Family Visit and A Nice Restaurant

Ruth came up to visit for a few days this past week. Always nice to see her and Timothy loves spending time with his auntie.

Since her visit was during the week I didn't get to see her too much apart from the evenings. But we did get a chance to have a nice dinner out in Seattle before she went back down.

I also checked something off my Seattle goals list in that I ate at a restaurant by Tom Douglas, one of the city's big chefs. This was the Palace Kitchen and they were surprisingly accommodating about having a group with a toddler show up without warning. Top-notch staff. And, to his credit, Timothy behaved very well indeed.

Ruth had the cheese sampler (and shared a few nibbles), Kit had the burger, and I went for the fresh pasta with bacon and cauliflower. I'm not normally a big cauliflower fan but something wonderful happens when it's paired with quality bacon and I figured that this would be the sort of place to enjoy it. The pasta was eggy and fresh. Parmesan crumbs finished it off with a crunch of texture. I'm definitely going to try some variation on this at home, now.
