Back Again

How does a week go by with no posts? Sorry about that. I seem to be easily distracted these days, and it didn’t help that we headed to New York on Thursday night. I made a list of seven blog items that I didn’t get to. Now there are more. Maybe I’ll get to some of them tomorrow, as well as newer items.

As for our trip, there’s not much to report. We took the JetBlue red-eye to JFK, leaving around 10:00 PM and getting in around 6:15 AM Friday morning. The occasion of the trip was the celebration of my mother’s 90th birthday. Various family members arrived, we saw some of them Friday, saw them all Saturday. Gail flew back late Saturday night. Joel and I followed early Sunday (yesterday) morning, allowing us all to converge just after noon yesterday for Easter dinner at Bahama Breeze, in Southcenter mall near the airport.

Given my continuing fascination with upscale American chain restaurants, and with the Darden family of restaurants in particular, I need some time to write at length about Bahama Breeze. To my continuing astonishment, I’m a fan of the place. And I never wrote about our initial exploration of the fanciest of Darden’s restaurant suite, The Capital Grille. There’s one downtown that we tried on a Saturday night in late February, right after my return from one of my trips to Dallas. We need to visit again before I write about it. As for Bahama Breeze, I love their jerk chicken pasta: “Sliced jerk chicken breast, fresh asparagus and mushrooms tossed in a rich parmesan-herb cream sauce with bow-tie pasta.” They always have a fresh fish menu, with typically three fish options and a number of preparations to choose from. Yesterday I had the almond-crusted halibut. Plus I always start with some orange-strawberry drink that I can’t find in the on-line menu, so I can’t describe it properly at the moment. It’s good.

More travel at the end of the month, to DC and perhaps elsewhere. I hope to be blogging more frequently between now and then.
