Dining with Doug at 38 Central ~ Cheeseburger Day

Good 48º little tiny clouds morning.

Maggie and I headed out early to the vets for her suture removal...
Let's hope that is the end of surgeries for my girl!
Today is 9-18.... a radio code for 'insane person'. 417 and 918 is a dangerous combination. But, that describes a lot of my friends! LOL. A few ago it was 9:18 on 9-18.

Yesterday I met Nancy and PJ at PJ's and we drove to Medford. We arrived at '38 Central' and had a glass of wine. Jeannie and Bill got there and then Larraine and her daughters. This was a fund raiser for 'Doug Breidenthal for Commissioner'. We were all seated at the only table for 8. So, here we were, Bill and seven women!

L-R Larraine, Denise, Debbie, PJ, Nancy, me, Jeannie, and of course... Bill! (he looks miffed, but he really did enjoy the meal! and...he got home in time to see the Monday Night Football!)

Doug arrived but his wife was working til about 8pm. Darn.

His campaign manager, Laura, was there. So nice. Glad I got to finally meet her!

And I got to visit a bit with old friends, Jan and Sal Esquivel. Sal serves in the Oregon House of Representatives for District 6, which is Medford. Jan is past President of JCRW.

Dinner was WONDERFUL! Salad of fresh mixed greens, salmon was on a bed of tri color orzo with a lemon sauce and spinach, and dessert was 'flourless' chocolate cake with raspberry sauce! OMGood!
Denise and Bill had the tri tip which they both said was really good. I will go back to this place! AND... I heard their 'mac & cheese' is awesome! I met Dave, the owner, nice guy~!

The restaurant, serving lunch and dinner, is at 6th and Central. If you park in the structure on 6th Street you can enter the restaurant from the first floor of the parking structure.

September 18th
National Cheeseburger Day
(In-N-Out ... be still my heart!)

... Hmmm... how about a Greek Cheeseburger....

These burgers are deliciously seasoned with oregano, onion and garlic. They're topped with crumbled feta cheese and fresh baby spinach for even greater flavor. That and a glass of retsina... HEAVEN!

(Retsina is a unique wine product made almost exclusively in Greece. It is made with a base of white or rosé wine that is flavored with pine resin. The wine is quite pungent, and not to everyone's taste. However, the Greeks have been making and drinking it for over three thousand years, and people often find it more enjoyable when it is paired with Greek foods. Retsina also varies widely in quality, and an inferior product can taste suspiciously like turpentine. Consulting the staff at a Greek wine store may be the best way to find a good wine.   
The name for retsina is derived from a Latin word, resina. The official explanation for the drink has it roots in early wine making practices. Lacking airtight containers for fermentation, many early white wines soured as a result of exposure to oxygen. To stave off this problem, wine makers covered their wine jugs in pine pitch, the same material used to waterproof boats. The pitch effectively sealed the containers so that the wine did not spoil, and consumers developed a taste for the resulting resinous wine.)

9-18 (Insane person!)

Sorry, blog will be late today. Off his am to have Maggie's sutures removed.
