Dinner with friends

Monday was a big hoopdeedoo for the Alaska Brewery's new package of their Alaskan Amber beer and half the town turned out. Luckily, we ran into our friends Candy and Dick, and while trying to figure out when would be a good evening to go to dinner at their house, realized RIGHT THEN would be a good evening to go to dinner at their house. We downed the beers (excellent IPA) and ran home to pick up some wine and then went over to conserve electricity by having BBQ'd pork tenderloin in the twilight at their house with their daughter Amanda.(The photo is a bit blurry due to the dimness, I am sure, rather than the beers.)

Candy made a gingery marinade/sauce for the perfectly done pork, a wonderful spinach salad with strawberries and balsamic vinegar and goat cheese pronounced better than the one at Island Pub, which is good but can't hold a candle to Candy's. We chatted into the evening, concluding that Rotary is worth the bother when you get to meet such nice people through the organization. (Candy was Rotary president the same year as John and we have become friends through that connection.)

"Incredibly relaxing and nothing better than good dinner among friends with polite and easy conversation, although I prefer not knowing that someone is wetting their pants every time I send them an email" said John.
