Yes, thank you so much, Kerry!

 

You've got to be exhausted from all of this travel and I know you are very happy to sleep in your own bed.

Well - here we are again in Seattle - a quick turn around from the Paris trip.

Looks like I'm praying for a smooth ride. Instead got a little lecture at customs.

I wouldn't recommend the pasta

I'm not sure how the butter chicken was.

Nice looking bread.  I've not seen bread like that in a restaurant.

LOL - doesn't look like they've cut it in half yet. Must be a fairly new instant pot - the box was still around.

 Don’t notice flags on chicken but you can count on me to spot an EZtemper.

There were a crapload of different brands - they have a custom woodburning/gas pizza oven - then a variety of other ovens to test baking in. That's a Miwe on the left and a Rational on the right.

This afternoon we headed off to the venue to get ourselves set up for tomorrow.

 

IMG_3424.thumb.JPG.02282fd72eda87a7c2b624a28d3b5f39.JPG

 

Saw this adorable fellow upstairs when I went for a reccie looking for @pastrygirl.

 

IMG_3425.thumb.jpg.7f2958bfd9042c17861ac8c3ef6e4c46.jpg

 

While poor Bhavhani went off in search of his missing equipment - @Alleguede, Bhavhani's staff member Bianca and I went off to Pikes Place market - headed in to Sur la Table. Found this all clad thermomix imitator.

IMG_3426.thumb.jpg.b5e50828bc5376c5072ad16d731db55f.jpg

 

IMG_3427.thumb.jpg.f4c1a9dbf15591bc69c9a8ad35db9cc1.jpg

 

Then off to Beecher's Cheese for some fresh curd and a grilled cheese with extra stuff (tomatoes, basil and 'special sauce' which appears to contain grainy mustard).

 

We wandered a little further afield while waiting for Bhavhani to return from his fruitless quest - and wandered upon a cartography store. 

 

IMG_3440.thumb.jpg.d7e1b6162345d6585b8bf58e2a8ee77b.jpg

 

This was just whimsical enough to appeal.

 

And now I have a Paul Simon ear worm.

Bhavhani returned - his cousin the foodie found us a place for dinner. @YetiChocolates was ready for dinner at the same time we were and she joined us at 'The Girl from Ipanema' (now I have another ear worm).

 OK so I have been complaining to you personally for a very long time that my eye sight is failing. 

 

6F4E67D0-B6BB-413E-92AE-9B4FFA7CAC2F.thumb.jpeg.893400b077ed54bb3f366b98231aea8e.jpeg

 

So I don’t know what you see here but what I saw for the longest time was a  Labrador.  His nose is pointed to the left and I can clearly see his collar.   When I moved to the next picture I thought, “OMG they are eating him”.

 

 I will see about an eye appointment on Monday.

Got ourselves all set up for the show.

This little cutie watched with rapt attention while the 8 year old piped the chocolate that we had him temper. After he was finished we had her temper some chocolate and mold an Eiffel Tower. 

 

IMG_3448.thumb.jpg.de57c3c3eeddae113084e4426ad293a1.jpg

 

Here's the pieces that he piped - we put in a little of the raspberry chocolate @Alleguede had made earlier before having him back with the Cacao Barry dark.
