Isaac and I left Ventura, California, on Sunday afternoon.We drive all day, and sleep in the truck at a rest stop near Donner Pass. The Donner Family Restaurant always makes me smile. I wonder what's on the menue.
Combine everything. Bring to a boil. Share with passersby. Let's pause for dinner. Lots of playa girls wanted to play with my fire stick.
We arrive at Black Rock City Monday afternoon. And set up a wonderful camp. Isaac starts to makes some Black Rock Soup. We started out with a well-scrubbed small black rock from the Playa, added water to our largest sauce pan and took turns choosing ingredients. Hot, spicy, sour, and full of garlic, it was delicious. Here's the recipe:
Black Rock Soup
six mashed garlic cloves
four corn tortillas, shredded
one small can hot and spicy V-8
one big leaf hot pickled Korean cabbage, diced (Isaac brought some)
oregano, a handful
black pepper, lots
garlic salt, another handful
A mighty dust storm smashes the absinthe bar. Everybody grab something...
...and move it to the Ranger camp next door.
It's all good on the Playa.
Featured drink at this year's Absinthe bar.    An absinthe pousse-cafe flambe. 6-layers: grenadine, butterscotch schnapps, blue curacao, creme de banana, creme de menthe, absinthe. Flame on! .
A mighty dust storm smashed Wednesday's rehersal for Fridays' big fire performance.
But that didn't stop Cody. An awesome performer, she inspired me to try fire dancing, taught me some moves, and helped me with my equipment.
Combine everything. Bring to a boil. Share with passersby. Let's pause for dinner.
