Dinner at Lebanon & Beyond

Dinner gets its own separate post because it was my favorite meal of the trip.
We ordered vegetarian platters for the table to share, and everything was amazing. Will & Amelia were with us.




Highlights included the eggplant, cauliflower, and cabbage rolls. YUM.

Dinner and a play

Dinner was at Fix St James. The menu was interesting and the place was so loud we couldn’t hear across the table. For a while I couldn’t figure out what to order. (Bone marrow, anyone?) But I got an entree for my main, which is the Australian version of saying I got an appetizer for my entree, and it was an heirloom tomato with cucumber, avocado and goat cheese. That thing was amazing. I remembered to take a photo when it was about half eaten.


Our dinner companion was Vicki, a friend of Robert’s who travels with him sometimes.


The play was Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, at the Theater Royal.

The play took place on a giant turntable with minimal sets and Australian accents. Odd to hear characters talk about growing up in Mississippi and going to Ole Miss in an Australian accent.

Baking eggs

Found a new method for hard boiling eggs, that doesn’t involve boiling. I can’t seem to get hard-boiled eggs to come out right. So, thanks to the tip found on the web, I put the eggs in a muffin pan, and put the pan in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes. The eggs come out, and go into a cold water bath for 10 minutes. They peel easily after that, and the egg is cooked perfectly.
