On the 6th Day of Lights Out…


Late this afternoon, we were finally graced with our electricity!  As cliche as this sounds, it is true, you never know how wonderful something is until it’s gone.   I must say that there were benefits to not having power.  Something I really enjoyed, that we usually do not do, since I also love to cook, was eating out at restaurants.   I am so amazed at what outstanding establishments we have in our neighborhood of West Seattle.   I just want to send a little kudos to the following restaurants we had the pleasure of dining at these past 6 days and nights.   

Angelina’s Trattoria at 2311 California Avenue SW, Seattle.  We enjoyed a hot breakfast out of our cold house.  My favorite is the Alki Scramble which includes smoked salmon and caramelized onions.  Angelina’s is a favorite breakfast spot for our family.  They do have great lunch and dinners, too.

The Blackbird Bistro at 2329 California Avenue SW, Seattle.  Probably one of the best Reuben Sandwiches I’ve ever had.  My step son loved the mac and cheese!

The Mission  at 2325 California Avenue SW, Seattle.  Tasty Latin food.  We only had the Nachos…I’m sure we’ll be back for more.  Great atmosphere.

Cactus Restaurants at 2820 Alki Avenue SW, Seattle.   Excellent service and the food was great too.  My husband had beef tacos that were so fresh and I had the Chicken Fried Chicken with Chorizo Gravy (I’ll be doing extra sit ups for that dinner).

I guess with the power out and cooking being inconvenient, I really appreciate how fine our meals were at these establishments.   How lucky are we to have such high quality restaurants in such a small neighborhood…these are just a few we happened to visit from lack of power.
