Ahhhh, Gainsbourg!

Living in the Greenwood area has allowed our family to consolidate many of our daily routines. Grocery shopping, workouts, dentist, a great toy store, pharmacy, and several fantastic restaurants.For the adults, there is the 21-and over French restaurant Gainsbourg, named after the French singer, songwriter, pianist, film composer, poet, painter, screenwriter, writer, actor and director. It is a dark and sexy venue with vintage French music, foreign films on the back wall, and it is Maribeth and my favorite haunt when we need to walk out of the house for an hour or two.When Maribeth got out of the hospital, I walked her past this place. She had no idea what it was, and my heart almost broke. A month later, we walked past and she remarked,”Is this the place we used to go…?” but with little interest. Another month passed and I had taken her there once to eat, but quickly as we were late for a play.Not too long after this, her memory had improved to the point where she was hauling most of her family, and friends from work to Gainsbourg for drinks (try the Alain Delon or Jacques Dutronc if you take to rye or bourbon), onion soup, croque monsieur, steak frites, more drinks (French 75!) and salted caramel cheesecake. And cafe.I am pretty sure our marriage is quite secure, but I can’t say that it hasn’t been salvaged from further damage many times due to a spontaneous Date Night walk to Gainsbourg!

We did finish that 🥗

I am the husband and father of a lovely family of 5, living in the Greenwood area of Seattle. We are all recovering from the effects of encephalitis having struck our lovely Wife/Mom. We are coming along, together, to recovery in many ways. We have been broken, but not destroyed! Finding our bond of love through cooking and eating together, and with friends, we will recover, stronger together than before!
