Food, meet friends.

I’ve been in the process of making a black forest cake for the past couple of days. On Thursday night, I baked a chocolate génoise cake. On Friday night, I cut the cooled cake into three layers, made the soaking syrup and whipped cream and assembled the cake. This afternoon, I turned six ounces of bittersweet chocolate into shavings and pressed them all over the outside. Then we brought my preferred German-themed dessert (pfft, German chocolate cake) to an Oktoberfest party—at which homemade brats, sauerbraten and the most amazing potatoes ever were being served. I really want one of those brats right now… Awesome food, funny games, good time.

Also excitement-making: the fish tacos and beef chimichangas at Tommy’s, green tea and oolong-walnut mooncakes, lamb masala at Shalimar of India and chocolate—always chocolate!

Tomorrow morning is apple picking. Hopefully good appley things to come.
