at risk of this becoming a running blog

I have now run 25 minutes straight 4 times in a row. That is mind-boggling.

Also, a fearsome necessity given the number of fully-loaded Chicago hot dogs and pieces of passionfruit layer cake I ate at our party this weekend. Heh heh.

Frontera Grill – sparkling passion and chicken soup

Friday, June 4th, 2010

We had the usual array of delightful things at Frontera Grill last night, but two things stood out clearly. One was a chicken soup appetizer that arrived glowing verdantly with bits of avocado and some leafy item. It tasted of rich, strong chicken broth and had bits of crisped chicken skin floating in there along with the vegetables. Spectacularly good.

The other was a cocktail made of Harpoon IPA, passionfruit juice, fresh lime, and hibiscus tea to tint it pink. Luscious, with a hint of bitter hops and bubbles cutting through the sweet passionfruit. Perfect for summertime.
