This weekend was a lot about food. It started early Saturday morning at Pam’s Farm House Restaurant. Pam’s is a cash-only establishment with an attached bar (The Goat) that is not open at any time we would ever think about going there. It reminds me of Lucy’s (with the King’s X attached bar) in El Paso, probably my all-time favorite breakfast joint. It is right around the corner from the Sun Bowl so I sent my buddy Warren there when Oregon State played there last year and he agreed with my assessment, but that is another story. Pam’s is high on the list, if not number two. They serve biscuits and gravy that are out of this world. One plate is enough for two people. Andrew, Troy, Christian, and I all met there at Troy’s invite. We owe Troy big time.
On Sunday, Lester and Esther invited us to Jasmine after meeting. Jasmine is a Middle Eastern food restaurant we like a lot, but it did not open until noon, so we ran down to Moe’s Mexican food. That was good, but then it was Mexican food and I never complain about Mexican food. We went to Barnes and Noble after lunch to see Giada De Laurentiis. You can read about that below. Lorena and Kelly watch her in the gym while they are on the elliptical machine. She was impressive. Not only is she very cute, but she was kind, upbeat, and very engaged with each and every customer during the many hours of signing books. Lorena and Kelly loved it. Lorena said something in Italian to her and even pronounced the names correctly. They are dying to try the recipes in their new book.
