Weekend Consumption

Friday night beer was consumed in honor of D's birthday, and though my stay was short it was nice to be out and about. My first visit to Carson City Saloon and they had some good beer on tap, attentive waitstaff and thankfully, good music that wasn't so loud that I couldn't hear the conversation.

Saturday we had dinner with lilostitch and her fiance at The Library. The company was much better than the food in my opinion, but the space was neat, the beer selection was great, and the novelty children's book menus were really cool. I didn't recognize the place at first since they changed their sign, it used to look an awful lot like the Carnegie Library System's logo but the consensus at the table was that they probably had some sort of legal trouble with that. The menus still had the old logo though, which made me believe that I'm actually not crazy.

Sunday I made General Tso's Tofu. I use a bottled sauce so I can't take too much credit, but it's still a chore to make- I have to bread the tofu, fry it until it tastes enough like something other than tofu that the ladies in the house will eat it, then mix it together with some veggies in a wok to cook while I fret over timing the rice perfectly. Someday perhaps I'll try to make my own sauce, but I like the Iron Chef stuff and so do my "customers" so I'm in no hurry. For dessert sonbanon and T made some Banana Nut Muffin/Bread stuff which I enjoyed with some coffee as I settled in for a mindless night of video gaming.
