I met up with a former work colleague, Mukai san, for dinner this week. My only requests were that we go to an authentic Japanese restaurant and that he do all the ordering. Success! We went to Cocoro and it was fantastic.

It doesn't get much better than having this little guy as your valentine :-) I headed to Ann Arbor this weekend to visit Melissa and Elias and had a fantastic time!
We had a great dinner watching the Olympics (main purpose of the trip!)
Ryde Cycling, we came back to have breakfast with Elias. He's already taking shots of water in his Michigan shot glass.
Zingerman's - a classic spot - in Ann Arbor for lunch. It was incredible!
After a great church service at 242, we went for a little pampering :-)

My lovely friend Elese had a dinner party last night where her friend Suresh joined a bunch of ladies to cook for us. Roast chicken was on the menu.
Bridget was Suresh's student in the kitchen.
We were also celebrating Stephanie's new job!! Congrats!
While we were waiting for the chicken to cook, we enjoyed an amazing cheese plate.
Cheers to the chef!
And Bridget did a great job on the brussels sprouts.
Thanks for a great night Elese!!

On the first day of my new project for work I was walking around and ran into Cliff, who had been in my training class. He'd been on this project since October and hadn't made it to the city once. This had to change obviously, and restaurant week was the perfect occasion. Cliff said he liked seafood, so G.T. Fish and Oyster was the natural choice....and it was amazing!
Our appetizers were tuna poke and a shrimp bruschetta.
Soup and salad course was clam chowder and seared tuna nicoise salad.
We both got the mahi mahi with black rice for our main.
Definitely a night of great company and great food!
