My folks are in town, no one really seemed to know what was going on, and I have a migraine. We decided everyone should come over here and we’d get takeout, so I could lie around and be spaced out on headache drugs if necessary. When my mom, dad, sister and the Magnani’s arrived, they had brought a lovely radicchio salad and the fixings for csa bok choi with the most delicious re-constituted shiitake mushrooms by my cousin Kirst. All of it went beautifully well with sushi from Spicy Shallot.

For dessert we had extra-chocolatey chip cookies that Rose and Shane made, and early-birthday surprise of Canelles from Canelle Bakery.
