We went to Ziki's for dinner - tried sake (didn't like it, but Matt did), got smoked salmon nigiri for an appetizer and then hibachi steak and shrimp all around - served with vegetables, yakisoba, and fried rice, yum. We came back and watched MST3K: Soulstealer, which was predictably horrible and fantastic.
Next weekend is the chili party! We are having the last of the groceries for that delivered today (including 6 pounds of beef). I will be dicing and chopping and sauteing on Thursday or Friday (a dozen jalapenos, half a dozen onions, a head of garlic, beef and bacon) and then throwing it all in my biggest pot Saturday morning for a good 5-6 hour simmer. We may have up to 18 people at our place - should be interesting, but I know as always it'll be a blast. It'll be our last chili party in this place!
