We went to Figo’s on Saturday night and discovered that they had changed their menu up a little bit. They had some new sauces. And of course they had their daily specials. On the daily specials was Gazpacho. I capitalize it because I love Gazpacho. Figo’s did not disappoint. It was smooth and blended through with no chunks. There was no sour cream but Figo’s did use the red pepper infused olive oil that they use for dipping bread into. With pasta sauces, I like the simplest of sauces, basically olive oil as a base. Figo’s had a Aglio Olio e Peperoncino sauce which is garlic, extra virgin olive oil and red pepper flakes with parmigiano reggiano. Yummy!
Here’s the scully on Boober. He didn’t like it much but it’s such a cute picture.

“It’s OK to quit…..” June 14, 2009
1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect
their position and keep it moving!
2. Quit telling people your secrets when you know they are not going
to keep them! And if you keep telling them, then quit getting mad when
they tell your secrets!
3. Quit trying to pull people on your journey who don’t want to travel
with you. Either they believe in you and value you…or they don’t!
A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked
“How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.
The lecturer replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.
It depends on how long you try to hold it.
This Sunday morning we went to Pastries a Go Go in Decatur for brunch. I know I gained some weight when I left. Hilary had a craving for waffles and we went there to take care of it. She also had a half order of the biscuit and gravy. I had the traditional southern plate with a side of cheese grits. Pastries is know for their biscuits and they did not disappoint. So back to the waffles, she had the malted belgium waffles with fresh fruits. Craving is taken care of.
While eating we sat next to a friendly couple. We talked about pregnancy and taking care of newborns. They were really nice and a joy to talk with. They wished us well. They are regulars at Pastries so we know where to find them if we ever need some good encouraging words.
Recently Saba, a pasta joint with traditional and creative dishes, opened in Oakhurst. It’s located in the space that was once Calavino’s. Saba has handmade pastas, great sandwiches, homade desserts among other things on their menu. Dinner, brunch, and lunch is available but check first, Oakhurst doesn’t have lunch hours.
I write about Saba because we went to the one in Emory Village. We’ve gone there before and we will make it to the one in Oakhurst soon. We left full and content. We had the 4 cheese ravioli and the eggplant ravioli in Vindaloo and pesto sauce. The eggplant dish was creative especially with a mix of vondaloo and pesto. I also had a bowl of their gazpacho which is one of my favorite soups, ever! Add to that a side of homemade potato chips and chocolate chip canoli’s; we were hapily full.
Multiracial people become fastest-growing US group June 9, 2009
This is an interesting article that Hilary had stumbled upon. The article was in Yahoo News and was about Multiracial Americans. Since we have 2 on the way, the article is a keeper for the twins.
