What we’ve been up to

It’s beautiful out today, but the last couple weeks have been very rainy. It’s like our winter waited until Spring to arrive.

I just finished reading the Hunger Games. I thought it was a little kooky, but good in terms of suspense. I think we’ll probably go see the movie — I love Jennifer Lawrence.

Is anyone reading the 50 Shades trilogy? Why is everything a trilogy?

The dogs used the crappy weather as an excuse to cuddle. This lasted about 5 minutes.

I used some downtime to makes lots of little crocheted bowls. I just think they’re so cute!

We tried a couple of new restaurants. After our discovery that currywurst is becoming a thing, we went to the Rosamunde Sausage Grill in San Francisco. It’s not currywurst, but it does have a really nice selection of sausages and toppings.

The Haight St. location is absolutely tiny and people were crammed into every available inch of space. But the woman manning the grill managed every order without getting overwhelmed.

We tried the beer sausage, the merguez (spicy lamb and beef), and the wild boar. If I’m remembering correctly, the wild boar was actually my favorite. Who knew?

Then another night we had a groupon for Home of Chicken and Waffles in Oakland. The place is a little shabby inside, but the food was a-maze-ing.

It really felt like a grandmother’s recipe for classic soul food. We tried the mac ‘n cheese and some greens, too. Everything was delish. Then afterward we walked around Jack London Square a little bit, which we really haven’t done before. I’d like to check out their farmers market some weekend.

This weekend we heard there was going to be a Goat Fest at the Ferry Building. Goat cheese samples and tiny goats to pet? Yes, please!
