All is well again on the South Hill..
After a loooong hiatus, I returned to Two-Seven-Five.
The waitress reassuranced me that the recipe had not been altered, so I ordered the corn pasta salad as my accompaniment. Yes, it was my old favorite. "Kick" and all.

Original Post: Dated July 2008

Here's the way I looked at it. The Elk opened on the South Hill. If you happened to read my review of the Elk, you'd know I am passionate about the place, and especially about the corn pasta salad as my favorite meal accompaniment. So when I heard the buzz about a South Hill location to be called The Two Seven Public House, I was thrilled. The atmosphere is similar (laid back and unpretentious) and the menu (whew) was almost identical.

But today was a sad day. My corn pasta salad was very different. Elbow noodles and NO KICK. That's right, somebody didn't follow the recipe. It was so very wrong and yes, its that important.
FYI - if you're curious about this corn pasta salad I'm going on about, here's the recipe with the kick. Its from their web site http://www.wedonthaveone.com/ I like having the recipe, but frankly I'd rather have them make it for me.
Hopefully, the South Hill chef will see this and make the necessary adjustments.
Save the corn pasta salad!

ROASTED CORN PASTA SALAD
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
4 1/2 cups uncooked fusilli
1 cups mayo1 bunch cilantro roughly stemmed
2 Tablespoons chipotle puree (the kick)
Salt to taste
1) Combine corn, onions, butter and oil and roast in a 400 degree oven until onions are translucent and tender. Remove from oven and cool in refrigerator.
2) Cook fusilli as directed and cool under running water.
3) Combine cilantro, chipotle and may on food processor and puree.
4) Mix fusilli, corn/onion mix and puree ingredients. Add salt to taste.

(The kick)--Chipotle puree is canned chipotle peppers usually found in the Mexican section of most grocery stores. Before using place the contents of the can in a food processor and puree well.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Urban Living - Spokane Style 

This was fun! Our story and loft was featured in the Inlander Health & Home magazine. Thank you to Blythe Thimsen, writer and Young Kwak, photographer. We are also very grateful to Heather Hanley of the Tin Roof for helping us design our space. Our ensuite coffee lounge even made the cover. Additionally, the other featured urban space was one of my downtown listings. ♥️

Laurie and James Allen’s new home in Kendall Yards offers lots of light and quick access to all that downtown Spokane has to offer.

A Vibrant Downtown Lifestyle is Luring Residents Back to Spokane's City Center.
"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…

Art Matters...

Collecting ART is addictive but never regrettable. With ART, the regret I do have is from the pieces I talked myself out of. I have a few sad stories of inexpensive ART I passed on and now the artist's work is spendy. Buying ART is not extravagant or reserved for the wealthy. For me, it's just I have my priorities straight. Think about how much ART you could own if you didn't have cable, that unused landline and you limited the times a barista made your coffee.

When embarking on collecting art - start small. Buying student art is an inexpensive way to get original art. Its like listening to a talented yet unsigned musician in a dive bar prior to making it it big. You very well could be investing in and therefore encouraging the ART world's next big thing. Buying local art enriches your community and supports the local ART scene. Incorporating original ART in your home adds an unmatched warmth, texture and depth to your space.

ART MATTERS. I know my life is richer bec…
