A Couple more celebrations this week...

Well, time surely does fly when you're having fun!!!  Our 47th wedding anniversary just sort of snuck up on us this week...  As we've done in other years, we chose to stay home, cook our favorite meal, and reminisce about all the adventures we've shared.

We have a long history of loving the center cut of the Filet Mignon loin.  We also love Rox's stuffed baked potatoes.  We have discovered this combination in the Sixties before we even got married, and have shared this meal from Berkeley, San Francisco, Grants Pass, London, Berlin, Garmisch, the Canary Islands, Quito, Montanita, and of course, our own kitchen.

We also served hundreds of filets in our Steak House restaurant in Mendocino County.

So...here we are posing by the fireplace before our anniversary dinner...

Rox sent me to the store for baking potatoes, and of course, you can't just buy two, so here she shows off five large bakers already "once baked" and ready for the "twice baked' part of the recipe.  We don't eat them all at one seating--the others are "money in the bank"!

These two Filets come from a little less than have the loin roll. 

The food and conversation for this evening was perfect!  We even surprise ourselves recounting our adventures...

And...earlier in the week, Isidro, had his birthday, so we invited him and Agripina over for presents, nibblies, and Cuba Libres...

In addition, to ice cream and a huge cake for later with his whole family, Isidro received a really neat shirt, 8 cell flashlight, some beers to go, and a motorized TV antenna, all the better to reel in those variable TV transmitters.

We also printed him a bunch of business cards.  In addition to being invaluable to us, Isidro also has a fish route where, 6 days a week, he travels by bus to Palmar 18 km away, buys fish from the main market, and travels back by bus with his large crate full.  He then puts the crate on his bike and peddles it all over Manglaralto and Montanita, selling to his restaurant customers, and special families.  "Pescado Fresco" means fresh fish.

So...all in all, a very nice week!
