Cutting the Congressional pork
Our election party was a success and, actually, it was such a success that I failed to take any good pictures. Our friend Petros won the prize for best politically-themed dish: Congressional pork (tenderloin) stuffed with arugula, blue cheese, and sun dried tomatoes. The impressive number of political references alone would have won the prize, but the fact that it was also delicious pushed it over the edge. The best part of the night was seeing Obama win and toasting him with champagne (obviously, the McCain supporters at our party weren't thrilled). In general, I am too cynical to believe that Obama is an entirely different kind of politician or that he will magically cure all of our country's problems, but I'm excited about helping to elect him and everything that means for our country.
