it was the most amazing experience!
We ordered two appetizers, seared scallops in pea, tomato, and corn, and the chilled peach soup, but we were also given the “kentukiyaki” pig ear lettuce wraps, the fried chicken skins, and the pimento cheese and bacon jam covered crostinis. All of which were amazing. The scallops are always made to perfection, kentukiyaki was so interesting and good. The crostinis were oh lawd mighty heaven.
I wish I had felt better tonight, but what other ways that to lift your health and spirits than with the magic of husk?
We got geechie boy grits covered in cheese and bacon and skillet cornbread at the table. I got this amazingly perfectly crispy chicken in farro (my first farro!) with peaches and get this BOILED PEANUT JUS. Derek got the catfish with leeks, okra, corn, and butter peas.
For desert we had chocolate sponge cake magic in a glass bowl.
Everything was amazing. Everything is always amazing. I could barely finish my food.
I’ve just been so stressed about everything that’s happening lately, and I’m on a low loop of insomnia lately, so I didn’t feel amazing, but Derek is so fucking sweet and he made me feel great, and he always makes me laugh.
It is going to suck to say goodbye to him.
But I get to go to Europe, and everything will be great for both of us.
Now I’m going to search the house for any leftover sleeping aids…
