Thread: Inauguration Lunch?

    Default Inauguration Lunch?

    So what are those of us who are celebrating going to have for lunch on
    Tuesday? The best I can come up with is Chicago deep-dish pizza from Uno via
    Dining In. Someone has to have a better idea.

    I wanted to do that, but my local Whole Foods was all out of humble.

    Is it true that Americans call bumble bees "humble bees"?

    Barack and Michelle had dinner last night at Equinox, which is
    reportedly around the corner from Blair House. The menu is here:
    http://www.equinoxrestaurant.com/men...nox_dinner.pdf

    For starters, I'd probably go with the Cream of Parsnip and Granny
    Smith Apple Soup with In-House Duck Confit, Roasted Shallots and Apple
    Julienne

    Next, would be the Grilled Striploin of All Natural Beef with Slow
    Roasted Potato Pave, English Walnut Butter and Wilted Arrowleaf
    Spinach

    Then I'd finish with the Bittersweet Chocolate-Praline Terrine with
    White Chocolate Quenelle, Gianduja Chocolate Sauce, and Crispy Cocoa
    Tuille

    These things are offered on the dinner menu, though. Lunch is out
    there someplace nearby. I wonder what he ordered?

    Anyhow, I'd like to drink a bottle or two of Audacity of Hops brew.
    It's an "inauguale," or so I've read:
    http://humblegourmand.com/blog/2009/...es-inaugurale/
    Note that it's flavored with coffee -- beans from Kenya, Hawaii, and
    Indonesia -- and with "Progress" and "Liberty" hops, which allegedly
    are varieties of hops. I wouldn't know.

    Without wanting to drag this thread even further off-topic...

    I really hate wasps.

    At least we don't have hornets here.

    Very close to half the population of the US will not be celebrating. I
    expect close to 100% are hoping for the best however.

    It's pretty sad how the perception of the election is drastically
    different when the reality is that it was only a few percent further
    apart than the election folks still haven't stopped bitching about.
    Those few percent can largely be attributed to those voting based on the
    novelty factor of making a historic election, and not on political
    positions.

    The US is no less divided than it was in 2000, and unless something
    dramatic happens (a president with a permanent tan isn't dramatic), I
    don't see any sort of national cohesion forming to bring the masses in
    from the polarized extremes.
    It's a scary thought to imagine how W.W.II would have turned out if the
    US population was as polarized as it is today. Today we face challenges
    at least as great as those in W.W.II and the future does not look good
    no matter who we have in the White House.

    I'd go for Chicago style hot dogs, complete with the irredescent green
    relish.

    I'd go with the Chef's Market Menu, mainly because this is the time of year
    for short ribs, and they don't appear on the regular menu:

    Cream of Parsnip and Granny Smith Apple Soup with In-House Duck Confit
    Roasted Shallots, and Apple Julienne

    Pan Fried Rappahannock Oysters with Caper-Parsley Butter, Celery Root Puree,
    Golden Pineapple, and Celery Leaf Salad

    36 Hour Braised Beef Shortribs with Potato Mousseline, Path Valley "Sugar
    Snax" Carrots, and Red Wine Braising Jus

    Roasted Medallions of Marcho Farms Veal Loin with Parsnip Mousseline,
    Caramelized Cauliflower, and Grilled Oyster Mushrooms

    Puff Pastry "Cannoli" with Passionfruit Pastry Cream, Moscato-Scented
    Pomegranate, and Kiwi

    Yeah. At least bumble bees die after they sting you. Wasps can get you
    again and again.

    > At least we don't have hornets here.


    I watched my idiot sister throw a green walnut at a hornet's nest. I
    guess I was about twelve so she'd have been 10 or 11.

    I don't think she thought she'd actually hit it but she did. Pegged it
    dead center. So all thee hornets come boiling out and both of us were
    already backing up. But this one hornet must've been watching because
    he, erm, made a bee line towards her. Came straight in like a bullet
    and stung her right between the eyebrows.

    She looked like an incipient unicorn for a couple three days but I'd say
    she got off easy.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornet

    Actions to avoid

    * Disturbing a nest (including vibrations and loud noises)
    * Being within a few meters of a nest
    * Disturbing or killing a hornet within a few meters of a nest
    * Blocking the path of a hornet
    * Breathing on the nest or hornet
    * Rapid air movements

    Err... "breathing on the nest or hornet"??

    I'll be at work - it's a PD day. Food will be catered in, but no deep
    dish pizza or anything else that remotely reminds anyone of Chicago.
