dinner on the beach

Another stellar meal at Dago's tonight; camerones al mojo de ajo for me, fish tacos for the Patient. We joined other folks who were also enjoying being out of their respective kitchens and onto the beach.

Tomorrow being Saturday brings a massage at 11 AM and the opera, (Eugene Onegin with Thomas Hapson, among others) at noon. Then an afternoon of shopping, baking, chopping, steaming, and preparing for the evening's Valentine's Day bash starring a standing rib roast to be cooked in the outdoor oven on Marie's terrazzo. I am whipping up foccacia plus veggies for grilling (onions, carrots, beets and red peppers) and maybe even some lemon bars (made with limes instead) for postre.

But before all of that Jaime, he of the wonderful tile work last year, will be over to give me a presupuesto on some work we want to have done: pave the pathways on both sides of the house, pave the front small patio, turn the second floor balcony into an indoor dining room, and, most importantly, install an altar to the Virgin of Guadalupe using a beautiful large tile daughter Alex gave to us as a house gift some years ago. Actually, that's the first thing I want done, so there will undoubtedly be pictures of it before too long.
