It is Curious

Yesterday, I had planned on taking a day off. I had planned on doing a few things around the house, and spending most of the day out side. That did not happen, because I kept getting distracted by things at work, and ended up working most of the day.
I did leave the office around 4:45 though, and took a nice nap before going to dinner with my friend James at Chef Scott's new noodle house. If you are not familiar with Chef Scott of Ocean Springs, you should be. He runs a neat little sushi shop down town that has such an uncommon and tasty array of sushi. It is not your average sushi shop with coastal infused rolls with names like sex on the beach and fall in love rolls. The sushi shop was not his beginning to the culinary world. According to James, he used to work in the Kitchen in the White House. Anyways, this noodle house he has is real low key, and serves traditional vietnamese noodles. It is super affordable, and very tasty. The man knows what he is doing. While we were eating, Chef Scott came out of the kitchen to greet everyone in his new restaurant. He came to our table, refilled my tea pot, and noticed that James was eating Pad Thai. He quickly got a little dish, squirted some of his modified hoisin sause and saracha in to it, grabbed James' fork, and dipped a little of his pad thai into the new mixture. James tasted it, and loved it. I got a bite too, and it was delicious. The food was deliciously simple, but that experience made the meal!

We left the noodle shop, picked up Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and headed for a relaxing evening in front of the television. If you have not seen that movie, you should. It is so heart wrenching, and heart warming. It is also one of those hauntingly beautiful movies set in New Orleans, so that makes it even better.

Thats it for now.
