Eggs & Rice and The Auction

This morning, I was feeling a little under the weather thanks to red wine, margaritas, and a gigante chimichanga. So Dan whipped up a new breakfast favorite of ours, inspired by (no surprise), the cuisine of Hawai`i.

It's a simple, satisfying breakfast of steamed white rice, with a fried egg on top, and some soy sauce (and if my tummy was feeling better, some hot sauce, too.

Our dinner tonight was a really nice buffet at the Sweet Pea Cottage auction, which our friends Anna & Jason invited us to. Sweet Pea is a day care/preschool on Queen Anne that focuses on the arts, though the kids get a very well rounded education and a lot of love and support. Anna works in administration there, and our friends Josh and Julia are both teachers... and we've met a lot of the other staff over the past couple years, too. I even went one day a couple Summers back with a menagerie of insects and other arthropods for a day all about bugs (the last time my BS in Entomology came in handy). The auction was a lot of fun. We met some really nice parents at our table, did some bidding on lower cost items, and watched some high rollers toss around thousands of dollars - which is a bizarre spectacle.

Sadly, we completely forgot to take any pictures. But we had a blast, and would definitely do it again next year.
