Lunch on Pine Street
Chris made this salad for lunch yesterday and said that the paints were part of the presentation.  She used a couple of hard boiled eggs I made the day before.  My method of cooking hard boiled eggs is an adaption of the Cooks Magazine shallow boiled method.  Click this link to look at the method.  Note that these eggs are steamed for 8 minutes rather than the 10 minutes in the recipe.

Each of the thousands of terra cotta warriors have individual facial features which lead people to believe they were modelled after real people.  This one  seems like a nice guy.

Terra Cotta Warriors Exhibit opens
This Friday the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit from China opens at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.  I was at the museum last week for my docent training and I saw them installing this in the North Court.  The horses and charriot are reproductions of the original items, but the actual terra cotta warriers are the real thing.

Offerings at B Patisserie
After the crepe place closed on California Street near our home, we were wondering what would take its place.  Then a sign appeared that said B Patisserie would be opening a bakery and cafe.  Anxiously we watched as the remodelling s l o w l y moved along.  Sunday I was going out for a walk and someone told me it was open - so of course we went to check it out.
