Gotta Get Away...Glad I Did!

Spent 3 lovely days in DC...

Met some of Dan's friends (he lived there at one point)... they are wonderful. I can see why he holds them in such high regard. They had us over for a delicious and lingering dinner. All was tasty from the roasted chicken (loaded with garlic, shallots and spices under the skin), to the sauted veggies. The salad with the fresh herbs, crostini, cheese plate and dessrt - YUM! Pair that all with some fantastic wines and a a bottle of port and you get the idea! YUM!!
The gents...thanks for your wonderful hospitality!!
When are you coming to NYC?

A few of the wines we tried over the two nights that I have to pick up so I can try them again... some of them I didn't have paired with food! (A good excuse!)
2003 Chateauneuf du pape - Domaine du Pegau
2004 Rosenblum - Petite Sirah
Cabernet - Dunn - Howell mountain
2003 Pierre Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape
2003 Kilikanoon Wines Medley Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre

We visited The Phillips Collection...The now have teh return of their Masterworks, The Freer...the Peacock Room and the ceramics were wonderful. They also were showing Small Masterworks by Whistler. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden where I saw some fun pieces by Alberto Giacometti. Finally we had time for only one wing of the American Museum of Art. Wandered through a lovely garden and stopped by Stitch DC in Capitol Hill where I picked up some lovely sock yarn.

I've posted some favorite paintings & scuptures that we saw.

Sunday Morning we met Brian at the Green Market. We had come to hear Michael Pollan speak again, and to get a few more books signed. He gave us an odd look when we got up to him. I had told Dan he would surely think we were stalking him since we'd just seen him on Tuesday! When we told him that we had just seen him in NYC he laughed and said "I thought you looked familiar!"

And...last but NOT LEAST!
Sock #1-- DONE DONE DONE on the return train!
