Ideas in my head that I can't seem to pin down... write down one thing yet while in the middle of it, it comes out something different than you imagined, and WAY better.

BleuBerryBacon Burgers, with a toasted, brioche bun, alfalfa sprouts, avocado and a couple leaves of butter lettuce...and a light smear of blueberry bbq sauce.

Those luscious Brussels Sprouts that I learned a long time ago, that just improved as I tweaked it.

Southern Fried Quail Legs with Corn Cake and Radish-Apple Slaw, and Quince Vinaigrette

Spanish Chorizo in Malbec with Papas Rojo

Pan Toasted Green Beans with Sea Salt and Pink Peppercorns

Curried Duck Confit-Bok Choy Wontons

Bar Food....Skewers, things on sticks. Sweet, savory, make them DRINK MORE.

Paint brushes the sauce on the plate..same stroke over and over..sliced avocado
fanned out at 11 oclock..charred and blackened duck breast, cooked rare, and bloody, sliced on the bias fanned across the middle of the 9in square...chopped daikon-cucumber and Thai-chile-vinaigrette in the 5 oclock...rough chopped cilantro litters the plate. Maybe a stray Lemon verbena leaf, or kaffir lime chopped....

I'm fixing a hole where the rain came in to stop my mind from wandering...
