13 November 2011
Well the election was Tuesday, and I lost unfortunately. I did have a good showing and gained about 40% of the vote in a three man race. I am glad it is over, but it was a great experience – all in all. I had an amazing committee and some really enthusiastic supporters. I certainly learned who I could trust, and I met some amazing new people in the process. Now, back to doing the things I love: designing and cooking.
Jeff's birthday was the day after the election, so I took him to Atlanta for a birthday dinner at La Grotta. It was amazing, as usual, and we enjoyed chatting with the owner's son afterward at the bar. We stayed in the city overnight, and we had lunch at Mary Macs Tea Room on Thursday. Last night, we invited friends and family over to celebrate Jeff's birthday, and I prepared fajitas, refried beans from scratch and a Mexican chocolate cake for dessert. It turned out great, and everyone had a good time.
I worked today, and now I am preparing Sunday Supper. It feels good to be back on schedule! I saw a show on the Food Network this morning, and I wanted to make a dish from that episode. I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs with a Bacon Tomato Sauce. It hit the spot and provided just the right amount of comfort on a chilly Fall night!
