We enjoyed first an appetizer of mirza ghasemi (not pictured), smoked eggplant dish with tomatos, garlic and
onions with some ground turmeric, dash of cinnamon, salt & pepper and olive oil.
Our main course was a bed of steaming saffron basmati rice and a beef stew, khoresht-e gheime, beef, split chick
peas, tomatos and paste, seasonings (salt, pepper, turmeric, olive oil), along with dried lemons that are left to simmer
in the stew and add a sour flavor
The second dish we enjoyed was grilled chicken breast garnished with saffron citrus glaze. served over lavaash, a
thin bread, with sprigs of mint and tarragon, a grilled tomato, and mast o khiar, yoghurt with dried mint, salt, and
cucumber, and of course sumac to add a lemony spice to the meal.
We headed to Dark Horse for some espressos. The barrista pulled a shot for me, then one for snow, and decided the
one for snow wasn't up to his standards.
Little did we know his standards consisted of warmed motor oil...

My enabling powers were too weak after lunch, I couldn't convince him to forego the snowtuck(TM) and
go for the m.a+ staple ankle boots were great with the small hem openings he has. But I recharged my abilities
with the bubble tea and our snowman may soon be in possession of an iphone5
Miran was also to join us for lunch. But he was baned from attending this event, in accordance with Styleforum policy and
the will of the moderators....He showed up but security quickly had him removed (deleted from the premises). The only
remaining evidence was this fisherman's cap

It's itchy a bit in the neck, but nowhere else and it's overall not anything I would worry about. It's definitely not a luxe wool or anything like that - this is a woodchopping and fish wrangling sweater (can also be used at grandma's 85th b-day dinner, such as today )
