Catching up on life…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything other than recipes here.

A couple of weeks ago Friday evening started with a takeout from our favorite gyros place, Adel’s

Adel is a sweet, friendly guy from Egypt who runs a little hole-in-the wall restaurant by himself, selling gyros, falafel, baklava – the usual Mediterranean fare. He always has a smile on his face and piles the meat high on your pita.

The main event of the evening was Ute Lempert’s concert at the Columbia Club downtown:

I saw her at a concert in Auckland on our New Zealand trip in 2010. The announcer emphasized that Ute does not want pictures or videos taken, so despite being heavily tempted by the close proximity of our table from the stage, I restrained myself and only took a photo of the settings.

Michael and Mary were our companions for the evening

 Next morning was the first day of the Carmel Farmer’s Market:

I got a couple of pepper plants:

and some petunias for a window box on the front porch:

It was a gorgeous Sunday morning, and we headed for Holliday Park for a short hike:
