November 29, 2012Thursday_Cindy wanted to get Christopher Kimball's newest cookbook for Jimmy for Christmas, but signed so, away we went to a Mountain View bookstore whose name I forget to do just that. He gave a wonderful talk, the place was packed, apparently he does this once every year, and Jimmy will be sooooo happy when he gets his book.

It was!! Did you and your family have a good time?

I like the croissants vs. biscuits in the first photo and the pink short and bow tie in the second. The author looks like he can tell a good story.

Lunardi's croissants, a lovely store here that is something more than a regular grocery store.

Christopher Kimball, who used to be very heavy but is now very thin and a pretty nice dresser, is the host of America's Test Kitchen, who's recipes are the only ones Jimmy will use for cooking. Mr. Kimball does tell a good story, mainly talking about how the book came about and the show, but he also answered questions, if a little tersely at times. You can tell, he doesn't suffer fools, or at least what he views as foolish questions, easily, but he makes people laugh and that's good.

What made him terse? I love a bitchy book host answering questions.

it seemed that some of the things people thought were important, he didn't and he would answer such questions far more succinctly, briskly, than the questions he thought important. Sadly, not bitchy.

Lovely tablescape! And I LOVE Chris Kimball & Cook's Kitchen!

Cindy does set a lovely table filled with delicious food also so, win/ win and yeah, Mr. Kimball gave a terrific little talk, answering a bunch of question to a full house although I must confess to never having really watched the show. I went mainly went to keep Cindy company and am I glad I did, she took me for ice cream afterwards!!!

I love the pic of the table and it's so cool that you got the signed book with pics to go with it. :D

Cindy's going to include the photos with the book in Jimmy present so, that'll be nice as they came out pretty good considering the all that was going on around us, our limited time with him and that awful lighting. I had to say to Mr. Kimball, 'come on, smile!' because I'm not sure he would have given me that half grin otherwise :D

Cindy does set a lovely table with delicious food so YAY!! and yes, you are right, it is a very nice gift. Jimmy will be thrilled.

Mmm, yummy Thanksgiving spread!

Very yum yummy Thanksgiving spread! And all we are allowed to bring is the stuffing ;D

Oh YAY, the built dude with the Santa hat is back!!!

Haha, yes, Santa!Jake Gyllenhaal is making his perennial appearance. I love this time of year. :-D

Isn't it great when you can get just the perfect gift for someone? And a unique gift at that.

The Thanksgiving table looks pretty both with and without the food...which looks tasty and delicious. FanSee

Jimmy has very definite tastes and this book is perfect as he will only cook from America's Test Kitchen recipes AND he's into chemistry!! On the other hand, I have no idea what to get Lauren...meh.

Dinner was lovely and, for us, pain-free as all we are allowed to bring is the stuffing, which David and Lauren make, a Puerto Rican version called Monfongo made with plantains and bacon...nom nom.

I'm sure your was as lovely.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I did sweetie, thank you. We always celebrate with the same people, which I find I actually like because when young like you, it was something different every year, which was pretty cool too, now that I think about it :)

Yours was good, yes? although as I recall, you didn't go home this year.

Yes I had a good Thanksgiving with friends! I do end up celebrating with different people every year. My family is not big into Thanksgiving so I don't feel the pressure, as much, to head home.

Now we have Christmas to look forward to!

Both events were wonderful. I was very happy that Cindy found the perfect gift for Jimmy and that I could help her out by going along, she didn't want to go on her own. Now, if I could only think of something equally as cool for Lauren.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dinner looks delicious!

Dinner was delicious and was gone within less than half an hour after this photo was taken :) I hope yours was too.
