Minx Mischief at Lurcat
Dang I had a great time tonight (uh, technically last night) at Lurcat with Kim & Suz. We spiffed and spritzed up a bit and sashayed into the sparkly bar, ready for gazpacho with anchovy toasts, mini-burgers, and frites with naughty Bearnaise for dipping. Went down like buttah (Bearnaise!), baby, sooo good. Especially the brrrgrrrs, on home-made potato rolls, slathered in shallot-red wine butter, rarrr (recipe here).
Right in the middle of our cacklefest, in walked Kevin & Kristi Hykes, great to see them (haven’t since the Badger Blast last fall)! No community blocks of cheese to bite into, and no podcast mic (Kevin checked under the bun of a burger, ha), just quick hellos before they joined another couple for din.
About half-way through our evening, we somehow wandered into the topic of Eddie Murphy’s rendition (are there others?) of Boogie in Your Butt. Real classy, that song, and yet…20 years after first hearing it (Cami played it for me in our freshman dorm at UW), it’s still absolutely slaying me. I mean, we cried we were laughing so hard, just like the first time I heard it. Take a hot cup of Brim, fill it to the rim… Luckily, upon hopping in my car for the drive home, we were able to pull it up on my iPod. A little Lake of the Isles’ scenery, little Boogie in Your Butt, and poof, we were home, just like that. Awww, it always goes too fast when I’m out with my minxes. Thanks for a great night – and deeelicious food, uff I’m stuffed – miladies!
You know, I did remember to pick up my veggie share, but I have yet to go through it. Too tired, more tomorrow on what little gems await me…
Moderate it: I figure when I dine a la Kim & Suz, I burn so many calories laughing that I don’t worry so much about what I’ve ordered. Therefore the frites with Bearnaise. Therefore the chocolate profiteroles with salted caramel ice cream. Urgh. Hahahahaha (that’s the sound of me, you know, burning more calories)…
Pour a cool glass of wine,
Sip it, while you dine
Then put it in your butt
Another fabulous night with my friends--put a pomme frite in your butt!
