I’ve been a bad, bad blogger! How is my last update from January? But I figured with time springing forward today and the weather warming up at last, I ought to push off the winter slump and get back into the swing of things. The problem with taking a hiatus from blogging is that you get stuck with all this backlog that you’re not sure what to do with, weeks (or months) later. However! I am determined to make my way through them. My Hawaii posts are still plenty acomin’, and there’s much more from before my trip that I still have to do. You’ll have to forgive me for my lack of memory for some of these posts, but at least I have pictures…!

Today I begin with dinner, still from Day 1 of my trip. For dinner, we headed to Paesano, a local Italian place that’s quite the favorite with my friend’s parents. (We actually took quite a bit of food to go for them). The maitre’d was a bit snobby, but the wait staff was decent, if a little slow. No one seemed to mind that too much anyway, as the place was hopping with business that night.

Pictured above is my entree – the veal marsala. The veal was cooked nicely with a great crust, and the sauce was good, though nothing particularly memorable. I like my marsala sauce to have that strong wine flavor to it, which this one didn’t seem to have so much.

The rest:

Chicken putanesca, which I did not taste. But it looked pretty tasty!

Veal francese, of which I had a bite (and I don’t remember much of it, but it was quite good).

Spaghetti carbonara, also did not taste. There was none of it left by the end though, so it must’ve been good!
