Here in San Ramon, Mom pretty took care of everything for dinner. While she was cooking, Lav and I polished off some leftovers from yesterday and also had some incredibly fresh pistacchios from Santa Barbara, courtesy of Ron and Joyce. I love Mom's cooking; nothing can match the way it hits the spot like good comfort food should... a great final meal in the Bay Area, perfect in its simplicity and familiarity.
