Wow, what a night! Joe Wessels and his friend Mike, in town from California, put together an awesome spread and a fantastically relaxed atmosphere for everyone.

We ate kidney bean, yam, and soy sauce burritos, which may sound strange, but are unbelievably good. With them we had all the necessary sides – rice, guac, salsa – and a rich salad of field greens, gorgonzola, pear, and caramelized walnuts. For dessert, I finally got to try that ’80s classic, dump cake, for the very first time. I couldn’t help but go back for seconds. (Perhaps the entire pound of butter it contained was what I found so moreish…)

There were plenty of cameras on the scene, and I’ll post links to photo collections as they go online. For now, mine are here.

UPDATE: Bob 5chw4r7z’s pics are here. Thanks, Bob!

Stay tuned for details of the next supper, which will be up on Monday!
