good, and we almost didn’t make it because I made him go out with me to get some beers in dirty Soma with Pritt. I got a little drunk there and more drunk during dinner, and the dinner turned out really awesome (I made the marinade while Jake scooted to Whole Foods for future food prep) so I think I should always cook drunk. Earlier in the day Jake prepared the baklava which turned out really great also in my opinion. Cooking tipsy is the way to go.
The rest of the week since then is just a blur of Spanish classes, mild illness, bilingual and vegetarian houseguests, more wine, competitive word games and food. So much food. Slow-cooked orange cilantro garlic other stuff lamb shoulder, arepas, rice, spaghetti squash, corn on the cob and I forget what else because whatever else there was is no longer in my fridge. It was the closest thing to a true weekend at home I’ve since the consolidation.
As I write this I’m watching the Iron Chef America episode with pizza dough as the secret ingredient. I had ramen for dinner. And all the baklava is gone.
I give these a collective 4 tiny wine glasses out of 4
