Last night I went out to dinner with T– from Brilliance to this amazing restaurant in Muskegon called Mia and Grace. It’s a very small dining room that features organic, farm-to-table cooking, and pretty much everything made on site. The food was nicely balanced and interesting without being “interesting” if you know what I mean.
I had a lavender-vanilla bean creme soda that was really lovely. We started with the local cheese plate, moved on to a beet carpacio salad that flirted with perfect, and I had their gnocchi with spinach. For dessert a true key lime pie.
Highly recommend the restaurant, if you are in the area.
Today we finished recording An Artificial Night around four-thirty. This pleases me because they had scheduled three and a half days and it only took three. It really is funny how I can read smoothly for three pages and then hit a sentence that I can’t seem to get out.
After work C– drove me into Grand Rapids on his way home and dropped me at a coffee shop. Merrie Haskell came to fetch me and take me back to her lake cottage for a little bit of relaxation before heading back to Portland tomorrow.
All in all, it’s been a very good trip.
