For Saint Patrick's day, and to celebrate the book deal becoming official:

Went down Route 9 and found a parking space just off Stuart? street (or the one after it) in the theater district.

A beer at Jacob and something's and then i remembered i had to get my developer talk in for DrupalCon San Francisco and i went back to the car to do that.

Andrew hit some other places, found me back at the car (cell phone had gone silent mode somehow) and after i finally posted, we went off again, to find every place shutting down at half past 11!

A decent meal at the earth or something café a block from the common (Andrew had the mac and cheese, i had the hummos platter for which they swapped out the cheese for avocado!). However they wouldn't let Andrew order alcohol because he had no ID. He found the failure to give any perks for being old quite disrespectful.

Last night i put some lentils in the rice cooker with no plan on how to use them. Andrew took over and put in brown sugar, garam masala, vegetable stock, capers, a couple hot jalapeños i sliced up, the bok choy i forced on him, and a ton of dried crushed red pepper and some cayenne pepper.

I put on rice for safety but the heat in there "from three directions" cooked down a bit -- still very good mixed with rice.

Meanwhile we did a salad with rescued-from-rotting organic lettuces, romaine and maybe also romaine, cilantro, beets (from a can, Andrew's addition, very good), dried cranberries (not many left), sunflower seeds, thinly sliced baby carrots.

Very good.

I flavored both things with amino acids.
