Cookin’ In The New Cave

The Egg Thingy

The Egg Thingy

Well, we are a week into setting up the new cave. We still have painters. We still have boxes. And, I still can’t find my camera cord so I can post up some before and after photos of the new digs. BUT … I finally actually made something, other than a sandwich or bowl of cereal, in the new cave-kitchen!:)
Now, don’t get too excited. It wasn’t anything new, nor is there a new recipe to gawk at. However, it is a family favorite and was the overwhelming dish of choice for the cave clan this morning. I speak, of course, of The Egg Thingy, pictured here on some of Western Bagel’s best.
It really got my jets going, too, as I finished up the delicious day starter and ended up going through about 2/3 of the boxes that filled the garage. You can actually see out to the street from the back end, now! 😉 I’m quite amazed at how far along we are in the short time we have had to unpack, especially considering some of the “pot-holes” we’ve encountered.
In fact, the Cavewoman and I felt comfortable enough from our efforts to take last night off, employ the now geographically nigh Cave-in-laws’ babysitting services, and head out for a real late-date-night … our first in nearly a year. Our first stop was at a very highly recommended local (actually walking distance) Japanese restaurant called Sushi Yusho. Happily, it lived up to the hype and was very delicious. The service was great, sushi chefs friendly, and the clientele seemed to be mostly very satisfied regulars. We will definitely be returning soon, and I plan on doing a full write up of this fishy-find.
Next, we stopped at Claim Jumper for a very sinful dessert they call a Chocolate Chip Calzone. A traditional Italian pizza dough turnover filled with very untraditional ingredients: butter, and semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. When it comes out of the oven, they top it with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and drizzled fudge sauce. Ohhhhhhhh, Man! Is it gooooood!!
Toad The Wet Sprocket

The final stop of the evening was a local live music venue called The Canyon Club. A place that attracts a wide array of name acts in a smaller, comfortable setting. The headliner were some old friends from Santa Barbara collectively called Toad The Wet Sprocket, a band that has had several top hits and really play a very unique, melodic brand of rock. It was so good to see the boys together again, enjoying what they do best. The packed house enjoyed it, too! Sorry for the lousy pic, but it’s not bad for a Palm Centro, eh?!?
After the 2.5 hour set and some long overdue reunions with the SB faithful, we had to head home and relieve the over-generous grandparents who reveled in the fact they only had a 15 minute drive home (it used to be an hour-fifteen!). It was a great night, and one that we really needed after a crazy year of house selling and buying, packing, and moving. Obviously, we are far from settled-in, and I can’t do the planned post about our actual move until I find that darn cord. But, I now feel like we are indeed here: I’ve cooked, found a great sushi spot, seen some live music in the hood, and have finally posted something longer than a haiku here! 😉

  1. Life is good. Broke in the new kitchen, found the best local sushi spot and live entertainment all close to home. Ain’t LA great?

    • Thanks!, Actually, Pamie, this is all happening in Ventura County! We 86ed LA for a slower, more family-friendly environment. Who knew we’d be getting all the comforts of the big city coming with us! 😉

  2. I like Haiku

    And very exciting to have the new cave!

    Sounds like you had a great, and well deserved, night out on the town! And even better you got a chance to cook in your new kitchen. I haven’t cooked in my kitchen for well over a week. Hubby has been handling that because of my crazy work schedule, so I’m looking forward to getting back to it.

    The recipe looks like something my 15 year old would love! I may have to try it for him…cause you know there is no way I will be eating it. It’s that egg thing with me…no pun intended. LOL

    Glad to see you back at the cave-stove and that you both had a nice relaxing evening off from the nightmare that unpacking is.

    So cool that you got to see Toad The Wet Sprocket. I still remember the first time I heard Way Away. Glad you found your way back into the kitchen. Keep plugging along, it’ll be home in no time.

    OMG, that egg thingy looks so good, I am so making it really soon. Would have made it for dinner except I was already cooking corned beef and cabbage. Although at some point, we are going to have to share cholesterol numbers, you know! 🙂
