December 12, 2009: Puerto Rican Feast at John & Carrie's

Our friends John Cloud (often referred to by either his full name or just "Cloud" because well, his last name is so cool) and Carrie invited our little unit over for dinner. Not just any dinner, but a special Puerto Rican influenced feast! John who is a multi-talented artist and musician ( search Facebook for Frail Soul) has recently been learning the art of cooking in this style, which was initially prompted by a visit to the Bay Area's best, and perhaps only Puerto Rican restaurant, Sol Food. On a side note if you haven't tried it yet, do yourself a favor and go (

Anyways, John made several dishes for us, including marinated chicken and tri-tip, rice and beans and a Puerto Rican specialty, mofongo!

We were truly impressed with the authentic flavors and lovely presentation. After we stuffed ourselves silly, we hung out enjoying each others company and got more familiar with John and Carrie's self proclaimed "zoo," including turtles, birds and a bunny. We also watched the most amazing episode of "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack" entitled "Rye Ruv Ru" for the first time and have since seen it multiple times. Check this out also!

It was a great pre-holiday gathering hanging out with awesome friends who showed us a wonderful time!  Thanks you two!
