Broiled Oysters with Sun Dried Tomato Tapenade

Friday, April 9th, 2010

These are inspired by an appetizer I had at Anthony's in Everett for our anniversary dinner back on March 25th. I got a raw oyster sampler and a pair of "barbecue oysters" that were both just wonderful. The oyster sampler was so much fun. I got to ...

Garlic Jim’s Pizza

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Tonight we tried Garlic Jim's Pizza in Mukilteo. We had a coupon for 30% off our first online order, so we got a Hercules, some garlic bread sticks, and some garlic wings. This was a definite win! A lot of the pizza places out here go way ...

Since my birthday falls on a Tuesday this year, and Shaun's second day of law school to boot, we just celebrated today. It started out with a nice relaxing morning at home, playing with Emma, and getting my wonderful present from Shaun, a little Toshiba netbook. This post ...

A Night on the Town

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Shaun and I rarely go out. We're homebodies and generally prefer the comfort of our own home, but last night we headed downtown for a night out. We got tickets to the Seattle Symphony, playing Distant Worlds - Music from Final Fantasy, and since the parking garage opened ...

Lanna Thai on Evergreen Way is one of the best Thai restaurants in the area. We'd been meaning to try this place for months and finally got around to it. We enjoyed jasmine green tea, wonderfully fresh and hot spring rolls, Pad See Ew with shrimp, and Pad ...

Despite having to go to work :-P I did have a very nice birthday yesterday. After work I got home and was enthusiastically greeted by Emma. I freshened up a bit, then Shaun and I headed out to Ivar's Mukilteo Landing for a nice dinner on the ...

Restaurant Review – ZAB Thai

Monday, September 1st, 2008

ZAB Thai is a great little Thai place just off Highway 99. It's located in a strip mall, and doesn't look like much from outside, but the moment you step inside you are greeted by a soothing water wall, authentic decor, and a friendly staff. The food is ...

Restaurant Review – Blazing Onion

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

Blazing Onion is a great local burger joint with lots of menu variety. The atmosphere is casual, but nice, and the food is high quality. I got the Log Cabin Steak Dip, which was an actual top sirloin steak, tender and cooked to order, on a light fluffy ...
